I speak fluent German, and am highly proficient in Russian and Hungarian. My native language is English.

I hold a bachelor's degree in linguistics from Harvard, where I studied theoretical syntax. This gives me a unique insight into grammar and how to learn it.

I am currently a student at UIC in the evenings, and I'm mostly free during the day.

Test Preparation:


I am currently about half-way through my Masters in Accounting degree at UIC. I have received A grades in Financial Accounting I and II and Management Accounting. I'm currently enrolled in Advanced Financial Accounting, International Accounting, and Tax Accounting.


I have been teaching ESL for several years. I was a volunteer teaching assistant at the International Institute of Boston for several years, and I tutored a family of Russians in Berlin for a year. I have an extensive knowledge of English grammar and how it compares to the grammars of other languages. I also have taken courses in phonetics and can help learners with their pronunciation.


I have a degree in linguistics with a minor in German. The study of linguistics gave me a deep understanding of grammar and how to explain it, a knowledge that native speakers of German lack. I lived in Germany for a total of eighteen months, and I was routinely mistaken for a native speaker by Germans during this time.

I also have experience as a self-taught language learner. I studied Hungarian on my own so that I could take a class taught in Hungarian, and I eventually reached fluency. I firmly believe that anyone can do what I did; all you need is a strong will and the right methods.


I have been an ACT tutor for a review company, so I am acquainted with many test-taking strategies. I scored a 1600 on the GRE in 2010.


I am a fluent speaker of Hungarian and have a deep knowledge of the grammar and sounds of the language. I took advanced Hungarian courses at Humboldt University in Berlin, Germany. I have developed a method for self-study of Hungarian which emphasizes vocabulary building and communication.


I took 4 semesters of Russian at Harvard University. Subsequently, I traveled to Russia and immersed myself in the language for a period of several weeks. My degree is in linguistics, where I learned information about Russian grammar beyond what many native speakers know. I also have done research in Russian-German bilingualism, and I have Russian friends with whom I communicate in Russian.

Fantastic German Tutor! If you want to learn German and spend time with a great guy, contact Dustin. This has been money very well spent. I have been working with Dustin H. for five months and I have nothing but praise for the man. I just passed a very important and difficult German language exam (part of my Ph.D. Theology program) and I credit him and his tutoring. He always had a strong, but never overwhelming, lesson ...
