About Joaquin


Bio

A little bit about me:
I started tutoring in the spring of '19, after successfully studying for and scoring 1510 on the SAT. When word of my score got around, everyone wanted to know how I hacked the test. After helping my friends and solidifying my methods, I decided to start tutoring, so that I could spread this knowledge as far and wide as possible. I've tutored all kinds of students over the last year and a half, mostly in mathematics and SAT prep.

I also discovered my love for college...

I started tutoring in the spring of '19, after successfully studying for and scoring 1510 on the SAT. When word of my score got around, everyone wanted to know how I hacked the test. After helping my friends and solidifying my methods, I decided to start tutoring, so that I could spread this knowledge as far and wide as possible. I've tutored all kinds of students over the last year and a half, mostly in mathematics and SAT prep.

I also discovered my love for college essay writing after applying to and gaining admission into numerous colleges and universities, including Princeton (where I chose to attend), Yale, Columbia, Brown, Dartmouth, Cornell, UPenn, Duke, Williams College, Northwestern, Umichigan, and Oxford. Word of these conquests spread around my school and I now get the satisfaction of helping people with their applications. Through Wyzant, I hope to help as many people as possible achieve their college dreams.

When not tutoring math and test prep or editing people's college essays, I can most likely be found reading books about history or philosophy, investing in Cryptocurrency, or working on my writing. I am very passionate about tutoring. If you want my help, just shoot me a message and I'll respond as soon as possible.

Patient, Intuitive and incredibly intelligent

Joaquin is helping our son with 5th grade Math. We love the way he motivates Josh to think critically and discover different ways to solve problems. He is consistent and encouraging, and we are so glad we chose him to tutor our son.
