Jacob J.

Private tutor in Portland, OR

Education

Columbia University in the City of New York - BA, Comparative Literature , University of California-Berkeley - MA, German

Experience

I am a resident of Portland, Oregon. I graduated from Columbia University with a Bachelor of Arts in Comparative Literature, and subsequently from the University of California at Berkeley with a Master of Arts in German. I gained teaching experience while I was in graduate school, where I was trained in teaching foreign languages. I feel that my life experiences have contributed to my skills as a tutor. My goal in tutoring is not simply to enable my students to get better grades, but to help them acquire new skills and insights so that they will be in control of their own educations.Subjects I am able to tutor include English (reading, writing, literature, grammar, and mechanics), and all levels of German. I can also help students prepare for standardized exams like the SSAT, SAT, and TOEFL, and help them prepare their college admissions essays. I am available for summer tutoring and to work with students to improve their study skills and organization.In my spare time, I enjoy travel, urban hiking, nature, writing, foreign languages and cultures, and literature.
