Parlez-vous français? Sprechen Sie Deutsch? Oui and ja. My name is Jennifer. I have been studying French for more than 13 years and German for 8. 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 also tutor history and government. I was a history minor in college as well.

I loved Latin in high school, but I haven't kept up with it much. I will only tutor Latin if the student is using the textbook Ecce Romani and is in his/her first year.

The majority of my students have been in high school or college.

I do not tutor students below 8th grade as I have very little experience teaching language to that age group.

Tutoring is a side-job for me. I do it because I love working one-on-one with students. During the week, I am generally not available until the evenings. Depending on where you're located, the earliest I can normally meet would be at 5:30pm.
