About Joshua

What gives me energy is helping others succeed in whatever skills they want to develop! Whether you are learning English or need help writing a paper, I can offer you a no-pressure environment where you direct your learning journey. I'll be there as a partner to the success you accomplish! Throughout my career, I have served on library staff, providing academic assistance to college students--I have helped many students over the years with a variety of scholarly papers, projects, and presentations. However, some of my fondest memories teaching are the six months I spent teaching in Brazil as a private English teacher. I hold a Master of Library and Information Science and a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature and History. I also have a certification in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL).

Feel free to look at my profile and see if I am a good fit for you! I look forward to hearing from 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.

American History

As a holder of a bachelors in Literature and History, I have contributed to two publications in American History, helped and assisted History majors in their projects and research. Moreover, I held a research position in the university library that provided deep exposure to all relevant subject areas.

ESL/ESOL

I am TESOL certified and have experience teaching abroad. While abroad, I used the American English File in all levels and taught for the CAE and the TOEFL test.

Grammar

I've tutored university students in Advanced Grammar; supplemented the Advanced Grammar textbook by providing more examples and easier-to-understand instruction for identifying all parts of speech, participles, verbals, phrases and clauses. Provided students with deeper context of curriculum through realia and real-life scenarios; prepared students for four major grammar tests and comprehensive final exam.

Literature

I hold a BA in English Literature and History from North Greenville University.

Proofreading

While in college, I was an Advanced-Grammar Tutor. I assisted college-level students with their scholarly works and projects. In addition, I have published for the Dictionary of Literary Biography and an Appalachian history site.

TOEFL

I am TESOL certified and while abroad in Brazil taught a group of TOEFL exam takers in all the sections of the TOEFL exam including Reading, Writing, Speaking, and Listening.

World History

A component of my undergraduate degree in Interdisciplinary Studies was World History.

Writing

As an Advanced Grammar Tutor and an librarian assistant for more than three years, I was able to provide technical and stylistic advice to college-aged students. I am also a published author for the Dictionary of Literary Biography and Appalachian History Magazine. Writing and proofreading are my strengths, and I can help you make the best argument and presentation for your project.
