About Joseph

I have a TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certificate and a bachelor's from the University of Oregon. I have taught at Capstone English Mastery Center (now closed) in Portland, and various school abroad in Hong Kong. I am familiar with cultures and accents from all over the world, including: China, Japan, South Korea, Thailand, Saudi Arabia, France, Germany, Brazil, Venezuela, and Mexico.

I am relaxed in my style of tutoring. It is important for you to experiment with English and not feel pressured to be correct. After our first meeting, I will make some suggestions about the next couple lessons. I will prepare materials that will help you reach your goal.

Let me know if you have any questions. I look forward to working with you.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I have completed a 100-hour TEFL certificate through the International TEFL and TESOL training.

Grammar

I have completed a 100-hour TEFL Certificate through International TEFL and TESOL Training. Additionally, I taught grammar while I was teaching English in Hong Kong.

Phonics

I taught English in Hong Kong for a year and a half. During my time there I taught phonics lessons over the summer courses. Phonics was also a regular part of the curriculum for my regular kindergarten classes.

Reading

Reading comprehension was a basic part of the lessons I taught in Hong Kong. Most lessons would start with a story, after which questions about the story would be asked. I helped students answer the questions by carefully guiding them through the reading and helping them find where the answer was.
