About Joel


Bio

To all concerned,

My name is Joel. It is my ambition to be the best in a field that I feel so passionately about: language studies.

I think that my studies as a philosophy student make me a more diligent thinker; classes such as formal logic helped me to compendiously represent my ideas to others and, when questioning others and evaluating data, frame my inquiries in a focused, purpose-driven manner.

To all concerned,

My name is Joel. It is my ambition to be the best in a field that I feel so passionately about: language studies.

I think that my studies as a philosophy student make me a more diligent thinker; classes such as formal logic helped me to compendiously represent my ideas to others and, when questioning others and evaluating data, frame my inquiries in a focused, purpose-driven manner. I hope you will find this attribute to be helpful as I help you with your lessons.

Most importantly and obviously, I hope my Spanish skills will be of service. Having studied Spanish as a major, I’ve developed a highly functional grasp of the Spanish language. That capacity was all the more developed by having spent a semester at Pablo de Olavide University in Seville, Spain – a region known for having an accent difficult to understand. As a former employee of Seasonal Nursery in Elma, I worked with migrant workers from Mexico, aging from late-teens to over age 50. I was asked to help relay work instructions on behalf of my foreman to those who lacked knowledge of English. In so doing I was able to expand my fluency and rapport with the Latin people in a way not afforded by classroom studies. As a former tour translator, I explained the finer, lesser known tidbits about Niagara Falls to Spanish travelers (and tried my best to be entertaining at the same time!). And now, I'm ready to turn my attention to you - the learner - and help you gain greater fluency in this exciting language!

Excited to work with you and hoping to hear from you.
