Academically, my best language by far, and one I could definitely tutor a beginning or intermediate student in is German. Three years of academic study with an instructor native to German, who used immersion to help us with fluency and "thinking" in that language. It is still my most fluent language.

I also have academic training in Latin. 3 years of study. It would take some review, but I could certainly help tutor a student struggling to learn or master that language. It is certainly a fantastic one to study in terms of understanding much of English, with so many cognates, understanding or working out new word meanings when they possess a recognizable Latin root, or prefix, etc.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

My teaching philosophy is to help students learn how to think, not what to think. To teach and train tools that foster discovery of information and facts, in order to be resourceful in solving problems and finding answers. To incorporate different senses that best help take in and retain information and skills.
