Bonjour et Enchanté

My name is Fabrice and I am excited that you are considering French lessons with me.

French is not just a beautiful language, it is a culture and people rich in Liberté, Egalité, and Fraternité. With all of my students, we not only explore the richness of the language but also the expansiveness and depth of the culture, people, and of course the country.

I am confident in my ability to help you learn French in easy and fun lessons. I have helped students of all ages, most of whom have little to no experience with the language. Today, many of these, same, students are well versed in conversational French and able to read, write, speak, and explore the language and culture in ways they didn’t imagine. I have also worked with students who have a good understanding of the language and wish to brush-up on their skills or work to perfect the language as a native speaker.

I apply numerous strategies that will depend on how you like to learn, however, I ...

About Fabrice

Bonjour! Native to Le Mans, France, the rillettes region, I began my teaching career in 2014, using both the online and in-person platforms. I have also worked in an independent private school and in a liberal arts college as an advanced French teacher in New York State. Before my teaching career

Fabrice is an excellent tutor for my two young boys, very patient, playful and with a clear plan for each lesson. He is super accommodating as far as schedule goes and did I mention patient.. oh I did. :) It is worth repeating! We will definitely be continuing and are grateful to have found him! Merci Fabrice !
Michelle
Fabrice is the ultimate French teacher. He’s a native speaker who brings, not only language, but wonderful tidbits of French culture to learning experience. He has geared tutoring sessions to meet my needs and interests. He is knowledgeable, interesting and funny. You won’t be disappointed!
Jon
I started taking French lessons with Fabrice three years ago when I was planning a trip to France to visit my in-law’s. After about three weeks, I had the confidence and basic language skills to feel comfortable speaking to native French speakers. About one month before my trip, I was speaking French pretty much fluently. Fabrice is personable, kind and very passionate about teaching French. His strategies, weekly challenges and attention to detail really have made this an enjoyable experience that I have continued with him for the past 3 years. Merci beaucoup Fabrice for being an awesome, qualified and competent French teacher. I recommend Fabrice without hesitation.

My son looks forward to his French lessons with David. After being a virtual student during Covid-19, my son returned to school this year to find he was behind the students who went in-person last year. My son had a lot of anxiety from falling behind but said David “makes it (catching up) fun.”

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.

Philippe is a great teacher. I am trying to regain my French and get to the point of conversation. He is always looking for ways that fit the way I learn and is always encouraging and enthusiastic.
Michele
Philippe truly has been the best instructor I have had for French. He always treated me with respect and kept the course work fresh and interesting. He used a variety of techniques and was intuitive enough to know what worked best for me. He was patient and never pushed beyond my patience! He exceeds expectations, always sending additional resources outside of the course. He's available whenever you need him. He's kind, generous, and I can't wait to start another course with Philippe!
Sanaz
Philipe has been great in our first few lessons. He makes me feel comfortable and he gives a lot of very helpful resources to read/practice/listen to outside of the lesson. I am an intermediate speaker looking to practice and gain back my conversational abilities and he has been very helpful so far in getting my speaking going again!

I can speak four languages, so I understand what it is like to learn a new language which is what makes me an excellent French tutor and teacher. Being born and raised in Belgium it was not optional in my Flemish or English-speaking schools to not learn French from 5-10th grade. French was the most difficult for me to learn how to write but I am grateful for the French tutor I had growing up. Therefore, I want to do the same for others. I truly believe in the power of believing in others because eventually, they could excel in a subject they never thought they could which has a big impact on one's self-esteem and opportunities. It would be my honor to help you grow and learn French!

"I am extremely glad that I signed up for online lessons with Roman. After studying 5 sessions with Roman, I feel confident that I am on my way to learning French. I can speak a little French and also form basic sentences with the correct grammar. The pace of the class is also good. Learning a language as an adult has its own challenges. Roman is patient and as an excellent instructor does not make you feel uncomfortable during the learning process. If you have doubts whether you can learn French online with Roman , I hope this review helps you in making a better decision."

French Grammar Rules: How to Conjugate Common Irregular Verbs

Last week, French tutor Carol Beth L. treated us to a great lesson on conjugating regular verbs. This week, we look at conjugating common irregular French verbs... French grammar is full of irregularities and exceptions. They make sense when you understand the phonetic and grammatical in's and out's of the language, but can still be difficult to navigate – especially at the beginning. Covering every single irregular French verb out there, therefore, is a difficult task to tackle in just one …
