I am a French Language teacher and tutor with MA degree in French and fifteen years experience tutoring French to youth and adults with excellent results. I 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.

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.

Great tutor

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, 20 lessons with Petra

Expressive, Knowledgeable, and Creative Teacher -

Petra is a fantastic tutor as she is able to match my pace for practicing French and deconstruct difficult language concepts in a more comprehensible and fun way. I am learning so much more quickly in a one-on-one session with Petra than I ever have in a traditional classroom environment. If you are hoping to refine your conversational French, understand more difficult language structure, or start from scratch, Petra can help you achieve and exceed your goals!

Piper, 10 lessons with Petra

Awesome French tutor!

Petra tutuored my daughter, who was starting high school in September and felt somewhat uncomfortable with French, during the summer. She is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic and successfully helped my daughter transition to French 3 as a freshman. My daughter now feels she has a solid basis in French to build on and flourish- all thanks to Petra!

Wonderful native-speaking French tutor!

Petra is a wonderful French tutor! She makes our sessions fun and interesting, helping me to improve my French conversation skills. After just a few sessions, my French already feels like it's improving. She gives great feedback, explains rules of grammar in a way that makes sense, and gives homework assignments that help me improve skills where I have some weakness. Besides all that, Petra is a native French speaker, so I've had the opportunity to learn a lot about proper pronunciation and use of idioms. I highly recommend Petra for anyone who wants to improve their French.

Patient and knowledgable

Very good experience with Petra. She is kind and patient. She knows my strength and weakness and try to find the best way to teach me. She is also very accommodating. I am glad to have her as my French tutor.

Sophia, 11 lessons with Petra

If you want to know French, you want to know Petra.

Petra has been invaluable to me. She is patient and kind. As she is completely fluent in French, she is flexible in what level you may want to learn at, whether it's your first day, or you want to brush up on your pre-existing knowledge. Along with her wealth of resources and personal encouragement, I am confident anyone can learn French with her, too.

Outstanding tutor!

Petra is an amazing tutor. She skillfully worked with my daughter to quickly figure out what her strengths and challenges were. After the very productive session, Petra provided my daughter with a lesson plan for the week. I highly recommend Petra!

Perfect French Teacher!

Petra is a fantastic teacher! She is super enthusiastic and has a bundle of interesting resources for learning. She makes me even more motivated about learning French. I meet with her on a weekly basis and I have been learning a lot, especially in conversing. She is quick to identify places where I need help and is very encouraging. I recently passed the DELF A2 exam with 88%. I am so grateful to Petra for working hard with me on preparing for the exam, especially given our timeline was short. I am extremely happy to have been successful in the exam and I owe it to Petra’s great teaching skills. She is a super focused and driven and at the same time a kind and fun teacher. Petra is a great find and I love improving my French with her!

Helped Me Pass DELF A2!

I hadn't set foot in a French classroom since high school when I started studying with Petra for the A2 exam. I just got my exam results today and passed with 94%! I can't recommend Petra enough as a tutor. She's provided an incredible amount of help, time, and resources to assist me in preparing for the exam and it paid off in spades. I've seriously improved my listening, speaking, and writing skills with her guidance and continuing to challenge me to step outside of my comfort zone in French. Thank you, Petra!
