Bio

My name is Philippe. I am a native French speaker, born in France. I studied under the classical French educational system, graduating with a baccalaureate in French literature and philosophy at the Lycée Français de New York. I then completed a bachelor's degree in Asian Studies and modern languages (French, Spanish, Mandarin).

I studied under the classical French educational system, graduating with a baccalaureate in French literature and philosophy at the Lycée Français de New York. I then completed a bachelor's degree in Asian Studies and modern languages (French, Spanish, Mandarin). After taking an early retirement from my career in international trade, I decided to focus my efforts on teaching and enrolled in S-TESL's post-graduate degree program as an L2 (second language) teacher. I have been teaching French intermediate conversation and advanced French conversation/literature at the Women's University Club in Seattle for the past five years. In addition I teach high school and adult students French and Spanish. I apply proven TPRS and CI methods in teaching my students. I have been a member of ACTFL (American Council for the Teaching of Foreign Languages) for the past six years.

Great tutor

I appreciate how nice he was (I've had a lot of rude tutors) and he has a lot of experience. Recommended!

Tara, 5 lessons with Philippe

Kind, knowledgeable

Philippe is a kind and positive teacher. He is super patient and knowledgeable. He is a joy to bring home and add knowledge to our Saturday mornings! Thanks Philippe! Both Tim and I appreciate your services very much.

Excellent tutor with great experience in teaching - knowledgeable and patient

Philippe tutors me French each Saturday. He is an excellent tutor with great experience in teaching. He is very patient when I ask questions. I personally find that French grammar is difficult, but Philippe explains grammar to me with different examples. His teaching is systematic and also creative. When I told him that I loved to read chapter books, he immediately introduced me some reading materials. I really appreciate Philippe's efforts in tutoring me French. Learning French from a native speaker is a right way to learn a foreign language. Thanks Philippe for all your help. I would highly recommend you to anyone who loves to learn French.

Great tutor

Philippe is proficient in English and understands the complexities of teaching someone for whom English is not their native language. During the lessons, he patiently waits for me to express myself since I speak slowly looking for the right words. In addition, he points out my mistakes at the right time for me and tells me the correct expression. This method is very useful in helping me to improve my conversation skills.

NAOKO, 11 lessons with Philippe

Great tutor!

My son said that Philippe is a good interactive tutor. The activities are verbal as well as written which helps him feel more comfortable when reading and answering questions in class. The exercises aren't too strenuous but they focus on the needs of the student.

Knowledgeable & Patient Tutor

Philippe is a patient & kind mentor & has worked with my daughter in a way that she now looks forward to her tutor sessions. Philippe possesses an incredible enthusiasm for the French language & has rekindled that same enthusiasm with our daughter. He provides work sheets, exercises, and even activities all involving speaking French. I highly recommend Philippe as he is truly a gifted tutor. My daughter has already seen an improvement in her work @ school after just two sessions with Phillipe :)
