Hello, my name is Joshua K.! I am a certified TEFL teacher/tutor willing to help anyone with learning the English language, whether it's for assignments or improving their conversation skills, I'm ready to help!
I have plenty of experience teaching and tutoring! Before I got my TEFL certification, I volunteered as an English teacher in Peru. Because this was an after school program, all of the classes were pretty small, and I had multiple opportunities to tutor to teenagers and children when there were only one or two students in the class. Even after or before my class I tutored and taught to teenage students. Afterwards, I tutored three boys from Madagascar who knew very little English. I volunteered again, this time at Pleasant Valley United Methodist Church here in South Riding, VA, leading a small class of students who also knew very little English. I also tutor someone at the Gum Spring Library. Currently I'm in the process of expanding my tutoring experience, and WyzAnt could be a good way for me to connect with people who need an ESL tutor.
I like tutoring more than teaching because it's a very personalized experience! I'm comfortable expressing myself as a teacher, but I'm even more comfortable as a tutor because I get to work one-on-one with the student. It's a great way to progress in areas where they excel at or if they need improvement in another area, I will help them right away. I enjoy seeing progress in a student's ability to use English, and tutoring is very personalized so I will enjoy it almost just as much. Students who work with me will be working with someone who is very knowledgeable in teaching English, but also like to "teach outside the box", using various types of aids to help the student learn more comprehensibly.
My passion for ESL, creativity, attitude, and experience in one-on-one tutoring makes me an outstanding English teacher/tutor. I love teaching ESL and I'm passionate to help people learning English. I'm very creative as a teacher/tutor, using different types of lessons. I am a very outgoing and positive person when working one-on-one; I understand the difficulty learning a new language and the questions that may arise from so. I have tutored many different people from different backgrounds before, which shows my experience. For those who are learning the English language here in the Northern Virginia area, I am here to help!
If you are interested to have me as your tutor, feel free to contact me for any questions about scheduling lessons! I am usually available all days (even on the weekends) except Tuesday afternoons.

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.
