I am a retired Naval Officer and former UNIX Computer System Administrator and programmer. I hold a Master of Science Degree in Operations Research, a Master of Science Degree in Computer Science and a Master of Arts Degree in Education (Mathematics 7-12).

I am a full time community college instructor and a former high school and middle school teacher. My specialty is in the key Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) subjects that are so critical to success in today's world. At the high school/middle school level, I taught all math levels to include Calculus. I also taught AP Physics, AP Statistics and AP Computer Science. At the college level, I teach Introduction to Computers using Linux, Programming and Logic I & II using Java, Web Design, Business Analytics with Excel, and Introduction to Microsoft Office.

I was the Chess Club moderator at a 6 -12 private school in the Albany area and taught beginning and intermediate chess.

My focus is always on the needs of the student. I am available for a one time session or for periodic help throughout a school term. I am able to help students with specific goals such as improving test scores or completing major projects. I can also act as a primary instructor starting with the basics in a subject and going as far as the student desires.

I teach a range of individuals from high school and young college students to older adults continuing their education after time away from the academic environment. I look forward to assisting you in achieving your goals.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Joseph was very knowledgeable about the uses of Excel for business and also very patient. He explained each process, what it was for and the steps to get there. I will definitely ask for his help in the future.

Gabrielle, 1 lesson with Joseph

Very thorough and interactive

My son has worked with several tutors in the past and finds Joseph to be most engaging. My son is trying to get a jump on advanced trig for next year we are confident that once a week with Joseph will provide a solid foundation. Joseph is patient and can sense my son's learning style. We are very happy. Thanks Wyzant !

Cathy, 11 lessons with Joseph

Recommended Tutor!

Awesome tutor. Very knowledgeable! Only 4 tutoring sessions and I've learned more than I have in my 5 week class. Definitely recommended.

Kari , 15 lessons with Joseph

Excellent and thoughtful

I learned more in one hour with Mr. Joseph than I did all week in math class. He just explains things really well.

Freddy, 25 lessons with Joseph

Great Tutor

In just three weeks time, Joseph helped my son go from a failing grade on the common core geometry exam to a passing grade on the standard Regents exam. Without his help, I have no doubt that my son would be in summer school right now. Joseph was able to clarify the key concepts of geometry and help my son gain confidence in his own ability and knowledge. He pushed my son hard, but not beyond what Joseph recognized that my son was capable of doing. While he already had a very busy schedule, Joseph was able to accommodate my request for a significant amount of hours each week. He was flexible and a real pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Joseph as a tutor to others.

Kelly, 7 lessons with Joseph

Knowledgeable

Reviewed and explained problems in detail. He was understanding and showed me easier ways to do problems. He even made up some of his own problems for me to do so I could figure it out on my own.
