About Brigitta

With over 20 years experience in education, I am passionate about helping students achieve academic success. My personal tutoring philosophy is learner-centered and my focus is on helping you meet your own academic goals. If you choose me as your tutor, you can expect me to be organized, prepared and willing to give you my undivided attention during our online tutoring sessions. While I am serious about helping you succeed, I also believe learning is enjoyable and I strive to make my tutoring sessions engaging. I aim to make learning so fun that you'll want to do it for the rest of your life! :)

My particular strengths are in coaching writing, critical reading and literary analysis, and language study (especially Chinese, French and English as Second Language). I also enjoy tutoring in history, philosophy, and other humanities and social science subjects. I have taught, tutored and advised students at all levels, from middle school to graduate school, and I enjoy working with people of diverse backgrounds.

I have a Ph.D. in East Asian Studies with a focus on traditional Chinese language and literature. I have studied modern Chinese language in Taiwan and Mainland China with the Inter-University Program for Chinese Language Studies. I have taught writing, literature and critical reading and analysis for over 10 years at the secondary and post-secondary levels. I also have a certificate in Teaching English as a Second Language and have taught English at a high school in Mainland China.

I would love the opportunity to talk with you about how I might help you achieve your academic goals. Please contact me if you have questions or would like to schedule a tutoring session.

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.

Chinese

I have a Ph.D. in East Asian Studies from Princeton University in East Asian Studies with an emphasis on traditional Chinese literature and language. I have also studied modern Chinese with the Inter-University Program for Chinese Language Studies in Taipei, Taiwan and in Beijing, China. I received a 7 (Intermediate B) on the HSK Chinese Proficiency Exam in 1999.

ESL/ESOL

I have taught 11th grade students enrolled in an international program at a Chinese high school in Beijing, China. I have also worked extensively with Chinese students enrolled in US universities where I taught Literature and Civilization courses.

Writing

I coach students at all levels on academic writing, including persuasive and expository essays, critical reviews, literary analysis papers and personal essays. I also coach students on the research process, including how to select and narrow a topic, how to develop a research plan, how to find and document sources, and how to write and edit the research essay.
