Besides teaching, my other interests include surfing, hiking, biking, movies, music, poetry, art, and traveling.
Thanks for your interest. I look forward to working with 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. 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.

Test Preparation

AFOQT,

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!

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, 5 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!

Marile, 6 lessons with Joseph

Awesome tutor!

He gave me confidence and was easy to work with. Very understanding and will approach a problem in as many different ways as it takes in order for you to understand the solution.

Hunter, 2 lessons with Joseph

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

First meeting between Joseph and my freshman for bio/algebra "support" - definitely helpful - next session is already scheduled. Looking forward to LOTS of progress.

Casey, 2 lessons with Joseph

Great teacher!

I had a difficult time to make my son study with tutor. It gard to tell why he didnt want to but i knew that it would help him to prepare for his test. After we set up meeting with Joseph and right before leaving our house my son changed his mind. I was very dusappointed and had to call Joseph to cancel the meeting. I tryed to talk to my son and finally he aggreed on meeting Joseph. I immediately called Joseph back hopping he will be able to meet us. Even though the meeting was canseled abd he left ,he turned around and came back. I appriciate that he understand what challenges we all can face. It is very easy to communicat with Joseph and my son seems likes to study with him. I know Joseph does his best not only teaching but also motivating. I am glad we found him!

Elena, 9 lessons with Joseph

Great impression!

Joseph made a strong impression on my 9 yr old son right away. He is professional and positive. He is respectful and sincere in his conversation and instruction, and my son responded to that immediately. Joseph is well-organized and efficient. My son is motivated to continue working with him and is gaining interest and confidence in his spelling abilities. Mahalo Joseph!
