I have been teaching for over ten years and most recently for USG officers on a one-on-one basis, as well as in group setting. In addition I conduct online classes for them as well as for private students, whose levels range from beginners to level 4. Born, raised and educated in France, my style is unique as I adapt myself to the student's needs, creating lessons plans based on the student's abilities and progress. I emphasis speaking over all. I measure progress on a regular basis, so as to adjust myself to the students strengths and helping the student to reach the assigned goal.

I have been taking private lessons with Philippe after taking group lessons with him through ILI. He has been incredibly helpful at getting my French back up to speed and sending additional resources outside of lessons for me to continue learning. He adapts our lessons based on areas for improvement so each lesson is different and may incorporate writing, listening, or reading along with speaking portions.

I took French lessons with Philippe twice a week for almost 2 years. My objective was to develop my banking/business French. I exceeded my own goals, and Philippe exceeded my own expectations of what I wanted from a teacher. Together, we wrote mock correspondence imitating scenarios from my daily work, as well as discussed news and current events relevant to my work. He was very helpful in increasing my vocabulary and strengthening my writing skills. This ultimately allowed me to forge closer relationships with my French speaking clients and perform my job to the best of my ability. I would recommend Philippe to anyone without hesitation, but especially to anyone in the finance/banking/business field.

Philippe is very thoughtful, and shares lots of ideas and links to complement the lessons.
