I have been teaching Algebra and middle school math for 4 years in Camden, NJ. My experience includes classroom teaching, after-school homework help, and one to one tutoring. I frequently work with students far below grade level and close education gaps. I have also worked with accelerated groups in Camden with students that have gone on to receive scholarships and success at highly accredited local high schools.

My strength in tutoring is using vocabulary and phrases for the students to read and understand the material and feel a greater confidence in their work. My end goal is for the student to have the ability to articulate the process and the reasoning back to me using a vocabulary they feel comfortable with.

PJ,   This equation isn't too bad. Just a couple steps and I bet you'll recognize what to do quickly.   12x+9-4x-4 = 3x-7-x+30     Step 1) Combine like terms  *If I think of the equation as having a left side and a right side (split...

Hi Kevin,   I would use slope-intercept form. I always think it's the easiest.   Slope intercept form looks like this  y=mx+b   m is your slope and b is your y-intercept (which you're looking for)   So you have to go from 5x+2y=5 and...

Fabulous tutor — Josh is a fabulous tutor. I would recommend him to any students struggling in algebra. I was in algebra concepts in college. I am absolutely horrible at math and I personally hate the subject. He made it so much easier to understand. His teaching methods and his “tricks” to finding answers to certain problems are extremely helpful. He is able to give that one-on-one reinforcement that you can’t ge ...
