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 the...

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!

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 H. from Carrollton, TX
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 P. from New York, NY
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.

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 K. from Seattle, WA
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 S. from Seattle, WA
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!

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 S. from Seattle, WA
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 Q. from Seattle, WA
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!
- Hedieh K. from Seattle, WA
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.
- Lara C. from Boston, MA
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 L. from Bellevue, WA
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.
- Angus M. from Seattle, WA
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!
- Tessa C. from Seattle, WA
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!
- Megan T. from Seattle, WA
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!
- Tacia B. from Edmonds, WA
Petra is an excellent French tutor. She took the time to get to know my son and provided him with customized study plan. In addition to lessons, she made herself available to email questions as well. With her help, I can see my son likes French more and more and speaks the language with greater confidence. Definitely a five star ranking from me. Thank you very much Petra!
- Teresa Y. from Redmond, WA
Passionate teacher and really enjoyed her lesson! Appreciate that I found Petra before my SAT French test and I believe I will do a lot better after learning from her. Thank you Petra!
- Rebecca C. from Seattle, WA
She is always very pleasant, helpful and fun. She accommodates our schedule as best she can and is very flexible. She cares about my daughter's progress and is just great to work with!
- Juliana W. from Seattle, WA
I can not recommend Petra enough. She's a great teacher. I was/am taking online French course. This is the worst way possible to learn an foreign language and I was struggling. Petra turned my whole semester around. I connected with her about half way through the semester. I used her services as if she were the instructor. She not only worked with me with my course textbook, she provided supplemental materials. When I took my final at the end of the semester, I got a 97% on my final exam. I couldn't believe it! This is directly related to my work with Petra. Merci beaucoup Petra!
