About Joseph

One of the best parts of learning for me is helping others to learn. As a cum laude graduate in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, I know how difficult learning can be, and how applying one’s self with dedication can lead to success. As a tutor, I truly enjoy guiding tutees along their path of learning and assisting them in realizing learning independence so they can continue on the path of learning with confidence and clarity.

I have tutored for three years and the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA) has certified me in one-on-one tutoring as well as a leader of group tutoring sessions. I specialize in biology, ecology, math, and chemistry.

In sessions, I aim to guide the tutee in a level of understanding so they can reach learning independence and apply the learning techniques we cover in the future with confidence. I will not just give the answers, but will challenge tutees without overwhelming them.

I am available for in-person one-on-one sessions as well as online, and group-tutoring sessions can be arranged if needed. I look forward to helping you accomplish your learning goals.


I've taken many courses in mathematics including Calculus, and, as Algebra is an integral component of Calculus, I have many hours of practice. I have also tutored Algebra 1 for three years at a local community college.

I graduated cum laude with a degree in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, and have succeeded in many Science courses including Biology, Ecology, Chemistry and Physics.

I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions about my qualifications, or the subjects I tutor. Have a great day.

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.

Biostatistics

I graduated cum laude with a Bachelor's of Science degree in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from the University of California Santa Cruz. While pursuing my degree, I completed a lecture and lab course in Biostatistics. I have since performed many statistical analyses of data both provided as course material as well as collected myself during various research projects.

Zoology

I graduated cum laude with a Bachelor's of Science degree in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from the University of California Santa Cruz. While pursuing my degree, I succeeded in an introductory Zoology course, as well as several upper-division courses focusing on Zoological fields including Comparative Vertebrate Anatomy, Vertebrate Paleontology, Ichthyology, and Herpetology. I also led one-on-one and group tutoring session in introductory Zoology for two years.
