“My youngest daughter has been in Madame Pinover’s class for the last 2 years. She loves the class and loves Edwige. My interactions with Edwige have been professional and friendly. She makes learning a language fun and interactive. They play games and have to speak in class which can be the most challenging part. My daughter loves French and will continue in the Fall.” -A.B.

“The teacher was very nice and very competent in speech and made my child feel enthusiastic and welcome in class.” -S. P-F. (Rockville, MD)
“Mrs. Pinover was very supportive of my son and encouraged him to continue practicing his skills. She introduced him to the language through music, food, culture, and games. He loved her class and his French skills did improve. In short my son spoke highly of Mrs. Pinover and enjoyed her class. Her class was always the first one I heard about at the end of the day. His love of the language and desire to learn was only enhanced by her class.” -L.D. (Manassas Park, VA)
