About Joshua

I want you to love science just as much as I love science. I went to a private college in Arkansas. I fell in love with teaching science, living science and experimenting every, single day.

After I graduated, I moved to Madison, WI to work for a Biotechnology company. I loved that so much I was ready for school again. I started as a Research Assistant at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. My main focus is with protein chemistry, small molecules and bacteriology.

I am here to help you become a better student. I specialize in tutoring microbiology, molecular biology, genetics, biochemistry and organic chemistry.

Yes, I can help you with the GRE. I am more interested and invested in challenging you to be a better scientist. I like helping students get through challenging courses and material.

I will assign some homework after every lesson. But, I really want to teach you how to think.

I am reading the current scientific literature so that what I teach is accurate and up-to-date. I am learning new ways to motivate students every day. I will ask for feedback to make sure you are getting the help you need with the results that you seek. I will never bill for a lesson if you are not completely satisfied with my tutoring.

I am pretty flexible with my times. I do have a 12-hour cancellation policy, but I will offer a makeup class if absolutely necessary.

I look forward to hearing from you!

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.

Microbiology

I have practical experience studying gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria - specifically, pseudomonas aeruginosa, e. coli, staphylococcus aureus, burkholderia cepacia and bacillus subtilis. I have theoretical experience in advanced courses like advanced microbial genetics and mechanisms of microbial pathogenesis.

Organic Chemistry

My undergraduate degree was in Chemistry. I took two semesters of Organic chemistry in college and graduate school. I have graduate-level research experience specifically looking at organic chemistry synthesis.

Physical Science

I have an undergraduate degree in a physical science - chemistry. I have many years post-bachelorette experience in chemistry, physical chemistry and physics. I tutored during my undergraduate career in college physics and physical chemistry.

Outstanding Work!!!

Josh has been tutoring our sixth grade son in math for five months now, and the results have been amazing. Our son's math scores are on the rise, and his overall attitude about school is even changing. Not only is Josh a subject matter expert and an excellent tutor, but his style and connection with our son are probably a key reason for our success. Josh knows how to motivate to inspire better
