About Evelyne

I am a native French professional linguist. I worked for the United Nations and other international and non-governmental organizations in New York, Geneva (Switzerland), Addis-Ababa (Ethiopia) and Bangkok (Thailand) in that capacity for 20 years. I recently moved to Asheville and teach French privately.

Having studied 6 languages myself, I have a unique perspective on how the mind processes languages. My teaching style varies with the age of the student, his/her skill level, but always takes into account the student's goal and preferred study habits.

Knowing French doesn't make a person proficient at teaching it. Which is why, I believe, most students do not remember the foreign language they learned in school. The brain processes a language in a very different way from that which is taught in schools, where the emphasis is more on preparing the student for an exam than giving him/her language skills.

I come with excellent references from past and present students.

Wonderful in every respect.

Evelyne is patient, kind, and knows her stuff. Very happy we found her. She's close by, very flexible, and a wonderful teacher for my daughter. The teaching materials are first rate, and looking forward to more lessons.
