About Joshua

I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Biological Science from Florida State University, with a specialty in Genetics and Biochemistry. For the last two years I have taught Biology lab classes at Florida State University, while having my performance as an instructor constantly evaluated by experts in the field of education.

I have also taught a Freshman level course at FSU focused on helping incoming students develop effective studying techniques, note-taking skills, and other various skills to help them reach their highest potential academically. I hope to use my extensive background in math and science to help my students strive both academically and personally.

I received my Bachelor's degree in Biological Science from Florida State University, where I graduated in the top 5% of my class. For the past two years I have taught a Biology Lab at FSU, where my students have consistently shown a significant improvement academically throughout the semester.

I have a very flexible schedule and I am available to tutor all days, except Fridays, from 12 P.M. to 9 P.M. and anytime on the weekends. I can travel to the student's home or agree to meet them at a predetermined location (e.g. the library). I also offer online tutoring.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve your academic goals!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Biology

I earned a Bachelor's degree in Biological Science from FSU, where I graduated in the top 5% of my class. Also, I am currently teaching three Biology Labs at FSU.

Genetics

I worked as a research assistant for Dr. Karen McGinnis' genetics lab at Florida State University for over a year. I have a lot of hands-on experience in both general genetics and epigenetics. While working for Dr. McGinnis I had to give weekly progress reports and monthly presentations of my research. Prior to conducting research for Dr. McGinnis, I was a student in her general genetics class where I had a final grade of above 100%. My performance in her class was a major reason why I was invited to conduct research with her.

Study Skills

While enrolled at Florida State University, I was chosen through a rigorous application process to be a Freshman Interest Group (FIG) Leader. As a FIG leader I was in charge of instructing 24 Pre-Med Freshman students. The main goal of the course was to provide my students with the necessary tools they needed to strive in a college environment. A major emphasis of the class was how to develop effective study skills. I gave numerous lessons on note-taking, test preparation, and other various study skills. In preparation for becoming a FIG leader I was enrolled in a summer long training course, where I learned all of these techniques among many others. I was also educated and supervised by the Dean of Undergraduate Studies at Florida State University on these topics.

Great explanations and study advice

After my daughter's first biology tutoring session with Joshua, she shared that he did a great job making a complex topic easier to understand. He quizzed her at the end of their session to make sure she grasped the concepts and gave her a study plan to use before their next session. He definitely helped build her morale getting ready for her next exam!
