About Joshua

I am a graduate of the University of California at San Diego. My field of study was applied mathematics with a minor in chemistry. I also have an AS in physics and mathematics.

I have 3.5 years of online tutoring experience. I served as a teaching assistant at the University of California at San Diego for various math courses and also have some experience in volunteer tutoring.

My interests include reading and watching any kinds of science fiction I can get my hands on, when time permits. I basically enjoy learning about anything in the field of science even if I don't always understand it all.

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 am applied mathematics major who has been tutoring algebra through calculus at my university for the last year. I have also spent 3 years tutoring those same subjects online so I have vast experience tutoring the various subjects with a large number of students.

Algebra 2

I am applied mathematics major who has been tutoring algebra through calculus at my university for the last year. I have also spent 3 years tutoring those same subjects online so I have vast experience tutoring the various subjects with a large number of students. I consider algebra 2 a very important subject both to those continuing their mathematical careers or those who are not. It has great application to everyday life.

Calculus

Calculus is my favorite subject to tutor. It has the most applications to other fields of science and even subjects such as economics or sociology. It is the perfect capstone to an educational career studying mathematics. I have been tutoring calculus for three years and have spent a year teaching it as a teaching assistant.

Differential Equations

I am a graduate of UCSD with a degree in applied mathematics. Most of my upper division coursework was in ordinary, partial, and numerical analysis of differential equations. It is my favorite subject. I have also tutored the subject numerous times with very successful students.

Geometry

I am applied mathematics major who has been tutoring algebra through calculus at my university for the last year. I have also spent three years tutoring those same subjects online, so I have vast experience tutoring the various subjects with a large number of students.

Prealgebra

Algebra is an intensely important subject to any person interested in science or not. As such, I enjoy helping students in prealgebra so they have a strong foundation for when they reach that next step. I have been tutoring prealgebra for 3 years online and thoroughly enjoy it.

Precalculus

Calculus is my favorite subject. However, it can be difficult without a very strong understanding of trigonometry and precalculus. As such, I very much enjoy helping students build this foundation so when they do get to the higher courses, they can focus mainly on the new material. I have been tutoring precalculus and trigonometry for 3 years.

patient, polite and helpful — I will definitely ask Joshua to tutor me again! We went over series, sequence, divergence/convergence (calc 2)...I didn't know anything going into our session, but i feel totally comfortable after learning from Joshua. ...
