About Joseph

I have taught many different people conversational and business English. I have taught people who have just arrived from other countries. I also lived in Brazil for 6 months teaching English to professionals in a variety of different industries. I have a flexible schedule and we can work on a specific area of need if requested. Most of my experience is in teaching English as a second language to adults but I have also instructed teenagers. I am proficient in developing teaching materials and communicative activities for integrated skills lessons of a varying degree of difficulty. My I have made use of multimedia educational materials to help understanding of material.

I understand it can be uncomfortable for people to learn a new language and some people are shy or afraid to make a mistake, however, I have the practical knowledge of newcomers getting settled and adapting to new surroundings. Conducting initial and on-going needs assessments to keep students informed of relevant topics and themes. I address the intrinsic motivation by creating real life communicative situations and engaging students in pair work and group discussions. I always maintain a relaxed, informal and positive atmosphere to ensure successful learning process. I use various tools and methods to give the student real world conversation experience.
