Hi 🙋♂️ my name is Josh. I was born and raised in Germany & I have a passion for traveling. I used to live in Prince Edward Island, Canada. But currently I am living in Tamarindo, Costa Rica, to get to know the culture and to practice my Spanish.
I am enrolled in a psychology bachelors degree at the Fernuniversität in Haagen (long distance university in Haagen, Germany). My other hobbies/interests include exploring nature, the universe, science, psychology, chess, surfing, snowboarding & the ocean...
Me as a Teacher
Over the past couple of years I've been living/traveling in various English speaking countries, like New Zealand, England and Canada. During my stays and travels I've learned that another language is something that needs to be practiced while speaking- which is exactly what intend to do with my students.
I am patient and know how difficult it is to learn another language. I’d like to encourage everyone of my students to feel confident and to learn from their mistakes.
Throughout my school years I have gathered experience teaching English, German, math, and physics.
My lessons & teaching style
My methodology is to teach through conversation with a variety of different types of topics such as culture, space , sports & most importantly what you're interested in. Which will boost your existing vocabulary to the next level. It will also help your built up your confidence & prepare you for difficult conversations with niche specific vocabulary that will make you sound like a native speaker! I would gladly teach your recent slang as well!
There will be some reading and writing as well, but we will mostly communicate with each other to improve your conversational German. Depending on your depth of German knowledge (grammar, structure, vocabulary etc.),I'll adapt the class to your needs!

I would definitely recommend Josh! It's a real joy to converse with him and he makes you feel comfortable while you try to speak German. He is polite and open-minded. I've had several lessons so far during which we kept finding different topics to discuss, which has helped me to expand my vocabulary. In short, I'll keep booking lessons with Josh.

Es war meine erste Lektion mit Josh.
Er ist ein netter Kerl. Es hat mich gefallen, was er klar sagt.
Er hat mich nach meinem Leben gefragt und mit Formulierungen geholfen.
Dann wir haben mit Texten gearbeitet.
Ich habe viel Neues gelernt.
