Hello,

I am currently a senior at Cal State San Marcos and am pursuing a Bachelor's Degree in Spanish with plans to be a Spanish teacher after graduating and receiving a teaching credential. In my Spanish classes, I have an A- average. The combination of my grades and my completion of multiple college upper division classes makes me qualified to teach nearly any level of Spanish including college level courses as well as many other subjects.

Besides my relevant educational experience, I am an experienced tutor who has tutored multiple subjects including up to third year Spanish, Middle School Math, and Language Arts. I also have the unique experience of tutoring a foster child. Although Spanish is my major, I tutor a wide variety of different subjects. Overall I have about 150 hours of tutoring experience with a high retention rate among my students.

I enjoy tutoring because making a difference in the lives of students and helping them improve is highly fulfilling. I make tutoring simple. My two main goals as a tutor are to have a high rate of satisfaction among my students and to make all concepts as clear and straightforward as possible.

I hold myself to extremely high standards, and tutoring is no exception. I am well liked by my students, and I am extremely confident that you will be satisfied working with me and that you will have a great experience. I look forward to meeting with you!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Track & Field

I am an RRCA Certified Running Coach and a veteran of 18 marathons and 20 half marathons. From my certification, I have scientific knowledge on topics such as how the body adapts to different types of stress and how to deal with injuries. I have a personal best time of 3:23:19 in the marathon and 1:29:14 in the half marathon. I have recently helped two people train for a marathon.

Joel’s Resources

Tutors have the ability to create educational resources and share them with the WyzAnt community. Here are some of the resources created by Joel. View all of Joel’s resources

You don't need to spend hours memorizing new words or making simple concepts more complicated than they need to be to learn Spanish. The best way to learn Spanish is to focus on the similarities between English and Spanish. The fact is that whether or not you realize it, you already know some Spanish.   One book that I highly recommend is Madrigal's Magic Key To Spanish. This book... read more
