Edite is the best!Justin, 59 lessons with EditeI have been taking weekly French lessons with Edite for 4 months, and I couldn't be happier. She always shows up on time with a fabulous attitude, and she makes our lessons something to look forward to. Even though I'm not a very good student, I've gone from speaking hardly any French to being able to read and converse at a basic level. And I've had fun doing it. I highly recommend Edite to anyone looking for a French tutor in the D.C. area! You won't be disappointed! -JustinI have been taking weekly French lessons with Edite for 4 months, and I couldn't be happier.

Bonjour Justin, je vous remercie infiniment for your kind and nice review. You are a natural in languages, and an extraordinary quick learner. That’s what makes my job so much easier with you.

Hello and welcome to my page! My name is Edite (pronounced - Eedeet). I have a degree in Accounting (Cum Laude) and I used that knowledge while I worked at Marriott Headquarters for 14 years. My real passion is languages: I speak four, and in addition one creole and one dialect. I am a native Portuguese speaker and U.S. citizen. I worked for the United Nations for 11 years where I came in contact with many different languages and cultures. I am also a United Nations French proficiency certified linguist. I've been teaching languages for many years and I am, currently, an adjunct faculty member at two Community Colleges (Anne Arundel’s & Prince George’s). As a Phi Kappa Phi scholar, I have been a mentor at University of Maryland G.C. and will always be committed to serving my community and beyond.
I am a patient and very enthusiastic tutor that opts for classes that are fun and easy to follow with an extremely pleasant and positive attitude. I am a people's person, so I love to share the excitement that I have for my tutoring subjects and am able to derive value from seeing my students succeed. I use my detailed oriented accounting background in my teaching approach. Everyone is different with their individual learning style. Therefore, my classes are custom-made as I adjust them to each student's challenges, preferred learning style and pace. Believe me, nothing replaces the one-on-one learning interaction.

I loved being able to converse in French with her. She was patient with my “broken French” and refreshed my mind with forgotten vocabulary words and grammar! I’m so excited to continue my sessions with her!Janice, 13 lessons with Edite

Edite is a very thoughtful, professional and knowledgeable. Makes class fun and time flies as she teaches me Portuguese. The textbooks assigned are full of the basics and Edite makes sure by the end of the lesson the subject matter is well rounded.Melinda, 28 lessons with Edite
Edite is teaching me to speak the Portuguese language. I learn in a unique way, thus requiring from Edite the patience and tactics to meet my specific needs. As a tutor, she masters this challenge with grace and dignity, while contemporaneously keeping the sessions enjoyable. I could not have asked for a better human being to teach me. Muito Obrigado Edite! (Thank you very much, Edite!)Steve, 38 lessons with EditeTutor responded:
Muito obrigada Steve, for giving me this opportunity to work with you! I adjust my teaching to each student’s needs and pace. I also like challenges, and you provide me with quite a few. Thanks for getting me into analyzing Luís de Camões’ unique writing style - very interesting!
Edite has been tutoring my daughter in Portuguese for nearly a year. Jennifer’s love of the language, and her skill, have both grown tremendously under Edite’s tutoring. She makes the 90-minute lessons engaging and fun - one of the highlights of my high-schooler’s week.Steve, 78 lessons with EditeTutor responded:
Muito obrigada pelas suas palavras tão amáveis! It has been an absolute pleasure working with Jennifer! She works hard with a delightful attitude, always eager to learn more about the roots and history of the words. She is a very special, talented young lady, a natural at language learning, and she should definitely take full advantage of it. Thank you so much for giving me this opportunity to serve your family!

Edite is a very patient tutor. Edite finds out first the background of the student and adapts the class to the student's background. This makes the class more productive and enjoyable.Jorge, 5 lessons with EditeTutor responded:
