About Joseph

Hello! I am currently a PhD student at USC studying environmental engineering, and I want to help empower the next generation of scientists, engineers, and leaders in my free time! I've completed both my B.S. and M.S. in engineering at the University of California, Berkeley; and I have experience as a private tutor in primarily math.

My goal as a tutor is to meet the student needs where they are at, and to help them progress in their academic endeavors. I know that each student is unique, with their own developmental needs, ways of thinking, talents, and challenges. My challenge and ultimate goal as a tutor is to tend to these individual needs of the student, while empowering them to master their subject.

With my engineering background, I have taken math courses ranging from multivariable calculus, linear algebra, and differential equations; to engineering statistics and probability. My graduate coursework in engineering also required me to utilize these higher level mathematics on a regular basis to solve highly complex engineering problems and computations.

Please contact me for further information and for a consultation meeting if you would like! I am generally free in between schoolwork, and on the weekends. Hope to hear from you soon!

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.

Civil Engineering

BS in Civil and Environmental Engineering from UC Berkeley
MS in Environmental Engineering from UC Berkeley

Differential Equations

I took the required differential equations course (Math 54) at UC Berkeley, which is a prerequisite for many engineering courses I took for my BS/MS. Many engineering courses also required the use and basic understanding of differential equations.

Drums

I've been playing drums as an amateur and enthusiastic since middle school. I've played in many different settings, including jazz band, concert band, drumline, and jam-bands. I am primarily proficient at rudimentary snare drum, and basic to advanced drum-set playing.

Elementary Math

I have a Master's and Bachelor's in engineering from UC Berkeley and took college level mathematics courses required for an engineering degree. I have previously tutored in Algebra and Calculus, including Elementary Math.

Piano

I took lessons for over 10 years from certified private piano teachers, and I finished the California MTAC Certificate of Merit program all the way through the final level. I also received the senior medallion as a high school senior and I performed MTAC State Convention Recital as a high schooler.
