French Language for Business, learn to speak and act appropriately in business settings

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). I'm also experienced in teaching French to company professionals working in- or with French companies.

After having lived for 20 years in Asia and taught different nationalities, I've 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 French in being successful in business settings.

With me, you will learn French at your pace, according to your needs, your motivation and the request from your company.

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?

Super sympa, les enfants sont super contents.
Don't think twice, just book ! Olivia has been fantastic in helping my son for IB French oral prep, Paper 1 & 2. Her structured and engaging approach has made such a difference in his motivation to learn and put into practice knowledge and now he feels confident at moving from a borderline A-B to solid A standard. Given we are in Australia, she has been so flexible even doing 6am starts to suit our convenience.
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 ;-)

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 9 years I have taught at International Schools and given private tuition to students of different ages. My main topic is the preparation of the IB program for high-school students including IGCSE, AB initio, Language B and language A, Standard level or high level. The principal parts of the IB program are developing the skills of understanding a context and a topic, as well as being able to give an opinion; speaking and writing are important but if you don't know what you are talking about, no language would be helpful to you. When I teach I always make sure that we reflect on the designated subject and we look for appropriate words to express it....Thinking before talking is one of the golden rule of the IB program For the past 20 years, I've lived in Asia and taught different nationalities therefore I have developed an inspiring and interactive method to teach French language taking into account the personality of each student, not everyone learn at the same pace I hope to meet you soon

Voulez-vous parler la langue de Molière avec fluidité ? N'hésitez pas à me contacter !
Salut, avant tout je me présente. Je me nomme Majda, une jeune fille marocaine, assistante de conversation française à Barcelone, puis à Madrid. D'ailleurs, j'avais suivi mes études supérieures à l'Université Ibn Tofail (au Maroc), et après avoir eu en fin de cursus un diplôme de la licence fondamentale du département de langue et littérature françaises, option linguistique, j'ai pu commencer mon stage d'assistanat à l'étranger (en Espagne). En effet, j'enseigne mes cours de français aux étudiants qui ont une volonté de réussir et qui s'intéressent à apprendre petit à petit les bases de la langue, pour pouvoir par la suite les utiliser au cours d'une très vive conversation.

Private lessons of French, grammar and English for middle and high school students
Hello, I am a student who is heading for teaching competitions. I want to give Grammar, English and French lessons to middle school or high school students in difficulty, who need academic support. I am in Lyon, I can give face-to-face lessons in this city only. Outside of this city, I can also give private lessons at a distance, if the student doesn't mind. My lessons will be based on those of the student. I will follow his program closely so that he understands his course well and does not feel in difficulty when he is in class. These private lessons can be accompanied by homework help and a deepening of the subjects covered in class. I listen to the student and the family to understand the specific needs of each.

Vincent
French lessons given by a motivated and motivating teacher!
Teacher for more than seven years in Geneva, I am passionate about my work and, in general, by the French language. I can help you in language as in literature; together we will find the means for you to progress. My goal is to give meaning to knowledge and to show that we can study French while having fun! I also have a master's degree in modern French, general history and French didactics. I offer weekly monitoring through an online platform, so you can measure your progress and practice outside of lessons. I like to offer several means of learning, from the most basic (doing exercises, copying sentences) to the most modern (playing small games, watching videos ...). It all depends on the student and their expectations. No method is imposed; the important thing is that you feel good and that you can familiarize yourself with the tools adapted to your profile. It is quite possible for me to help with the writing / correction of work, to finish; I will not do them for you of course, but can provide you with the support and follow-up you need to make them happen. See you soon !

Italian and french lessons for Children and adults.
Hello everyone ! Researcher at the University of Nice and in the process of completing my doctorate in international relations, I offer French and Italian courses. The objective is naturally to reach the linguistic level sought by the pupil for professional reasons or simply for leisure. Through activities and work using audio, video or written supports, students will be able to develop both their written and oral comprehension skills. I can completely adapt my lessons according to the requests and preferences of the pupils, by orienting the lessons on subjects which interest them particularly without obviously ignoring the basics. Do not hesitate to contact me !

