Hello, my name is Joe. I currently work as a staff accountant for a local credit union, and I have an associate's degree in accounting. I live and work in Sturtevant. I graduated in 2001 from Waterford High School with a 3.7 GPA, and I graduated with a 4.0 GPA from Gateway Tech College. During my time at Gateway, I was a student tutor in the Academic Support Center. In fact, I still have the privilege of working there as an online accounting tutor. I also have some experience working with local students that heard about me through high-school guidance counselors. Math has always been a strong subject for me, and I can also help out with most accounting classes. I am extremely strong with Microsoft Excel.
I am passionate and really enjoy helping students learn things that they never thought they could. I myself am a visual learner, and I learn by examples. Therefore, I tend to try and teach by using a lot of examples. I will break things down into a specific step by step process, and take away the illusion that the subject is impossible to figure out! If students believe they CAN learn something, that is the 1st step and most important step to actually learning!
