How are you doing today? This is Barnes Beckwith. I saw your contact at the University of California, Berkeley, Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures under the Directory's portal. I seek a private beginner's language tutor for my Daughter. I would like to know if you have a STUDENT/TUTOR available for the job.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
