About Josh

A passionate teacher who loves seeing students succeed beyond their hopes, I thrive on the challenge of coaching students and helping them develop their skills. Along with my graduate degree from a top-tier university, my 20 plus years of teaching and tutoring, and my expertise and teaching experience in areas from elementary science to college English leave me ready to help students succeed in any subject

I have experience teaching at a top-20 university as well as at the high school level, teaching everything from AP Literature to Global Studies. I have taught ESL overseas, too, and have worked with ESL students a great deal, both in the classroom and one-on-one.

As if that wasn't enough I have taught elementary and middle school science, and have tutored in all subjects at almost all levels (math through Algebra II).

I have successfully helped students ace English, math, social studies and science classes, ace the ACT, SAT and GRE, and earn admission to Ivy League schools. I believe in high standards and clear goals, and meeting students where they are at -- starting by skill assessment and then gradual, step-by-step skill building, pushing students to move beyond their current abilities as the right pace to keep them challenged but not overwhelmed. Building confidence along with skills is key to my method, so that students not only have the skills they need but feel comfortable doing the work, and can breathe easy while taking high-stakes tests and completing projects.

I am happy to meet either at the library or coffee shop, whichever is most convenient for you; I do ask that you notify me 24 hours ahead if you need to cancel.

I look forward to hearing from you to discuss how I can provide the help you need!
