Patrick is patient, kind, but also challenging. I very much enjoy our lessons together and highly recommend him for all levels of French instruction.Sep 17, 2019Verified
I am in the early stages of my french lessons with Patrick and I am utterly excited and impressed. He is an easy-going teacher and just has the ability to pull the french out of me (even though it's been years since I last practiced and I have been very self-conscious of my french). I look forward to many more lessons and I feel Patrick will undoubtedly help me become proficient in French. Merci Patrick!Jan 9, 2020Verified
I love working with Patrick! He is so helpful and made me feel so comfortable during our lessons. Can’t wait to continue working with him, and I would recommend him to anyone who wants to learn French!Aug 28, 2019Verified
My first lesson was easy to arrange and it was a pleasure to work with Patrick. He made the lesson fun and interesting and I look forward to many more lessons! He provided some great resources for me to purchase from Amazon and a lecture which really helped for reading comprehension and my pronunciation. I have a lot of work to do, but I'm certain to soon appreciate more confidence in speaking French!Feb 14, 2020Verified
I very much enjoyed my first French lesson w/ Patrick. He was prompt, professional yet accessible, non-intimidating, patient and responsive. I expect to enjoy my future lessons, as well as improve my French.Jul 18, 2019Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My price is reasonable in line with pricing in NYC and I can eventually create a package to accommodate your budget.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Make the student comfortable, present the material in a way that they will find it interesting. Teach at first the basic. Grammar, verbs, vocabulary, writings and reading pronunciation and fluidity. Find out what the student really needs and help him to achieve his goal. Work together to discover what areas on wich to concentrate. I can create a lesson plan to guide you through your learning process. I believe everyone has the potential to achieve success.
