Mr,Djeng is an excellent tutor - very patient and thorough. He spent extra time analyzing my speech and is a great listener and is narrowing down my problem areas. He is also good about giving me plenty of resources for outside of class. Very good lesson.

Elcane is an amazing teacher. He makes you feel comfortable straight away, is able to quickly analyze your strengths and weaknesses, and has exercises ready to go. I could tell that he had prepared different materials in advance so that he could customize a personal plan for me. Blown away by the high quality.
Kiren kaced
Elcane is a fantastic teacher and I would highly recommend him. He has a thorough understanding of the French language and grammar, which he is able to explain in simple terms. In addition, he provides well structured lessons, prepared in advance, to make the learning experience very effective. As we go through each lesson he makes a note of new vocabulary and any language errors which we review at the end of every lesson. He is also very personable and easy to talk to.

Private French Teacher

I was born and raised in Nice, France. I arrived in the United States in 2010, to study music in California. I just received my doctorate from the University of Miami.

I have taught French to foreign people in France since I was 18 years old (my mother has been doing that for over 30 years now) and since I arrived here to adults and students. I was also a French tutor during my Bachelor, Master and Doctorate programs.

Through private lessons I can help you get ready for exams and midterms, help you improve your french or just offer you to have a conversation with a native speaker. I love my culture and would love to share it with you if you are interested.

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.

Cindy
Thanks to Philippe, I was able speak & (importantly) understand French during a recent trip to Paris! That is the ultimate "success story" for me (and anyone who wants to learn to confidently use French in day to day life). I took very helpful group lessons with him for beg/int levels, and then started private lessons to enable me to focus on areas of particular need & interest. Philippe has enabled me to comfortably speak, understand, read & write in French - no easy task! I appreciate that he hones in on exactly what each individual needs and wants to learn. He is also very kind, genial, and patient always! In addition to the time spent in class, he sends various types of information - grammar pointers, news stories (written & audio), French TV, etc - all of which allow the student to learn both in & out of class -- and in a very engaging, pleasant way. I am continuing on with the lessons to truly master the language and my ability to interact using all forms of communication. Philippe listens carefully and tailors lessons (& supplemental info) to make sure the student reaches his/her goals. Above all, it is a worthwhile and fun journey to having confidence & competency in French language and culture. I recommend Philippe's lessons most highly!
Grace
Philippe is a wonderful French teacher. We've been doing French for several months and my language abilities have noticeably improved. He knows your limits and when to push past them. Not only is he a great teacher, he's also hilarious, which makes making mistakes more funny than embarrassing.
Joy
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.

"Roman tutored me in French twice a week for several months. He was teaching me the fundamentals of the language in preparation for a planned three week trip to France. I had studied French many years ago in high school so I was essentially a beginner.
Roman came to my home for two hour lessons. He was never late. He was patient and kind but persistent in pushing me to do the best I could. He always had a lesson outline with lots of excellent study material to leave with me after each lesson.
At one point he had to go back to his home for family matters. During that time he stayed in contact and send lessons via the Internet. The lessons always included homework assignments which he would correct and send back to me, there was no charge to me for these efforts. He's a fair and honest man as well as an excellent teacher.
My trip to France was a richer and more rewarding experience as a result of his efforts. In addition to the language instruction he gave me a good deal of information about regions to visit, places to see, and restaurants use.
I have no reservation in recommending Roman as a teacher as well as a fine human being to be associated with."

"I’ve had seven or eight formal French instructors at various points in my life, and I have to say Philippe was by far the best. I worked with him online for several hours a week over a few months to recover forgotten French and push ahead in new areas. He was extremely responsive and flexible, got straight to the heart of what skills I needed to work on, and was a genuine pleasure to have as an instructor.
Let me be the first to say if you’re considering a language instructor, look no further."

"There three major reasons why I am so happy with the classes:
1. Every session Roman manages to make me work really hard without any stress or pressure.
2. I only pay for classes but get much more: class supporting materials, various activities that are always very fun, homework, work sheets, grammar presentation etc.
3. I spent four years in school leaning French but could never speak it. After my third class with Roman I was already interacting with him using the language!"

Ultimate Guide to Studying French Pronunciation Online

Ask any student their biggest struggle in learning French and you're guaranteed to hear one thing - pronunciation. Pronunciation is one of the hardest aspects of learning any foreign language. As babies, our minds are very receptive to learning how to identify and reproduce the numerous sounds contained in a language. This ability diminishes early in childhood, making it more challenging for second language learners to learn how to accurately pronounce sounds that are not present in t …
