About Brian


Bio

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 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.

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.

I have been studying German for 10 years and have been tutoring it for 8 years. I have taken German 1-4 in college and various other classes about German and in German for my bachelors degree. I also have lots of German learning materials like verb charts and flashcards to help my students learn the language. So far I have tutored around 20 people in the German language.

I've been teaching German and Spanish for 8 years, and 4 years ago I started learning Ancient Greek intensely. When I attended UC Berkeley to do a double major in Philosophy and German, I voluntarily took an 8 unit intensive course on Ancient Greek that covered both the first and second levels of the language and received an A-. I also have many different learning materials for the language including my own textbook that I wrote by myself using actual sentences by Ancient Greek authors like Plato, Aristotle, Aristophanes, and the New Testament portion of the Bible. I have had three Ancient Greek students so far and still have one of them today. The other two students hired be for a few months where as my current Ancient Greek student, Kristopher Gage MD of Sanford Health, has been working with me for over a year.

Great German Review

Brian truly cares if his students grasp the material and will take as much time as needed to make sure his students grasp the material. Couldn't ask for a better German tutor.

Nathan, 19 lessons with Brian

...he's that guy in class that's REALLY into it

He always has a plan, and repeats bits from the last couple of lessons. I don't have too much time to study between sessions, but I can tell I am making progress! :)

Gina, 54 lessons with Brian

Incredible tutor

Brian is geared up and ready to go every lesson. He is patient and breaks down words from the history of them to the pronounciation. Highly recommend anyone to Brian who is wanting to excel in a new language!

Very Knowledgeable and structured

Only one lesson under the belt for German I like structure and break down of the language as to how sentences are formed and important grammatical notes Brian teaches.
