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 his own study sheets which were very helpful. Joe is great at finding your weaknesses and addressing them early. He makes sure you have a solid background before moving onto harder concepts. Joe did the impossible: making calculus enjoyable. Joe cares about his students and their success; he sent me a motivational email before my final. Joe was the first person I called when I found out I got an "A" because it would have been impossible without his help. I would recommend Joe to everyone and anyone who needs a math tutor.Morgan, 23 lessons with Joe

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 youMaria, 1 lesson with Joe

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.Jackie, 3 lessons with 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!Anna , 24 lessons with Joe
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.Sandy, 89 lessons with Joe
