About Joseph

I did my first two years of college at Worcester Polytechnic Institute studying Electrical and Computer Engineering and finished at Daniel Webster College with a degree in aviation and air traffic management. I finished my Master's degree in Statistics at the University of Southern Maine. I enjoy helping students learn new material and would some day like to be a professor of statistics at a university.

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.

Biostatistics

I have a master's degree in statistics from the University of Southern Maine. During this program I took several courses in biostatistics covering the methods used and how they are applied. Biostatistical methods were a large part of this program. I received As in all of my biostats courses.

Discrete Math

I took discrete math at WPI as an undergraduate. I use this subject in my current schoolwork on a regular basis. I find discrete math to be one of the most enjoyable branches of mathematics due to its wide applicability to a number of practical subjects.

Linear Algebra

The methods of linear algebra are much utilized in the fields of statistics operations research and I practiced many of them quite frequently during my master's program for analysis of statistical data and operations research systems (particularly queuing networks).

R

I used R as the primary statistical software for my grad school program, and continue to use R on a regular basis for data analysis projects in statistics and data science.

Great teacher

Joe is just a natural teacher. He's very bright but not the least bit pedantic. Dives right into the material. He slogs through the problems step by step with me and explains math terminology in a way that makes it seem intuitive. He's was a great find.
