French; learn to speak and write through engaging exercises

Bonjour, my name is Olivia and I have a Master in teaching 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.

After having lived for 18 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.

Lessons are done with engaging modern exercises that interest kids and young adults to let them learn fast in a fun way that motivates them.
Preparation for high-school students for the IB program (Language A and B, Standard level and high level).
With me, your children will learn French at their pace, according to your needs as parents.

Extra information

An intake call with parents will be beneficial to understand the level of speaking and writing and understanding. Based on this and in alignment with the needs of you and the school, I will develop my lesson materials

About Me

Hello, I am Olivia and spend my time in between Amsterdam, France and Asia. Besides the travel (not at this moment), I learn everyday about the rich culture and rich differences that exist between for example the Dutch (married to one) and the French.

I teach French and IB level to International School students and to business professionals wanting to sharpen their French skills. Teaching is a great way to connect and learn about another culture. Learning a vocabulary only gets you so far, add cultural understanding and you will unlock the key to making your French skills parfait!

I really enjoy finding creative ways to let the student experience the richness of the French language and practically link it to daily life situations. My interaction with high school-, university students and business professionals give me the opportunity to constantly improve my lesson content and methods. Interesting content method for millennials, relevant practical use for professionals. I use various online video (sharing) tools to have engaging lessons. Shall we try?

Very good first lesson. Olivia was able to assess and plan the lessons exactly as my son needed.
Great first lesson! Merci!
I have been now learning French with Olivia for almost 2 months. It's an unique experience not only to study a beautiful language, but also exchange knowledge about cultures, cuisine, traditions, travels and many other things. Olivia is truly passionate about teaching French and has a very open and pleasant personality. She is always eager to help with any questions and stimulate people to start speaking French. I always enjoy my lessons with her! She is also available on Skype, so now worries if you travel a lot ;-)
I took French conversation lessons with Olivia in Amsterdam. Olivia is an enthusiastic teacher who puts you at ease, and has a great knowledge of the French language and culture. Unfortunately she is moving back to Asia, so I’ll have to miss our lessons.

French private lessons by university graduate in Letters
French private lessons are for students wishing: - consolidate their bases in grammar, spelling - improve their language skills (allophone students) - improve their speaking skills (conversation classes) -profect the written expression - ECR exams - prepare for the written examinations at the end of the studies (maturity, certificate of completion) - help with the writing of works of maturity (or other works of end of studies), of dissertation - work on argumentative texts - acquire a method to analyze literary texts - fill gaps - improve their spelling - prepare for oral exams (maturity, compulsory leaving certificates) - learn how to perform bibliographic research For help with writing: The objective is above all to acquire effective tools. The pupil will thus be able to learn to structure his ideas, to argue in a coherent (and convincing) way and to enrich his vocabulary. For the corrections of end of studies work: so that the meeting with the student is at the most profitable, I ask him to send me his writings before the meeting. Apart from my presence with the student, any course involves a preparation time before and after the lesson, including the work that I correct. My goal is to design an individualized course, so I take the time to write detailed comments on corrected work or tips to ensure maximum success for everyone. For example, an editorial correction can easily be the subject of a detailed commentary of 4 typewritten pages. For adults (FLE): In order to optimally prepare the first ones, I take the initiative to inform myself in advance of their objectives / expectations. Whether to practice speaking in everyday life, the professional world or to practice oral presentations, I prepare either PPT or technical sheets in advance that I send by mail ( after booking on the website). The other alternative is to make a PV of the course that I send (or that I print). Giving importance to keeping a written record on the one hand to better memorize the topics covered, on the other hand to better assimilate the spelling. Of a general nature, a concrete situation that responds to the learner's needs is the starting point. From this situation, I address the essential grammatical points.
