About Josh

Hello!

I am a full-time professional writer at IBM, and a part-time writing tutor at Marist College. I am looking to provide part-time (some evenings and weekends) writing guidance to all any and all age groups and writing levels. Support for school assignment papers, application essays, and general writing help is provided. Online tutoring is also possible. I am new to WyzAnt as of May, 2016.

My tutoring philosophy is to teach, rather than "do-for" the student. (Think of the common metaphor of teaching someone to fish for a lifetime, rather than giving them a fish for one meal.) That said, we'll be sure to get the assignment done, together. Questions / inquiries are also okay! Tutoring for minors requires a public venue, such as a library, or parental supervision. I live in Hyde Park, NY. Thanks!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a bachelor's degree in sociology from the University of Pennsylvania (1991), a master's degree in communication from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (1997), and 50 credits from the University of Connecticut School of Law. I am a full-time writer at IBM (since 1997) and a part-time tutor of writing at Marist College (since 2015). I have a ten-year-old son in the fifth grade, in a public school, and am therefore very familiar with academic assignments for the elementary school age group. I have also coached youth soccer as a volunteer (four years, for coed ages 4-8) because I enjoy helping kids grow and gain skills and confidence.

English

BA, MS, and 50 JD credits. Full-time writer at IBM. Part-time writing tutor at Marist College.

Soccer

I played organized soccer from age 6-25, including a high school state championship and all-state honors (Farmington, CT). I played several years of Division I college soccer (University of Pennsylvania). More recently, I have coached my son's youth soccer teams (coed), from age 4-8 (Hyde Park, NY).
