About Philippe

As a native French speaker, I have a very vivid passion for French language and culture, and there is one thing I love even more, it is transmitting this passion. I have a successful history of tutoring and sport coaching because, in my book, it is never hard to pass down your passions to someone else who is eager to learn. My expertise working with kids and young adult is one of my many strengths. My past of professional athlete and my hobbies usually help me to be respected by my pupils. I am honest and dedicated in everything I do ... like tutoring.

A native speaker now living in the US for a while, I started as a freelance translator and French software QA testing because I am a good linguist. I did few substitutes at different French schools and successfully taught French lessons to a few private clients.

Back in Europe, volleyball was my team sport. Since I was 6 years old, I used to train and play a lot for various local clubs, like 3 times per week + games during the weekend and ended up being several times in youth elites team of my country. I have a very good personal technique, a global vision of the game and know how an athletic mind and body should work together to progress. "Mens sana in corpore sano."

I look forward hearing from you and discuss how we will help you to achieve excellence in your studies or drastically improve your game level.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Volleyball

I was playing volleyball as my main sport in various clubs from 6 years old until my early 20's, logging 3 trainings per week and a least one game on the weekend. Being one of the best players in age categories, we won several province titles and several national champion titles as a teenager. We have been trained by lots of former international players, logging experience and exposed to different game approaches. I ended my high school in a sport-studies configuration where my major was Volleyball. I have a very good personal technic and global vision on the game. I have successfully coached young adults as a summer job when I was younger.
