University of Missouri (Chemistry, History)
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.

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 help, our daughter would not have made it with her professor. Joseph brought a professional, compassionate, positive learning experience to our daughter and basically taught her the majority of the class. He was able to break it down efficiently and actually teach the material. He was very responsive and flexible with tutoring times as well. We HIGHLY recommend Joseph's services because he knows his stuff.
Joseph worked with my son on study habits and PreCalculus. He asked a lot of questions to really get to know him and what his goals are. My son said Joseph was easier to understood than his instructor. I feel comfortable that working with Joseph this year will be worth the time and money.
Joseph worked with our daughter for 8 tutoring sessions this last semester. Before we found Joseph, my daughter was extremely frustrated, losing confidence and we were unable to help her at any appreciable level. It was becoming a daily frustration and one that was having detrimental impact to my daughter's health due to stress. Fortunately, we came across Joseph's information and agreed to move forward. Joseph has been excellent from a parent's perspective. He is punctual, communicates very well and has been a huge help in getting our daughter the help she needed. She has expressed her appreciation for Joseph's tutoring style and patience......and has repeatedly stated that "he is awesome."
I basically come in with a list of a few topics I'm lost on, and he's able to thoroughly explain each to me in a way that i understand. In addition, he gives me practice problems and works them out with me until i'm confident enough to do them on my own. I always leave each session feeling like I learned a lot more than i did going in.
Joseph is an awesome tutor! After one session with Joseph, I felt like i had the confidence to complete the rest of my college algebra class with at least an A. He is very good at breaking down and explaining problems the way you can best understand them! very polite and cool as well.
Joe taught me the basics of calculus and explained it in a way that made it easier for me to remember. Joe brought my grade up by nearly 7.5% in about 4 days. I would recommend Joe to anyone, he was that great to work with.
Joe did a great job helping me understand calculus in a way that made things much more simple to comprehend.
I was very glad we found Joseph as a tutor! He was able to help my son salvage his "D" in AP Calculus when we were close to giving up. He helped my son learn enough to bring his grade to a "B" by then end of the first semester and to maintain that grade through the second semester as well. We found Joseph is youthful enough to effectively communicate with a teen, and able to present the information in a way that made more sense to my son. He also helped my son re-examine his own study habits and provide us with helpful tips and resources. He encouraged my son to do his best and continue to try when there seemed to be very little hope, and was flexible around some of our scheduling challenges. My son's thoughts about Joseph include: He was patient with my shortcomings, was able to look ahead in terms of progress, worked well with teens, has a lot of experience, and can look at problems in a new way/ flexible. We would highly recommend Joseph as a tutor.
Joe helped me review for my final calc exam less than 3 weeks before the exam and had helped boost my confidence of solving problems and getting through my steps in everything that was reviewed! Highly recommend!
My son has been receiving math and chemistry AP tutoring from Joseph, and we couldn't be happier. He is extremely accessible even with a short notice and most of all he is very knowledgeable and clearly communicates the concepts and learning points to my son. Since we started tutoring with him, my son has a much better and deeper understanding of the course materials. We are extremely happy with Joseph, and I highly recommend others to check him out as well.
My son really feels that Joseph is a great tutor.
Even though this year is essentially done, I have already asked Joseph if he will be available next year. My son thinks that Joseph is good at relating to him on his level & explains things in a meaningful way. He has been reliable & I expect that I will call on him again the next school year when my son is a senior in HS. Thank you for your help, patience, & guidance.
Joseph tutored me for my CP chemistry class. He took me on short notice and he was very punctual. Joseph took lead of the appointment and I liked that he guided me through the examples without actually doing them for me. He definitely knew what he was talking about and left me with great notes. He's the first one I'll contact if I need help again!
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.
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!
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.
I worked in an undergraduate and a graduate lab in organic chemistry. I have been tutoring this subject for years and have lots of experience helping a variety of students.
