About Joshua

I've always had a fondness for math, dating back to 3rd Grade when I would challenge my teacher to math games. I wanted to teach as a profession but after two years of education training, I dropped Education from my degree and studied Applied Mathematics instead. I yearn to learn and teach math as much as I possibly can.

I have a Bachelor's of Science in Applied Mathematics. I was a tutor for the math department at my college.

Math is like art; in it's truest form, it can be beautiful. It can also be daunting. I am here to help foster the love for math that I have lived with all my life in others, and maybe help you make that grade.

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.

Algebra 1

I was the tutor for the math department for my college, where I often worked with the entry level algebra students.

In the past few years as I've been tutoring professionally, Algebra is one of the most common subjects that I am asked to help with. It is also probably my favorite math to work with.

Algebra 2

While most of my tutoring in college was involved with lower level maths, even entry level college algebra runs into high school level Algebra 2 topics later in the semester, which is actually when I had the most pupils to tutor.

Geometry

In High School, I struggled with Geometry. In college, I learned a new side of Geometry, and it's been fun to work with ever since.

Geometry is the first subject I tutored in professionally, and it's personally my favorite subject to teach because it's very visual and fun.

Prealgebra

I worked with many students at my college who were basically learning prealgebra in order to pass their exams to start in the education program. I also commonly worked with the entry level students.

Trigonometry

Trigonometry is the one subject that most students struggle with, but is actually much easier than almost anyone expects. It's just Algebra meets Geometry, and working with it last year with two of my students reminded me of just how fun it can be.