Justyna
French lessons with FUN and passion : everyday use and help with homework / university classes
I graduated from the University of Athens where I attended courses in pedagogics, psychology and linguistics. I worked at a language centre between 2009-2016 where I was a director of studies and taught mainly English as a foreign/second language. Since 2014, when I first started teaching French, I have taught children and adults on a variety of language proficiency levels and with a variety of needs (general knowledge/terminology/for specific purposes), both individually and in groups. I constantly seek progress, meaning that I study further through reading books/articles concerning didactics/methodology and learning difficulties (chiefly dyslexia), observing other teachers as well as attending seminars (on-line or face-to-face). I will help you learn the weird French spelling and pronunciation with fun. I assign homework and after I receive it, correct it thoroughly additionally providing a lot of remarks/examples if they are necessary. During my lessons I use : - Skype/Whatsapp/Messenger to connect with you, - Google Docs to keep notes, which you can check at any time and they are yours to keep, - sketch board me to make mind maps to show connections between ideas, etc. - books, PPP, word docs, diagrams, pics, etc. - pronunciation/spelling/grammar games, - authentic materials taken from websites. I adore my profession and desire each and every one of my students be satisfied with the lesson. That's why I make sure the atmosphere is stress-free and nice. I also want my lessons to be as effective and close to real life needs as possible. Therefore, I make sure they are well-prepared, although they can be altered at any point, should such an opportunity arise. I like explaining things in a variety of ways as well as make use of dictionaries, diagrams, etc. When it comes to students who want to obtain certificates, I am very demanding. What can I teach? - I would love to help you improve/develop all language skills (speaking/writing-listening/reading + grammar/vocabulary/pronunciation), - I would love to help you prepare for an exam DELF A1, A2, B1, B2 / DALF C1, C2, - I would love to help you with homework and assignments (literature, history) from school and university (but please contact me about that IN ADVANCE).

For motivated students who want to learn French with a smile ;-)
I like to use different methods to teach French to students. It can be through songs, drama, role play or videos. I also very often use situations close to the student's experience, such as describing places they have been or talking about what they have experienced. At the same time, I teach the grammar rules to the student. I now live in regions where French has been spoken for over 30 years. Because I have learned French myself (and I am still learning other languages), I can easily put myself in a student's shoes. I can teach in French, Dutch, English, German and Russian.

Who ? I am 49 years old and have been a French teacher for 27 years in French secondary education in Belgium. For three years now, I have decided to follow the entrepreneurial path by offering freelance courses. With hindsight today, I regret not having done so earlier as the exchange with new people, young and old, French-speaking or not, is particularly enriching. What? I offer French or FLE courses based on multiple sources and I renew them regularly because it is important to be in adequacy with the current society. Or ? I go to the learner's home where we decide to do the course online. When? I work at the Belgian-Luxembourg border and I go to Luxembourg 4 to 5 times a week, usually at the beginning or end of the afternoon. I am also available on weekends. Who?

Alejandro & Eléa
Private maths, physics and French lessons and homework help, Tutors 5 years of experience
We are two math and physics tutors and help with homework for all levels up to university. We give our private lessons online via zoom. We have decided to create a common profile in order to best meet the demands of our students and thus ensure the most adequate support according to their profile and expectations. Alejandro: I am a master's student in sustainable development. Before that I obtained my Bachelor in Mechanical Engineering at EPFL. I offer math / physics courses for students who need help to follow their courses as well as those in search of improvement. Elea: I graduated from the school of speech therapy (speech therapy) at La Sorbonne University in Paris in July. Before my training, I obtained my scientific baccalaureate with honors, and completed a year of preparation for speech therapy competitions. I thus have a scientific and literary background allowing me to support your child in all the subjects of his school curriculum. I would like to point out that I am offering private lessons here in a school setting and not speech therapy sessions which are part of the care. Nevertheless, my training allows me to demonstrate a pedagogy taking into account the profile of your child. Comprehensive and methodical, we personalize our lessons to be able to provide solid support to our students. Our courses allow you to acquire methods of reflection and resolution of exercises to better tackle these subjects. Our goal is to help our students gain confidence and skills in the targeted subjects, so they can face the exams with confidence. Are you not convinced of the effectiveness of online courses? We invite you to ask us for more information on the course of the distance learning courses, guaranteeing you a safe learning.

Andrey
Certified English, French, Russian tutor in Paris and ONLINE
My name is Andrey and I’m an English, French and Russian teacher living in Paris. I graduated in teaching French and English but I also studied legal translation and IT law. I’ve been teaching languages for almost 10 years now. I absolutely love learning languages and teaching languages. At the moment I work for a big company as a private French tutor for English speaking executives. I know how to quickly adjust to changes in teaching methods depending on your goals. Whether you’re looking to practice conversational French, improve your pronunciation, prepare for an exam or a job interview I’d be happy to help you. My extensive experience allows me to vary my teaching styles. The communicative approach is the cornerstone of my teaching style but I also like making accent on pronunciation, especially when it comes to teaching French. For any language, I tend to choose my material based on the student’s own personal or professional interests.
