About Joshua

I'm a mechanical engineering major with a music minor at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. My strengths are math and science, although I can help with history and English (I write poetry and songs in my free time). I've been tutoring my peers and younger students since my freshman year in high school - that was 5 years ago. I attended an LAUSD highly gifted high school.

Tutoring is all about filling in the gaps in understanding what was taught in the classroom. Sometimes it just takes a new perspective and explanation to get you on the right track again. Without a cumulative understanding of the material you won't see an improvement in your grades. And that's where a tutor comes in. Your tutor should help you understand the formulas and concepts. That's where I come in. There's nothing more exciting then watching the face of one my kids light up after he/she finally gets "it." And if I can make the material fun, even better.

I have excelled in math during all of my years in school. I have always received high grades. I took Algebra 2, Math Analysis, AP Calculus AB, AP Calculus BC, Calculus 3 & 4; AP Chemistry; AP Physics. I took 13 AP subjects in high school and received college credit for all of them.

If you need extra help and study groups aren't helping, then you should think of hiring a tutor. This website is great because you can literally try out a few tutors before settling on one who clicks with you. Let's meet and go over an assignment and see if I'm the tutor for you.

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.

Public Speaking

I have passed college level public speaking as the top speaker in class. I have experience giving persuasive, informative, and tribute speeches. I offer advice for, and correct speeches of students currently in public speaking. I am employed by my college to give tours of campus housing, which involves giving a half-hour long informative speech. I have experience speaking in front of large crowds.


I have been involved in theatre for thirteen years. I have been cast In a variety of shows, from drama's like The Crucbible, to farce's like Black Comedy. I have taken college level acting courses and performed considerably well. I have also participated in theater competitions, and have performed in a variety of musicals.
