Hello,

My name is Joshua, and if I had to pick three words to describe myself, they would be: Motivated, Personable, Professional. I have three degrees, two of which are psychology specific. I can, however, tutor in a multitude of subjects and have done so for many years while attending Wright State University and Sinclair Community College. These subjects include but are not limited to: Math (Algebra-general, college, Statistics, Geometry, Basic); Science (Biology, Chemistry, Computer, Psychology); Social Studies (History--American/World); Computer Literacy (Microsoft Office); Paper Writing; Vocabulary; Presentations/Public Speaking; Research/Scientific Methods & Design; General Study Habits.

Some important things to know about me are that I'm a student and bookworm at heart. I have such a thirst for knowledge that if I don't know the answer, I will research it to find out. I also encourage the people around me to do the same as it brings the level of mutual interests to the forefront. I have begun my graduate program at Mercyhurst University-Erie, PA. I hope one day to be working in the Intelligence Collection and Analysis field.
