About Joel

I am a recent college graduate with a degree in Communications (and an emphasis in Conflict Resolution). In the near future I'll be traveling to Japan to begin teaching English in the classroom. I've routinely been -that- guy who picks up on subjects a bit faster and goes back to help other people catch up. I understand that everyone learns a bit differently, and communicates differently as well, making me more adaptable than someone who has learned specific methods of teaching. Whether through example, storytelling, or rote practice, what I truly enjoy is seeing that moment where a student grasps how to solve a problem they've been struggling with. I hope very much to be working with you in the near future.

The first lesson with a student involves sample problems in a particular subject that I request them to answer and then a discussion about why they answered what they did, be it right or wrong. From that, I aim to assess how much a student knows about the subject and how they are solving it. From there I can correct any evident mistakes, work on areas where they feel weak, or work on refining their thought processes for particular types of problems. Then I tend to round things out by helping them through problems of a similar type if needed and then letting the student work through it on their own.

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.
