The week I spent in Switzerland with Raymonde was the highlight of my 3 weeks in Switzerland and France!  Raymonde is a warm, incredibly friendly and welcoming person who made me feel not only comfortable in her home but welcome in her family.  She’s a terrific teacher who quickly assessed by weaknesses and tailored lessons to address each one.  We spent a great deal of time together not only in a tutoring setting but in everyday activities such as grocery shopping, morning walks, sharing meals together, and, of course, eating ice cream (I think Raymonde knows ALL the best ice cream places in Nyon! )  My week with Raymonde was a very valuable experience for me since I’m not one to readily engage in conversations in French – but with Raymonde, I had no choice, and it was great.   At the end of the week I felt more confident in my ability to communicate in French thanks to Raymonde’s thoughtful careful guidance.  Merci beaucoup, Raymonde !!!
