About Joseph

Let me tell you about myself. In my younger teen years, I struggled with school. I didn't get the A's I knew I could get. I felt as if school was just an obstacle I wanted to get over. After I graduated, I decided to work for an after school program at LES. A year later, I knew I enjoyed helping people learn how to read and write. I decided to attend SUNY Sullivan while working for the after school program. With my time at SUNY Sullivan, I studied literature. I became a writer and took advantage of it. I mainly took interest in poetry and short stories.
After graduating and working with a different after school program agency, I decided it was my time to go away to College. I chose to attend SUNY Oswego. For a semester I Majored in Adolescent Education 7-12 English. I became a practicum student in a 6th grade class room at a Middle School. I observed 20 hours total through the semester and found the real reason I liked to teach. It was to inspire our youth to reach heights that they thought were impossible. After my semester, I knew becoming a teacher was not capturing my full interest. I liked to reach people in a subconscious level and I always excelled in my creative writing, so I switched my major to Creative Writing with a concentration in Screen Writing and Poetry. I fell in love with these subjects but during my semester, I fell ill and had to return home early. I am now taking a semester leave to focus on my work and other inspirations in life. I help people at New Hope Community as a DSP. I work on my poetry, short stories, and screen writing/video game writing all while waiting to help tutor, because I want to help you find your inspiration in life. But we can't do that without the use of reading and writing, so I would like to help you with that.

I have many years of experience acting on stage as an adolescent and did my share of acting and public speaking in college. I excelled in my speech class, trembled when I first read my poems in front of a class, to speaking with confidence in front of an Honors Symposium. I ranked 3rd in my SUNY Sullivan's Shawc poetry competition and had three of my poems published in SUNY Oswego's college newspaper. I have three years' experience in helping Elementary students with ELA. I have studied writers from William Wordsworth and Edgar Allan Poe to J.R.R. Tolkien and W. E. B. Du bois. I have written from proper English to scripts that are spelled how they must be pronounced for the sake of the characters use of slang or cultural identity.

If you are interested in not just looking at the words that are in the English language but what is around them, I can surely help you. If you want to read more fluently or want a better understanding of the English language, I can help you. If you want to excel and get ahead, I can assist you. If you want a tutor that can better you as a writer, reader, and speaker; contact me to learn more and schedule lessons.

Autism

I have been employed at New Hope Community almost a year now as a DSP (Direct Support Professional). I work with 5 individuals who are diagnosed with Autism. I assist them throughout their day to help them build different skills they can use in every day to day life.
