Introduction: My name is Patrick, and I was born and educated in Paris, France. My native language is French, and English is my second language. I am proficient in Italian as well as Spanish, and I have been teaching French since 2002. My teaching motto: You can achieve anything you set your mind to. Patience is a virtue. My primary goal is to provide the highest-quality language to my learners in a fun, nurturing, and culturally-rich environment. My students' ages vary. I have taught beginners (as young as age 8) as well as adults who work with corporations sending managers, directors, and senior executives that travel to France. I have successfully taught adults in business to comfortably speak conversational French. I also work with business executives as an interpreter. Levels taught: beginner, intermediate, advanced, and corporate. I design my lessons to varying students' goals. I can help with accent correction, pronunciation, and fluidity. I also teach grammar, and vocabulary, and assist with readings, writings, translations, and interpretations. I find this approach works for varying situations, and I utilize differentiated instruction. Everyone learns at a different pace. My goal is to challenge you and make you comfortable as I present the material in a way that you'll find it interesting as you grasp the language. I hope you will understand French, and feel comfortable using it in the classroom, in casual business interaction, or in general conversation if you are planning a pleasure or business trip to France. I enjoy French literature and I incorporate it into my lessons, I find that students can relate to different things such as art, history, music, cinema, food, and wine or fashion. There is so much to discover! I only teach what I know the best: the French language and the French culture. I have lived in the United States for several years. I can help you to compare both countries and establish linguistic and cultural bridges between them. My hourly rate is $30.

My french lessons with Allo Paris are the highlight of my week - and have been so pleased with them that have increased the frequency! The knowledge and insights provided by Allo Paris on the language are invaluable - and have provided the opportunity to learn much more quickly than other programs I have tried. I am so happy to have found Allo Paris for my french lessons - and I would highly recommend Allo Paris to others who are looking for french lessons from an excellent teacher at exceptional value! :)

After 2 lessons with Patrick, I am so amazed how much I have already learned. He is so encouraging, positive, and wants you to succeed. It is very easy to connect with him personally and he makes the lessons very interesting! I am looking forward to continuing learning french, and cannot think of a better teacher than Patrick. If you want to learn a language, he is amazing!!

I just had my first lesson with Patrick and it was amazing. Patrick was very encouraging and worked at my own pace. After the first lesson I feel like I would be speaking French in a very short while. Merci Patrick !!

It’s been over a month since I started French lessons with Patrick and it’s been fun! He is a natural teacher and very skilled as a native French speaker. My lesson plan is tailored for my schedule, goals, and learning style. Patrick is very patient, and I can see him taking on students of all levels. His course materials are current and I don’t feel like I’m learning old-world French. There is a lot of interaction during sessions so I’m not just sitting and listening. Patrick often records and sends me audio clips of him reading from the book. This is extremely helpful when I’m studying on my own. Hearing a real French speaker pronounce a word or read a sentence that’s giving me trouble is better than using Google Translate! I’m more motivated than ever to gain fluency thanks to the efforts of Patrick. I highly recommend him!
