Teaching since:
2003

I’m 44 years old. I moved from Geneva, Switzerland a year ago for my husband’s work. He’s a pediatric clinical and research physician at VCU (MCV). I’m the mother of two teenagers at the Steward's School. We are a native French speaking family.
I have worked since 1999 as a pediatric nurse and a nursing instructor for critical care children and neonates.
I have Swiss degrees in nursing, paediatric, critical care, lactation consultant and pedagogy/teaching.
I would love to tutor to share my knowledge of French language and culture, using my pedagogical background and a good sense of humour.

Evelyne volunteered at my daughter’s school while in Canada. She liked to be involved and useful in different school activities involving children of various age groups. She is very reliable and was always patient with the kids. Her love of children was clearly visible at all times. Perhaps more importantly, the children adored her too. Her intelligence, caring nature, sense of humour and her ability to adapt very quickly to the children’s needs makes it easy to highly recommend her for tutoring.

Evelyne is such a wondeful teacher -- patient, empathetic and encouraging. We feel quite lucky to have found her. Learning and truly comprehending a new language is challenging and frustrating at times and she's really made a tremendous difference in a short time.
