English

English composition (essay writing)

I have 10+ years experience teaching college-level English composition. Whether you’re a high school student preparing for college, an undergraduate preparing for graduate school, or you just need some extra help with an English course, I can be your secret to success. Let me help you improve your grades, your test performance, and your essay-writing skills.

English literature

I'm a published scholar with 10+ years experience teaching English literature at the university level. I’m well qualified to teach all periods, genres, and authors, and I’m a special expert in the older periods (Beowulf, Chaucer, and Shakespeare).

German

I studied German at U.C. Berkeley and the Universität Göttingen, earned my Ph.D. in English and German literature from Cornell University, and taught courses in German literature at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.

I tutor all aspects of German (reading, writing, and speaking), and I’ve had good results using Hueber’s Schritte International.

My approach to language teaching is easy-going and direct. Whatever your goals, I will make it my goal to help you meet them as quickly as possible.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
