Philippe is a FANTASTIC instructor! He makes learning French so much fun and the conversations are always enjoyable. He is patient and doesn't make you feel bad when you make a mistake. He is encouraging and provides constructive feedback, ensuring his lessons are tailored to your level. He also gives great TV/movie recommendations for outside the classroom!

It was a joy to have Philippe as my tutor for two weeks when I had to brush up my French before my FSI test. I'm a native speaker, but the conversations with Philippe were always engaging and fun. He also gave me some good tips on how to ace the test. His personal approach to tutoring and passion for the language made our conversations all the more interesting.
