About Joseph


Bio

I’ve been tutoring students privately, primarily in math and science, for over fifteen years. I've worked with renowned cancer researchers at Stanford, helped students who thought they had no chance of passing to succeed, and helped other students to excel. My aim is to be not only a tutor but also a mentor, and I have had the good fortune to be able to guide students in original scientific research. Two of my high school students were recently named regional finalists in the 2012 Google...

I’ve been tutoring students privately, primarily in math and science, for over fifteen years. I've worked with renowned cancer researchers at Stanford, helped students who thought they had no chance of passing to succeed, and helped other students to excel. My aim is to be not only a tutor but also a mentor, and I have had the good fortune to be able to guide students in original scientific research. Two of my high school students were recently named regional finalists in the 2012 Google Science Fair for our project.

My qualifications include:
• A PhD in Cancer Biology from Stanford University
• More than fifteen years of professional experience tutoring middle school, high school and college students including experience tutoring students with ADD/ADHD and LDs (dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia)
• Experience in course design and laboratory instruction for undergraduates and graduate students at Stanford
• Extensive hands-on expertise in experiment design
• A professional background in SAT preparation
• A knack for clear communication and instruction

Test Preparation

MCAT,

MCAT

I have a doctorate in biology, which required me to learn a fair amount of physical sciences. I have tutored students in college level math, physics, and chemistry. I'm adept at verbal reasoning and have taught SAT classes professionally. Of course I have expertise in biology. In addition, I was trained to teach MCAT professionally (but never did so) in the late 1990s.
