About Joe

I previously taught at the United States Naval Academy from Jan 2009 to Dec 2012 as an Adjunct Instructor/Tutor teaching Calculus I and tutoring Pre-Calc, Calc I, Calc II, Statics, and the Aviation Selection Test Battery (ASTB - a standardized test required for those who want to fly in the Navy/Marine Corps). 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.

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.

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.

Calculus

I taught as an Adjunct Instructor at the United States Naval Academy teaching Calculus 1. And I was also employed by the Naval Academy as a tutor for Precalculus, Calculus I, and Calculus II. I continue to teach one section of Supplemental Instruction for Calculus I at the Naval Academy, a non-graded voluntary course for those who wish additional help for their graded Calculus I course.

Mechanical Engineering

I have a BS in General Engineering from the United States Naval Academy. I passed the Maryland Engineer in Training (EIT) exam. I previously tutored Statics at the Naval Academy for 3 years.

Study Skills

For two years I worked in the Center for Academic Excellence at the United States Naval Academy. During part of that time that time, I was a Learning Skills Instructor and taught topics such as Time Management, Note Taking, Effective Reading, and Test Taking.

Volleyball

I am an experienced volleyball coach, having coached high school volleyball for 9 years, 4 years as the Varsity Asst Coach and 5 years as the JV Head Coach. I also coached club volleyball for two years for the 16 and under team of the BAVA club. I have been affiliated with both the Men's and Women's Naval Academy Volleyball teams and worked the Naval Academy Volleyball Camp for 3 years. I played volleyball competitively for 20 years, both indoor and sand.

I couldn't have asked for a better experience... — I have NEVER been a student that excelled in math (think "C" average). My greatest accomplishment of 2014 was getting an "A" in calculus with Joe's help! Joe is an exceptional tutor! I needed someone who was willing to be patient and explain every concept...sometimes more than once. He was very flexible, and was always willing to stay past the 60 minute time-frame and help. He provided me with hi ...
