About Joseph

Joe has been a classroom teacher for seven years, a school principal and schools supervisor for five years, and an education adviser to educational institutions in developing countries for over 30 years. With over 43 years experience in education, in more than 30 countries including the United States, Joe has formulated an approach to learning that: (1) meets specific academic needs while improving learning skills; (2) motivates students through practical applications and links to a student's personal experiences; (3) involves career counseling so that students can link present learning with future employment; and, (4) aligns with the natural learning mechanisms of the brain. Your tutor will use a variety of instructional materials and methods that include real-world experiences and tools such as job application forms, the newspaper and news magazines, and even product labels to name a few. Embedded in the learning process is the need to address such psychosocial issues as taking responsibility for planning, setting goals and achieving; learning how to identify what needs to be learned; exercising self control; and identifying resources to solve problems. This whole approach to learning is designed to improve long-term educational outcomes after the tutoring period has ended.

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 have a Pennsylvania Teaching Certificate for elementary education. I have taught grades four through eight for seven years at accredited schools. I have a Master's degree in Elementary Education.

Phonics

I received training in teaching of reading including phonics at both the undergraduate and graduate levels during my degree programs. I taught reading using phonics and structural analysis during my seven years as a classroom teacher.

Social Studies

My undergraduate degree is in sociology with a minor in psychology. I have lived and worked in more then 30 countries in Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, Sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East thus gaining first-hand insight into social, cultural, political, economic and religious practices. I am an international development adviser and have been for the last 25 years.

Study Skills

I have 7 years teaching experience. I have tutored for approximately 1 year. I have had to apply effective study skills in achieving a doctorate in education. I have written dozens of competitive proposals and grant applications valued as high as $100 million which has required extensive research, synthesis and organization of information.
