Parlez-vous français? Sprechen Sie Deutsch? Oui and ja. My name is Jennifer. I have been studying French for more than 12 years and German for 7. I have my Bachelor's in French and German and a Master's in French and German translation. After graduating college, I won a Fulbright scholarship and taught English for a year in Germany to German middle and high school students. I am passionate about languages. I believe that not only is speaking a language important, but also learning the speakers' culture and history as well as what makes the language tick, i.e. the grammar, and doing all of this in a fun way.
Each student is different. I understand full well that not everyone is a linguaphile like I am and that not everyone's brain is wired to pick up languages easily, my college roommate for example. I have tutored friends and classmates over the years and can certainly help you.
I loved Latin in high school. I haven't kept up with it much, but if your student is taking first-year Latin and is using the textbook Ecce Romani, I can definitely help. I also tutor history and government. I was a history minor in college as well.
