French tutor offering guided, virtual study help and classes in Portland, OR

Methodology

I work with ALL levels (beginner, intermediate, advanced + A1-C2). If you're just hearing about le passé composé for the first time, if you need help writing un commentaire composé , or if you just want a conversation buddy, I'm your tutor!

Background

Bonjour! I'm a French speaker with +7 years of French language experience as a tutor, translator, and writer. I finished my B.A. in French and Communication in 2018, and since then I've been giving lessons to French students and speakers in-person and online. My students appreciate that I mix grammar with culture to add a fun flair to my teaching approach. I worked in France after studying abroad in Versailles, so I've got the travel credentials to back up my teaching.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $30/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $100

Details

I offer an initial 30-minute consultation to assess your language concerns and needs BEFORE tutoring begins. In this session, I ask you questions about your language goals to assess your level before I create a unique study plan for you.

Olivia has been tutoring me in French for almost one year, and it's been fun to have her as a tutor. She’s very knowledgeable, dependable, and optimistic. She was a great motivator and continued to help me do my best and make connections that helped me understand the language a lot better!

As a native french speaker, I can definitely recommend Olivia Olivia to motivate you to learn French! She's very passionate about learning herself and dedicated to every person she met. Olivia and I were living in the French House for a whole academic year together, and as she helped me improve my English, she was also always willing to step outside of her comfort zone and speak French with me on all occasions (with a very good accent!). She's always positive, kind-hearted and a wonderful person everyone should be grateful to meet. Bisous!
