About Joshua


Bio

Hey, I'm Josh! I'm a student at the University of Alabama with a major in Astrophysics and a minor in Mathematics. As any student who's had the college experience will tell you, the quality of the professor is perhaps the most important part of the learning experience. Are their lessons engaging and captivating? Can they grab and keep the attention of their students? Do they have enough personality? From my observations of what makes or breaks a good instructor, I seek to make a learning...

Hey, I'm Josh! I'm a student at the University of Alabama with a major in Astrophysics and a minor in Mathematics. As any student who's had the college experience will tell you, the quality of the professor is perhaps the most important part of the learning experience. Are their lessons engaging and captivating? Can they grab and keep the attention of their students? Do they have enough personality? From my observations of what makes or breaks a good instructor, I seek to make a learning environment in which my students want to learn as much as I want to teach them; in which they can actually get their hands dirty, so to speak, and experience the lesson rather than just read and regurgitate.

As mentioned before, I am a minor in Mathematics, and apply the use of mathematics constantly in my field of expertise. I was a part of the Mu Alpha Theta math honor society in high school, and regularly performed one-on-one tutoring in multiple high-school-level math subjects.

As an undergraduate majoring in Astrophysics, I have extensive knowledge and experience in both the conceptual and mathematical elements of Astronomy and Physics. I have worked for three years as an undergraduate TA in the University of Alabama Department of Physics & Astronomy, and have experience tutoring students both one-on-one and in groups in these subjects.

I also have a great deal of experience in a variety of other fields. I have five years of Latin under my belt, and was a member of my high school's chapter of the Junior Classical League. I am also an accomplished music student, with 9+ years of experience on trumpet and 10+ years as a vocalist, and have arranged and composed numerous pieces of music for band. I served as trumpet section leader my senior year of high school, in which I taught fellow band students both as a group and one-on-one.

I want my students to have the fullest, most enjoyable learning experience possible, so any resources or suggestions students or parents can provide are more than welcome. I am easy to contact and will respond to any message at the soonest possible opportunity. Feel free to contact me at any time with any questions or to schedule lessons!

Knowledgeable and tech savvy

Joshua is a good teacher with a kind demeanor. He has some great shortcuts that can help with scientific notation, and he's very savvy with technology, so that's an added plus. I enjoyed learning from him.
