About Andrew

I specialize in Arabic and German, but I also have a small background in historical linguistics (e.g. phonetic/phonemic differentiation across dialects and languages). My passion is learning new languages, and I enjoy nothing more than passing along what I've learned to other eager students.

Topics I have found to be crucial in picking up a new language are actively using a relevant vocabulary, especially by personalizing new words in ways meaningful to the student; immersion in the language's environment in homework and classroom activities to the highest degree possible; and comfort in knowing that guessing is not only acceptable, but useful in learning how to interact in a foreign language.

I have been involved in foreign language camps for children since I was in elementary school, and have experience both instructing children in a small classroom environment (12-25 students) and in relaying helpful tools for acquiring language skills.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Arabic

I am an Arabic major at The University of Texas at Austin, and have completed 3 years of sequential Arabic courses. I have written numerous reports and essays, as well as performed skits and audio blogs in Arabic. Last year I assisted in an Arabic-taught first-level language course as Instructional Support at UT.

German

I have been studying the German language for over 12 years, and actively pursued its studies in high school and in college. Pursuant to my B.A. in German that will be complete this December, I have studied many facets of German history and society, from the middle ages to the present, and have taken multiple classes on historical linguistic perspectives of German. I have a lot of experience with German grammar and writing style, as well as being proficient in spoken language.
