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.

Calculus Made Easy

After one tutoring session Joe was able to help my college junior understand Calculus a little better and made it so he was less nervous. Will continue to use Joe to help him conquer Calc! Thank you

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.
