About Joseph

Hello,

My name is Joseph and I would like to help you reach a deeper level of understanding in all forms of mathematics. Often times, students are taught to simply follow procedures in order to pass tests. I want to help you develop an intuition and understanding of numbers, so that your math courses feel easy and make sense. In the words of Max Planck, "Insight must precede application."

I graduated from NCSU with three degrees:
1.) Master of Physiology
2.) B.S. in Philosophy, summa cum laude
3.) B.S. in Biological Sciences, summa cum laude

I have over four years of employed tutoring experience, spanning from local math tutoring agencies to my university's undergraduate tutorial center. My math students have ranged from first graders to calculus students. While in college, I tutored general chemistry, organic chemistry, and physics.
I received the following tutoring certification while at NCSU - "CRLA Tutor Certification Level 3 - Master Tutor".
I received a score of 100% on WyzAnt's qualification tests for Elementary Math, Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, ACT Math, SAT Math, and Chemistry.

Note: I am also available for online tutoring through WyzAnt's newly developed interface, at a reduced hourly rate.

I look forward to meeting you,
Joseph

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.

Best.tutor.ever!

We have tried other tutors, tutoring programs, and nothing seemed to work for our now 8th grade son. He has always struggled with math and this year started out with more struggles again, many F's until we found Joseph on WyzAnt. Joseph brings an enthusiasm for tutoring math to each session; he clearly loves math and tutoring and it shows. Since starting with Joseph once a week, our son's math g
