About Joseph

I have been tutoring and teaching for the past 6 years, primarily for Calculus students. For the past two years, I was a teacher's assistant at Lehigh University. My job included but was not limited to conducting recitations for students where they were able to ask questions about lecture and see examples worked out in full detail on the blackboard. I also did a lot of grading, so I know common mistakes students make in various Math subjects.

I like tutoring because I like to see how a student comes in not understanding something, and leaves a tutoring session feeling even the slightest bit more confident about the material at hand. Within time, I find most of the students I tutor get a better understanding, and clearer "picture" as to what their particular Math course is about, and that is very satisfying to me.

My ultimate goal as a tutor is to "bridge the gap" between lecture and homework problems, and seeing students achieve that "aha" moment when things start to make sense is something I look forward to.

I have the ability to make Math make sense, and really motivate what is being said in the textbook or in class notes (even though sometimes it may seem to be in another language). I can provide illustrative examples that tie in the underlying meaning of particular concepts, which can help clear up confusion students may have.

Students typically learn from me and I feel I have a great way of teaching general concepts and topics, providing examples for those topics, and teaching the student how to tie in the concept and the example to generalize their future solutions.

I look forward to hearing from all of you are looking forward to learning Math in a clear, concise way.

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.

Differential Equations

I am well versed in separable and linear first order ODE's as portrayed in Stewart Calculus Books. I am also familiar with mixing problems, and higher order differential equations. I have also studied variation of parameters and undetermined coefficients.

Discrete Math

I took Discrete Math at Ramapo College. I am familiar with introduction to proof writing techniques, such as direct proofs, proof by contradiction, and induction. I am also well versed in elementary set theory and cardinality concepts on sets.

Linear Algebra

I took linear algebra, abstract algebra, and many other algebra courses over the past few years. I am well versed in elementary row reductions, subspace test, eigenvalue analyses, diagonalizability criteria, and linear transformations on vector spaces (and fields).
