My name is Joseph and I have been teaching for over 23 years at the middle and high school level.
I am the author of 4 published children's books.
I have been trained in several literacy programs and hold an English credential in 3 states.
I also hold a bi-lingual authorization, a Master's degree in learning disabilities and currently hold math credentials in both California and Florida for math grades 5-9.
My abilities lie in teaching English reading and writing and more recently I have been teaching math to low performing students. I can teach those who feel they don't have an aptitude for mathematics.
I have been very successful teaching pre-algebra, pre-geometry and algebra I to students who have not been reaching their potential. I make learning fun and teach through a variety of modalities, making learning relevant to students' needs and students' lives. I have won awards and commendations for improving student performance in years past.
I have vast experience working with students with learning disabilities in all areas.
I teach full-time in the Long Beach Unified school District.
