English

I was born and raised in California, and as such I am a native speaker of the English language!

I graduated from UCLA with a degree in Linguistics, and as such I see language from a very different point of view. I have much experience in dealing with other languages and how they work, as well, and this facilitates the learning of those I teach along with the actual teaching. With this background, I can help you learn English in a much more understandable way and, of course, in its entirety: reading, writing and speaking.

If it's grammar that you need specific assistance with, for example, then not a problem! I will look into how your language works, namely its syntactic properties, and when we meet I will be able to relate to you how the syntax of your native language relates to the syntax of English, so that you may better understand the differences and from there master the syntax, or grammar, of English.

I can also greatly improve your pronunciation of the English language due to my linguistic background. I have studied phonetics and phonology, and I would be more than happy to help you in terms of your accent should you wish to improve it (I personally think accents are cool, however). But if you are interested in improving your accent, it is something that I could help in! One way of doing so is by helping you to position your mouth and tongue in ways that mimic the ways that native speakers of English position their own - it's amazing the difference that a slight adjustment of the tongue can make!

If you are interested (or alternatively if I contact you myself) then I would be more than happy to discuss my qualifications further. I do have experience in helping others learn English. For one example, I taught at the UCLA Dashew Center (International Center) where I led my own class with students that ranged from professors to graduate and undergraduate students.

I am a native speaker of the English language and I would love to help you improve your own skill with the language. It's a very useful and fascinating language to learn and I welcome any opportunities! Please don't hesitate to contact.

Study Skills

I am qualified to tutor in this specific subject because I am a graduate of UCLA who always completed every assignment of his on time and was prepared for every test. I graduated at the top of my class at a prestigious school, and it was because I knew how to study effectively while working jobs and leading a balanced life. My major of Linguistics was not an easy one, either, especially that UCLA has one of the best programs where that field is concerned.

I have also held previous jobs where I was hired precisely because I was successful in school. I served as an Orientation Leader to freshmen entering their first year at school, and in that role I guided and mentored them through a two-day orientation process. I also worked as a Peer Educator at the Learning Center of my school, where I met one-on-one with students and helped them with time-management, study skills, how to cope with stress, and generally gave them advice on how to tackle college better.

Ultimately, I know how to study effectively, and I know how to get yourself to study in the first place.

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.
