My last assignment in the Navy before retiring in 2009 was as the Director of Professional Tutoring at the United States Naval Academy, where I supervised 8 Masters/PhD level tutors, taught Learning Skills (Time Management, Note Taking, Test Taking, etc.), and tutored Calc I, Statics and the ASTB. Additionally, I coached high school volleyball for 10 years in Anne Arundel County, and tutored some of my players over the years in Algebra II, Pre-Calc, and Calculus.

Test Preparation

ASVAB,

ASVAB

I am familiar with both the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) and the Aviation Selection Test Battery (ASTB). The ASVAB is used by all of the military services to qualify for enlisted positions, while the ASTB is used by the Navy for officer programs and the Marine Corps and the Coast Guard for officer flight programs. I took the ASVAB when I was in 10th grade and received scores (in percentile) of Verbal-96, Math-97, Perceptual Speed-22 (I was a slow reader), Mechanical-98, Trade Technical-87, and Academic Ability-98. I tutor the ASTB at the United States Naval Academy. In March 2010, I was hired by Barron's Educational Series as an Independent Contractor to review their Military Flight Aptitude Tests book for a future edition.

Extremely knowledgeable and patient

Helped me with mechanical comprehension for the ASTB test. Was very patient and broke down every problem in fine details. Maximized time and allowed focused on teaching the methodology needed to solve these problems. Overcame technical difficulties to make the learning easy.

Highly Qualified, Effective and Patient Tutor

Joe is a kind, patient and highly capable tutor. Though he tutors many students in much higher levels of math, Joe met my son where he was in Algebra I and has been a tremendous help to him. He is very effective in explaining the concepts and offering strategies for solving problems, all while being kind and patient. We highly recommend Joe.

Wonderful tutor for Calculus AB/BC

Joe worked with my daughter throughout the 2015-2016 school year tutoring her in Calculus AB/BC. He was wonderful - patient, knowledgeable, personable and dependable. With his help my daughter maintained a high A average throughout the year, but more importantly felt like she acquired a good grasp of the material. Having Joe available to work through her questions each week was invaluable. I would highly recommend Joe as a tutor to anyone needing help with math!

Always Excellent

Joe always does a great job helping my daughter understand difficult math concepts. Math isn't her favorite subject but she has more confidence in her ability to solve the problems thanks to Joe's patient and clear explanations of things she doesn't understand.

Great tutor.

Joe was on time and very effective. My daughter had a boost of confidence for her test the next day. We will definitely continue with Joe!

Jay, 19 lessons with Joe

Great tutor!!!

Joe was very patient and helpful. He provided online tutoring for a Calculus 2 course. I went from doing very poorly on the first exam of the semester to nearly acing the final exam. Joe's instruction was wonderful. He even looked up information from a pre-calc text book to be prepared for the range of information I had sent him in advance of the lesson. Well prepared and very helpful. I would highly recommend Joe for calculus tutoring.

Great tutor!

Joe knows the material and is able to present it clearly. He is quick to respond to emails and is always on time for lessons. Joe is an overall great guy and we highly recommend him for students who need help with pre-calc or calculus.

Great Tutor!

Joe P. is a great tutor! My daughter was having major trouble in her AP Calculus class and we searched several places for a tutor. We discovered WyzAnt and fortunately Joe. He was patient, easy to understand and great with explaining the concepts. Joe was very reliable and dedicated, meeting with her even on the snowy days this past winter. Each marking period her grades improved and she completed the fourth marking period with 87% in AP Calculus. I would recommend Joe P. to anyone that needs a tutor. The results speak for themselves.

Ricquel, 25 lessons with Joe

Awesome!

My son actually enjoys his time with Joe and doesn't feel like he is being "preached" to. Joe seems to make concepts clear and easy to follow and my son feels like he is getting valuable information.
