About Lauren

I thoroughly enjoy language and received my Bachelors degree in Linguistics. I have a good understanding of how language works and enjoy working with others to help them with their understanding. I especially enjoy phonetics and can help with any pronunciation problems.

I minored in Spanish, French, and Chinese, and recently returned from France, where I earned my TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certification. I have some experience teaching small classes, as I had to do some teaching in my TEFL course. In addition, I have mentored several international students at the University at Buffalo.

In addition to minoring in Chinese, French, and Spanish, I have spent several months in China, and have traveled numerous times to France and Spain, providing me with the opportunity to use the the language in a real life environment.

Certified TEFL teacher.

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 studied Chinese in college for three years. One summer, I studied abroad in Beijing, at Capital Normal University, where my classes were taught in Chinese ( I was studying Chinese there). I felt comfortable using the language to get around in China. I also took a Chinese linguistics course in college. I am comfortable teaching simplified Chinese characters rather than traditional, and although I have spent a while studying Chinese, I only feel comfortable tutoring beginner students, as I still have quite a bit to learn myself.
