About Joseph


Bio

My teaching experience has gone from middle school level all the way to community colleges including basic arithmetic skills, writing skills, reading skills, grammar and vocabulary, social studies --Florida History, U S History, World History and Geography--study skills, GED prep, and test taking skills. I encourage my students to ask questions and to let me know if they do not understand what they have read or something I said.

My teaching experience has gone from middle school level all the way to community colleges including basic arithmetic skills, writing skills, reading skills, grammar and vocabulary, social studies --Florida History, U S History, World History and Geography--study skills, GED prep, and test taking skills. I encourage my students to ask questions and to let me know if they do not understand what they have read or something I said.

I tell students they are in my class because they want to learn the knowledge and skills needed to achieve certain goals. I do not promise them they will learn everything there is to know about a subject, but I will teach them how to look for answers to questions they cannot readily answer and will also show them how to break what appears to be an insurmountable obstacle into smaller tasks that will be easier to solve, and these solutions will lead to that solution they thought unconquerable.

Many students have problems with learning because they have been shown either by words or actions they have learning problems. I like to tell them the word "education" comes from a Latin word meaning to draw or pull out; so, instead of me drilling a hole in their head and pouring knowledge into them, I want to pull out of them the abilities that have always been there, locked up and unused.

There is nothing as satisfying as knowing I have had a hand in helping someone realize potential never before even dreamed about.
