I took 8 years of Spanish classes and lived in Ecuador where I used Spanish on a daily basis. My teaching philosophy is to help students engage in learning. I find that a personal connection to new information makes it more engaging and meaningful, and students remember it better too. It's also more fun. That being said, if learning is more readily achieved for your student through other methods, we will do whatever works best. I cater to results, because my ultimate goal is the student's success.
About Joshua B.

I am a tutor who earned a music teaching degree, substitute taught, and didn't become a school teacher. I held professional tech retail jobs and am supplementing my life with my passion - education. Whatever subject or instrument I teach, I celebrate students' successes; and I enjoy helping learners have new aha moments. The majority of my students take guitar, bass guitar, or Spanish lessons. I am an educator and help my students learn other skills and knowledge sets too. I went to Ohio State University for college, earned a BA in Music Education, and graduated Cum Laude. I also spent 4 years in the Ohio State University Marching Band. I'm excited to help you incorporate new skills into your life!

Our son first time playing bassoon. Base on my son experience, he find Joshua to be very nice, patients, and explains a lot of information. It help him understand about the instrument and the sound when he play. He do have a sense of humor which help my son to have fun and be more comfortable. He also teaches other instruments, too. Highly recommended to everyone!!!!

I believe every person can realize their personal potential and live fully-expressed. Our world is changing more rapidly than ever and our schools are incentivized to focus on testing, our students are not being taught how to adapt and think adaptively to the jobs that will exist when they graduate college. My mission is to help students construct a mental framework of tangible academic and life skills that help them confidently and creatively engage with our increasingly changing world.

I was responsible for achieving sales goals while providing the highest possible level of customer service. I prided myself in helping people understand their devices, not only showing customers the basics, but also helping them understand the system so they could help themselves with future questions.
