Hi, my name is Mr. Joel. I am an ESL teacher and a freelance academic,
writer and poet. I teach children, teenagers and adults at all levels. My main goal is to share my passion and knowledge of the English language and to prepare my students not only to enter but to excel in the English-speaking world. I am equipped to cover speaking, listening, writing and reading, including test prep, academic skills and conversational skills. I also teach English Literatures and Creative Writing. I have a TESOL certificate and have two degrees, a Bachelor of Creative Arts, majoring in Creative Writing and an Honours degree in English Literatures, both from the University of Wollongong in NSW, Australia. I have won two national poetry prizes and my writing has been published extensively, including a well reviewed book of poems.
