About Joel

Hello, my name is Joel. I am a Social Studies Education major at UNL. I am of senior standing and will graduate in May, I have been accepted into the college of education and have completed 2 field practicums and am currently doing my student teaching at Park Middle School, my Nebraska Initial Teaching Certificate will be in my hands shortly.

I am very experienced in tutoring middle school-aged students because of my time spent at these practicums. I was an after-school tutor at Irving Middle School in the "Homework Room" where I helped students with homework of all subjects. I also have experience tutoring students grades 6-12 because I volunteered at Lighthouse, the community-based after school program, where once again I helped students with homework in subjects outside of social studies. I also took the Praxis II last year (social studies content test) and scored very well), so I am willing to tutor college students as well.

I pride myself on my ability to develop close, professional relationships with students. This allows me to gain their trust and develop good rapport. From my experience tutoring, I often find that once I have gained their trust I am able to help them get "invested" in their work and education. Lack of effort is not the case for all students. Some students may just need a helping hand and that is where I am more than willing to step in and use my knowledge and educating skills to help them accomplish their goals.

In the classroom, I take a student-centered approach on teaching so students are in control of their education and I act as a guide to their success. I tend to do the same when tutoring by having students answer their own questions opposed to "spoon feeding" them the answers. If I am tutoring your student in social studies, I have a great grasp on the habit of mind skills (close reading, sourcing, corroboration, contextualization, and taking multiple perspectives) and I will be able to teach your student to use these skills in other subject areas as well.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am qualified to tutor this subject area because of my experience with youth as well as my college education. I have spent hours tutoring students in multiple subject areas at Lighthouse, a community-based after school program in Lincoln. I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in social science education and am certified to teach grades 7-12. Although, I have taken classes that gave me the knowledge and skills to teach lower grade levels. My tutoring methods are student-centered where the student controls their learning and sets the pace, and I help set the goals and make sure they accomplish them, acting as a guide to their education.
