Hi, I'm Joe.I have a Ph.D. In Classics (Latin and Greek) specializing in the History of Mathematics from Brown University (Ivy League), a J.D. from the University of Virginia Law School and have completed the coursework requirements for the Ph.D. in Mathematics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
While pursuing the PhD at Brown University, I also completed the coursework requirements for the AB in Computer Science, including graduate and doctoral level coursework in database theory (SQL,C++)
I have Masters degrees in both Mathematics and Classics and I received my BA in Classical Greek and Mathematics at Queens College, CUNY, summa cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa. I was a National Merit Scholar.
I have roughly 20 years of teaching and tutoring experience, including having taught the year-long (and one-semester intensive) Introduction to Classical Greek course at Brown University. I have also taught Mathematics at the University of Illinois at Urbana, Greek and Roman Civilization at the University of Rhode Island (Providence campus), and Mathematics in the New York City public high school system.

I have worked as a programmer-analyst at Goldman Sachs in their division of regulatory compliance ( SQL, C++)

I am a licensed attorney in New York State, US District Court, Eastern District of New York; US District Court, Southern District of New York and the US Patent and Trademark Office.

“Students agreed that they developed a good foundation in the ancient Greek language by taking this course (Greek 2 - Brown University). They would recommend this highly to anyone with an interest in the Greek language, especially if Joe L. is available as an instructor” - Brown University, The Critical Review, Semester II, 1995-96 (A summary of student evaluations of instructors)

Great Help

Joseph helped my son study for his Algebra 2 test last week. He felt much more confident after two hours with Joseph! Can't wait to see the test results. Thank you Joseph for making yourself available at the last minute.

He helped me to understand SQL and how to enter the correct information. He's very patient and helps me to understand how this program works. He's been flexible with his hours and works with me to schedule around my time as well.

Latin lesson

Mr. L was extremely methodical and helped my son think and my son loved that Mr. L was able to help Jacob solve his own questions. We were looking for a tutor to build my son’s abilities and Mr. L has been able to help deliver this to my son as a freshman in high school. Mr. L is a great tutor.

Exquisite Instruction and Tutor Without Peer

This individual does an exemplary job explaining intricate concepts in a brief amount of time. I was quite impressed with both the presentation style and command of the material. The best option for many subjects.

Dan, 6 lessons with Joseph

Knowledgeable and very patient tutor

He helped me to do data analysis on Python, and even though some of the concepts I was working with were new to him, but he was able to figure out the right tool to use. I highly recommend him. Thumbs up! Thank you Joseph,
