My Language Learning Philosophy:

Every language learner has unique needs. Some people will have more difficulty pronouncing certain sounds than others, some will struggle with grammar, and some will lack certain areas of vocabulary. That’s why I don’t use a set program but adapt my lessons to you! Students should focus on being easily understood, so I help students practice pronunciation and, I coach them through fluency exercises. All the while, I like to keep a light tone so that we’re having fun and enjoying learning a language so that students stay motivated.

What Students are saying

“Joey has been tutoring me in English as a second language since June 2019. We developed learning plans for improving my communication skills and both academic and creative writing. He is enthusiastic and patient. He understands my needs and gives constructive feedback. He helped me pronounce words that I had difficulty with using a range of methods such as voice recording and repetition. He also brings in his expertise in journalism to help me write clearly and concisely. With his help, I am now more confident in speaking up and understanding people in English.”
