Bonjour, my name is Philippe Perrin. I am a French citizen living in Dublin, a native French speaker, with 6 years tutoring experience.


I offer a broad range of teaching skills to assist your child to progress from beginners to advance students.

My private personalised tutoring experience for your child or your teenager is designed to assist in learning

and to improve in the French language.

As an enthusiastic tutor I make sure that your child feels comfortable and developes in a learning environment. Depending on their age and level, I teach on play-based methods, games or songs as well as grammar, phonology, pronunciation, reading, spelling, vocabulary, ...


I work with your child to assess their needs and goals. I believe creative lessons help students retain more and enjoy their time learning. I am extremely patient, very friendly, easy to work with and make learning fun.

I also help in Mathematics and Geography homework, etc...

Experienced, Patient, Friendly, Determined and Fun

I grew up in Paris with a passion in gymnastic. At 16 I moved with my family to La Roche Sur Yon where I finished my studies. My love for language brought me around the world. I currently live in South Dublin with my  foundness of the Irish culture and its people.


I have an Irish born daughter named Maeve who is now 15 years old. So when I am not working in the French school (L.F.I.) or giving grinds to my students, I spend a lot of time with my daughter having long conversations in French and English. We discuss different topics in particular her nostalgic time at L.F.I. where she studied for 7 years and made a lots of friends, some of whom has since moved around the world, thus giving me a special in site into the teenager world. She is now pupil in John Scottus and enjoys having this Franco-Irish rich culture.


When I am not teaching I enjoy sports such as cycling, running, tennis. I am also a keen follow of world current affairs.

I am passionate about learning languages and tutoring. I love teaching French all my students, from preschoolers to teens using different teaching methods adapting to the specified age group.





Philippe is an excellent and dedicated teacher and my three children have really benefitted from his tutoring in French this year. He is very reliable and very patient but firm.


I really wanted my kids to learn french,Philippe has a gentle way of teaching that is both educational and fun.Jake and Sophia look forward to seeing philippe and learn french every week.
