*Please note: I’ve just joined _______.

I was born and raised in Paris, France where I completed my BA with honors in literature and philosophy at Lycée Louis Bascan. I continued my study of philosophy at the Sorbonne before relocating to the UK where I attended the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art.

My interest in education came from the amazing and generous teachers that I was fortunate enough to have had in my youth. These educators had an infectious passion for their work and the subject matters at hand. Due to this, I've had the privilege of helping students, assisting individuals in realizing their own potential. I’ve also managed to follow their progress and watch them integrate into some of the top universities around the world.

I began tutoring with Equilibrium TLC in 2010 . I’ve since worked with them in the UK, USA and Switzerland. I specialize in French, philosophy, reading comprehension and history (TFI, GRE, GED, SAT, ACT). I taught French to all ages, from children to adults.

Years of teaching experience have made me acquire a lot of different methodologies. It has also taught me how to communicate and empathize with wide variety of people. I pride myself in being easy to work with, and willing to tailor my approach to your needs. I'm always happy to share my trade with others and provide a nurturing, supportive and fun environment.

Edward is friendly, outgoing and patient. He assisted me in preparing monologues and with various acting work, including scenes and exercises. Definitely helped me over come nerves/fears. Would recommend for anyone seeking lessons in acting!

Fantastic tutor, clearly a man whose dedication to his craft is admirable. Not only is he knowledgeable in a variety of acting methodologies but also a great communicator and teacher. Very easy to work with, great sense of humour and willing to tailor his approach to your needs.
