About Joseph

Greetings to all. My name is Joe, and I taught middle school math in the Bronx for 31 years. The bulk of my career was spent at JHS 145, which is located in the Bronx. At JHS 145, I was nominated "Teacher of the Year" for District 9 for the 1993 school year. For the last 10 years of my career at JHS 145, I served as the staff developer for mathematics. As staff developer my duties included the training and supervision of all new teachers, designing a remedial study program for all students, the introduction and implementation of all citywide and district-wide initiatives, etc. I basically served as the head of the math department for the final portion of my career. I received my BA from Pace University and my MA from Herbert H. Lehman College.

Mathematics, of course, can be a very unusual subject, some of us love it, and it comes easy to us. When I am working with a student, young or old, I respect the fact that no two students learn the same way. This is key to quality learning. I have also found that it takes great patience to tutor an individual. For many of us however, math can be similar to a foreign language. I've always thrived with students who have a bit of difficulty with "seeing" math. I have always taken a relaxed approach with students who encounter difficulty with math. We attempt to break down each problem to it's component parts, so that it actually becomes fundamental math. I have had great success with students who were labelled "borderline", and I look forward to my next challenge.

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.

ACT Math

I am thoroughly proficient in algebra (elementary & intermediate), plane geometry, and trigonometry.

I spent the last 10 years of my career as the head of the math department. The bulk of my duties were in preparing the staff as well as the students for the NYS Math Exams, therefore I am well-informed on the difficulties that many middle school students have with exams.

Algebra 1

I taught middle school math at JHS 145 in the Bronx for 31 years. At JHS 145, the eighth grade "honors" class was permitted to take the Algebra Regents Exam, although it is normally taken in the 9th grade. I taught this Regents class five times, so I am thoroughly familiar with the math content for algebra 1. Actually, I find this math quite enjoyable.

Great tutor!!! — Joseph was a great find. He was patient with my daughter as well as encouraging. He seemed very familiar with the topics and how my daughter was being taught by her school teacher. He was very accommodating with day and time for the lesson as well. Thanks Joseph! ...
