Liaoning Normal University (Master's)
I am here for anyone who would like to improve or learn from the scratch Mandarin Chinese, Polish, Latin or German. I majored in Classics at UIUC where I obtained my first MA in 2001. I taught elementary and intermediate Latin to UIUC undergrad classics majors for 2 years. I have no formal education in German in the US, but the language was spoken by my grandparents and I passed Zertifukat Deutsch als Fremdsprache test in Goethe Institut in Poland, where I come from. Besides, I had to use it through all my college years for research (in Classics you won't get anywhere without German), and later also for communication with a few colleagues at UIUC. And while in China I used German on multiple occasions to communicate with German friends and classmates. If you have any problems with German grammar and vocabulary or idioms, I'm definitely your guy. I can also correct your pronunciation. For those of you who'd love to learn Chinese, I have good news. The language is not as difficult as it seems. I obtained an MA in Chinese as a Foreign Language Education in China, and I lived there practically since 2005 till last year. I am fluent, have a good, standard accent (the Chinese often mistake me for a Chinese national when they just hear my voice), can write and read. Imagine, my MA thesis was written entirely in Chinese and I passed the oral defense also in Chinese. In addition, I also managed to publish 2 articles in Chinese on China. Drawing from my rich experience as a Chinese learner, I can ensure that no matter what your age or background, we will find an efficient way to get you on your feet with Chinese and enjoy it. As for Polish, that is my native language. Of course, that automatically does not have to guarantee that I am a good teacher, but believe me, my translation experience and ESL experience as well as my academic background can vouch for my teaching skills.

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.
I lived and studied Chinese for 8 years in China and obtained MA in Chinese as a Foreign Language Education. My MA thesis was distinguished as the outstanding thesis in my graduation year of 2012. My pronunciation is very standard, sometimes even better than that of a native speaker. I can easily deal with literary Chinese, Chinese essay writing and Chinese poetry.
I am a native speaker of Polish. I tutored Polish for one semester during my time at UIUC. Polish education is very rigorous. For HS graduates requirements are high. I graduated from HS with honors obtaining the highest possible score on the Polish test (language and literature). And my first three years of college were done in Poland. I understand the structure of my native language and the exact difficulties English speakers may need to overcome in the acquisition process.
