About Joshua

To graduate with a BA in Writing, we were asked to tutor in the Writing Center at the University of Nevada for the entire senior year. So as I left my college career behind me, I was primed and ready to take on all types of students with all different levels of learning. I began tutoring again, while I began my Master's in Elementary Education with the University of Phoenix, which was started in April of 2014. I have worked mainly one on one, but now am in a classroom, working in more group activities and have been selected to work with autistic children exclusively in K-8 by the WCSD.
I am married, no children yet, one dog, and all three of us just love the outdoors, mainly the winter season. We are hoping for lots of snow this year in the Lake Tahoe Basin! I maintain that I am fun to tutor with because I am always excited to see my students "get it!" When the light turns on, it can it open and lighten the path to a greater understanding of how the English Language can be your best ally in a world that requires exceptional communication skills.


I have been all over France and studied the language at the University de Pau, in the South of France for a full semester and was part of a total immersion program through the University of Nevada. I would be mainly a review tutor, finding and correcting grammar mistakes etc.

I have lived all over the U.S. and visited all over Europe and understand the differences in Inflection and tones from the different types of people that I have learned from and taught to. I have mastered the use of the language and have a deep understanding of how it works and doesn't work in this fast paced society. I will help you stand out from the crowd with selecting and editing to the students expectations for papers, resumes, grammar and whatever else is needed for success in any classroom.

I am very available this week and all other Washoe County School District holidays! Let's get you the grade you deserve or the position that you are perfect for! I am ready and able to take that next step with you, give me a chance, you will not regret it!

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.

English

I have my BA in English/Writing and have been tutoring off and on for 16 years. I also studied French in France for a semester and logged a years worth of tutoring at the Writing Center at U of N.

Geography

I received an A in my college Geography class and have been an independent study of the Earth ever since. I can help in the research department as well as a contact that is getting his BS in Geology and he is doing this in Australia! I am an Earth nerd and proud of it.

Grammar

With my BA in English Writing I have tutored students from 2nd grade up to college level subjects and am excited to help with reading comprehension as well as writing styles and especially grammar. I have written children's stories and am very confident in non-fiction writing as well. I am working now as a teachers aide for a 1st and 2nd grade class but I work mostly with an autistic child with all his subjects.

Reading

Within my BA, I was not only a study of writers but of their work included. I was exposed to Western Traditions Literature, Native American Literature, Woman's Literature, Children's Literature, African American Literature, and multiple classes dealing primarily fiction based materials and story telling. I have proven strategies for early to late reading learners and am available as soon as you need me.

Writing

I am a patient and knowledgeable English Language tutor among other K-8 subjects. I do have my BA in Writing and have been tutoring now for over a year in Seattle and now here in Reno. I am confident that my background and current knowledge will be a great asset to any tutor subject.
