About James

I am an enthusiastic language learner and teacher, and have been since my undergraduate studies (2006-2010). After that, I spent a few years in Europe, mostly in Italy, supporting myself by teaching English. From 2014-2016 I studied at the University of Arizona, obtaining my Master's in Classical Philology (the study of Greek and Latin literature). I have extensive experience teaching languages at various levels and in a variety of settings, and I am excited to put the techniques I have mastered to use here in Minneapolis!

I also have a fairly good understanding of standardized tests: I was awarded the National Merit Scholarship for my performance in the PSAT/SAT, and I achieved a 99th percentile in the Verbal section of the GRE. I could also help with that.

I have been learning Italian and German for almost 8 years: I have lived in Germany and Austria for several months, and in Italy for almost two years. I am fluent in Italian and speak German at a high level. I would be most comfortable teaching German to students at a beginning or intermediate level.

My qualifications for Greek and Latin are more formal: they are the primary subjects of my BA and MA degrees.

Thank for reading my profile, and I hope to hear from you soon!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Greek

I took 2.5 years of Ancient Greek as an undergraduate, and 2 years of advanced, graduate level coursework as a graduate student. I also worked as a teaching assistant in an intermediate Greek course.
