About Josh

Hello! I am a 6th year medical student in UMKC's 6 year BA/MD program and have enjoyed tutoring students for the past eight years. I specialize in assisting high school students prepare for the ACT and SAT. I also enjoy tutoring students in Algebra 1 and 2, chemistry, and physiology. Every student has different goals and different methods of learning, so each student's tutoring experience will be different. When tutoring for the ACT or SAT, I will show you how to break down the questions and use the test format to your advantage. The methods that I use have helped many students gain the confidence and knowledge needed to score significantly higher on their exams.

In my free time, I love running, biking, and experiencing all there is to do around Kansas City. I am also actively involved at my church, have taught Sunday school to preschoolers and enjoy doing volunteer tutoring at DeLaSalle charter school.

Feel free to contact me with any questions and I look forward to helping you or your student achieve confidence and the tools for success they need to excel in their work. If you are planning on taking the ACT or SAT soon, click on the resources tab to see a blog post I wrote about achieving success on standardized tests.

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 English

I have received a 36 on the ACT English section and have been working with students for the past 5 years to help them achieve their best score. While tutoring, I will use a combination of practice questions and review of concepts that will thoroughly prepare you and raise your score.

Algebra 1

I have 8 years experience tutoring algebra 1 and 2 and love helping students come to a better understanding of these challenging subjects. I typically do active, question based tutoring, either using the student's homework or I can bring questions. We break down each problem and take a step by step approach, making them seem much less complicated and intimidating.

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 is a challenging subject for many students. I have 8 years of experience helping students through it and would love to help you! We'll use a problem based approach and focus on understanding the concepts so you can apply them to any problem in the future.

Anatomy

As a 5th year medical student at UMKC, anatomy has been my life for the past few years. I have completed both an undergraduate anatomy and physiology class as well as an extensive medical school anatomy course. I would love to help you better understand this fascinating subject and make it less tedious and intimidating. We will use some memorization techniques with an emphasis on long term understanding and retention.

Physiology

As a 5th year medical student at UMKC, I have received extensive training in physiology. I have completed an undergraduate anatomy and physiology course as well as a 9 month medical school anatomy and physiology course. Physiology is one of my favorite subjects and I enjoy teaching it. We will focus on understanding and not just memorizing how the different body systems work.

Great Experience — Josh worked with my daughter to prepare for the ACT. He was helpful and accommodating in arranging the meeting time and place. Questions were answered promptly via Wyzant communication. My daughter felt the 2 hour meeting offered her a lot of practical advice and specific help in each of the individual subjects covered on the ACT. She was encouraged by the time spent. We would recommend Josh. ...
