About Joseph

I'm Joseph, a graduate from the University of Florida with a degree in Accounting with minor concentrations in Statistics and Actuarial Science. I have passed four actuarial exams, pursuing the career and professional certification as a long-term goal. I am a big fan of analytics and am very fond of involving myself with any mathematical, statistical, or financial topics. For the past four years I have been tutoring these topics anywhere from introductory to very advanced levels. I have worked with people of vastly diverse age, from kids in middle school to upper level college students. Most of my meetings have occurred through tutoring in a private residence or a public location; however, I have held many sessions in an online environment as well.

My tutoring approach is to explain seemingly difficult concepts in a manner which has allowed me to fundamentally understand them such that they truly seem simple compared to the first glance. Enthusiasm is key to making numerical topics exciting and interesting. One is only most successful with numbers if they develop curiosity for it, and reaching profound realizations instills confidence and considerably concise ability when time comes to perform in an exam setting. One may wonder why learning math, statistics, or financial subjects are even relevant to their life; I have realized it can be related to anything with longterm struggle: one can’t play Beethoven without learning to play the piano, one cannot do skate tricks without learning to ride a skateboard, etc. We use math to solve problems, but you cannot convey problems beyond words if you don't know how to model them on paper. I find purpose in numbers. The destination is not important; the road that leads you there is.
