About Joe

I have been a high school math teacher at Loyola Academy in Wilmette and at Carmel Catholic HS in Mundelein. I was at Loyola for 5 years and at Carmel Catholic for 11 (up to 2013). In between, I was an adjunct faculty member at Loyola University Chicago and Northeastern Illinois University, where I taught mostly algebra-related courses. I have also tutored math throughout my college and post-college years.

I really enjoy working with students 1-1, as it is much easier to tailor instruction to an individual's needs. Many times students are just unfamiliar with and lack confidence in tackling new material, especially when it's math. Having someone to gently guide you through problem solving often results in substantial and rapid improvement.

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.

ACT Math

In addition to being a high school math teacher, I have tutored students for the ACT privately since my college days.

Algebra 1

My math teaching career has involved everything from prealgebra up through precalculus.

Algebra 2

I have both taught algebra 2 at the high school level and tutored it privately since college.

Geometry

Geometry is one of the subjects that I taught nearly every year of the 16 years that I taught high school math.

Prealgebra

I have tutored students privately in both middle school and high school. I have also been a high school math teacher, where I have taught algebra courses many times.

Precalculus

In addition to having taught precalculus at the high school level, I have tutored both it and calculus extensively.

SAT Math

The SAT has been a big part of my tutoring career, as many students I have worked with have wanted help taking this particular test and/or improving their scores. I am very familiar with the kind of questions that are asked on the math portion of the SAT.

Trigonometry

I have taught trigonometry at the high school level. It has also been a subject that I have tutored extensively. For many students, this is their first exposure to functions such as sine, cosine, and tangent. Because of this, it has been a course with high tutoring demand for me.

Knowledgeable and patient — Joe was prompt and focused. He worked out the problems from geomeyry test and explained why and what were the steps/theorems. Then had my son work through problems. My son felt that he better understood and prepared to take the chapter tests. We will be calling to set an appointment again. ...
