About Joseph

I have a current teaching record of five years at an accredited university institution in geology and GIS. A background in geology research and employment beginning in 1981 with professional registration in Kentucky details a broad understanding for teaching and tutoring methodologies. As a professional geologist, I currently consult within the industry in exploration efforts within many of the major basins of the United States.

I teach students the process of data mining, compilation, processing, analysis and determination of geological applications in a digital environment and field investigations with GPS techniques. Special emphasis is given to report writing, poster and oral presentations at numerous science conferences. Student group travel, interaction and participation at national science meetings is also integral to the geological educational experience.

There are numerous computer programs associated to the field of geology allowing expatiated processing, analysis and determinations in a digital environment. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is a well rounded program that students can easily adapt and use in the growing field of geology. Teaching GIS enables the student to acquire an edge and understanding in geological applications required by the industry.

As a consulting geologist working within the industry, I have been teaching students these processes for 10 years and include a variety of data types used in the geological industry. I teach introduction to geology with lab, GIS for geologists and mentored student research in multiple applications and procedures.

If you are having issues with general geologic theories, methodologies and procedures or GIS applications within this field, perhaps I can work with you to resolve your concerns. I have a good rapport with students from feedback questionnaires and I understand the problems and issues many students undergo within the educational environment. Math and science can be difficult subjects if the principle theories are not understood or presented properly, resulting in degree changes or resignation.
