I use primarily the communicative method (I strive to teach 100% in English with some clarifications from time to time in a student's native language) to teach my classes, along with interactive materials that I find online and elsewhere. I am open to other forms of teaching as well!
I am a native from Columbus, Ohio, USA and I currently live in Chile where I obtained my Masters in Applied Linguistics. I have over four years experiencing teaching. I have taught university students, professional adults and children of all ages.
I had a great experience working with Joseph, I feel that my language abilities improved a lot. He was very professional, and willing to tailor our classes to my goals and interests. He is very knowledgeable and does a great job of breaking things down in an easy to understand way
I have worked with Joseph on multiple university courses and he is an outstanding teacher. He is creative in coming up with solutions as to how best to help his students learn in an online context and always looking into the latest tools and resources to improve his teaching. He is extremely dedicated to student learning, and will do all he can to help his students reach their goals!
Joseph is very knowledgeable and well-versed in a number of languages, Spanish in particular. He is a charismatic person and understands the needs of students. His flexible style of teaching is really helpful for gaining a thorough understanding of the language. I would absolutely recommend Joseph as a language tutor.
Mr. Larson is very knowledgeable and down to earth. He's helpful with questions and wants to see you succeed. He speaks several languages and understands how hard it is to learn a new language! He is flexible and a very nice teacher. I enjoy learning from him!
I’ve known Joseph for over 15 years. Joseph is intelligent, thoughtful, and thorough when introducing a new language to his students. He has a deep understanding of the language combined with knowledge of its cultural context. He is flexible and will meet you where you’re at with your skill level and goal setting.
