STUDENT TESTIMONIAL

“Over the course my undergraduate education at Cornell University and graduate studies at SDSU’s Graduate School of Public Health I have completed 6 semesters of college-level chemistry coursework. In this time I have enlisted the help of three different chemistry tutors, as well as tutors in physics and calculus. I consider myself, therefore, a discerning consumer of tutoring services, particularly in the physical and biological sciences. I met with Joseph weekly for the past year, and with his assistance completed two semesters of pre-med organic chemistry with strong scores.

Joseph is highly qualified and demonstrated an outstanding command of organic chemistry. He is the most experienced and professional tutor I have worked with in my 7 years of higher education. Punctual and organized, he often arrived at our meeting place early and with materials related to my current coursework in-hand. In addition to a strong grasp of all the material covered in my course, Joseph demonstrated a genuine interest in the art of teaching. He often inquired about the teaching methods used by my instructors, and explained concepts in terms of how they may be posed on an exam. Furthermore, Joseph was generous with his time, going out of his way to ensure that I had every resource to succeed. It was not uncommon that I would receive an email within hours of our last meeting, following up on concepts I had found challenging with additional study resources. At the end of every meeting, Joseph reminded me that he was always available for questions via email and telephone.

As a recent graduate of San Diego State University’s Graduate School of Public Health and a future medical school applicant, I recommend the tutoring services of Joseph enthusiastically and without reservations."

STUDENT TESTIMONIAL
"As a student I found that Joseph was a great tutor and very influential on my final grade in Organic Chemistry. The course proved to be very difficult for me and meeting with Joseph before my exams really helped me understand the information better. Not only did Joseph take the time to meet with me, but he made himself available for any questions and drove all the way to my location to meet. Another asset that Joseph provided was informational flowcharts and diagrams that were helpful in understanding the information. Overall, I would recommend Joseph as a tutor and I felt very comfortable working with him."

STUDENT TESTIMONIAL "Joseph is an outstanding tutor, and I would recommend him to anyone. Not only does he adapt his teaching style to each students unique needs, but he also makes you feel extremely comfortable; I was able to admit I was completely lost at times without being embarrassed. He worked with me through every detail of first semester organic chemistry, and while the class was averaging 39% on exams I was receiving grades of 87%. You can tell he sincerely cares if his students succeed, and even puts himself "on-call" before exams for any last minute questions. If you are a willing to put in the effort, he will go above and beyond to work with you to receive the grade you desire. With his help I was able to achieve an A in a subject that results with half the class failing each semester."
