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.

I mistook when our lesson started and was late to the lesson and I really appreciated that Joel took the time to still be willing to teach. I'm a bit forgetful and so it meant a lot to have such a patient teacher.

Excellent lessons! Joel's lessons help to learn and understand Latin. The lessons are given in Latin and - when necessary - in very good, easy to understand English. We come from Germany and my 12-year-old son had difficulties with Latin at school, especially with translation and grammar. But with Joel's lessons he has started to understand and, most surprisingly, even like Latin. Thank you, Joel, for your great lessons!

Joel was very patient with me, particularly given my atrocious accent and the fact I struggle with syllables.

Very good lessons! With Joel's lessons, our son (12 years old, 6th grade, Latin as 2nd foreign language) just got his very first "1" in a Latin exam (which is the best grade in Germany)! We are so happy and he is so proud! Many, many thanks Joel! Sehr guter Unterricht! Mit Joel's Unterricht hat unser Sohn (12 Jahre, 6. Klasse, Latein als 2. Fremdsprache) gerade seine allererste "1" in einer Lateinklausur (in Deutschland die beste Note) bekommen! Wir haben uns riesig gefreut und er ist so stolz! Vielen, vielen Dank Joel!

Really great Latin lessons for our son (12 years old, 1st grade Latin at school). Our son had a lot of difficulties with Latin (vocabulary, grammar and translation) at school. With Joel's lessons, our son started to understand, improved his grades significantly and he even started to like Latin at school! It is also not a problem at all that the lessons are not in German, as the lessons are given in Latin and Joel explains in English when needed in a way that our son can easily understand. Many, many thanks Joel for your great lessons!
