This is how 8 referees rated Alan:
My experience, approachability, and natural talent for languages make me a fantastic French tutor. I speak French at a high level, regularly providing status reports to my business partners in Paris using the language exclusively. I have also lived in France for just under a year, allowing me to completely immerse myself in the local language and culture and share the fruits of that with my students.
I tutored French students in English when I lived in France and American students in French when I lived in the United States, so I know how to help students from all backgrounds expand their linguistic repertoires. I also ran an English tutoring business out of my home for nine months when I lived in Japan and taught classes for the town government.
Speaking and listening are the keys to learning French in my opinion. Reading and writing are important and I can help with them, but conversation practice with a partner quickens your brain and helps you develop a deeper understanding of the language.
