Very hands-on

Josh was able to help my kid get ready for her finals, focusing on both English and History. We were in a time-crunch but made every minute of the tutoring count.

Knowledgable and relatable tutor for learning differences

Josh helped our son who has dyslexia. He encouraged him to read more, in fact they enjoyed reading Shakespeare together. He also would help him with his writing homework.
