I would be thrilled to have the opportunity to help you improve your language skills, be it in preparation for a test (AP, SAT II), for a class, or for everyday usage.
I graduated from UCLA with a major in German summa cum laude and with Departmental Highest Honors and was also recognized as the Most Outstanding Graduating Senior for the Department of Germanic Languages. My Italian studies began while I was in high school and continued at UCLA, where I received A+'s in my upper-division literature and composition courses. I have studied Spanish for six years and received a 5 on the AP test.
I am patient, friendly, and detail-oriented. I adapt to the needs of the individual student and arrange lesson plans that address short-term needs as well as long-term goals. As a non-native speaker, I am aware of the unique challenges of each language and am able to explain grammatical concepts in terms that make sense to fellow native English speakers.
