About Joseph

I have a lifelong love for learning, and to pass that on is the greatest gift that I can ever give. I am a graduate of the State University of New York as well as the City University of New York. I have learned that it is through hard work and dedication to the final goal is what makes one a success. As a teacher for the State University of New York I have had hundreds of successful students complete my courses. I have also mentored honors students for successful presentations in the humanities and in art history.

I specialize in teaching Art History as well as reading and writing. Whether we are working at successfully completing a High school AP course or college level art history course I work at giving challenging homework and assignments to strengthen your skills, after every lesson. One of my goals is to challenge the student but not to overwhelm them so they can be as successful as possible. I have learned different strategies to help students succeed. I treat each student as an individual.

There is no one technique that works because each student has a different learning style. It is important that the tutoring approach be holistic in nature.I will also provide feedback through assessments and progress reports. I am my own strongest critic and hold my self to the highest standards, therefore I always ask for feedback on what you might need as a student.

I try to be as flexible as possible with my schedule however I do request a 24 hour cancellation policy. What I also request is that there is a nice quiet area that can be used for study and that the student has a good support system. I am also free travel to the location of the students choice. You must feel free to ask me any questions on how to make the student successful.

I look forward to hearing from you and working with you to achieve your academic success!

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.
