About Joshua Psalms


Bio

First, I'm a Civil Engineering graduate of Mapua Institute of Technology, an ABET-accredited university back in the Philippines and I'm currently an Engineer-in-Training here in the US so Mathematics is really my core.

Regarding experience, I actually had a lot though most were off the record professionally. I was an adviser of Center for Student Advising of my university and it's literally a tutorial center. Higher batches from second year and beyond can teach everything they can to anyone...

First, I'm a Civil Engineering graduate of Mapua Institute of Technology, an ABET-accredited university back in the Philippines and I'm currently an Engineer-in-Training here in the US so Mathematics is really my core.

Regarding experience, I actually had a lot though most were off the record professionally. I was an adviser of Center for Student Advising of my university and it's literally a tutorial center. Higher batches from second year and beyond can teach everything they can to anyone for free. I was a member for 3 years until I graduated and I've taught almost every preparatory engineering subjects there is: from Algebra, Trigo, Physics, Mechanics, etc.

Professionally, I had an actual experience as a professor because while I was waiting for my board examination, my university hired me to teach 6 classes (4 Trigonometry and 2 Solid Mensuration) for the Department of Mathematics consisting of 40 students each. I taught for 3 months (1 term for a Quarterm System of Education) before passing the board exam and flying here in the US.

I'm an engineer at heart so I bleed math. Besides from competing since high school, I've already taught hundreds of people either individually or by group from Algebra to Differential Equations.

Subjects

Business

Microsoft Excel,

Microsoft Excel

I've been using Excel for the most of my life since when I was a child up to the present being a professional. I had a computer business then and I easily learned it since it was our forte. I further mastered it when I wrote one of my theses because it's very helpful especially in statistical treatment. And again in the civil engineering industry where the spreadsheet is still a thing even though there are already far more advanced software present.
Microsoft PowerPoint,

Microsoft PowerPoint

I am very lucky that I am a very talkative person. The result of that is that I am usually the one taking care of presentations. Even in the early 2000's, I was already one of the advanced students able to use PowerPoint. Since I started early, I am now fully capable of doing presentations properly and easily. I've also learned along the way the unwritten rules on presenting and I will give pointers on how the "presentation" (the file) should help YOUR presentation (physical).
Microsoft Word

Microsoft Word

Microsoft is the first software (aside from paint) that I actually learned to use. I used it all my life since my essays in elementary up to my theses both in high school and college. It is pretty safe to assume that I've already used it for more than a couple of thousand times in all sorts of ways, be it for personal or professional purposes. I've also learned the techniques in making the document more efficient and to get faster in doing specific commands.

Elementary Education

Elementary Math

Elementary Math

I've been teaching long enough and I had experience how to deal with children and adults alike. I am confident enough with my basics in mathematics to better explain it more easily regardless the age. There should be no guilt in looking for help on elementary math because it's just a matter of knowing it or not and it doesn't define your intellect.

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I've taught Algebra countless times during my time as university tutor, starting from the very basic and foundation of Algebra up to Advanced Algebra. I also have materials regarding Algebra.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

Advanced Algebra is one of my better honed subjects because I've already mastered it since high school due to competitions. It was tackled again during my college years now including some engineering applications. I've also taught many times during my time as a tutor of my university.
Calculus,

Calculus

I've taught Calculus countless times during my time as university tutor, from Differential to Integral Calculus. Calculus in one of the major mathematical cores of Civil Engineering especially in Strength of Materials so my knowledge regarding it will always be fresh.
Geometry,

Geometry

After I graduated, my university hired me as a professor for the Department of Mathematics where in I taught six (6) sections: two (2) of those are Plane and Solid Geometry classes consisting of 30 students each.
Physics,

Physics

My knowledge in physics will basically won't fade because it's the structure of my industry (Civil Engineering). It's the preparatory for Mechanics up to Design subjects. As a student, my Physics subjects have been some of my best performances grade-wise.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

I've mastered the foundation of mathematics through the years and I also learned how to simplify it. I love teaching it at any age and have no trouble in doing so. Even though I taught college students, there were still some that lacks the basic in mathematics so I still had the experience in enlightening students whether young or old about these topics.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

My knowledge generally to Precalculus, specifically the advance parts of Algebra, Trigonometry, Geometry etc. has been vastly honed through the years. I mastered the concepts back in high school and also in college. I further refined the approach on the lessons when I started teaching. I learned to improve the common ways and find simpler ways in solving the problems.
SAT Math

SAT Math

SAT is a not so different anymore from ACT since most of the content is the same and the penalty for wrong answers is now gone. However, the difficulty of questions is now higher, and you need more critical thinking. I can teach the best and easiest way of solving problem to save time while taking the exam since I am used to taking the same type of exam daily while in college.

Math

ACT Math,

ACT Math

I've took different kinds of summarized examinations all throughout my life. I've learned how to solve problems in the easiest and fastest way especially for this type of 60-minute, 60-question examination where time pressure is the enemy and that is thanks to my experience on math competitions. I can also give pointers regarding the preparation before taking the exam.

Probability,

Probability

I took Probability once in high school and it's a vital part for one of my theses alongside Statistics. In college, again I took Probability and Statistics with application on Civil Engineering while the same concepts being considered. Aside from teaching it, it is very abundant in everyday life in our industry.

Trigonometry

Trigonometry

As part of my hiring after graduating, I've also taught four (4) Trigonometry classes with 40 students each. It covered the most important parts of trigonometry starting from the basic trigonometric functions, identities, and basic spherical triangles as well.
