About Brice


Bio

I am a recent PhD graduate from UCLA, where I taught both as a teaching assistant and full instructor for six years. My degree is in Linguistics, the scientific study of language. I found that during my time in grad school, teaching classes was truly the most rewarding part of my responsibilities. I truly enjoy helping others reach their academic goals, while sharing my passion for learning.

I am a recent PhD graduate from UCLA, where I taught both as a teaching assistant and full instructor for six years. My degree is in Linguistics, the scientific study of language. I found that during my time in grad school, teaching classes was truly the most rewarding part of my responsibilities. I truly enjoy helping others reach their academic goals, while sharing my passion for learning.

I am a native English speaker, fluent in German, with experience with Mandarin as well. As a linguist, I have an intimate understanding of English not just from my experience as a native speaker, but also a formal grammatical system. Since I am also aware of the many ways human language works, I can help identify problems that speakers are likely to have based on their native language(s), and explain English concepts in terms that make sense from a non-native perspective. Additionally, my research focuses on speech sounds, so I am uniquely able to help people with pronunciation-related goals.

Speech

I am Linguistics PhD trained in how the human vocal tract produces speech sounds. At UCLA, I taught both General and Applied Phonetics, where I helped students to recognize and pronounce all sounds found across human languages, including those found in multiple varieties of English. I have an excellent ear for hearing what mistakes are made, and can give instant feedback as to how to change your pronunciation.

Master of his subject matter and committed to help his students advance

Brice helped me gain a deeper understanding of constraint tableaux (a key technique of the popular linguistic theory of Optimality Theory, especially as applied to phonology). We struggled to overcome the deficiencies of the Wyzant software, though, which makes it exceeding difficult for a student to share a screen or files and lost considerable time in overcoming this. Also the audio was difficult to make out. But the lesson was positive and valuable over all.

He is the best Ling tutor ever!!

I've been using Wyzant for more than a year now as a student, but Brice is the best of the best Linguistics tutor I've ever met. He is extremely knowledgeable in the subject and so good at teaching. I hated Linguistics, but now I LOVE learning linguistics thanks to him. 200% recommend!!
