About Gina

My interest in tutoring stems from a natural ability for and strong dedication to modern languages, specifically in Spanish, German and Japanese. I am a native Spanish speaker and a near-native speaker of German and I am primarily motivated by a drive to help others achieve their goals in learning foreign languages. Whether it is a simple essay that needs to be written, to a more complex series of grammar exercises, or a desire to strive for fluency, my belief is that, with practice and guidance from the right tutor, anyone can reach success in their language-learning.

I am currently a University student working towards my Bachelor's in German Studies. Not only have I taken several university-level courses in German, but I have a strong working knowledge of the language and culture firsthand, as I have lived as an exchange student for one year in a small village, approximately two hours north of Berlin. I attended a German high school, where the language of instruction was German.

My Spanish skills, both oral and written, are native. I am from a Hispanic background and my experience with the language also includes university-level courses in Business Spanish. I can assist in virtually any level, from beginning Spanish grammar to more complex literary terms.

My experience with Japanese includes beginning university courses up to Japanese II. I can tutor in Hiragana, Katakana and basic Kanji, including familiarization with stroke order, as well as basic grammar. I am also familiar with the more cultural aspects of Japan and that is also something I can help develop a clearer understanding of.

My philosophy in language-learning is to work hard, have fun, and make mistakes- it's the one of the best way to learn.

I do appreciate any feedback that can be given to me during the lessons. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

German

I spent a year abroad in a village near Schwerin, Germany, as an exchange student in 2008 where I was enrolled as a student at the equivalent of a German high school, where German was the main language of instruction. I have taken several German language courses at the University of South Florida. My ability to speak the language is near-native and I am able to tutor anywhere from basic to more advanced vocabulary as well as grammar. I can also help to develop conversational abilities.

Japanese

I have always held a particularly strong interest in Japanese, and have taken Japanese courses, primarily at the University level. I have a strong grasp of basic Hiragana, Katakana, and can teach the significance of basic Kanji, as well as simple grammar. I am able to tutor in important aspects of Japanese culture, which are strongly embedded in the language itself. I have first-hand experience in traveling and visiting the country and am familiar with common customs and traditions.

Spanish

Spanish is my native tongue, along with English and I have been taught to read, write and speak it effectively throughout my entire childhood. To further solidify my Spanish abilities, I have taken Business Spanish courses at a local University. I am exposed to and speak the language first-hand on a daily basis.
