About Me
italki teacher since Jul 21, 2022
Olá, Salve, Χαῖρε , Ciao, Hello! My name is Joel. I am a native Brazilian with a love of classical languages. Fun Fact: 80% of English words are borrowed from Latin (with over 150,000 words from Greek)! I graduated from the Federal University of Paraíba in 2020 with a degree in classical languages. In addition, I graduated from an intensive 8-month immersion course in Latin and Ancient Greek at the prestigious Academia Vivarium Novum in Rome. From my bio you may have recognized that I currently speak 5 languages: Portuguese, Latin, Ancient Greek, Italian, and English, and would like to learn more. I also enjoy chess, strategic games, journaling, and meditation.

Thank you for your help Joel! I felt comfortable trying to learn Latin with your assistance. I am also happy that you did not try to teach me too many grammatical rules right away, which would have probably led to some confusion. This is a great textbook to work with!

Joel is a great teacher and communicator. I recommend taking Latin from him!

Joel has a firm command of the subject matter. Though he prefers the classical pronunciation, he was willing to work with me and guide me according to the ecclesiastical pronunciation. He kindly, but insistently corrected my pronunciation, which is a good thing. He spoke clearly, in English and Latin, which is so important for a good lesson. This is especially true for online tutoring. I appreciate his patience and flexibility.
