Approved subjects are in bold.
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 approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
One of my majors in college was Religion.
I studied theology in Germany, where many feel the greatest theologians originated (Luther, etc.)
I study Biblical Greek (Koine), but am by no means an expert in it.
One must have some appreciation for the underlying Greek and Hebrew in order for one to be doing authentic Bible study.
All courses were in German.
I wrote my Bachelor's thesis for my religion degree on Karl Barth's Confessing Church (Bekennendekirche). This church alone took a stand against Hitler within the German-speaking world.
I have led Bible studies since high school, and was the Christian Activities Network head in college.
I have done English as a Second Language teaching in Europe, Asia and the US.
Job #1: Pronunciation
Reason: If we do not improve it first, all learning you do thereafter will be practicing, but practicing with incorrect pronunciation.
You will be impressed by how much more native your English pronunciation is after the third session. I guarantee it.
I use diagrams showing how you currently use your throat, mouth and tongue.
Next, I diagram for you how native English speakers use them.
Finally, I train you in how to use your throat, mouth and tongue like a native speaker.
After pronunciation we move on to using English in an idiomatic way. The focus is on your oral expression.
German is the foundation of English.
Anyone who understands some German can piece together how English came together.
It is a big advantage in dealing with Germans too. German speakers enjoy, as a group, the highest wage rates in the world. Speaking their language pays off.
I learned German as an adult, as well.
It requires different techniques from those of a school age kid. For instance, the relevance of each vocab/grammar item has to be declared ahead of time. Adults rarely want to learn things just for the academic value.
German is a really fun language, also, because I did not find anything really impossible mentally after learning German grammar.
Let me know what other considerations and motives you have for learning.
Lawyers have used me as a paralegal.
I can assist you in your writing needs.
To assist in writing and test prep does not require one have a license to practice law.
Would be practicing attorneys most need help on the following, in my experience...
1. conditional clauses,
2. the conjunctive voice,
3. simplified structure to avoid run on sentences.
US legal writing places a premium on prose transparency.
My assistance pertains to legal English and prose.
Matters specific to the Cal Bar Exam are more economically obtained from texts and test prep resources, of course.
Submit me a writing sample and I will reply with pointers. You can decide where to take it from there.
I scored in the top 1% on the SAT Math test and the tope 7% of the math section of the GMAT. I am not good at math. But I found a way to win on these tests.
