"What A Wonderful AP Calculus Tutor"
Sheila from Westfield, IN on 7/8/14
Joe is a wonderful tutor who happily goes the extra mile to help his students. At the beginning of the year, my daughter was having trouble understanding her AP Calculus class. Within a month of tutoring, she had brought her C/D up to a B, and by the end of the year she received an A as her final grade and a 5 on the AP Calculus test. There were several times when Joe changed his schedule, so that he could help her study for a test the next day. You would be hard pressed to find a more dedicated tutor than Joe.
"Great Tutor for Advanced Math Course"
Anitha from Westfield, IN on 5/21/14
Joe has been an excellent tutor for my son for AP Calculus. He was patient and helped my son get through the course even though there were some initial hiccups with him being transferred from another school. Joe was flexible and tried his best always to accommodate to our schedule. I will recommend him without any reservation to anybody looking for an advanced level math tutor.

July 2013 update:
My son has now completed a full semester of twice-weekly tutoring sessions with Joe. He achieved an A- on his final exam in honors pre-calculus. There is no question that the personal attention and high expectations, and good communication with me about my son's level of progress and commitment, made the difference. My son will be meeting with Joe over the summer to get ready for AP Calculus and with a tutor who truly cares about our child's progress, we are more than confident about the future. Thank you, Joe!
My son has had four sessions with Joe so far, and each time he has reported that his understanding of the material has improved. Joe conveys his enjoyment of the subject and my son feels that Joe enjoys working with him and really believes in him and wants him to be successful. Joe is encouraging. This positive relationship alleviates some of the anxiety that can come with working on a subject that presents challenges. As if all of that were not enough, Joe knows the stuff, cold, without hesitation, and can explain it in more than one way. When we are talking trigonometry, that's important!!

Joe goes above and beyond and is very committed to his students. He has called me on several occasions, outside of tutoring time with my son. He has stayed late when it was required for my son to master the content before a test. His concern for the student's well being goes beyond the topic they are covering for the day and extends to helping students meet their overall goals. His input is insightful and valuable. One of the great things about Joe is that when the problems are especially hard, he says so. This let's his students know the he understands what they are going through and he will be there to help them through the tough stuff.
"Joe F. has improved my daughter's pre-calc/trig grade by a letter grade!"
Jennifer from Carmel, IN on 4/30/13
My daughter has been tutored by Joe F. for the last 3 months. She has always been a good math student however found that she needed additional explanation and more one-on-one support than she was receiving from her teacher. Subsequently her attitude about math and her grade was suffering. Joe F. has really turned around both her attitude and performance. My daughter has appreciated how thoroughly Joe has explained material and especially new concepts. He provides extra problems for them to go through together and then has her independently solve problems to ensure that she grasps the concepts and applies them correctly. My daughter now confidently goes into her quizzes and tests which has resulted in improving her grade by a letter grade. Another reason for her success is that she likes Joe and how he approaches tutoring. I highly recommend Joe!
"Great, enthusiastic tutor; communicates promptly via text messages/email"
Vicky from Carmel, IN on 10/2/12
My daughter loves learning with this tutor and has turned her grades around. He is pleasant, energetic and professional. He clearly loves what he is doing. He is always punctual and will extend the time if my daughter needs it. I am so glad I found Joe.
"Best tutor I have ever had!"
Kathryn from Carmel, IN on 8/26/12
Joe always comes into a session knowing and having an understanding of the material. He is very patient and good at explaining and showing you how to work out a problem. I always come out of a session having such a better grasp on the information I am learning. He has a good teaching process and explains some different ways of going about a problem than the teachers at school. I like how he never expects you to get it first hand and will keep giving you more and more examples until you do. Joe is one of those tutors who will do anything to help you improve your understanding or grade in math. I retook a math semester and the second time I had Joe as a tutor and I ended up raising my grade by two letter grades. There is no mistake in choosing Joe to be your tutor, he is the real deal.
"Very competent and works well with our daughter"
Sunshine from Carmel, IN on 1/24/12
We have been working with Joe for a bit over a month and he has helped our daughter not only improve her grade but more importantly gain a better understanding of the material she is studying. He has taken her back to relearn concepts that she was missing and then brought her forward to understand the current class material.
Joe has a can do attitude and he is able to really communicate with our daughter to instill the confidence in her that she needs to succeed. He not only has his material but he researched our daughter’s teacher to understand that actual class that she is struggling with. He always turns up prepared and ready to work and he helps her set and meet goals. But most importantly she actually looks forward to the learning sessions.
"Tutoring with the best interest of your child in mind"
Heather from Indianapolis, IN on 1/22/12
Joe has been very helpful to my son during the time that he has been tutoring him for math. Previously, my son had no interest in math at all. Joe has been patient and has tried different avenues of attracting my son's interest. He also sends him additional math problems via email free of charge to give my son some extra practice. He goes over these problems at the next session and they are able to discuss what was right or what was wrong. My son actually looks forward to the tutoring session each week!! I can recommend Joe to other parents out there who are looking for a tutor is all about helping your child succeed!
