General Studies Tutor With Specialties in Psy., Math, & Science!
My name is Joshua, and if I had to pick three words to describe myself, they would be: Motivated, Personable, Professional. I have three degrees, two of which are psychology specific. I can, however, tutor in a multitude of subjects and have done so for many years while attending Wright State University and Sinclair Community College. These subjects include but are not limited to: Math (Algebra-general, college, Statistics, Geometry, Basic); Science (Biology, Chemistry, Computer,...
My name is Joshua, and if I had to pick three words to describe myself, they would be: Motivated, Personable, Professional. I have three degrees, two of which are psychology specific. I can, however, tutor in a multitude of subjects and have done so for many years while attending Wright State University and Sinclair Community College. These subjects include but are not limited to: Math (Algebra-general, college, Statistics, Geometry, Basic); Science (Biology, Chemistry, Computer, Psychology); Social Studies (History--American/World); Computer Literacy (Microsoft Office); Paper Writing; Vocabulary; Presentations/Public Speaking; Research/Scientific Methods & Design; General Study Habits.
Some important things to know about me are that I'm a student and bookworm at heart. I have such a thirst for knowledge that if I don't know the answer, I will research it to find out. I also encourage the people around me to do the same as it brings the level of mutual interests to the forefront. I have begun my graduate program at Mercyhurst University-Erie, PA. I hope one day to be working in the Intelligence Collection and Analysis field.

Our family liked the patients Joshua showed with teaching our elementary child math. We saw improvement after only the first lesson.Cindy, 1 lesson with Joshua
Very informative and patient.
I cannot believe how much fun it's been to learn something new. In just 5 weeks I've accomplish more than what I'd expected. Josh has worked with me on the pace of my studies. I was stuck last week; I'd tried everything and could not figure out what I was doing wrong. He came an extra day to help me work through the problem. He is there to help all hours of the day and gives a quick response to questions asked. This has boosted my confidence level tremendously! I am 48 years old and only took a few college classes. I was very fearful of going to school so my husband decided to find me a tutor. We were impressed with what Joshua's reviews had to say and thought he would be a good fit. At our first meeting I was thinking I knew some things, but quickly realized that before I could start with Excel I needed to back up and work on Microsoft Office skills first. Joshua was very encouraging when I realized my lack of skills. After a few weeks I have finally gotten into the Excel. Joshua has given me a lot of good study skills. He reenforces to me to "make the computer work for me so I can work less". I am finally getting it. It's been exciting to learn. I've had to start slow and keep working my way up. I am able to start incorporating what I've learned and apply it into our business. He's been an excellent tutor from the start, I just had to build my skills in order to feel like I had accomplished what was needed to get started into Excel. Thanks Josh and WyzAnt for helping me feel confident in what I am learning!Jane, 8 lessons with Joshua
Josh has the patience of Job. No matter how many times he had to repeat the statistics terms he was always pleasant. After a few visual problems, I was able to catch on quickly how to write out the problems and complete them. Josh also relieved my stress about doing statistics problems for good!Susan, 1 lesson with Joshua
Invaluable asset for the student in need!
Josh is an incredibly knowledgeable tutor! I had been beating my head against the wall for days, but Josh made it so much simpler than I thought it was. He was not only able to show me the in's & out's of my math but was also able to show how it works with today's technology. His enthusiasm is catchy too! I know now what he means by being a student for life. By making these subjects simple he was able to help me understand, complete, and advance my understanding and eagerness to do more of the material required by my instructor. All in all, I would highly recommend Josh for college math and especially in conjunction with computer needs, because he's patient, knowledgeable, and he challenges his students to think outside the box by way of patterns and shortcuts that are not taught in mainstream education. He's an invaluable asset for the student in need.Amanda, 1 lesson with Joshua
Organized and Professional
Joshua is tutoring my 5-year old Chess. He is very organized and professional. He prepares a lot of material before the class, so it makes the tutoring session very efficient. He always provides us an outline during the class and a detailed review/feedback after class, which helps my 5 year old stay focused and make solid progress.HAO, 8 lessons with Joshua
Patient to work with and very easy to contact by phone or email.
Josh is a patient tutor who works step by step to answer questions and provide an understanding of the material you are working with. Whenever I am struggling to understand the material he patiently explains or provides examples which he works me through from start to finish. He is also very easy to reach by phone or email if you have questions about the material.Jason, 7 lessons with Joshua
Awesome! He was so patient and worked with my schedule!
Josh was awesome, he was very patient, broke things down, even drew me pictures when all else failed. He worked with my hectic schedule, both in person, via email, phone, and even txt. I can not say enough good things about the help he provided for me in a time I was struggling. He had a great attitude and made the hard stuff fun! Even when I was at my limit, he would lighten mood and get me back in the swing! Would recommend him every time!Angela, 3 lessons with Joshua
Joshua tailors his lessons to the student needs and learning style. He is organized, patient, and very effective. My daughter enjoyed doing the work and has gained confidence in her mathematical abilities.Amy, 15 lessons with Joshua
Great Tutor... knew his stuff.
Joshua R was able to patiently help me understand the math issues I was facing because I was having difficulty not consulting the examples. I need to get a better understanding of the material, procedurally, and he helped me do that. I would recommend him to anyone in the future for Algebra 1 lessons... he certainly knows his stuff. :)James, 1 lesson with Joshua
