About Joseph

I have tutored and been teaching students for about 20+ year in various higher education institutions. More recently, I taught English, Communications, and a Professionalism and Success course (BUS 101) at a local college. I

I was inspired to tutor our young people because I believe that all students have great potential if they are led by the right assistance and tutoring help. A plan must be developed to not only teach the student, but to make it a pleasant learning experience to lessen the stress and fear already created in the difficulty they are having with the Subject Matter at hand.

I have been a writing of short stories, novels, poetry, and blogging for many years. I love writing and enjoy seeing the work that is created by those I teach. Further, I use personalization to get the students used to writing and opening up about themselves by connecting their own experiences to their work. Finally, I think it is imperative that students understand that everyone can be an awesome writer once they have expelled the triggers that caused them to feel inferior in the subject matter at hand.

I am a serious, but fun tutor/teacher because I fully care about the interests and needs of those I serve. I am also 50 years old and have been through this process for quite some time. I have a nice home in Hollywood, CA with an office where I can work with you. We will also be utilizing the Internet as a research tool in writing and formatting papers in the American Psychological Associations (APA) format guidelines. Most apprehensiveness to writing is simply due to triggers such as 'you aren't a good writer' or 'your writing sucks.' These things are not supportive of our young people and indicate the limits to which our educators are stretched with the ratios of students to teachers in our public and some private school sectors. There is no such thing as a horrible write, but simply an artistic in the making.

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.

Microsoft Outlook

I have been using Outlook for 15 or more years. I have worked in higher education establishments that only use Microsoft Outlook for their email and appointment making processes. I have always been the one to learn the tricks faster and to show them to others.

Microsoft Word

I have been working with Microsoft Office products for 15 or more years. I just recently purchased Microsoft Office 365, which is a cloud-based application. This means that the documents are filed on a safe place housed on the Internet that can be retrieved from any location where you log-in to your account.

Word has many wonderful features that can make your life much simpler especially with the different choices between menu items or using the icons that are all part of this software product. I have used word to create worksheets for students, tests, class lectures, short-stories, poetry, and much more.

I am truly fascinated by all the features that Word allows us to use to make a document really standout when you need to use graphs, charts, spreadsheets, pictures, or other graphic images. Further, word is great if you just want to compose simple correspondence as well.
