italki teacher since Jan 8, 2022
My name is Joshua, an American living in Germany, where I currently teach English as a foreign language. Prior to teaching English in Germany, I taught English literature, composition, and creative writing in the United States. I am a published author of novels, short stories, and poetry and hold a master's degree in Creative Writing. I also have a website called The Ways to Wit, where I present humorous investigations on the English language.
Me as a Teacher
I am a dedicated, professional teacher with wealth of experience in a wide variety of English forums. And, although I am indeed relaxed and humorous, I am also structured and prepared.
My lessons & teaching style
My lessons adapt to the style of learning that the student desires or needs. Lessons can be more structured and focused on particular language goals, or they can be flexible conversational lessons about any topic whatsoever. My teaching style is relaxed and fun, but also informative and structured. I am new to Germany, so my German is not perfect, but I can certainly help with translations.

I can really recommend Joshua as a teacher, especially if you would like to improve your storytelling skills, improve your humor and just have an outsider's view on your writing. I will without a doubt get in touch with him again for more classes in the future.

Joshua customized his lesson plans to my preferences, helped me select the right material to get started and modeled correct pronunciation for me. Thank you!
