About Joseph

Hi, my name is Joseph S. I have been teaching and tutoring math and physics for the last 30 years. I tutored in Lebanon, Canada, and California. This gives me a diversity of experience with different cultures across the world.
I hold an undergraduate BS degree with a physics major and math as minor. I also have specialized courses in math and physics. I also have a master's in teaching.
I have tutored AP physics B, AP physics C which are College Board courses and are equivalent to university credits.
I also tutored physics, algebra I and II, trig, geometry, precalculus and calculus.
The diversity of teaching methods that I use and the hands-on activities help students grasp the concept and solve its problems including word problems.
I am passionate and compassionate with students and use different teaching techniques until the student understands the work.

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 taught Algebra I for several years for high school students. I have worked patiently with students who struggle and helped them to achieve their best possible grade.

Geometry

I taught geometry in high school for more than 12 years. Starting from term definition to two column proofs to Polyhedrons and their properties to solid geometry.

Physics

I am an experienced physics teacher at all levels with the topics of Newtonian Mechanics that includes: kinematics; dynamics; momentum and collision; energy and work; rotational motion; universal gravity and satellite motion; Oscillations and periodic motion, Geometric and Physical optics; Electrostatics; Electromagnetism; Electric circuits, energy levels and photo electric effect, and other smaller topics.

Prealgebra

I had taught Math for more than 35 years, from elementary arithmetic to precalculus and calculus to students of different abilities.
I know the areas in these subjects where students can face difficulty. I use different strategies to help the student understand the concepts under discussion.

Precalculus

The precalculus course covers the concepts of functions, polynomial, rational functions, exponential, logarithm, trig functions, system of equations, and analytic geometry.

This course is rich with real life situations.

Very patient and approachable. Great tutor. — Joseph was extremely patient and approachable. He really helped me understand what I was doing and took the time to explain and re-explain anything I had trouble with. As someone who has a lot of anxiety when it comes to math, he really helped me. He is a very experienced person and knew how to solve any problem I had from my textbook within seconds. He is also really nice! Thank you, sir! ...
