My name is Joe. I have been a Spanish teacher at the Middle and High School levels for the past five years. I have also taught myself French and some Italian, and I am very knowledgeable in Geography as well.
I believe in teaching languages in the way we learned our own. That is, by associating words with objects, using the language in casual conversation, and using all aspects of the language, such as speaking, listening, reading, and writing.
I am a very patient and supportive teacher. However, I have high expectations for my students. I enjoy the challenge of motivating my students to perform above expectations. At the same time, I leave a great deal of the responsibility on the student to ensure their own success.
In conclusion, I very much enjoy teaching, and more importantly, seeing the joy of a student after acquiring new knowledge. I look forward to working with you :)
