I teach in a way that is as focused on the grammar as you want to be. I prefer conversational classes, but for many in traditional classes it is the grammar that they are not understanding.

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

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 lear

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!!!!

Language is a passion of mine! I’m fluent in both German and Swiss German having lived and studied in Zürich, Switzerland for two and a half years. I teach all levels! If you know some German and want to get better at it, have never spoken a word in your life but want to learn, or just want someone to practice your German with, I’m more than happy to help you out!

"I took lessons with Sabrina over several years in small group settings. She always made the meetings fun and addressed the group's individual needs. She was always prepared with great ideas. Sabrina gave me confidence to engage in conversation in Italy on my early trips and then helped me prepare for a 2-week course at a language school in Italy. I was able to get into one of the more advanced classes, thanks in large part to Sabrina's tutoring. I was sad to move away from Sabrina's location and the opportunity for classes but am happy to see the online option."
