Get to know our Tutors:

Rosa Basevich

Rosa Basevich is in her senior year with a Fall 2019 graduation date.  Her goal is to become a Business Analyst.  As a member of the Geography club she loves the great outdoors and going hiking. In fact her photo here was taken after hiking up Wartburg Castle in Germany.

Why she enjoys tutoring and her advice to German learners: "Most students have a strong grasp of the language but at times need a little practice and clarification on the rules. I enjoy working through the exercises and seeing students apply what they've learned more confidently. Learning German takes a lot of preparation but it get easier. So do not get discouraged and practice whenever you can. I even watch my Netflix shows in German with German subtitles."


Aruna Singh

Aruna Singh is in her senior year. Her ultimate career goal is to own her own private practice in the field of psychology. Aruna is a foodie and is always up for trying new foods from different cultures.

Why she enjoys tutoring and her advice to German learners: "Tutoring is a fulfilling experience because it allows me to help students at their pace until they master the ideas and concepts that are troubling them. We are students together trying to master this language, so just keep going! It will take time and a lot of practice, so don't give up! Also don't compare yourself to others, and before you know it you'll be able to see the significant improvements you've made."


George Eskandar

George Eskandar is in his senior year and set to graduate in Fall 2019.  Post-graduation George hopes to land a part-time position as a Cardiothoracic Surgery Physician Assistant.  He also hopes to put his German studies to good use, teaching German to fellow language lovers.   

Why he enjoys tutoring and his advice for German learners: "Helping a fellow student is a pleasure as I know exactly what they're going through. Also, it helps me go over my studies and appreciate the professors who brought me to where I am now. German may seem hard, but it's so much fun. Just keep practicing, speaking and reading. Practice those R's and CH's and watch videos in German. It's a beautiful language, you won't regret it!
