About Joel


Bio

I have a degree in mathematics from MIT, and for 10 years I have been teaching all levels of mathematics. I truly love math and enjoy seeing my students learn new concepts and solve problems, from middle school to adult.

I believe in the power of teaching, explaining material clearly, and structuring material. I know that when you are cramming for an exam, practicing a method for high value problems takes precedence, though I always strive to help my students build foundations by...

I have a degree in mathematics from MIT, and for 10 years I have been teaching all levels of mathematics. I truly love math and enjoy seeing my students learn new concepts and solve problems, from middle school to adult.

I believe in the power of teaching, explaining material clearly, and structuring material. I know that when you are cramming for an exam, practicing a method for high value problems takes precedence, though I always strive to help my students build foundations by explaining material in an intuitive, methodological way. Once a student understands a concept, practice makes perfect!

I have taught middle school algebra, high school calculus, SAT/ACT prep, college statistics, and just about any other mathematics subject. I would love to help you with your Algebra, Geometry, Trig, Pre-Calc, Calculus, SAT, ACT, SAT Math I and II, Linear Algebra, Probability, Statistics, Differential Equations. You name it!

(*I can also teach python, R, SQL, and data science for professionals)

MATLAB

I worked at MIT Lincoln Laboratory from June 2011 to December 2013. My entire group, including myself, used MATLAB for projects. I coded daily in both MATLAB and Python, including modeling, data processing, plotting, algorithm prototyping, and more.
Microsoft Access,

Microsoft Access

When working at EMC in Hopkinton MA, I was responsible for merging data and creating reports. I used Microsoft Access in conjunction with data imports from other databases and Excel. I am familiar with the Access interface as well as the underlying SQL needed to make precise queries.

Differential Equations,

Differential Equations

I made an A in Differential Equations my freshman year at MIT. I then went on to take further classes using differential equations, such as my Math for Engineers class at Cambridge University. In my senior year at MIT, I was a grader of problem sets for Differential Equations.
Discrete Math,

Discrete Math

Discrete math is the foundation upon which many mathematical ideas are built. As such, most of my classes at MIT utilized discrete math topics--graphs and sets, logic, probability, and number theory for instance. Discrete math is the language through which I and many other mathematicians understand higher-level topics.
Finite Math,

Finite Math

I have a broad background in mathematics, including combinatorics, counting, linear algebra, probability, and statistics. I have taught students topics from each of these fields of finite mathematics.
Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

I was a Math major at MIT. I studied Linear Algebra there as well as on my study abroad at the University of Cambridge. I have also tutored Linear Algebra previously. Lastly, in my previous job at MIT Lincoln Laboratory. I worked in resource optimization and algorithm development, where we used linear algebra regularly.
