English, French, Exam Prep & Basisschool German Lessons

I specialize in helping students from elementary school all the way through high school for their final exams. I take a very practical and less theoretical approach to teaching since this is the least tended to aspect of learning a language in school. I have taught for 4 years in an elementary school with ages 7-11 and also done tutoring with students in middle and high school for 5 years.

I adapt to the personality of the student and always hope to develop close ties so as to base this teaching on facts but also on trust.

French, English and German are my mother tongues and I have basic understanding of Spanish and Dutch as well.

About Me

I am a young and experienced language teacher who started out doing all elementary school replacements for teachers in a private bilingual school in Paris for four years and was even given my own class of students at one point. I went on tutoring young adults in middle and high school and preparing them for exams in French, English and German.
I studied sociology and linguistics and have been lucky enough to be perfectly trilingual since birth.
I love teaching and have even trained adults in previous jobs because being patient and teaching through practice and interest rather than through theory is my forte.

Education

Bachelors in Sociology with a minor in Marketing in Concordia, Montreal
Bachelors in Translation and Business, ISIT, Paris
Masters in Intercultural Management & Communications, ISIT, Paris

Experience / Qualifications

- Four years substitute teaching in bilingual elementary school
- 5 years of tutoring at home
- Franco-British Chamber of Commerce certificate

Olivia
Language and Culture, the combination to learn our language/ IB program
Hallo, mijn naam is Olivia en ben volledig bevoegd in het lesgeven van de Franse taal. Ik heb een Master Degree en ben IB gecertificeerd. Bonjour, my name is Olivia and I have a Master in teaching the French language as well as the certification for the IB program (bilingual exam) for foreign high-school students. For the past 7 years I have taught at International Schools, given private tuition to students of different ages and today also teach French at Berlitz Language Institute. De laatste 7 jaar heb ik lesgegeven op Internationale Scholen, privé lessen en werk nu ook bij Berlitz Language Instituut. Ik heb een inspirerende en interactieve manier van lesgeven ontwikkelt die je snel niet alleen de Franse taal maar ook de cultuur laat proeven! After having lived for 16 years in Asia and taught all these different nationalities, I developed an inspiring and interactive method to teach French language linked with the French culture; food, people, art, fashion. I guess language is the first step but the "Etiquette" is what makes you more "Frenchy" or being able to do business in French and with the French! With me, you will learn French at your pace, according to your needs and your motivation; for leisure or business oriented. I have created lesson programs like "French for the Chef" and "French for business in textile industry" for example. I give lesson for adults and teenagers and I also prepare for the IB program (Language A and B).
