About Joshua

I hold a PhD in geology, and I am trained as a vertebrate paleontologist with experience in both the earth and biological sciences. I am very excited to learn and teach math and science as a result of my academic training. I also have a long record as a speech and debate competitor, so I love to teach public speaking, critical thinking skills, and reading and writing comprehension.

I am very passionate about learning! I have experience teaching all the way from the preschool level up to the graduate student level and everything in between. I have successfully tutored many students in undergraduate science courses - so well that their professors were unsure why they needed tutoring in the first place!

I am broadly trained in earth science and biology. I have taught in these fields at the college level for the past 5 years. I have also taught chemistry and physical science to junior high school and high school students as substitute and public outreach educator.

I am highly competent in math, specifically statistics. I have experience teaching middle school math as a substitute teacher.

I have more than a decade of experience using and teaching critical thinking and critical reading skills as a college course instructor, substitute teacher, and speech and debate instructor.

I am excited to meet you and your child to learn about your academic needs! I am passionate about teaching and doing science, math, and reading, and I would love to pass those passions on to your student as well! Please contact me to schedule lessons.

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.

Geology

I hold a PhD in geology from the University of Kansas. I have taught several geology courses at the collegiate level, and I have taught labs ranging from the introductory level to the graduate level. I am very passionate about teaching about geology and earth science!

Public Speaking

I was a speech and debate competitor for 3 years in high school and 4 years in college. I taught high school students debate and public speaking for 3 years as a summer instructor. I am presently a substitute teacher and lecturer, and I routinely speak publicly about science.

Great job

My 14 year old son truly benefitted from Joshua's instruction after only one Algebra 1 session. My son said he now understands things he had not understood despite being very far into the semester in high school. We definitely recommend Joshua for his math instruction.
