About Josh

Hello,

My name is Josh and I work at the University of Central Florida. I have been tutoring for the last four years.

My tutoring style focuses on simplifying and explaining concepts that can be challenging in a way that is easy to understand. I try and not just tutor the subject but provide the student with test taking strategies and organizational skills so that they feel more confident in class. I truly believe that student confidence is the foundation for student success.

I began college in 2007 at Valencia Community College where I majored in chemistry and worked in their chemistry department as a lab assistant. I worked at Valencia for 4 years learning how to apply the things I was learning to the real world. After Valencia I attended UCF where I majored in Chemistry. During my time as a student at UCF, I worked as a research assistant in a polymer research lab and was also a TA for the introduction to chemistry lab. In 2012 I was brought on full-time as the Senior Lab Technician for UCF's Chemistry Department where I am still happily employed. I have now been working in the chemistry field for about 9 years and have been tutoring privately for the last 4 years.

I also have experience tutoring AP Chemistry and working with high school level students. These students can require a different approach which I feel is very important

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Chemistry

My name is Josh and I work at the University of Central Florida. I have been tutoring privately for 4 years.

While I currently work in the UCF Chemistry Department, I began college in 2007 at Valencia Community College where I majored in chemistry and worked in the chemistry department as a lab assistant. I worked at Valencia for four years learning how to apply the things I was learning to the real world. After Valencia, I attended UCF where I majored in Chemistry. During my time as a student at UCF, I worked as a research assistant in a polymer research lab and was also a TA for the introduction to chemistry lab. In 2012 I was brought on as the Senior Lab Technician for UCF's Chemistry Department where I remain today. I have now been working in the chemistry field for about nine years and have been tutoring privately for the last four years.

Organic Chemistry

I attended the University of Central Florida and have a degree in Chemistry. While as a student at UCF I worked in a organic chemistry research lab where I conducted investigative experiments into many types of organic synthesis, including Swern Oxidation, Diels-Alder Reactions, Suzuki Coupling, and many types of free radical methods of polymer prep. I now work at UCF overseeing the organic chemistry teaching labs as the chemistry departments senior laboratory technician.
