Tutor in France (EN)
The Oliver Twist company was created in 1992. We are members of the quality contract l’Office, UFAAP and IAPA which insure you the quality of our services.
We have more than 20 years of experience concerning the welcoming organization of young foreign people in France. We gained a strong reputation thanks to our strict selection of families and young tutors, considering everyone’s needs.
The « tutoring » program is a cultural exchange where you share a family daily life. We placed tutors in each part of France, but most of all in the South-West of France (Bordeaux, Nantes, Angers, Toulouse…).
The family will provide you full board. Being a tutor is the opportunity to learn French and discover a country. In exchange of 15 hours a week, you will have to teach the family members your language during your stay.
You can stay from 1 to 3 months in France. You will also have the possibility to have French classes during your free time. It is a cheaper way to travel abroad and learn or improve a foreign language.
