My name is Joseph Martin. I have earned a Bachelor of Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I have also earned a Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) certification after successfully completing a 120 hour online course taught by International TEFL and TESOL Training (ITTT).
I was immediately enrolled in another course taught by ITTT; this new course focused on teaching English to young learners. After successfully completing this 50 hour course, I earned a Certificate in Teaching English to Young Learners (CTEYL) at International TEFL and TESOL Training (ITTT).
Over the years, I have also helped many of my friends with conversational English; these Korean, Chinese and Japanese students have been studying in various disciplines at the University of Illinois. During the course of my university life, I met them as friends and began helping them with English. This has provided me with invaluable experience to further help students from those east Asian countries and other regions.
