About Josh


Bio

I grew up a classical pianist with a love for numbers. I was an excellent test taker and was able to transition from the piano department to the mathematics department while in school. I've since gone into software and have been involved in many high profile industry projects over the years, including Google Docs and Google Assistant.

In high school, I worked with friends to improve both their grades and test scores. In college, I taught Linear Algebra and Probability, and tutored...

I grew up a classical pianist with a love for numbers. I was an excellent test taker and was able to transition from the piano department to the mathematics department while in school. I've since gone into software and have been involved in many high profile industry projects over the years, including Google Docs and Google Assistant.

In high school, I worked with friends to improve both their grades and test scores. In college, I taught Linear Algebra and Probability, and tutored privately with excellent results. Since graduating, I have used my learning and test taking abilities to move through the software industry and pass the Google interview process. I've coached numerous friends and colleagues into more prestigious and higher paying jobs. Through my professional career, I have still found time to work with younger students with bright ambitions.

I taught Linear Algebra in college.

I received a perfect score in math on both the SAT and SAT II.

I have been a software engineer professionally since graduating college, with some years of experience at Google.

I love to see others learn, and have never had trouble bringing out the potential in others. If you're eager to grow, I can help.

I attended Carnegie Mellon, taking some CS classes there and performing well on advanced CS exams while pursuing a degree in Mathematics. My computer science experience is mostly self taught after school, I have used a strong learning ability to dramatically increase my performance on interviews, eventually landing at Google. I was able to switch teams to Assistant before being promoted based largely on merit of work. Have drilled CS fundamentals several times over the years in preparation for interviews and these have almost always gone very well.

Knowledgeable Tutor Offering Sage Advice

Josh was a fountain of knowledge. I originally intended to have him help me with just with algorithms and data structures for technical interviews, but he got me to think about so much more, including what kind of company I wanted to work for, the size of the company, how much money I want to make, and much more. He then sent me a curriculum to study and offered other advice on how to strengthen my knowledge. I highly recommend Josh for your technical interview prep.
