Instructor

Hi, I’m Josiah! I’ve been enjoying helping students in areas of writing, English, and communication for four years now. I am a native of Virginia, where I obtained my undergraduate degree in international relations with a focus in public policy and Modern Standard Arabic. I received my Advanced TESOL certification (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) this past year, and I am currently working toward my Masters of Public Administration. As my full-time job, I have been working for the US House of Representatives for approximately one year now. As one has attempted to learn another language (Latin, Arabic, German, and Spanish), I have grown in my appreciation for patience in learning and in teaching. That has inspired my passion for helping others understand English and enjoy the thrill of learning!
