About Josh

I have had extensive experience mentoring high school and college students for over four years. I hold a graduate degree in civil engineering from a top five civil engineering school in the world. I also have a minor in Spanish from the University of Texas at Austin. As a private tutor, I really pride myself on being prepared ahead of time for what the student needs help with for that particular tutoring session. I like to use useful real-world examples that provide a helpful context for the material that is being covered.

I specialize in tutoring math, physics and Spanish from high school up through undergraduate underclassmen classes. I have been through many courses in math, physics and Spanish because of graduate school and studying abroad in Mexico, so I have a unique perspective of how people learn in these subjects. This enables me to advantageously relate to my students and also to successfully navigate common pitfalls that students run into. In my undergraduate studies, I excelled in my engineering classes which was heavily math and physics based earning university honors (recognition for good grades) for multiple semesters. In graduate school, my engineering classes required an even higher level of math. I excelled in both undergraduate and graduate school maintaining my grade point average above 3.0.

I am flexible on my hours, and willing to work with the student to find the best time for tutoring. I live in Normal and am willing to drive to meet the student at any location within the Bloomington-Normal area. Feel free to contact me anytime to work out a tutoring session.

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.

Algebra 1

I took a lot of college engineering courses that require a thorough knowledge of Algebra. In graduate school, I had to use Algebra on a weekly basis. I have also tutored physics for one semester so I have tutoring experience.

Elementary Math

I have an undergraduate and graduate degree in engineering and now I am working as an engineer. I have a working knowledge of math and I use elementary math every day. I have also tutored for one semester before so I have experience tutoring.

Geometry

I have used geometry extensively in undergraduate and graduate school for engineering classes. I am currently working as an engineer and I use geometry almost every day. I also have one semester of tutoring experience.

Physics

I was in honors physics in high school and I got and A in physics in college. Furthermore being in undergraduate and graduate school for engineering exposed me to higher level physics using calculus. I also tutored high school physics for one semester.

Prealgebra

I was an A student in prealgebra in middle school and I went to a private math tutor for prealgebra when I was in elementary and middle school. Now working as an engineer, I use prealgebra principles every day.

Spanish

I have a minor in Spanish. I studied abroad in Mexico for 1 semester taking engineering classes in Spanish. I have read the the New Testament in Spanish multiple times.
