About Joseph

I began as a tutor in high school working with friends and family in need of assistance. What began as a way to help blossomed into an exciting and invigorating experience. Tutoring has allowed me to fundamentally change the life of students, forever imbuing them with the skills and knowledge to succeed. My desire to teach is only exceeded by my desire to see my students succeed.

My tutoring methods vary as students vary. Each student requires a unique approach and I carefully cultivate methods for each pupil to ensure their success. I have worked with a variety of students ranging from those with learning disabilities all the way to brilliant students seeking a challenge. Simply put, I love to teach and I thoroughly enjoy the one-on-one interaction tutoring provides.

With a degree in chemistry and history, I have the skills and knowledge to instruct students on a variety of subjects. Tutoring is not just about success in the classroom but rather about working with the individual to grow and acquire new skills. I view my goal as a tutor is to put myself out of a job by teaching students the skills for success in their given subject.

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.

Actuarial Science

I have taken multiple actuarial modeling courses and received an A in each of them. I have taken the P exam (and passed) and am prepping for the FM exam this summer.

Calculus

Calculus is the first math class I fell in love with. The beauty of the math in addition immense number of things it can be applied to make calculus exciting. I have assisted hundreds of students in calculus and hope to work with you in the future!

Chemistry

Let my love of chemistry infect your son, daughter, or perhaps yourself! I have been tutoring and taught chemistry for years and find immense enjoyment assisting others in the subject.

Perfect Tutor!

We enlisted Joseph R's help with calculus 2 for our daughter. I must say that without his help, this class would have been unmanageable. Many classes at Arizona State University are self-taught these days, but math should not be one of them. Unfortunately, some professors have forgotten how to teach or why the got into teaching in the first place, to the detriment of the student. Without Joseph's
