About Joel

Dear Student, Parent, or Other:

My teaching philosophy is student-centered. Each student has unique needs and goals. Every student's learning style is individual. Everything is based on the particular student.

My diverse and substantial teaching and education background in writing, ESL, business, design, and other subjects enables me to meet the needs and learning styles of many different students. My TESL certification comes from Portland State University's Linguistics Department. The certification demands one year of full time classes, including teaching practicum, tutoring, and observational studies. My writing masters included coursework in teaching writing. I can provide a letter of recommendation from my professor who taught this class. I have lived on the mainland West Coast, East Asia, Southern Europe, and the Middle East, and now Hawaii since 2011 more or less, so I have a wide perspective on various cultures and languages.


Sincerely,


Joel
