" As a certified ESOL teacher, I am both knowledgeable about and experienced in teaching a second language, but I learned a lot from Edwige, not just about French, but also about teaching. She is a gifted teacher with unerring insights into a student’s strengths and weaknesses and effective, creative methods to address those areas. These skills are underscored by her calm competence and genuine warmth and generosity."

My philosophy

As a Native speaker, my teaching isn’t just about ingraining information into students’ minds for them to memorize — it’s about providing them with the tools they need in order to think critically and succeed. I am trained in NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), an approach that involves analyzing strategies used by successful individuals and applying them to reach a personal goal.

I offer lessons tailored to your needs. I am particularly committed to developing your oral communication and listening skills.

It is also very important for me that you feel confident and that you take pleasure in the learning process!
