I was born and raised in Menton, a small town in the south of France close to Italy. As an adult, I lived in Paris for a decade before spending a few years travelling around the world. Today I am settled in Brighton, in the south of England. I have been teaching French online for several years, full-time since the beginning of 2018. I was trained by the Alliance-Française Foundation, world-renowned for the quality of its teachings of the French language since 1883. As of September 2022, I have worked with 440 students for 4000+ hours.

Raphaël is great. He's quite attuned, so even when I hit a roadblock with the language, conversation feels easy. One of my goals is to be able to enjoy films and TV. He gave me a YouTube video to watch and then discuss at the next lesson. The video was the perfect length and level to push me towards better comprehension of more complex and informal media.

A really useful lesson, lots of underpinning information, reinforcing what I know and new information. The structure of the lessons gives lots of opportunities for reading, listening and testing what you have learnt, in a relaxed and fun way. Brilliant! Thank you.

Raphaël has a wonderful approach to teaching. He uses a textbook and provides a very structured environment to ensure the student actually understands what they are learning. He helps you get the details right as you learn but also provides tips and guidance on focusing on the things you do know for real-world situations. Working with him already relives much stress and makes me feel that I can learn French!

Raphael's lesson was very helpful. His explanations were concise and effective. He let me go at my own pace and clarified any questions I had in a straightforward and understandable way. Merci beaucoup.
