About Joseph


Bio

I have worked as a teacher for several years.
I have taught Psychology and Humanities at the college level and History and English at the high school level.

I have wide experience in tutoring as well. I have successfully tutored students who were preparing to take the SAT and the GRE exams. Our preparation for these exams consisted of both the verbal and mathematical components. I have also tutored students for the GED exam, and over 90% of them went on to receive their GED’s.

I have worked as a teacher for several years.
I have taught Psychology and Humanities at the college level and History and English at the high school level.

I have wide experience in tutoring as well. I have successfully tutored students who were preparing to take the SAT and the GRE exams. Our preparation for these exams consisted of both the verbal and mathematical components. I have also tutored students for the GED exam, and over 90% of them went on to receive their GED’s.

On occasion, parents have approached me and asked me to teach their child to read. I have done this using a system that I devised which employs color-coding for the letters of the alphabet. They too became quick and efficient readers.

My approach to teaching and tutoring is student-centered. I take the student where he (she) is at, and react to what he tells me, rather than superimposing information on him. I live near a public library and this has proven suitable for tutoring sessions.

Learning does not have to be a drudgery. It can be fun and rewarding, given the right approach.

I have had a great deal of success tutoring elementary math. I am very patient and teach by paradigm, so that even if the student doesn't grasp mathematics concepts, s/he will be able to work out problems by following a model problem, similar or identical to the one being worked on.

I have taught several World Religions courses at the college level. In addition to Philosophy and Ethics, I concentrated mainly in Religions of the World and Comparative Religions. I have taught more than 25 credit hours of religion. These courses included Buddhism and Hinduism, as well as the major Western monotheistic religions. I have previously been a seminarian at the St. Bonaventure School of Theology. This required me to publish scholarly articles in the areas of theology and hermeneutics and required me to thoroughly study the Christian scripture.
