United States Naval Academy (General Engineering)
Loyola College in Maryland (Master's)
I previously taught at the United States Naval Academy from Jan 2009 to Dec 2012 as an Adjunct Instructor/Tutor teaching Calculus I and tutoring Pre-Calc, Calc I, Calc II, Statics, and the Aviation Selection Test Battery (ASTB - a standardized test required for those who want to fly in the Navy/Marine Corps). My last assignment in the Navy before retiring in 2009 was as the Director of Professional Tutoring at the United States Naval Academy, where I supervised 8 Masters/PhD level tutors, taught Learning Skills (Time Management, Note Taking, Test Taking, etc.), and tutored Calc I, Statics and the ASTB. Additionally, I coached high school volleyball for 10 years in Anne Arundel County, and tutored some of my players over the years in Algebra II, Pre-Calc, and Calculus.

Joe knows the material and is able to present it clearly. He is quick to respond to emails and is always on time for lessons. Joe is an overall great guy and we highly recommend him for students who need help with pre-calc or calculus.
I have NEVER been a student that excelled in math (think "C" average). My greatest accomplishment of 2014 was getting an "A" in calculus with Joe's help!
Joe is an exceptional tutor! I needed someone who was willing to be patient and explain every concept...sometimes more than once. He was very flexible, and was always willing to stay past the 60 minute time-frame and help. He provided me with his own study sheets which were very helpful. Joe is great at finding your weaknesses and addressing them early. He makes sure you have a solid background before moving onto harder concepts.
Joe did the impossible: making calculus enjoyable. Joe cares about his students and their success; he sent me a motivational email before my final. Joe was the first person I called when I found out I got an "A" because it would have been impossible without his help. I would recommend Joe to everyone and anyone who needs a math tutor.
Joe P. is a great tutor! My daughter was having major trouble in her AP Calculus class and we searched several places for a tutor. We discovered WyzAnt and fortunately Joe. He was patient, easy to understand and great with explaining the concepts. Joe was very reliable and dedicated, meeting with her even on the snowy days this past winter. Each marking period her grades improved and she completed the fourth marking period with 87% in AP Calculus. I would recommend Joe P. to anyone that needs a tutor. The results speak for themselves.
My son actually enjoys his time with Joe and doesn't feel like he is being "preached" to. Joe seems to make concepts clear and easy to follow and my son feels like he is getting valuable information.
Joe helped my son with Precalculus and the test results were amazing after only a couple of tutor sessions. My son's grades improved immediately and his confidence level increased as well. Joe P is an outstanding tutor and I recommend him without reservations. Many thanks, Joe, for being an excellent tutor.
Joe gets a lot covered in a short amount of time. My son says, "If you don't understand something, he figures out a way to help you understand the work by explaining it another way". My son relates well to him and is making great progress.
I hired Joe to help me pass intermediate algebra. At the end of the class I not only passed the class but received a "B", which gives me the option to take Precalculus if I choose to. Mission accomplished! Joe knows the subject very well and helped me greatly, I recommend Joe without reservations!
Joe provided weekly tutoring help for my high school student. The location was convenient and the time flexible. Joe assessed my son's needs, made sure he understood some basics, and then moved on from there. This made everything easier! My son's grades improved immediately and his confidence level increased as well. We are very pleased with the results and feel fortunate to have had Joe's help! Thank you!
Joe did help my daughter with geometry. He was very patient and want step by step on how to solve the problem.
The test results were amazing after only a couple of tutor sessions. After trying the math lab and peer tutoring at school, we decided to hire Joe P - best decision ever!
My daughter was thrilled to finally understand her precalculus homework. She said Joe was the best math teacher she had ever had.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I am familiar with both the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) and the Aviation Selection Test Battery (ASTB). The ASVAB is used by all of the military services to qualify for enlisted positions, while the ASTB is used by the Navy for officer programs and the Marine Corps and the Coast Guard for officer flight programs.
I took the ASVAB when I was in 10th grade and received scores (in percentile) of Verbal-96, Math-97, Perceptual Speed-22 (I was a slow reader), Mechanical-98, Trade Technical-87, and Academic Ability-98.
I tutor the ASTB at the United States Naval Academy. In March 2010, I was hired by Barron's Educational Series as an Independent Contractor to review their Military Flight Aptitude Tests book for a future edition.
I have a BS in General Engineering from the United States Naval Academy. I passed the Maryland Engineer in Training (EIT) exam. I currently tutor Statics at the Naval Academy.
For two years I worked in the Center for Academic Excellence at the United States Naval Academy. During part of that time that time, I was a Learning Skills Instructor and taught topics such as Time Management, Note Taking, Effective Reading, and Test Taking.
I am an experienced volleyball coach, having coached high school volleyball for 9 years, 4 years as the Varsity Asst Coach and 5 years as the JV Head Coach. I also coached club volleyball for two years for the 16 and under team of the BAVA club. I have been affiliated with both the Men's and Women's Naval Academy Volleyball teams and worked the Naval Academy Volleyball Camp for 3 years. I played volleyball competitively for 20 years, both indoor and sand.
