I am a French Language teacher and tutor with MA degree in French and 15+ years experience tutoring French to youth and adults with excellent results. I studied at the Sorbonne, and tutored for Societe Completude in Paris (I have taught Math, Latin, and Chemistry in French!), and individual beginner and advanced French lessons. In Seattle, I taught French with South Seattle College for two years. Additionally, I tutored successfully more than 170 students in the US, helping them achieve their goals, and have been tutor with Wyzant for over 2 years working with 82 students.
I currently teach French to adults and youth in Seattle giving individual lessons and working with The North Seattle French School. I am able to adjust my tutoring to meet different needs (conversation, grammar, reading, writing, etc. ) and to create worksheets to help college student prepare for exams, helping them raise their grades. I successfully prepare adult and youth students for DELF / DALF exams. Additionally, I teach Business French to professionals, and French to adults who plan to relocate in France, or are going to France for vacations.
I would be happy to help you learn French with understanding and success, and can provide you with excellent references on demand.
The best of the best
Great help to my son. First, Petra took the time to understand how my son learns, provided him with helpful materials, and has been a perfect support for his in school studies. Plus, she is fun and always smiling. Thank you Petra.Jane, 4 lessons with Petra
So fun and patient!
It was my first time learning french and Petra did a great job on our first lesson walking me through several french pronunciations and words. I am excited to learn more in the future!Maria, 2 lessons with Petra
Petra does such a good job of slowly building my vocabulary and grammar that I don't even realize how much I'm learning. During lessons with her I don't feel nervous trying my best to talk or pronounce words because I feel so confident with what she has taught me. I recommend her for any situation for which you are learning French!Micaela, 24 lessons with Petra
Petra tutored me for about two months on average 3 days a week. She is a patient, dedicated, experienced, and knowledgeable tutor. She sent me applicable hmwk (videos, etc.) after every session to supplement our hour sessions. I would highly and unreservedly recommend her.Kaitlyn, 19 lessons with Petra
Immediately Petra put me at ease and helped me work through some of my current issues in my French course. Her style is relaxed yet I feel like I learned a lot in a short time. As a bonus, she is a native speaker, which is invaluable in learning a language. One on one attention is really wonderful. Would absolutely recommend without hesitation.Molly, 9 lessons with Petra
Petra is amazing. Her knowledge of the French culture and her teaching style is just what my daughter and I need. She has tremendous levels of experience in tutoring which makes it easy for her to observe and quickly tap into her clients needs. She is very easy to work with and we are thrilled to have found her. We are looking forward to more lessons with Petra and strengthening our conversational skills as well as learning more about the social norms and culture before traveling to France in July.Tina, 7 lessons with Petra
Very good tutor!
Petra helped me a lot understanding the current level of french I was at and design an action plan to improve it and take it to the next level. Very patient and kind!Juan, 1 lesson with Petra
Great, kind teacher!
I had a great first lesson with Petra. She was super nice and helpful, even when I slipped up on my French. Petra figured out my general level of speaking, including grammar for the past and future tenses. I'm looking forward to more!Taylor, 22 lessons with Petra
Great first lesson
I really enjoyed my first lesson with Petra! She's so kind and patient, also very knowledgeable. Definitely the tutor that I'm looking for, and I'm so glad that I find her!Chen, 14 lessons with Petra
Petra, thank you for continuing to work with Valencia on her vocabulary, and story telling. We are making great progress towards the conversation French objective by the end of this school year. Merci!Darko, 37 lessons with Petra
