About Joe

I have been tutoring Math and Science for over 30 years in Oklahoma, New Jersey as well as here in California. I take some time to get to learn about my students likes/dislikes so that I can relate the lessons to their interests or background. I like to use things they are familiar with to teach them the applications of the laws of math and science. I have always been successful if the student listens and is honest with me. Most of my students go from failing to making A or B. Please call me to see if your student can learn to enjoy math/science or at least get the grade they deserve.

My philosophy: My grandmother taught me it was rude to brag on your successes, therefore the idea of talking about me is difficult. I do believe that when a child is struggling with schoolwork there is a lot of stress on the whole family unit. I talk with the child about their interests and their strengths so I can build a program for each individual to become successful. I have found in many cases in as little as five or six sessions, there is a tremendous reduction in stress on the family, so if you as a parent are feeling at wits end, please contact me and see if life can become more enjoyable.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Algebra 1

I have been tutoring Algebra 1 for over 30 years. Most of my students end up with A's.

Elementary (K-6th)

While in High School I was a one-on-one mentor/tutor for children who were falling behind in reading. In addition to that I have volunteered for several years, most of the time one day a week with my daughters' classes, where I would review reading, grammar, and math problems with the students in a one-on-one or one-on-two setting. Many of these students were able to catch up to the rest of the class.

Geometry

I have tutored many high school students in both Geometry and chemistry and find this a fun activity.

Study Skills

I have worked with study groups to set up questions on subject matter. I taught note taking to kids in Boy Scouts. I have taught people how to break down problems to find the root of things and then develop a solution. My style of tutoring is to show the student how various things interact so even though it might be a word problem, I make sure their English skills are up to speed.
