About Joseph


Bio

I'm a recent Yale grad with experience tutoring and teaching a wide range of ages and subjects. I began tutoring when I was a high school freshman, working one-on-one with special needs students in a larger classroom setting, and for one summer, I assisted an ESL teacher in Philadelphia working with Chinese adults hoping to gain American citizens. Once I began college, I worked once a week with elementary school students in an after school ESL program, and for one year, I taught an improv...

I'm a recent Yale grad with experience tutoring and teaching a wide range of ages and subjects. I began tutoring when I was a high school freshman, working one-on-one with special needs students in a larger classroom setting, and for one summer, I assisted an ESL teacher in Philadelphia working with Chinese adults hoping to gain American citizens. Once I began college, I worked once a week with elementary school students in an after school ESL program, and for one year, I taught an improv class to high school students as part of New Haven extracurricular program. During my summers, I've been able to tutor high school students in the SAT and ACT Writing, Verbal, and English sections, something I've thoroughly enjoyed.

I'm patient and knowledgeable, and I have a good sense of humor. I love working with students of all ages, from elementary school kids to adult learners. I believe that every student can tackle the subject at hand--it's just a matter of finding out what works best for the student. I hope that through working with students, I can coach them to ask the right questions and find the right solutions. Beyond encouraging mastery of a topic, I want to equip students with learning tools and strategies that can help them no matter what they're learning.

I'm only a few years removed from the college application process, so the standardized test process is still fresh in my mind. Beyond that, I've refreshed and deepened my understanding of the SAT and ACT as I've tutored students in these tests. Feel free to contact me with any questions. I love to help students excel, and I'm excited to start working with you!

Highly recommend Joseph!

Joseph has been working with my son for two months to prepare him for SAT. It was not easy to convince my son to work with a tutor. However, immediately after the first lesson, my son found Joseph to be extremely helpful and he was eager to continue the lessons. Joseph is very knowledgeable and patient tutor. Joseph really helped my son understand the more complicated test questions he was struggling with and built his confidence. We have seen a huge progress on my son's practice tests since he started working with Joseph. I highly recommend Joseph.

Excellent Tutor with a real method

Joseph worked with my son, a high school Junior on SAT prep. He had an excellent manner. He had a strong view on what was needed to excel on the SAT and worked patiently and thoroughly. I appreciated what he brought to the first meeting -- books he thought we should use and why -- and a strong sense of how to approach the test. I recommend him highly!

Builds confidence

I have been watching over the past few weeks how Joseph is helping my daughter build confidence. They decode the questions and discuss the answers to learn for the next set of practice questions. He does not overburden her with practice but works to build on her strengths. He is a pleasure to work with, a really nice person.
