University of Wyoming (German)
Ever since taking German in my first year of high school, it has been my dream to work as a linguist; whether I became an interpreter, a translator, or even a high school language instructor did not matter to me, as long as I had the ability to work using the foreign languages I had studied over the years as a means of furthering my professional career. My passion for foreign languages has extended well beyond high school, persevered through my college career, and is still very much alive today as I continue to hone my abilities in German, Japanese, and in Modern Standard Arabic (MSA).
As someone with an unrivaled enthusiasm for foreign language acquisition, I am also well aware of the difficulties learning a second or even a third language can pose to a non-native level speaker. With this notion in mind, I approach tutoring from a unique perspective, in that I've already overcome these hurdles as a student myself and am therefore now able to show other, more nascent learners effective studying techniques that are tried and true, while simultaneously fostering long-term learning that is critical to maintaining fluency in any language. I have also tutored for approximately 2 years as an employee of the University of Wyoming's Academic Services, where I primarily worked with first year German, Japanese and Arabic students in order to guarantee the success, or at the very least, significant improvement in each of their respective courses.
Prior to my graduation from the University of Wyoming, I took a wide range of courses dealing with linguistics, wherein I was able to dramatically broaden my expertise in the foreign languages I studied and further intensify my love of learning. In one German-English translation course, I translated approximately 40 documents between German and English (including scientific journals, works of literature, ads, etc.). Furthermore, I simultaneously completed upper level Japanese and Arabic college courses at the top of each class for two consecutive years, culminating in my placement on the University of Wyoming's President's list and Provost's list as acknowledgment of my exceptional academic performance in this difficult subject matter.
A large portion of my success in linguistics as an academic pursuit is founded upon my extensive background as a grammarian, in that I possess strong declarative knowledge of English's various grammatical structures. I not only regularly apply this invaluable information to my own acquisition of foreign languages, but I also use this understanding of grammar to explain difficult concepts to my tutees. Overall, I expect that you'll find my experience as a tutor, my aptitude for foreign languages, and my broad, yet thorough education from the University of Wyoming to be verification of my ability to work toward the edification of any student who is seeking help through WyzAnt.
While I do have a 24 hour-cancellation policy with my tutoring sessions, I am very flexible with the times I am able to tutor and am able to tailor-fit my schedule to any student's individual needs.
I encourage you to contact me if you need assistance in your studies pertaining to the German, Arabic, and Japanese languages, or simply in the English language in general. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

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.
