About Joe

I have over 20 years experience as a teacher from K-12 through college.

I have taught English (communications, reading, writing, and grammar) as well as biology (biology, zoology, and environmental science).

This is because I love to teach and tutor because when the light bulb goes off for a student, it is a wonderful experience for me as well as the student.

My tutoring methods are detailed, precise, concise, and nice. I individualize each lesson plan and objective to meet each students needs.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Cooking

I have experience as a private vegetarian/vegan chief dating back 25 years. I have enjoyed cooking/preparing vegetarian dished for over 30 years.

Now, this means I have a variety of my own recipes and am also very skilled at teaching others how to master recipes from some very excellent cookbooks, which makes it easier to learn step by step.

I have also mastered a variety of spices that bring life to many dishes.

I have over 25 years of experience as a adjunct professor of communications, so I am very skilled at teaching and communicating how to make amazing vegetarian/vegan dishes! Your family and friends will ask for seconds!

Public Speaking

I am an adjunct professor of public speaking with 20 years experience.

I have taught Public Speaking (also called Speech or Oral Communications) for the past 6 years at the University of Phoenix and Grand Valley State University, among other colleges.

These courses examine the practical programs in speech preparation, delivery, informative and persuasive strategies, and listening and responding to the messages of others. Most of what a student gains from this course comes not only from reading the text but also from in-class projects, simulation exercises, and skills training. Job interviewing skills are a part of these courses.

Sociology

I have taught several courses in Social/Psychology at Spring Arbor University.
