About Caleb

Hallo! My name is Caleb; I'm currently a senior at UNC-Chapel Hill where I double-major in Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures with both Russian and German concentrations. I've been studying Russian since I started at UNC when I was a freshman, as well as participating in a summer language program at Indiana University Bloomington. German on the other hand has been a part of my life since sophomore year of High School, where I really uncovered my desire to learn languages. Since then I have been taking as many steps as possible to immerse myself in the language, just this last summer I worked in Berlin at a German Press Office translating and doing various media research. I truly enjoy what I study and I would be greatly honored to be able to share my passion with anyone trying to learn either of these languages.

I've been unofficially tutoring since I was a sophomore in HS, where I started at an after school help center for kids who don't get much help at home. I really enjoy passing along what I know about a subject to someone who may be lacking in their knowledge, as well as seeing them excel after some hard effort. Not only this, but tutoring also offers the opportunity to get to know and motivate new and exciting people on a personal level. Reaching personal and external goals in a difficult subject is something with which I'm very familiar; and I count it as an amazing opportunity to be able to support people in reaching these goals.

My qualifications to tutor these languages include a wealth of first and second hand experience in German, some examples: foreign work and study experience in Germany, 6+ years of total study, 3+ years of university study. Russian: 3+ years of university study, language immersion programs, funded governmental study for Foreign Langauge Area Studies (FLAS)

I promise to do everything within my power and skill set to make sure your goals in German or Russian are reached, as well as offering free moral support in response to all language-related frustrations :)

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.

Russian

I have 3+ years experience in studying the Russian Language at the university level as well as the same amount of years experience with study of Linguistics. The classes that I have taken at UNC have ranged from Russian Grammar, Conversation, Composition, Literature, and Linguistic Structure. Knowing the 'ins and outs' of the language has really helped me to understand how it works and how/why native speakers say what they say. I was recommended by my fifth year Russian professor to tutor at the UNC Learning Center for Russian, however time conflicts make that a little difficult at the moment.
