About Joshua

From studying many different languages from numerous schools, I can attest to the power of being multilingual. Learning new languages opens doors that many never would have known existed. Linguistics leads to opportunities.

I have lived in many different cities across the Southeastern United States and Europe, such as Orlando, Atlanta, Birmingham, Troy and Paris. Teaching and learning has always been my reason for being and I believe there is nothing more powerful than education.

I studied at l'Université de Paris IV - la Sorbonne where I became certified in the French language while becoming completely immersed in the culture that is linked with the heart of France.

Studying linguistics and the structure of foreign languages can be applied to the English language as well. It's impossible to properly learn a language without understanding the grammar of your mother tongue.

Spelling and grammar go hand-in-hand. One cannot be without the other. Essentially, spelling is a priority for precision of language.

Before truly becoming engulfed by languages, I was mesmerized by a language without words - music. Before high school, I learned to play piano, saxophone, oboe and percussion. I studied music theory and aural skills for some time alongside my language studies in school.

Education is power - and there is power in words. Being skilled in linguistics is a superpower. It's all about immersion.

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.

French

I have studied French for nearly a decade, in both professional and recreational settings. After living in Paris and studying at l'Université de Paris IV - la Sorbonne, all loose ends were tied together and my fluency greatly increased. In Paris, I became certified in the language and use my achievement in French to progress my knowledge in other Latin-based languages.
