About Joe

Dear Potential Students,

I am an undergraduate student at IU, studying foreign languages and Business. I have always excelled in my classes, so I know what it takes to succeed at school and learning. I love helping others especially through tutoring. There are few more rewarding things in teaching than being able to see the real impact that you have when you help someone learn. You get to experience the moment when the light switch flickers as your student begins to grasp a difficult concept and become proud with themselves when they realize they are understanding.

I also have experience in teaching others. The mistakes that I made and learned from are still fresh in my mind, so I will be able to share my experiences with others so that they can progress through their education even faster. I currently teach English to a Turkish adult, I have taught 2nd-5th graders at the Latino Community Center in Bloomington, and I have tutored peers my age at the Asian cultural center on IU's campus. Every experience is an opportunity to not only teach another but to also bond with and learn from my students, as they often teach me ways to improve my tutoring, random facts, etc. I look forward to working with you and taking part in a learning exchange.

Sincerely,
Joe

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.

I have completed several college math classes. I went as far as calculus. I have always excelled and received high grades in math.

Drawing

I have taken several art classes throughout my education. I am able to do portraits, landscapes, and caricatures. I also love to paint with watercolors. I believe that drawing can be taught to anyone. It's all about training the eye to see reality and then teaching the hand to transfer that aspect of reality to paper.
