I am a French native. I can help you to improve your French because I know how hard it is to learn a language. I learn Spanish too thanks to my Bachelor Degree in France and Spain.
I would like to introduce you to francophone cultures.

I can teach in a fun way if you want something cool or I can be professional if it is important to you. I work both as a teacher (fun way) and as a sales person (more professional)

About Allan I.

Hi, there! My name is Allan and I can't wait to meet you! I'm a French Native and I've been teaching private lessons since 2010 and have loved helping my students in French, Spanish, Science, and Soccer. I went to a French Univesity (Avignon) and earned a degree in English and Spanish with a concentration in International Business in 2012. I'm a sportive and an easy going person. When I teach I try to make my student speak, nothing is better than to speak to learn a language.
For soccer we practice exercise over and over in order to master a specific gesture.I play soccer since I was 6 and with some friends we created the first Parkour's Club in France in 2003 I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Had a wonderful first lesson with Allen! I am very much looking forward to learning more French. I really appreciated Allen's enthusiasm and willingness to work with me to find learning strategies that best fit with my learning style.

Allen is a wonderful teacher. He is fun and very patient and understanding. He also gives you the space to learn and grow and doesn't make you feel awkward when you pronoun something incorrectly but instead offer correction and encouragement.

This was my first Parkour lesson. We warmed up and then Allan taught me vaulting basics and showed me a sequence of vaults.

Allan did an excellent job: he was good at explaining the movements and was encouraging. I had a fun time and I'm looking forward to my next lesson.

Allan was a lovely surprise. My first lesson was stress-free and FUN! He was so kind, patient, and encouraging. He has inspired me to look at my language learning in a different, more positive way that will help me grow. Just one lesson with him and my confidence has increased substantially. After more than 30 years away from the language, I was so unsure of myself and my ability with French. However, with Allan, I feel as if I've hit the jackpot - gaining a tutor who not only understands what I'm going through but who will help me achieve my goals more enthusiastically.
