About Joseph


Bio

Tutoring is a great fit for me. I have 12 years of teaching and tutoring experience. I’m patient, mature, consistent, reliable and eager to help students overcome their academic difficulties and succeed in the classroom and on exams.

I like to help students tackle homework and and test preparation by means of actual problem-solving rather than theory. In addition to homework, I like to use practice exercises and test simulations to get students used to working under time pressure, which...

Tutoring is a great fit for me. I have 12 years of teaching and tutoring experience. I’m patient, mature, consistent, reliable and eager to help students overcome their academic difficulties and succeed in the classroom and on exams.

I like to help students tackle homework and and test preparation by means of actual problem-solving rather than theory. In addition to homework, I like to use practice exercises and test simulations to get students used to working under time pressure, which reflects the reality of school and test environments today.

I am eligible for Florida certification in Mathematics (grades 6-12), having passed the both the general teaching and subject tests in Mathematics for the state of Florida. I have tutored students in Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry and Trigonometry; and both the verbal and math parts of the SAT.

If you or your child are having problems with high school math, don't hesitate to contact me to schedule a lesson.

Pre-Calculus

Very knowledgeable, very patient. Tech savvy so there were no issues using the white board during the session. He taught the way I like, he will solve the problem and explains as he goes and once it’s solved he will explain why/how we reached the answer. I recommend Joe to anyone young or old

Adonnay, 1 lesson with Joseph

Very accommodating and effective tutor

Joseph helped my son to review Algebra 1 concepts for his final exam. He arranged a tutoring appointment at the last minute. After Joseph's tutoring my son did well on his exam and received an award for achieving the highest exam score in his class.

Miwako, 1 lesson with Joseph

First lesson and was punctual and professional.

Knowledgeable and made my daughter feel comfortable. Worked on Algebra covering some tough concepts but hung in there for 2 hours in one sitting covering the material.

Sandra, 1 lesson with Joseph

Very helpful and patient tutor

This was my sons first session with Joseph. He needed to review for his first pre-calculas test. Joseph walked him through some practice problems and gave him some practical test strategies. He found it very helpful and we will definitely use Joseph again.

Hope, 1 lesson with Joseph

Patient and knowledgeable

He tutors my daughter in College Pre-Calculus and she loves him because he treats her as a person and not just another number. He is a 10 out 10…definitely recommend!

Lauryn, 13 lessons with Joseph

The best math tutor I've ever had.

Joseph goes above and beyond with every session, and takes the time to not only explain concepts to you, but makes sure you understand how to apply them as well. He is extremely patient and makes every second of the session count. Even when I'm having an issue or make a mistake, Joseph assures me that it is alright and walks me through my error so I can see where exactly I went wrong. He is an excellent tutor!

Konstandinos, 22 lessons with Joseph

Great Tutoring Experience!

Joe is a great tutor! Extremely patient and knowledgeable. He's honest about anything he is unsure of. I already feel much more confident in my math courses compared to the beginning of the semester. I hope to continue sessions next semester as well. Thanks, Joe!

Sarah, 7 lessons with Joseph

Helpful and Patient tutor

Joseph has helped my son with his Algebra I homework. Whenever my son does not understand any concepts from his school work that week he shows them to Joseph and he helps him understand it better. He is very helpful and patient. We recommend him!

Lyn, 10 lessons with Joseph

Excellent Spanish tutor helped my son before his exam.

Joseph is an amazing Spanish tutor. My son is in AP Spanish IV and needed some help studying for an exam. Joseph helped review conjugation of verbs in the present perfect and present perfect subjunctives as well giving some exercises and doing practice with him. My son feels very confident today going in to take his test. Thanks to Joseph he feels very prepared. Joesph is so knowledgeable and patient. Highly recommended!
