French

I have a BA in French from Indiana University-Bloomington (2011) and am working on my PhD in Romance Linguistics Progress from UC Berkeley (2011-Present).

Latin

I have 10 years of learning experience with Latin, having taken courses in High School, College, and Graduate School. I am currently working on my PhD in Romance Linguistics from UC Berkeley (2011-Present).


Spanish

I hold a BA in Spanish from Indiana University-Bloomington (2011), and am currently working on my PhD in Romance Linguistics at UC Berkeley (2011-Present). I began learning Spanish fifteen years ago, and took courses at the Instituto Cultural de Oaxaca in 2006. I have since learned a variety of other languages, including Portuguese, French, and Italian.

I hold a BA in Portuguese from Indiana University-Bloomington (2011) and am in the process of completing my PhD in Romance Linguistics at UC Berkeley (2011-Present). I have been studying and speaking Portuguese for eight years, and am most at home with the Brazilian dialect. I have also completed multiple language pedagogy courses during my time as French instructor at UC Berkeley.


Italian

I am in the progress of completing my PhD in Romance Linguistics at UC Berkeley (2011-Present), and I have been certified at a CEFR level of B2 at International House, Palermo (July 2012). I also have tutored UC Berkeley students in first-year Italian, to great success.
