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.

Joseph is a statistical life saver

Joseph spent three solid hours on the phone with me to help me get on track with Biostatistics. He patiently walked through problems and formulas and made sure I understood before going ahead. He has experience with George Washington University's program and was able to help without skipping a beat. I would highly recommend him.

Christina , 1 lesson with Joseph

Incredible biostatistics tutor!

Joe was, hands-down, the most patient, knowledgeable, and gracious tutor I've ever worked with. He is not only incredibly well versed in the material but was able to explain it in a way that was easy to understand. I had never taken a statistics class before but felt comfortable in the material after working with Joe. I've worked with Joe for nearly an entire semester and enjoyed every session. By the end of our sessions, I felt totally prepared for my final exam.

Molly, 9 lessons with Joseph

Very knowledgeable and on point.

Joseph has great insight and understanding of statistics and is able to help me put the pieces together in a way that helps me grasp concepts easier. He is able to take complicated statistics and bring it down to my level of understanding.

Elizabeth, 2 lessons with Joseph

Extremely knowledgeable and a terrific teacher

Joseph is very organized in presenting information and knows different ways to reach the correct answer. Jospeh helped me with statistics and really helped me to understand what I need to do.

Dana, 1 lesson with Joseph

Knowledgable and patient.

Working with Joe has given me a better fundamental understanding in how to read and apply Math. I have seen my Grade improve and I continue to develop an interest in solving a problem versus looking for a quick answer.

Marian, 17 lessons with Joseph

Very Knowledgeable; patients; helpful!

Hypothesis testing and how to use my TI-84 calculator, which came in very handy! I also appreciate his knowledge and patience, and scheduling flexibility. I would recommend him to others struggling to get started in Stats.

Julie, 9 lessons with Joseph

Terrific tutor

Joseph has a true understanding of students, our strengths and our strighs. He is generous of his insight and intellect . While I have a regular tutor he came on at the 13th hour to clarify. Statistical analytics is all new for me and he was/is patient and understanding. Only complaint...need more time!!!

Alexandra, 7 lessons with Joseph

Excellent, knowledge and patience

He helped me tremendously by making sure I understood the fundamentals. I feel more comfortable now. I was completely lost with some of the probabilities and he explained in detail the concepts

MaBinti, 6 lessons with Joseph

Very Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Joe was very patient with me and walked me through the fundamentals of Business Statistics. He gave me an overall understanding that helped complete the picture for which I needed to pass my course. He also referred me to online resources that were very helpful.

Richard, 1 lesson with Joseph

Extremely Knowledgeable and Helpful

He taught me literally 2 chapters of my syllabus in an Hour and a Half. He was patient, and explained everything over when i didn't understand. He was extremely resourceful making sure He provided me with as many resources as he could.
