If you choose to study foreign language with me, what distinguishes my tutoring most is that you will use the language yourself. I spend almost no time talking about the topic - instead, I present one piece and then you practice using it, building your ability to use the language minute by minute, session by session.

My Ma is in teaching foreign language and I have several years of success teaching and tutoring around the country and around the world. Don't hesitate to contact me if you have particular goals or any special requests!

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 approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Arabic

My MA is in Teaching Arabic as a Foreign Language and I have given private lessons as well as taught Arabic at the University of Michigan. I am comfortable teaching MSA and Levantine dialect to high advanced levels and Egyptians through intermediate levels.

Hebrew

I completed three years of Hebrew at the University of Michigan and could read literature and handle a wide range of conversational topics by the end.

Additionally, I have studied and lived in Jerusalem and have had several friends I converse with in Hebrew, meaning I feel comfortable in both literary written Hebrew as well as street Hebrew.

Proofreading

I work as a professional translator and so an integral component of each job is the proofreading that comes before delivery to the client. I love tiny but important details like punctuation, formatting, consistency in style, etc.

Additionally, I was formerly the English Department Chair at the Chicago Extension School of the National Autonomous University of Mexico and my position there involved both teaching English as well as overseeing the department.
