About Joshua

I graduated from Eastern Michigan University in December, 2015. I have a secondary provisional teaching certificate from Michigan in grades 6-12 and a history and social studies endorsement (RX) 6-12. This endorsement includes Economics, Geography, and Civics/Government.

I have completed student teaching experiences in 6th grade Social Studies, in a 10th grade cross-curricular, one-to-one classroom, and for my full semester, 10th grade U.S. History and 12th grade Civics. The progress the students demonstrated and the enthusiasm they brought to class every day inspired me. I found great joy in this experience and realized the gratification I find in challenging students to expand their knowledge and in having them also challenge me. My current occupation is an Intervention Specialist at a local middle school, servicing students in the Special Education program in the areas of Social Studies, Math, and ELA.

The subject that initially got me excited to learn was Social Studies, which is a lot of reading and writing. In order to read primary sources from different eras I had to pick up on context clues and expand my vocabulary. My Reading and English score on the ACT was excellent and I have continued to improve through much practice; for example I have graded essays in both middle and high school, as well as written college-level material myself.

Reading and writing well have opened up so many doors for me. I know it can for you as well!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 Reading

I scored a 33 on the Reading portion of the ACT, and a 29 on the English portion. In addition, I teach reading fluency, comprehension, and English at a local middle school.

English

I acquired a 26 in English on the ACT and teach grammar and reading fluency using the o-g tutoring system.

Reading

I am currently an intervention specialist (6th-8th grades), teaching 8 students with a variety of abilities how to improve their reading fluency, comprehension, and written expression. I am also taking a Reading and Phonics Instruction class at OSU.

Social Studies

I have an endorsement from the State of Michigan to teach Integrated Social Studies that expires on 6/30/2022. Integrated Social Studies includes World/European History, Civics/Government, Geography and Economics. I have led multiple units on each subject in the middle and high school classroom. A hobby of mine is to read historical non-fiction books. I have both the experience and the passion in these subjects.
