Hello! My name is Ryan and I am a professional librarian who loves teaching and helping connect people with the information resources they need. I am also a language-lover! My native language is English and I am fully fluent in German and Brazilian Portuguese. I have been fluent in German for over 15 years. I have a deep appreciation for German language and culture and have lots of experience tutoring the language to other English speakers. I have deep insight into common problem areas and pitfalls and have developed effective ways of describing German's complex grammar structure that make sense to non-linguists.
I am also passionate about tutoring English as a second language and if your native language is German or Portuguese then we are a great match. I hope to hear from you soon!

I am a professional librarian who took many writing and language courses throughout both my undergraduate and graduate studies. Learning foreign languages has been a hobby of mine for going on two decades. I am deeply knowledgeable about linguistics, grammatical structure and terminology but I have also developed ways of teaching and describing grammatical rules in a way that makes sense to non-linguists and absolute beginners.

I am very enthusiastic about language learning and since I have studied and tutored both German and Portuguese for years, I understand all the common problem areas that learners encounter. I custom design each lesson for each student, taking into account the vocabulary that will be most useful to you.

I work full time as a librarian but I tutor languages on the side because I enjoy it so much. I am very laid back about lessons and will not penalize you if you miss a lesson or anything like that. I am excited about working with you and helping you reach your goals. I absolutely love it when a student of mine comes to a session with a story about how they've used something they learned with me. It's the reason I do this!
