My goal is to provide a convenient and helpful service. I usually meet with students in the comfort of their own home or a neutral place like the library in Cedar Park or Starbucks.

My policies are all about customer satisfaction. I offer scheduled tutoring and I am on call as needed and available. I do not charge students for being late or canceling lessons. I guarantee your satisfaction with each lesson (or no charge will be made).

I'm a full time tutor committed to my students 9a-9p / 6 days a week and after 2:00 on Sundays.

I hold a Texas Teaching Certificate, in Mathematics and Composite Science, for Grades 6-12. I've held various positions in Austin area schools including Math Teacher and Science Teacher. The schools and districts I've worked with include Austin ISD, Leander ISD and University Charter Schools.

I have an Associates Degree from Austin Community College (ACC) and a BS from the University of Texas (UT). At ACC I was primarily interested in oracle database. At the UT my interest was primarily Nutritional Biochemistry.

I started tutoring mathematics for the first time as a service of the National High School Honor Society at Westlake High School (back in 1985). I became interested in teaching mathematics professionally in 1994. At that time I was working as the Physics teacher at Crockett High School/Austin ISD and had an opportunity to teach computer math and so become certified in mathematics. Over time my academic interests changed from science to technology to mathematics. After three years of working as a part time WyzAnt math tutor, I quit my job as a technology teacher with Bits, Bytes and Bots and started working full time with WyzAnt math students.

I have not entirely left behind my interest in science. Understanding how to balance an equation, determine a molecular formula, percent yield or just convert units can be a challenge because many chemistry students struggle to understand mathematical relationships in chemistry. It is therefore my pleasure to work with chemistry students as well.

This problem is not a math problem, but an economic's problem. What do you do when you're over budget? There isn't a simple answer to that! 7000 bushels of grain, even if all the grain is the less expensive $1.10/bushel of oats will cost a lot more then $4275.00! It's time to sell some livestock...

Hi Laura, When you solve for a single variable in a simplified equation like this one you perform "reverse" operations (undue subtraction with addition and undue division with multiplication) on both sides of the equation until you've "isolated" the variable (which in...

Professional, Punctual and Knows his Math! — As a distance learner this year, my son struggled with his Algebra lessons and it was quickly becoming clear he wasn't going to make the grade. After researching tutors for several hours it was Joe to the rescue! Joe came right out to the house and sat next to my son as he did his lessons. He quickly identified my son's learning style and broke down the material in such a way that my son could mor ...
