We feel very fortunate to have found Josh on WyzAnt. He works with our 15-year-old daughter as an organizational tutor and he is fantastic in that role (as I'm sure he would be in working with a child in specific subject areas). He has built a nice rapport with her, getting to know her and her interests so that she feels understood and encouraged. He is an excellent communicator and gives us thorough updates each week. He has gone above and beyond in advocating for her with a teacher. Josh's broad background in education and non-profit work gives him a unique perspective that is invaluable. We have recommended him to several friends and colleagues.
Joshua is a great and patient teacher for our son while teaching him the needed skills to master the SAT.
My son had Josh come by several times for help with ACT preparation. Josh was reliable, patient, and kind. He was easy to get along with. He had practice tests and ideas for strategies that helped my son prepare for the ACT.
Josh is an excellent tutor for both of my children, ages 13 and 17. He is working with my 13 year-old son on English enrichment in preparation for high school, including critical reading, essay writing, test prep, and grammar/usage. Josh has a calm and positive, yet focused manner, and my son comes away from the sessions feeling enthusiastic about the material they have covered. As a parent, I feel confident that my son's skills are improving as I had hoped, and that Josh is holding in mind the ambitious list of goals we established and weaving them into the weekly lesson plans. Josh is also working with my 17 year-old daughter on SAT/ACT prep. I thought that I would need to hire a separate person to tutor her in the math sections, but as an added bonus found that he is working with her on that too-- and quite effectively. When I asked her for feedback on her sessions, she said that she could not think of anything that he could have done better. Highly recommended!
