Hello! / 안녕하세요! / Oi, tudo bem? / Wie geht's?
I am a Swiss who grew up in Brazil, lived in the US as well as in Switzerland, and is currently pursuing a master's degree in language education in S. Korea. Currently 4.5/4.5 GPA in all semesters so far (3).
I have tutored many students in the past and have developed many efficient techniques when it comes to both learning and teaching a foreign language. I want you to profit from all of my teaching and life experiences by guiding you on your language journey.
KR: 저 한국어 잘해서 걱정 하지 말고 편하게 공부를 합시다! ㅎㅎ
PT: Sou um suíço que cresceu no Brasil, viveu nos EUA e na Suíça, e atualmente está cursando mestrado em ensino de idiomas na Coréia.
Me as a Teacher
GER: Ich bin ein Schweizer, der in Brasilien aufgewachsen ist, sowohl in den USA als auch in der Schweiz gelebt hat und derzeit in Korea ein Masterstudium in Sprachunterricht absolviert.
By practicing common sense and respecting my students, I strive to create a good atmosphere in every class, and because of that, you can feel at ease even when making mistakes, so that you can focus on sharing your thoughts in another language. I have been a language student for a long time, and I know exactly how it feels.
Actually, I envy you that you have the opportunity to have someone who understands so much about language learning. It's not just about grammar and vocab; it goes much deeper.
My lessons & teaching style
We will have a short conversation in our first class so that I can get an idea of your current language level. While doing that, we will get to know each other and I will ask you about your goals, needs, and wants.
From there, I will design lessons that are tailored to your objectives in order to maximize your time spent learning and practicing the foreign language.
KR: 혹시, 칠문 있으시면 메시지를 남겨 주세요! 바로 연락 드리겠습니다!
PT: Por favor, sinta-se à vontade para fazer qualquer pergunta! Me manda uma mensagem!
GER: Bitte zögere nicht, fall du Fragen hast. Schicke mir einfach eine Nachricht!

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.

Very happy with my 5 lessons with Josias so far! He has a strong lesson program and takes the time to adapt it to my own needs. On top of that he easily spots what goes wrong in the learning process and drills down on it until I understand the subject :)
Can definitely recommend him as a German teacher!

Josias is friendly, open-minded, and fun! He helps me a lot as a native conversational partner. We talked about many different topics, and he is always willing to adjust himself to my English level, correct mistakes, and wait for me when I speak. I highly recommend him as a tutor for your journey of learning English.
영어가 서툴거나 외국인과의 일대일 대화가 어색한 한국인 학습자에게도 적합한 좋은 튜터라고 생각됩니다. :)
