About Joe


Bio

I became a teacher after spending 20 years as an executive with investment banks in Chicago and London, UK. I have specialized in students with difficulties. Most recently, I spent the past 5 years teaching GED (all subjects) to state inmates at the Penitentiary of New Mexico. I had consistent success in both degree attainment and gains in test scores. My endorsements are in English and History. However, as a GED teacher I became quite adept at teaching high school math as well.

I became a teacher after spending 20 years as an executive with investment banks in Chicago and London, UK. I have specialized in students with difficulties. Most recently, I spent the past 5 years teaching GED (all subjects) to state inmates at the Penitentiary of New Mexico. I had consistent success in both degree attainment and gains in test scores. My endorsements are in English and History. However, as a GED teacher I became quite adept at teaching high school math as well.

For example, I had a student who was taking the GED the next morning. But he had not yet studied algebra. In one four hour session I taught him everything he needed to pass the test, which he did. I have a good understanding of how one math concept builds upon another.

I love history. What makes me unique is that I attended university in Europe. So I deepened my knowledge of European history, with an emphasis on how the French Revolution impacted religion, culture, and subsequent history. Many of my classmates were from formerly communist nations. So the study of socialism and Marxism was integral to our studies. I spent 2 years in the personal archives of Pope John Paul II and researched his work as a professor in Poland. I received an academic fellowship to pursue this research.

I am happy to answer any questions you have to see if I would be a good tutor for you.
