About Yosef

As a former government scientist and language major I have been a lifelong learner. I am very aware of what students require to learn well. I have been a teacher/substitute teacher for 16 years since leaving the government. I have several years of experience in tutoring and have received many praises from my students and their parents for my patience, understanding, and ability to teach on the student's level. One senior high school student who was flunking algebra 2, ended up with a B grade and passed. I have always been a caring and student-oriented teacher and have used different teaching methods to accommodate the different learning styles to help my students improve. I can give several references from parents who were totally satisfied with my work. I have also been background-checked by both Harrison/Pearl River and Hancock counties and Catholic schools.

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.

ASVAB

Chemistry major minoring in math. Completed Prealgebra, Algebra 1 and 2, Geometry, Trigonometry, Calculus, and Differential Equations. This eminently qualifies me for ASVAB math work because it is mostly Algebra.

Ballroom Dancing

I have taken group ballroom dancing lessons since 1973 where I began at the Dallas Northpark ballroom dancing club. There we learned basics of fox-trot,swing, cha-cha, rumba, and waltz. I later learned samba and merengue in New Orleans at both the Fred Astaire dance studio and the Jefferson Ballroom, and also took private lessons from a professional dance instructor in tango. I continue to practice these lessons at local dances in this area.

Drawing

I have taken Life/Still Life Drawing classes at the free University of New Orleans, as well as at N.O. Museum of Art. Subsequently, I have taken acrylic painting classes for the last 3 years at the Saucier, MS, Woolmarket,Long Beach, and Bay St. Louis senior centers, as well as painted
ceramics at all the above.

Elementary Math

B.S. in Chemistry, minor in math. Teacher since 1998 and always complimented for my ability to get through to the students and overcome any difficulties.

ESL/ESOL

I have a B.S. in Chemistry from UNO and a B.A. in German. I have excellent English skills and have written several scientific articles. I successfully completed the St Tammany Parish Literacy Society's ESL course, and as a college student I helped many of my foreign friends with their English mastery.

Photography

I have been a photographer for many years and took Digital Photoediting Class at Bay St. Louis Library. My camera is a digital Canon Powershot S5 with 8 Mp resolution and close-up ability. I took an Advanced Life- Photography class at the Free Univ. Of New Orleans a few years ago. I am also a volunteer photographer for the Tea Party Movement.

Prealgebra

I have taught math in 6th,7th and 8th grade in a private school, and Advanced Math in a private high school. I have taken Geometry,Trigonometry, Algebra 1,2,Calculus, and Differential Equations. I recently tutored a Rummel High senior who was flunking Algebra 2 and was not going to o graduate;he finished with a B!

Reading

Graduate of UNO in both chemistry and German, as well as completed most education certification classes at Southeastern. I was able to skip over the first two freshman English classes because of my superior SAT results.
