“**Great tutor**”

When people would ask me about my research, their first response is something like, "I took a physics class once. My teacher wasn't good and I didn't understand very much, so I didn't like it." This does not have to be you, no matter what the subject is! I want to help every student become

Joshua is approved to conduct lessons through Wyzant Online. Wyzant Online allows students and tutors to work remotely via video, audio, and collaborative whiteboard tools. For more information about how online tutoring works, check out Wyzant Online.

If you’re interested in online lessons, message Joshua to get started.

I learned a lot about programming, math and physics from him. His lesson is clear and to the point. I highly recommend him as long as you're willing to understand.

Josh helped with Python homework assignment that requires Tweeter API parsing and processing. He is a great tutor who is flexible and willing to work with you patiently.

My son has nothing but positive things to say about Josh. He has really helped my son work through areas he did not master in school. We've seen an increase in his math grade as a result!

My first session with Joshua was excellent. He was very patient and was able to explain the errors I had been getting on my own and helped me understand the steps I needed to write my code. I would recommend him to anyone needing help with ArcPy/ Python!!

Joshua was there early and was very quick to get us working through my questions. He even stayed a little longer to make sure we worked through all of the problems. I would recommend Joshua to anybody looking for help regarding maths and statistics as I was.

Joshua really helped me with my clojure programming project. He was skilled at making the code more meaningful and understanding how to apply language constructs to improve the readability.

He taught me how to use pandas in python.

We are also working on a tool for generating python request module code from working REST API client curl statements.

Joshua is highly knowledgeable on this subject, and also has the ability to explain unintuitive concepts in a way that is easy to understand. Highly recommended!!

Josh was great! We met at the Cheery Creek library and he arrived early. He was very patient and helped me when I ran into firewall restrictions while debugging my assignment. He is extremely knowledgeable and friendly; I am going to continue working with him throughout the course of this semester.

I highly recommend him!

Test Preparation:

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

I completed AP BC Calculus (integral calculus) and a college-level multi-variable calculus course in high school. As an undergraduate, I studied complex analysis (calculus of complex numbers) and methods for evaluating difficult integrals. My dissertation work involved calculus daily, in classes and in solving practical problems in the lab.

I participated in the National Chemistry Olympiad in 2004 and took both lab and classroom chemistry courses as an undergraduate. As an atomic physicist, I routinely dealt with physical chemistry concepts and laboratory techniques.

I have been programming in various languages for 15 years (over half of my life). In undergraduate study, I completed courses in Scheme, C, Java, Python, and Haskell, often helping my classmates with their homework. As a researcher, I had to write software every day in C++-like scripting languages, Python, and LabView and communicate my work (algorithms, data structures, conventions) to my labmates.

As an undergraduate, I completed a year-long course in complex analysis and both ordinary and partial differential equations, including material on numerical solution algorithms. As a graduate student in physics, differential equations were my bread-and-butter (e.g., the SchrÃ¶dinger equation is a differential equation that is fundamental to the field of quantum optics). Several courses and my research work heavily utilized differential equations. My PhD thesis contains significant exposition concerning various differential equations.

I took courses on linear algebra (the basics, as well as more advanced topics like different kinds of vector spaces and group theory) as an undergraduate. In graduate school, I studied a great deal of quantum mechanics, where matrix algebra is crucial for expressing the physics to make problems tractable (i.e., I had to work with matrices almost every day).

I took a formal course on Python as an undergraduate, in which I used genetic algorithms to generate certain kinds of Turing machines and created one-dimensional cellular automata that were displayed in a Tcl/Tk GUI, among other small projects. Since then, I have used Python for data analysis, various scripting tasks, and personal projects involving web-scraping and interfacing with SQL databases.
