Hi! I'm Josh. I'm a TEFL certified professional English teacher, the host of the YouTube channel "English Hacks", and the author of three books on English learning and one book on general language learning (available on Amazon). I have over 5 years of experience and have given thousands of one-on-one lessons!
I specialize in American pronunciation training and accent reduction, as well as language mentoring (learning how to learn a language in the way that works best for you) but I also have a lot of different activities to improve all of your English language skills!
I love languages! I speak Spanish and I have also studied Japanese, German, some Portuguese, and a little Esperanto, so I know how difficult it can be to learn a new language.
I am really good at connecting things, and this helps me to teach you better. I definitely understand how scary speaking can be and I am very patient, so you can relax and feel comfortable with me. My philosophy is to be a guide and mentor who is very focused on your needs and interests and who can give you the tools and information that you need in order to succeed as an English speaker. Because of this, I don't have a specific, rigid type of lesson that is too focused on grammar like traditional classes. Instead, I work with you to create the type of lessons and learning plan that best suit you.

Besides the fact that Josh is very friendly, active and communicative, he is just different than any other teachers. He has his own unique process of working on student's accent reduction, listening and understanding English native speakers. With him you will get familiar with the rhythm and music of English speech that will help you to become fluent. But if you decide to up your grammar, I would highly recommend to get his course along with his books. It is worth it to have him as your teacher. I wish everybody lots of luck and fun in studying.Show More
