About Josh

I'm 26 years old and for the first time in my life I'm not a student. That is until next year when I start medical school. I am a social, passionate, intelligent individual with 3 years tutoring experience. I also have 2 years experience as a teaching assistant for Graduate students at Touro university, California. I have tutored students from pre-K to college in a variety of subjects. I have tutored privately and for a county office of education at a homeless shelter. I have seen significant improvement and received positive feedback from nearly all of my students.

I have 2 masters' degrees, one in public health and one in biomedical imaging. I would love the opportunity to get to know you and help you on your journey.

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.

I was trained in tutoring individuals with ADD/ADHD by San Luis Obispo county Office of Education. I also have experience tutoring individuals with ADD/ADHD.
