About Joshua


I completed my B.Sc. in Microbiology from Arizona State University. I minored in Spanish, Human Nutrition and Music. I have been a traveling member of ASU Global Medical Brigades. I am currently preparing for the MCAT, and applying to medical school, as well.

I am also a native Arizonian, and enjoy rock climbing, west coast swing dancing, swimming and singing.

Tutoring life science courses and chemistry is something I thoroughly enjoy. As you are likely aware, these courses involve much more than mere memorization. They involve having a firm grasp of concepts, and being able to explain processes. Once we have identified which learning style(s) works best for you, a tailored approach to your method of learning is then applied.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Additionally, I have work experience working for 2 locally-owned health food stores.

Well-educated & understanding. — During the times I have met with Josh regarding microbiology, he has been able to answer most of my questions. The questions he did not fully understand, he would research and reply as soon as possible. I myself, have a neurological disorder and his illustrations and ability to be creative with the material really help with memorization. ...
