About Me
italki teacher since Feb 10, 2022
Hello! / 안녕하세요! / Wie geht's? / Oi, tudo bem? I am a friendly but professional language instructor and language course engineer from Switzerland. I lived many years in Brazil, the US, went to university in Switzerland, and concluded my master's degree in language education in S. Korea with the highest GPA 4.46/4.5. I was rated in the top 1% among German teachers on italki for 2022 and I take great pride in my professionalism and attention to detail. My lessons are carefully structured and organized, with a strong framework that ensures maximum understanding, retention, and success. Additionally, I understand how the brain learns language. 게다가 제가 한국어도 잘해서 걱정 하지 말고 공부를 편하게 할까요? ㅎㅎ

I never really thought that learning German could be this easy, and fun at the same time. I'm surprised at the amount of grammar I've learned in such a short period of time. I'm really grateful to have found a great teacher with a great method to support me while learning this complicated language. I look forward to continuing my German lessons with Josias!

I wish other language tutors had this kind of grammar teaching format that Josias has created. Every lesson builds on each other, with ample opportunities during the class to practice the new grammar while incorporating grammar from previous lessons. The amount of grammar covered in each lesson is significant but not overwhelming, so it helps solidify my knowledge instead of getting confused and not ever fully grasping the rule. As the lessons advance, the homework assignments have you create your own sentences using the grammar which allows me to further practice and reinforce my learnings. Incredibly effective way to learn, and I always look forward to each lesson. Thank you!!!

I've tried many teachers on italki and haven't found a teacher that can accomplish what Josias does so effectively. First and foremost, a class with Josias will leave you feeling fantastic; he is a wonderful person who makes language study a very joyful experience. He excels in fostering a happy and secure learning atmosphere. His courses have a strong framework that is well thought out and tailored to your own personal needs. It is clear that as a teacher, Josias has solid pedagogical knowledge and experience, which shines through in everything that he does. I wholeheartedly recommend him for beginner and intermediate students alike.
