About Grant

I have had a passion for foreign languages ever since I started studying Spanish in high school. In the summer after my sophomore year, I participated in the StarTalk language program at Howard Community College where I first began learning Chinese. After one summer, I fell in love with the language and knew that I wanted to major in it at college. So I did just that. Through the next 5-6 years I learned more Chinese and greatly improved my proficiency thanks to my wonderful teachers. However, I am proud to say that I have been able to teach myself so much about the language that I did not learn in class, and it is to that that I attribute much of my success.

During my senior year at St. Mary's, I tutored two young elementary school kids (5 y/o and 9 y/o) who thoroughly enjoyed my introduction lessons to the language. After I graduated, I attended Middlebury College to participate in their Summer Language Schools, where I studied at level 4 (the highest) Chinese. While at Middlebury, I found it very easy to help out the less experienced students, even when we could not speak English (only Chinese).

Considering I only graduated less than a year ago, my qualifications do not seem to be much. But as many of my classmates and peers could attest to, I just get it. It may seem too confident, but I truly feel that I understand this language better than others who attempt to study it, and as such, I am willing to share the tricks and techniques I have learned to help those who also want to study such a complex but at the same time fun and, believe it or not, simple, language.

I am currently job-hunting so please feel free to contact me if you want to schedule an appointment. Thank you so much for your interest! - Grant

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.

Chinese

I have been studying Chinese for over 6 years now, and have excelled ever since I started. While studying abroad in Shanghai China in Fall 2013, I took and passed HSK level 5. After attending Middlebury College's Summer Language Schools this past summer, my ACTFL (American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages) listed my Oral Proficiency as Advanced High, and Reading Proficiency as Advanced High.
