About Joseph

I have always loved understanding languages, and I have been immersed in foreign languages, both classical and modern, since I was 13. My entire education was shaped by 8 years of classical language study (Latin and Greek), and my language horizons further expanded by 7 years spent living in Europe, during which time I learned Spanish, German, and Italian.

I have spent 5 years as a teacher, and have a passion for unlocking the mysteries of these languages, and welcome the challenge of making them accessible to my students. In particular, I enjoy the challenge of finding a way of explaining a language or subject to each student in a way that makes sense to them.

I have spent 6 years teaching Latin at a college, high school and middle school level, and have taught using a wide variety of textbooks and methods. I am particularly good at using my own knowledge of the language to create customized drills or exercises to help a student master those particular areas that they still struggle with. I acquired my knowledge of German, Spanish and Italian by a mixture of classroom instruction and total immersion, and my experience living in Europe is a valuable asset when teaching those languages, all of which I have taught in a classroom setting.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve your learning goals!

Our First Lesson — Joseph started with the basics: language style, greetings, pronunciation, and very basic verbs. He seems perfect for teaching us enough Italian to make us confident for our upcoming trip. ...
