Elementary (K-6th)

I've been tutoring K-6th grade age children for nearly a decade now, and have taught at two different private schools in Colorado for four years, which was a terrific learning experience for me as an early educator due to the highly diverse demographics of that part of the Country. As a seasoned private tutor, I've been developing lessons in Language, Arts, Math, Science & Social Studies that keep my students engaged through fun, interactive, project-based activities, such as science projects, games, and multimedia activities, and that correlate to State-standards. Furthermore, through my years of experience tutoring and teaching K-6th graders, I've had the privilege to be well-trained on different practical and philosophical approaches to early education such as Montessori, Reggio-Emilia, and Brain-Based Learning.

Nutrition,

Nutrition

Nutrition plays a crucial role in maintaining the overall health of an individual. Biological systems require various nutrients for various functions, and nutritional imbalance can lead to diseased conditions. Nutrition physiology deals with the study of nutrients and their role in growth, health, and disease of a person. The study includes food consumption, absorption, and metabolism. I became interested in nutrition and eating healthy at a very early age - my early teens - and little did I know those first articles I read would start me on a path of discovery and pursuit of an ever-evolving body of knowledge. In hindsight, it was back then that my interest in science and research started to manifest. Later in life, becoming a Molecular and Cell Biologist would prove to be no short of befitting my inquisitive mind as it's allowed me to fully understand the physiology of nutrition at the molecular and cellular level. In fact, many of my students are nutritionists and dietitians in search of a deeper understanding of how the human body metabolizes food, the Epigenetics behind eating, and even how some metabolic pathways work at the molecular level (including which specific enzymes, signaling molecules and receptors may be involved). I'm passionate about the subject, and look forward to sharing my knowledge with you.

AFOQT

I usually approach preparing my students for the AFOQT in a very similar fashion as I approach preparing students to take other multi-subject exams: by showing them how to tackle typical practice problems in a simple and time-efficient way. For many years now, this has proven to be a very effective approach. All of my students who followed my tutorials and guidance passed their exams, and so can you!

Finding Joseph has been a miracle. He was able to assess my child's academic weaknesses and throughly instruct with patience. His mindfulness and teaching strategies are highly effective.

Erin, 10 lessons with Joseph

Motivating and Inspiring Tutor!

Before our son's tutoring began, he was not the least motivated to improve his reading comprehension skills. Now, after three months with Joe, not only has our son improved but he also looks forward to his tutoring sessions now. We cannot thank Joe enough!

David, 40 lessons with Joseph

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

My son's tutoring session with my son went very well. He was very helpful and my son was able to get an extra hour with him to help prepare for his test. We will definitely use his service again.

Dianne, 1 lesson with Joseph

Very Knowledgeable Teacher

Joe has overall helped me improve my reading and writing skills in the short period we had together. He is very knowledgeable and does really well on explaining certain areas in which you struggle on. I am looking forward to more lessons with Joe.

Christian, 8 lessons with Joseph

Very knowledgeable & personable

My son struggled through math all year. After 2 sessions, he feels like he’s really catching on. Joe can break it down so he can understand it. My son actually looks forward to his sessions!
