I'm Josh! I am a recent college graduate with a Bachelor's degree in Systems Engineering, and a passion for enriching the learning experience of any and all students.

I'm Josh! I am a recent college graduate with a Bachelor's degree in Systems Engineering, and a passion for enriching the learning experience of any and all students. Through my entire academic career, I have found that supplementing in-class instruction with engaging and hands-on material outside of the classroom is the most effective way for a student to grasp material and master it.

I initially consult students on the ways that they have already identified as enjoyable ways for them to learn, and I am flexible in my lesson plans so that the individual needs of any student can be met. It is this much more personalized style of teaching that gives students the confidence to succeed and the humility to ask questions that they would not be comfortable asking in a traditional classroom setting.

I have 5 years of experience tutoring students in Algebra 2 as a tutor, and began tutoring students in after school programs in high school in Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, Trigonometry and Precalculus. In college I tutored students in Calculus and Statistics and became much more methodical in my tutoring approach. I offer all students a comfortable learning environment that is both low pressure and high reward, mixing the knowledge that I have mastered with a patient teaching style.

Please feel free to contact me with any additional questions that you may have or to schedule you first lesson! I am here to boost the confidence and grades of any and all students.

Statistics

Statistics

I have tutored college-level statistics for over a year in an academic setting, and have a degree that puts a special emphasis on Probability and Statistics. I worked my entire senior year on running statistical analysis on IRB and HIPAA protected data, so I know both the theory and application of statistical methods that are taught in the classroom setting.

Elementary Education

Elementary Math

Elementary Math

I have worked in classrooms with students K-6 on mathematics and sciences, with specific focus on elementary pre-algebra. I focus on making students feel as comfortable and as confident as possible in learning, as it is often classrooms lack in identifying students individual learning needs. I am patient and have lesson plans that can make the basics of mathematics click easily for young students.

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I am a Systems Engineer with 2 years experience tutoring students in Algebra 1, and 5+ years experience tutoring students in mathematics from the elementary level to linear algebra. In my own academic career I have taken every level of mathematics up to Linear Algebra, giving me insight into some of the shortcomings of classrooms and ideas for how to enrich the learning experience of students on a much more personal level. I have lesson plans that I have prepared and tweaked over the years so that the lessons can be adapted for the differing paces and starting points in teachers' syllabi.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

I have tutored in Algebra 2 specifically for over 4 years, with most of my experience coming from tutoring students at the high school level. I have developed lesson plans that accommodate various classroom teaching styles and paces, with the primary focus of each lesson being student comfort and grasping of the material. I also provide students with working sets that they can practice outside of our tutoring sessions, so that they can approach mastery of topics before even having them presented in the classroom.
Calculus,

Calculus

I have 2 years experience tutoring in Calculus (2017-2019), and have developed lessons plans that are adaptable to the varying classroom paces student's find themselves in. I have tutored students as young as 10th grade in Calculus and as old a college seniors. I look forward to enriching Calculus student's learning experience!
Geometry,

Geometry

I have tutored in geometry for over 3 years with students individually at both the high school and middle school levels, and have developed lesson plans that are adaptable to differing classroom paces and starting points. I also have experience tutoring students in geometry in a classroom setting for 1 year through an academic program at the University of Virginia.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

I have tutored mathematics from the elementary level to graduate level college courses for over 5 years, and have experience tutoring in Prealgebra specifically for 3 years. I have lesson plans developed that boost the confidence and understanding of students, so that they can be fully prepared when they transition into Algebra. I offer a personalized approach, focusing on the student's learning needs, so that when they are presented material in the classroom they have already been familiarized with the topics.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

I have 3 years of experience tutoring students in Precalculus, and have developed lesson plans that accommodate any classroom curriculum. I put special emphasis on the students approaching mastery of Trigonometry along with their learning in Precalculus, as it will make their academic endeavors that much easier. I prepare students for the next level (Calculus), by giving them confidence through repetition!
SAT Math,

SAT Math

I have three years of experience tutoring the Math portion of the SAT, and scored perfect on the Math portion myself! My approach is combining lesson plans for the various topics included on the exam (Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry), while simultaneously working through practice problems with students. This way students can have a solid basis for any question that appears, along with recognition of commonly asked questions!
