About Brian

I recently graduated from UC Berkeley with a double major in Philosophy and German. UC Berkeley is commonly ranked among the top 10 universities in the world. During Community College I did Spanish 1-4, getting an A in both Spanish 3 and 4. I also took an Ancient Greek intensive course at UC Berkeley and got an A-. I have years of tutoring experience in many subjects such as English, German, Spanish, Ancient Greek, as well as essay writing.

I've studied multiple languages for several years and have done very well in all the language classes I've taken. I also provide my students with learning materials that explain complicated grammatical structures in simple graphs. Another thing I provide my students are good songs from the target language with lyric pages that have English translations on one side.

I love teaching languages and have a lot of fun doing it. I've studied Spanish, German, Ancient Greek, in school and Latin and Biblical Hebrew on my own, so I know how to master a language from scratch. My focus in teaching a language is to have the student actually speak it and build on the parts of the language they can already speak. So I begin by giving the student a rudimentary conversational command of the language and then we build on that foundation through talking, listening, music, writing, and reading. I am also very good with pronunciation and so I know how to get my students sounding like native speakers.

Great Teacher

Brian is such a great teacher. I learn so much in so little of time. He continually gets me out of my comfort zone and teaches a whole new language. It's amazing what this guy can do. His approach, I truly believe, is the reason of my success. I find myself not just memorizing vocabulary, but actually speaking the language and thinking about syntax, sentence structure, grammar.
