Hello! I'm Josh and I'm a TEFL certified native British English speaker from Cambridge in the United Kingdom. I've been working as an English teacher for more than 6 years, and I'm passionate about language learning and teaching. Over the years, I've studied German and Spanish, which has given me an insight into what it's like to learn a foreign language. Also, throughout my teaching career, I've had the privilege of meeting many people from around the world. This experience has allowed me to learn about different cultures, helping me to become a more considerate and open-minded person. Personally, I believe that having this attitude is one of my greatest strengths as a teacher.
What am I like as a teacher?
I'm a disciplined individual with a strong attention to detail. My belief is that everyone has the potential to improve, so I aim to help my students reach their goals by being both encouraging and supportive. Whatever your reason(s) for learning English, my goal is to provide you with the ideal environment for improving your language skills. Also, I will do my best to be adaptable by adjusting my teaching style and the focus of our lessons to reflect your needs. Please feel free to let me know how we can make our lessons as effective and productive as possible for you!
What's the style of my lessons?
We'll use a variety of different materials to ensure that you have a well balanced and engaging English learning experience. To help you build confidence and improve your proficiency, we'll use resources such as news articles, stories, other texts and videos. Regarding my teaching style, my priority is to make sure that you feel relaxed by being encouraging and supportive. Furthermore, I'll focus on helping you to correct your mistakes and speak English like a native speaker, which will improve the quality of your English communication. Rest assured that you have no need to be afraid of making mistakes because this will help you to improve your English more quickly. Finally, if you know how you learn best and want to discuss that with me, I can take your specific learning preferences into account when teaching you, which I know will make our lessons more enjoyable. All you have to do is let me know!

Lessons with Joshua are the best way for me to practice communication skills. During the lessons, he often shows me how to speak in a more English way: he reformulates my phrases and sentences, and make notes. Besides that, it is very easy to find things to talk about with Joshua. He demonstrates true engagement in the conversation and it is always interesting to know about his opinion. He is very polite, supportive, always in a good mood and positive.
