My name is Tom. I am currently a student at Illinois Wesleyan University. I have been studying the Italian language and culture for almost 9 years now. I started on my own when I was in 7th grade. I bought an Italian dictionary and started learning words and phrases. I immediately fell in love with the language.
I chose my high school because my freshman year was the first year they offered Italian as a language course. I was very successful in my high school Italian classes and was inducted into the Italian Language Honor Society my senior year. At our graduation awards ceremony senior year, I was also given the Italian Award by my teacher. This award was given to the student who showed the greatest potential in the language and had at least a B average throughout their four years of study. I tutored other students from Sophomore through Senior year. I enjoyed helping other students learn the language I loved.
At Illinois Wesleyan University, I tested out of the first year of Italian and took Italian 201 during the second semester of my freshman year. My professor asked if I would tutor Italian beginning my sophomore year and I gladly accepted. For the next two years I tutored students from all of the Italian classes at the university. I took all of the Italian classes offered at the University.
I love tutoring students in the Italian language because it gives me a chance to help others understand the beauty of the language and it allows me to stay practiced in the language. My dream is to one day go to Italy and experience the language and culture firsthand. My name is Tom. I am currently a student at Illinois Wesleyan University.

For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students.
