About Thornton

Hello All!

My name is Thornton. I am a senior at Mercer University with a double major in Political Science and German. I have recently returned from a year spent in Germany brushing up on my language skills so I'm ready to help those of you who have taken on the wonderful task of learning German. Additionally, in high school I was a nationally ranked speech and debater so I am also happy to help those of you who need a little more support with public speaking or critical reading skills.

I have not always been a talented reader, speaker, or spoken German well; these were all skills that I cultivated with a lot of hard work and perseverance. To this day I still remember the intense nerves I used to get when speaking in public or conversing in German with my instructors so I can understand your frustrations and difficulties.

While I am not professionally trained as a teacher, I have quite a bit of experience with tutoring. I tutored as an English tutor at a local Title 1 school in Macon, Georgia, at a local exemplary school in Bamberg, Germany, and I have also privately tutored with lots of people.

Currently I am here in Washington, D.C. completing an internship and work there Monday through Friday until 4PM each day. I would prefer clients in the city or near D.C. since I do not have a car and will be either walking or taking the metro to you.

Let me know if I can help you!

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.

Public Speaking

In high school I studied Speech and Debate, took language and logic classes, and excelled in classroom discussions. In addition to language and logic classes, as a high school student I qualified to take a public speaking class at the local university where I passed with an A+. Finally, my qualifications for public speaking include two years of national speech and debate state and national titles in two leagues, STOA and NCFCA where I competed in debate (LD and Policy) and five speech categories -- qualifying to Nationals in all five speeches and debate my final year.
