I am a research scientist with 8 years of experience teaching biochemistry, genetics, cell and molecular biology both to undergraduates and graduate students.

While an undergraduate studying at the University of Florida, I received my training in protein production and purification for rational drug design and drug discovery from the only national cancer institute in the state of Florida, the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Complex. From a novice, I learned how to genetically engineer, produce and purify cancer targets both for x-ray crystallography for structure determination, as well as biophysical assay for characterization. Equally important, I discovered a love for the lab and teaching science!

Fortunately, my university afforded me myriad of opportunities to apply my passions immediately! The Emerging Pathogens Institute hired me as a staff scientist while I finished my undergraduate degree just as soon as I finished my training. This allowed me to continue practicing and developing my skills further as a scientist while studying my greatest interest: infectious diseases.

However, working as a staff scientist also proved as an opening for me to continue developing my other love: teaching others. I supervised and trained three undergraduates in my lab each semester. Under my mentoring, two of my students went onto medical school, and the other into research science. I enjoy passing my knowledge and skills to others, while encouraging them to expand on what we learned, as well as experiment and discover for themselves.

Meanwhile, I also began teaching through other departments at the university. For example, I taught biochemistry to undergraduates as a Supplemental Instructor. I enjoyed experimenting with different teaching techniques and finding the ways in which to reach my students best. Additionally, I taught research design and methodology via the Microbiology Department. In this role, I was responsible for designing, developing and teaching the entirety of the curriculum for this course

I am an experienced researcher in the lab, and tutor in one-on-one sessions. I've worked in several labs at both the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute and the University of Florida. My research focused on biochemistry principles and techniques. For example, I worked in rational drug design and drug discovery at Moffitt. My role was protein production and purification using fast protein liquid chromatography (FPLC) for x-ray crystallography and biophysical assay. I used many of the same techniques in two of my other labs at The UF Emerging Pathogens Institute and UF McKnight Brain Institute.  I've taught biochemistry to undergraduates and graduate students through the University of Florida Department of Medicine, Department of Molecular Biology & Biochemistry and the Microbiology Department. Additionally, I've tutored over 100 students in one-on-one sessions for nearly 2,000 hours for classes such as biology, chemistry, organic chemistry, biochemistry, genetics, physics, cell and molecular biology and statistics. I draw on years of experience in research to provide real world examples of textbook principles.

Very helpful with college chem!

My college freshman son fell a bit behind in his general chemistry class. After a few lessons with Joesph he got caught up and was ready to tackle his final exam. My son said that Joseph was patient and really good at explaining things. Thank you, Joseph!

Carrie, 3 lessons with Joseph

Extremely helpful

Great first session! Joseph was extremely detail oriented, patient, and specific with his explanations, and it was clear that he really wanted me to understand the material.

Kerry, 1 lesson with Joseph

awesome educator!

Joseph helped me with complicated chemistry assignments and he did a wonderful job by teaching me and breaking down everything for me to understand. I highly recommend him and definitely will use his help again.

Bardia, 4 lessons with Joseph

thoroughly taught about everything I was confused with

Great explanations and super understanding! Has cooperative characteristics. I desperately needed a tutor for my thermochemistry test (for ap chemistry) and he knew how to explain everything just perfectly. His teaching tactics are great if you’re confused about the overall concepts of topics. I was confused about all the concepts and he nailed it with the explanations!

Andia, 1 lesson with Joseph

Great and Thorough Explanations

Biology 1301 - Joseph has helped me improve my grade by explaining and demonstrating biology's scientific processes, particularly at the molecular level. Thanks, Joseph!

Gina, 4 lessons with Joseph

The best tutor!

Joseph is the true MVP. He’s one of the best tutors I’ve ever had. If you are taking biochemistry Joseph will make it understandable.

Daniel, 38 lessons with Joseph

Amazing tutor!

Joseph does a great job at explaining the complex topic of biochemistry, and communicates them in laymen's terms that is easier to understand. He comes extremely prepared to each session with all work done before, which makes the sessions very efficient. I have done well with the assignments he has reviewed with me, and I look forward to using him for additional work in this class.

Kirsten, 3 lessons with Joseph

Incredible Tutor!

Did a fantastic job helping me prepare for an exam. In one session I went from nervous to completely confident! Has a great teaching style and explains content in a way that is both interesting and easy to understand. Highly Recommend!

Max, 6 lessons with Joseph

Extremely patient and knowledgeable tutor w/ a great personality!

I hired Joseph based on his bio and overall expertise, but I had to make sure we're a good fir for one another. I messaged him to let him know about my background being in marketing and not life science related, and that I needed a tutor with his realm of expertise for this reason. He was patient, asked all of the right questions, and created/tailored a plan which specifically met my needs. He's a great tutor not just on paper, but he takes his time and stops to ask if you're 'getting it' along the way.

Sandis , 1 lesson with Joseph

Great approach and commitment!

Joseph was very open to anything I wanted to say about the lesson concerning my daughter. I watched the recorded lesson and I like how he asked where she was comfortable in each step of each problem so he knew how to begin each step. He was very nice and she actually said he was the best so far!
