 Joakim is conscientious and has a very pleasant manner. He is patient and explains every point I ask him. I am not quite a beginner, but not far off, and he has been very good at finding online resources that I can use outside the lesson time. I am looking forward to my Norwegian improving with Joakim's help.

 Joakim was great in his explanation of the basic grammar of the Norwegian language especially for me as a complete beginner. In our first lesson he provided very useful examples and clarified many of the questions I had!

About me - English

I am a 29 year old teacher, currently working in a Norwegian secondary school (grades 8 to 10). However, I am an MBA (Master of Business Administration), and have worked in the service industry and as a business developer in India. Additionally, I have worked voluntarily in Africa, as well as in the international student organization of AIESEC.

I am a passionate traveler and really interested in sports. I really enjoy discovering and learning about (to me) new cultures and religions around the globe, which is probably why I was bitten by the travel bug in the first place.

Qualifications & Experience

2018-present: Teaching science and humanities subjects at Hov ungdomsskole, Norway.

Teaching Approach

Learning should be conversation based, including speaking and listening. In addition, reading and writing will complete the learning experience. I strongly believe in the effect of multiple learning tools. I therefore recommend using language learning apps as a complement to language lessons.

Knowing the student(s) is also essential. Thus, our mutual expectations can be set and we could base the lessons upon interests and motivations for learning the language.

I expect the learner of Norwegian to be more or less self-driven. That means that you will actively participate in your own learning. I don't use any (Norwegian course) textbooks, I mainly rely on the student for learning resources. My role is more of a language (conversation) partner and language problem solver, in comparison to a teacher. As a result, I don't give homework - it's your responibility to learn at your own pace and according to your motivation.

I try to compare Norwegian with English and also German (as these are related languages to Norwegian).
