I adapt my tutoring approach to the needs of the student and am patient. I enjoy working with students of all levels. I consistently get excellent result with my math tutoring.
I explain the concepts in ways that are easy to understand. In mathematics often if you are having problems, you missed something earlier on, so I try to identify what basic areas you need work in, and help you understand the fundamentals first and move on to the more difficult problems you are working on currently. It is also important that you understand the concept. Relying on memory does not work in mathematics. Tutoring is not lecturing, and I adapt to the student, working through problems with the student, and making up similar problems to make sure the student understands.
I have a very strong academic math background, including a math degree from Johns Hopkins. I have over 3000 hours tutoring experience. I can tutor the most difficult high school subjects, including calculus and precalculus. I am experienced in tutoring for honors classes and private schools.
I get very strong results in Math SAT tutoring. I give the student problems suited to the areas he/she has more of a challenge with, and work through them until the student can solve all of that type of problem. I also work with you on understanding basic mathematical facts included in the SAT.
I am also WyzAnt certified in various writing areas. I have professional experience in writing and editing and can tutor writing SAT/ACT as well as math.
“Joe is reliable, intelligent, and very competent. Joe helped my daughter increase her ACT score from a 23 to a 31. She is currently a graduate student at Columbia University. She credits Joe with dramatically improving her test taking strategies.”

ACT Math is different from SAT math in that it covers more advanced math similar to what the student learned in school. The problems are less tricky. I find out what areas the student is weak in, and teach them and assign problems in those areas. I consistently get great results.
I usually tutor higher levels, but get great results with algebra I. I gear the help to the student and their level.
Calculus is one of my favorite subjects to tutor. I know the most difficult topics perfectly.
