Biography

Levin Arnsperger serves as the Assistant Director of the English as a Second Language (ESL) Program. In this role, he manages the ESL tutoring service and teaches special sections of ENG 101 and ENG 221 with ESL support. He collaborates with the Emory Writing Program, the Emory Writing Center, and the English Department. He is a member of the Southeastern Writing Center Association.

Dr. Arnsperger received his Ph.D. in English from Emory in 2013 and his M.A. in American Studies, Political Science, and Modern History from the Freie Universität Berlin in his native Germany in 2007. During the academic year of 2013-2014, he taught as a Visiting Assistant Professor at Kennesaw State University, with a joint appointment in English and American Studies. While pursuing his doctoral studies at Emory, he also worked for the International Student and Scholar Services, the Center for Community Partnerships, the Office of Sustainability Initiatives, and the Letters of Samuel Beckett project, thus acquiring valuable insights into various processes, policies, and offices at the university.

Aside from English and German – which he has taught at the local Goethe Center since 2012 – Dr Arnsperger speaks French, Italian, and Arabic, at different levels of proficiency. In his free time, Dr. Arnsperger enjoys participating in sports (soccer, tennis, triathlon) and spending time with his young family and his friends.
