About Joseph

I have a PhD in Statistics from Stanford University. I have over 30 years experience teaching at the college level. However, for the past 13 years I have been helping younger students. I specialize in preparing students to take the SAT and ACT mathematics tests and have been successful in preparing students to achieve higher scores on both the SAT and the ACT Math and Science sections. I have studied all the various techniques that have been proposed and I have adopted only those that have proven to help the students achieve consistently higher scores. I have also tutored many students in AP Statistics, both on the subject matter as well as the AP exam.

In addition to tutoring the standardized exams, I have also tutored all the basic high school mathematics classes. I have taught at the college level and know the skills required to succeed in today's challenging job environment. Because of my background I am qualified to help students of all ages and abilities from middle school to college level courses. I can provide guidance in both a group and in an individual setting. However, individual training is generally preferred in that I can tailor a program to the specific student. The success of the student is my greatest reward.

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 Math

For the past 10 years I have had great success tutoring students for both the SAT and ACT math test sections. I have extensively reviewed the various techniques that have been proposed in the literature and selected those that really work. I specifically tailor the approach to the capabilities and goals of each student. I also emphasize those approaches that will assist the student not only on the standardized exams, but also in their standard school mathematics.

I also have a proven approach for tackling the ACT science test. This is a part of the ACT that many studentss find the most challenging.

Biostatistics

I am a PhD in Statistics from Stanford University. I have taught Statistics at both George Washington University and American University for over 30 years. I have taught and tutored Biostatistics and I am currently working on a Medical Records Project for the Department of Defense which includes a requirement for knowledge of Biostatistics methods.

Probability

I am a PhD in statistics from Stanford University, and I minored in math. I have taught statistics at both American University and George Washington University. For the past 10 years I have been tutoring students in high school statistics, both at the regular and AP level. I have also helped prepare students to take the AP statistics exam. I work well with students and have had great success.

PSAT

I have a PhD in Mathematical Statistics from Stanford University. For the past 9 years I have been successfully tutoring students for the math sections of the PSAT, SAT and ACT. My proven approach is based on the use of practice tests which are all actual previously used exams. I also teach techniques that can be used to improve weakness areas as well as to increase your speed if necessary. I also provide many teaching aids that cover problem solving techniques.

SAT Math

I have a PhD in Statistics from Stanford University. For the past 10 years, I have had great success tutoring students for both the SAT and ACT Math test. I have extensively reviewed the various techniques that have been proposed in the literature and selected those that really work.

Statistics

I am a PhD in Statistics from Stanford University. I have taught Statistics at both American University and George Washington University so I can effectively help any college student overcome any statistics problem areas with which they are having difficulty. Also, for the past 10 years I have also been tutoring students in high school Statistics, both at the regular and AP level. I have successfully helped prepare students to take the AP Statistics exam. I enjoy and work well with students at all levels and have had great success with both high school and college level students. I look forward to helping you succeed.
