Our Teachers


Experienced French Teacher, whom obtained her diploma in London at International House.
Using an interactive methodology, my aim to captivate the attention of the students in order to learn effectively new points of vocabulary and grammar.
After 7 years of experience in Uk, Italy, Spain and now in Switzerland, I offer logical and interesting classes, all set up in a context, with listening, writing exercises always contextualised. From business class to leisure tuition, I used a large variety of support and didactic practices to help the students to improve quickly and be able to use the language right away.


I am a certified trainer for adults: I teach French as a Foreign Language (FLE) from level A1 to C1 (private and group lessons), I have students from different nationalities.
I have a Bachelor’s degree in English; I worked in diplomatic Embassies and have been member of a writing workshop for ten years: I write short stories in French.
I am Swiss, NLP (Neuro-Linguistic programming) practionner and coach.
Of course, to be in possession of these tools help me in creating and maintaining good relationships with my students.
I am a very patient teacher, I accompany my students with softness, I adopt a program tailored to their needs, I focus on conversation.
In order to do so, I encourage and help students to repeat the same English sentence in French.
A touch of humour is essential in my courses, I use different supports to prepare my lessons: one part of the lesson is prepared, the other part is ”open “: it depends on what will emerge during the class.
Grammatical points are not treated in a traditional way: when, during a conversation, it appears that a point of grammar needs to be treated, we work on it.
Each situation needs specific vocabulary, and each student has specific goals to reach.
My students speak more than me; my role is to guide them in order to help them cope with their daily lives.
We can’t do bad work when we are happy and motivated to see our students, and love our job!
