“Olivia is an excellent teacher. She helped me gain confidence in my ability to speak and listen in French through thoughtful lessons that were tailored to my work and interests. We had private lessons regularly in preparation for a healthcare interview and I felt throughout the whole process that Olivia had my best interests in mind when she prepared our lessons. It was clear she went above and beyond in her exercise preparation and even utilized cutting edge research articles to broaden my vocabulary while giving context to our discussions. Most importantly, I felt energized after each lesson, which is quite a feat given I met with her two to three times a week at 19:00h after a full day of work as a healthcare worker. Even my French-speaking partner commented on how much I had improved in only a short period of time! I would highly recommend Olivia to anybody looking to improve their French or gain skills speaking French in a particular field of study. Her pricing package is also very reasonable and was significantly more affordable than other private tutoring services or the Alliance Francaise. I hope to work with her again in the future. Thank you Olivia for everything!”
