    1. A tutor to teach you the shortcuts to mastering a foreign language.

    A tutor doesn't have a "title" (unless you're talking about their actual job title). You are simply trying to describe yourself as a tutor.

    I have made corrections to both your sentences so that they're grammatical. However, I have to say that I don't like either of them. There are no shortcuts to mastering a foreign language. It takes hard work, time, patience and a good teacher. You could say something like "[I'm] a tutor who can really help you master a foreign language".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    The bottom line is that you can acquire a foreign language by speaking a lot with your mouth rather than thinking with your brain.
    I hate that. I hate everything about it lt, starting with The bottom line. I like much better the sentence that goes something like:

    You learn a language better by listening to it being spoken and by speaking it yourself rather than analyzing it.
    Not a professional teacher
