About Joseph

Hello,

My name is Joseph. I'm a scientist, lifelong learner, and seasoned educator with 10+ yrs of experience helping students of all ages succeed in Language, Math, and Science courses. As a professional educator, my versatility, patience, and passion for education are some of the attributes I'm known for. I also have years of documented experience teaching in a classroom setting.

I usually prepare sessions based on my student's needs and goals, current grade, degree of complexity of the subject matter, and students' familiarity with such so it's important that I gather such information prior to starting lessons. Teaching others something or merely conveying an idea or concept, and doing it well, is something that I'm passionate about, and aspire to.

***WINNER OF THE MYRLE CLARK AWARD IN CREATIVE WRITING***

Thanks for your interest. I look forward to working with you.

Best,

Joseph.

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.

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!

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 because many of the children were also Spanish-speaking, and very often, from different cultures.
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 educated, and well-trained on different practical and philosophical approaches to early education such as Montessori, Reggio-Emilia, and Brain-Based Learning.

Grammar

I've been tutoring, and helping students improve their writing & grammar for the last four years, including creative writing and different types of academic papers.

Patient and detail oriented tutor. — Joseph is currently tutoring me in Chemistry and Precalculus. He is very patient and has great attention to detail when explaining concepts. He won't let you move on to the next problem until he is sure you understand the ins and outs of the one before it. He also makes an effort to offer several different explanations for a single concept in order to appeal to your individual understanding and ab ...
