Introduction: My name is Patrick, and I was born and educated in Paris, France. My native language is French, and English is my second language. I am proficient in Italian as well as Spanish, and I have been teaching French since 2002. My teaching motto: You can achieve anything you set your mind to. Patience is a virtue. My primary goal is to provide the highest-quality language to my learners in a fun, nurturing, and culturally-rich environment. My students' ages vary. I have taught beginners (as young as age 8) as well as adults who work with corporations sending managers, directors, and senior executives that travel to France. I have successfully taught adults in business to comfortably speak conversational French. I also work with business executives as an interpreter. Level taught: beginner, intermediate, advance and corporate. I design my lessons to varying students' goals. I can help with accent correction, pronunciation and fluidity. I also teach grammar, vocabulary, assist with readings, writings, translations and interpretations. I find this approach works for varying situations, and I utilize differentiated instruction. Everyone learns at a different pace. My goal is to challenge you and make you comfortable as I present the material in a way that you'll find it interesting as you grasp the language. I hope you will understand French, feel comfortable in using it in the classroom, casual business interaction, or in general conversation if you are planning a pleasure or business trip to France. I enjoy French literature and I incorporate it into my lessons, I find that students can relate to different things such as art, history ,music, cinema, food and wine or fashion. There is so much to discover! I only teach what I know the best: the French language and the French culture. I have live in the United States for several years. I can help you to compare both countries and establish linguistic and cultural bridges between them.

Learning French with Patrick is a pleasure from the first lesson! I highly recommend him to anyone who wants to learn French as he teaches from the heart and makes every lesson customized to the student. I look forward to all my future lessons with him. Merci beaucoup, Patrick ! :)

French Lessons

I was nervous to start learning French as I have had no experience with the language, however, I was immediately put at ease by Patrick’s approach to teaching and pleasant disposition. We stayed on task and packed in a lot of technical information, but with a good balance of conversation to ensure It wasn’t too rigorous and remained engaging and entertaining. I look forward to continuing lessons!

French Lessons

Patrick is very patient and encouraging in his French lessons. Those are important qualities to have in any teacher. He loves to provide information on French culture, history, and other French dialects from other countries. Though he focuses on French from France, particularly Paris. I would absolutely recommend him if you’re wanting to learn! He’s flexible with scheduling lessons, and moves at a comfortable pace.

French Lessons

I had my first class with Patrick this week and he exceeded my expectations in every way. I have not studied French in over a decade and I’m excited to continue taking classes twice a week with him. Patrick was quick to respond to my inquiry, flexible with the schedule, reasonable cost and such a professional, yet funny teacher. I would recommend him to anyone looking to take French lessons.
