About Me

Hello everyone!

I'm Gil, 37 years old and I come from Geneva, a beautiful city in the French-speaking part of Switzerland. I've been teaching French here on Verbling since 2016 and travelling around the world since 2014 !

I am constantly immersed in different languages ​​and cultures, I always have to adapt and find ways to communicate effectively. This helps me to put myself in my student's shoes and anticipate their difficulties.

My teaching techniques involve either a structured or a flexible approach depending on your particular needs and goals.

The best reward I get from my work is the satisfaction of helping others improve their quality of life either by getting a better job, passing a French exam, building the courage to start a new life in a different country or simply feeling confident when speaking in French.

I would be very happy to meet you and help you in your French journey wherever it may lead us !

I hope you will read some of my student's reviews !

Send me a message if you have any questions and maybe book a trial lesson !

“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”

Hope to hear from you soon,

Gil

My trial lessons

During the first part of my trial lessons, I get to know my student. During the second part I listen carefully to his/her goals and propose a way of reaching them. Depending on the remaining time, we do trial exercises and a little feedback on the trial lesson.
