About Wallis

Hello all, my name is Wallis. I was born in Paris, France and raised in Benin (West Africa) which used to be an ex french colony. French is my native language and I can speak up to four more African dialects as well as a little bit of Spanish. I picked up English when I got the opportunity to come to America in 2009. I received a full scholarship to play soccer and pursue my academics at Blair Academy which is a very well known Prep School in Blairstown NJ. I came in as a new sophomore, straight up from paris, without a lot of knowledge of English but i was able to pick it up after a few months because of the unbelievable friends and teachers who were around me.

My first job as a French Tutor was at Blair Academy in the fall of 2009. I supervised a couple of kids on a weekly basis, helped them with their homework and explained them French grammar. I was successful very quickly for some reason and I learned that i could be a good French tutor as my students were rating me very highly. That's the reason why I am so excited to get started here and help you guys out because french is a pretty difficult language but when you have a good teacher it can be so much easier to learn.

I gained additional teaching experience as a head soccer coach for the U9 “Club Des Nations Unis” team in Benin during the 2010 and 2011 summer as I had to attend meetings with the team’s officials in which I would give my inputs on various topics such as the club’s infrastructures and what we can do to make the organization better. I also provided some leadership and guidance to my players as I am myself a soccer player and I’ve been in their position before. Lastly, I organized team practices and also provided work out tips to players, which I learned from the coaches I’ve had in the past, as well as my own research. By working eight (8) hours per week for an entire summer, I helped to get the line started early and although we finished 5th out of ten (10) teams competing in that league the first year; the board was very pleased with my management skills and kept me at that position the following summer.
