Learn Calculus from an Actuary!
If you're looking for a mathematician as a math tutor, I'm your guy. Although I have tutored most branches of mathematics, my focus is now Calculus and Pre-Calculus, both at the high school and college level. There is significant student demand for a qualified calculus tutor, especially with respect to online courses. However, I will also be tutoring Algebra 1 and Pre-Algebra during the summer of 2017.
I come equipped with a BS in Mathematics from Marshall University (cum laude). I have...

Joe is a very patient tutor that helps clarify lessons a TON. He explains things differently which helps to make the lessons easier as well as homework problems. I retook Calc 1 and used Joe to help me with lessons and Iv'e already noticed a difference in my grades!

Good teacher
My son was able to go from a D in PreCalc to a 96% in his final exam. I wish we'd found Joe sooner because that 96% helped his grade up to only a C. I'm now having Joe tutor my son in AB Calculus to get a jump start on what my son is taking next year. I recommend him.

Great Tutor!
Joe has worked with both of our daughters and he did a great job! Both girls were able to accomplish their goals after working with Joe.

Great session
My son came home from his first session with Joe and felt that his time was well spent and that the session was productive. He is not giving me a hard time about future sessions and in fact, sees the benefit and thinks that they will be helpful.

What A Wonderful AP Calculus Tutor
Joe is a wonderful tutor who happily goes the extra mile to help his students. At the beginning of the year, my daughter was having trouble understanding her AP Calculus class. Within a month of tutoring, she had brought her C/D up to a B, and by the end of the year she received an A as her final grade and a 5 on the AP Calculus test. There were several times when Joe changed his schedule, so that he could help her study for a test the next day. You would be hard pressed to find a more dedicated tutor than Joe.

Great Tutor for Advanced Math Course
Joe has been an excellent tutor for my son for AP Calculus. He was patient and helped my son get through the course even though there were some initial hiccups with him being transferred from another school. Joe was flexible and tried his best always to accommodate to our schedule. I will recommend him without any reservation to anybody looking for an advanced level math tutor.

Excellent experience.
July 2013 update: My son has now completed a full semester of twice-weekly tutoring sessions with Joe. He achieved an A- on his final exam in honors pre-calculus. There is no question that the personal attention and high expectations, and good communication with me about my son's level of progress and commitment, made the difference. My son will be meeting with Joe over the summer to get ready for AP Calculus and with a tutor who truly cares about our child's progress, we are more than confident about the future. Thank you, Joe! January 2013: My son has had four sessions with Joe so far, and each time he has reported that his understanding of the material has improved. Joe conveys his enjoyment of the subject and my son feels that Joe enjoys working with him and really believes in him and wants him to be successful. Joe is encouraging. This positive relationship alleviates some of the anxiety that can come with working on a subject that presents challenges. As if all of that were not enough, Joe knows the stuff, cold, without hesitation, and can explain it in more than one way. When we are talking trigonometry, that's important!!

Dedicated Tutor
Joe goes above and beyond and is very committed to his students. He has called me on several occasions, outside of tutoring time with my son. He has stayed late when it was required for my son to master the content before a test. His concern for the student's well being goes beyond the topic they are covering for the day and extends to helping students meet their overall goals. His input is insightful and valuable. One of the great things about Joe is that when the problems are especially hard, he says so. This let's his students know the he understands what they are going through and he will be there to help them through the tough stuff.

Joe F. has improved my daughter's pre-calc/trig grade by a letter grade!
My daughter has been tutored by Joe F. for the last 3 months. She has always been a good math student however found that she needed additional explanation and more one-on-one support than she was receiving from her teacher. Subsequently her attitude about math and her grade was suffering. Joe F. has really turned around both her attitude and performance. My daughter has appreciated how thoroughly Joe has explained material and especially new concepts. He provides extra problems for them to go through together and then has her independently solve problems to ensure that she grasps the concepts and applies them correctly. My daughter now confidently goes into her quizzes and tests which has resulted in improving her grade by a letter grade. Another reason for her success is that she likes Joe and how he approaches tutoring. I highly recommend Joe!

Great, enthusiastic tutor; communicates promptly via text messages/email
My daughter loves learning with this tutor and has turned her grades around. He is pleasant, energetic and professional. He clearly loves what he is doing. He is always punctual and will extend the time if my daughter needs it. I am so glad I found Joe.
