Jeff, St Peter, Minnesota, June 2016

As a recent retiree from academia and Francophile, it was my extreme fortune to spend three lovely weeks in Aix recently, with the goal of improving my French while there. Philippe was my “professeur”. I was very fortunate to have encountered Philippe, because he is a very patient and effective teacher, and he is a very kind, open and “sympa” person. He tailored my instruction to my own needs and my own level, and he has the professional’s eye to discern his students’ needs. And he has a great sense of humor as well. Very cool guy. Philippe’s interests and areas of expertise are very wide-ranging – I am not surprised that we had so many areas of commonality. If you are looking for an instructor in languages, mathematics, physics, chemistry, or several other areas, it would be hard to find a better person than Philippe.
