About Joseph

I have been working in the field of education for the past 6 years. At the onset of my journey, I served as a tutor for SurePrep Learning, which was a company that provided federally funded academic support to students in low-income neighborhoods.

As I developed into a more effective educator, I was chosen to be an AmeriCorps mentor during my last year of college. For the past 2 years, I've acquired my Masters degree in Elementary Education, while also working as a teacher at an after school education facility and as a substitute for various school districts in the area.

My journey as a teacher continues to steadily move forward, but my growth is dependent on the interactions and experiences I have with my students. As a result, my method of instruction not only emphasizes the significance of understanding topics so you can display a mastery over it, but I strive to deliver my instruction in an engaging, "fun" manner. I look forward to working with you, so that you'll not only learn, but also enjoy the learning process.

My experiences in the education field, has helped me identify when a student is struggling because they have not quite mastered basic skills embedded in what they are learning. Especially for math, it is important to assess current skill levels, so that a specific skill or content area can be mastered.

As an alumni of UCR with a major in English, I have studied literature and linguistic material that challenged me to understand the various mechanics and rules associated with grammar.

As a current educator, the common core curricula has, in some shape or form, been integrated into every school district in California. As a result, I have helped teach and develop lessons that revolve around this method of instruction.

I currently possess a Masters Degree in Elementary Education. I understand the developmental stages of early childhood development and how that influences learning. I also have a variety of different experiences in terms of guiding academic and personal growth in elementary aged children.

I look forward to speaking with you! I'm always ready to help a student grow and learn in a way that they'll enjoy! Feel free to contact me to schedule a lesson, I will be more than willing to set up a session.

Knowledgeable tutor

Joseph was patient and very knowledgeable with my 10 years old son, who is autistic. He took the time to asses him, so we can figure out a lesson plan to help him better.
