About Joshua

I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Education from SJSU. I also hold a Minor Degree from SJSU in Mathematics, specializing in teaching math for K-8. I have 6 years of teaching experience at a charter school, and I'm currently working as a self employed teacher/tutor for the past 5 years.

I focus on helping my foreign students (business executives, housewives and students) improve in areas such as conversation, pronunciation, accent reduction, reading, writing, grammar and listening. I also work with American students in general areas of study, including reading, math, writing, social studies, history, etc.

I feel strongly about developing relationships with my students in order to find out the specific issues they are having with the subject matter they are studying. I work to create a personal learning plan for them, which helps them with these issues and improves their confidence and skills. I like to us authentic practices when teaching, always catering my lessons to fit the needs of my students!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am qualified to tutor Elementary (K-6th) subjects because I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. I also have a Minor in Mathematics (K-8th). I have taught and tutored K-8th grade students for 10+ years. I have experience teaching/tutoring Language Arts during that time. I feel that these qualifications are sufficient enough to qualify to tutor this particular subject.
