About Josh


Bio

I am a graduate student in materials science and media arts and sciences, with emphases in biological engineering and immunology, at MIT. My strengths are explaining complex ideas clearly and simply, helping students with disabilities, and standardized test prep. I've helped students get into the University of Chicago, MIT, Stanford, Harvard, Yale, and UC Berkeley. I try to make tutoring a fun experience that results in great achievements.

I am a graduate student in materials science and media arts and sciences, with emphases in biological engineering and immunology, at MIT. My strengths are explaining complex ideas clearly and simply, helping students with disabilities, and standardized test prep. I've helped students get into the University of Chicago, MIT, Stanford, Harvard, Yale, and UC Berkeley. I try to make tutoring a fun experience that results in great achievements.

I've had a lot of experience using math for practical and innovative applications. Thus, I can apply concepts to interesting real world examples that people actually care about. I tend to get very invested in students' success. I will work for you in my free time to help you achieve your goals.

Help with real estate and math

Josh was very helpful he gave me learning and exam techniques. He also helped me answer questions and explained information very well. Josh also helped me with memory skills. He was excellent !!!

Alison, 2 lessons with Josh

Off to a nice start

First lesson was framed well. I plan on continuing to work with Josh. Having tried others I would consider trying him as well if I were you.

Duncan, 1 lesson with Josh

Practical application

He helped me understand some concepts in ways that are relevant to me in order for me to understand for the test but also great anaologies and practical application. This has been hard for me to find in a tutor- I really appreciated it.
