About Joseph

Greetings all, My name is Joseph. I am a very driven and ambitious individual. I graduated high school early at the age of 17, beginning college the very same year. During my undergraduate years I was an active member in three honors societies, and I maintained a high GPA, allowing me to remain on the Dean's list for ten consecutive semesters. I graduated with a B.A. at the top of my class receiving the distinction of Cum Laude. After graduating in 2011, I entered the M.A program also receiving the distinction of Suma Cum Laude upon graduation. I come from a very diverse background with family around the world. I am fortunate that my travels have afforded me opportunities to engage with people from all walks of life. Most significantly I have truly come to value the importance of education. In traveling I have met and witnessed individuals living in dire circumstances where the basic necessitates of life such a clean drinking water and shelter, are completely absent. For many education has not only become a secondary concern, but even a luxury they will never be able experience. It is because of this daunting realization that I value the education I have acquired, and it is my mission to help younger geneneration in our country and unltmately abroad to be able to appreciate the benefits education has to offer, not only in changing one's circumstances, but the power and ability to transform the world in which we live.

In working/teaching students for the past four years in various academic subjects, I possess the ability to help individuals to develop their own comfortability in reading, writing, and other skills essential to education. Most of my approach and advice comes directly from my own experience as a student, but in teaching I have also learned new and innovative approaches such as visual aids, and contemporary examples to help students retain any lesson. I have worked with the Educational Opportunity program at California State University of Northridge, for four years. The program deals with students who are first generation college students, in preparing them academically for the rigors of collegiate level writing, and also the overall experience at a university. I worked as the Lead Academic Mentor primarily for university level writing, grading and assigning essays, while also mentoring students on a personal level. I have worked with thousands of students over the years, some who come from neighborhoods where college is a distant and even unrealistic dream. I have mentored and tutored students who have doubted their writing skills, and who questioned their capabilities altogether. Over the years I have acquired both the sensitivity to work with students from various backgrounds and the expertise to assist them in strengthening their core skills such as reading comprehension and essay writing. Political Science is the field in which I received both my Bachelor's and Master's degree. In addition to having a strong command both orally and written, of the English language, Political Science has also given me considerable proficiency and appreciation of world history (including the subcategories of American,European, and African history) as well as cultural geography.

I look forward to assisting any student who needs help in any of the subjects aforementioned. In my experience, my goal in mentoring, or teaching has always been to make sure that the student is understood, and also helping student develop their own skills to refine their abilities in writing, reading, and test taking. Remember sky is the limit, and if you can conceive it, you can certainly achieve it!!

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.

Political Science

Political Science is the field in which I received both my bachelor's and master's degree. My particular focus is in International Relations and Comparative Politics. Both subjects require a sophisticated and absolute understanding of the complexities at both the national and international levels of government. The core of this understanding is an appreciation and knowledge of world history and geography. In all, Political Science has really allowed me to have an encompassing view of the dynamics of our ever changing world.

Very Patient — Joseph is extremely patient and helped me with my political science course. I am an intentional student so English isn't my first language, but with Joseph's help I was able to get very good grades in my class. I would definitely work with him more. ...
