My formal education is in Physics and Mathematics. While earning my Ph.D. in Mathematics at Penn State, I taught over 30 math courses. Later as an Instructor and Assistant Professor at Fitchburg State College, I taught another 32 math courses in a variety of areas. Then I moved into administration at other schools serving in several capacities

In-person lessons

Mr. G was very good at getting our grandson's attention and keeping him on the right track. Grandson was very pleased with what they went over and will probably set up additional appointments.

Joseph G. helped a significant amount in the areas I was struggling and brought me up to speed on 2 weeks worth of material in a 2 hour period. Wonderful teacher; would certainly recommend to anyone struggling with mathematics.

Joseph was able to explain the material thoroughly making sure I understood every step. He was able to identify my mistakes to tell me where I needed improvement. He is a very good tutor and just as polite! I would recommend Joseph as a math tutor.

Joseph has made my 16 year old daughter's life a lot easier with trig and calculus, as well as algebra concepts. He is very knowledgeable and, more importantly, able to communicate his knowledge to a teenager. Patient, kind and considerate, he is willing to try different methods and ways to communicate ideas. He has improved my daughters tests from Cs to As. Joseph has also improved her attitude towards math in general, and she is actually excited about her class. I feel lucky and privileged to have Joseph's assistance as my daughter prepares for university. Highly recommended to anyone struggling with high school or university level math!

As a person pursuing a bachelors degree in civil engineering, and being out of high school for over a decade, my math skills were sadly lacking. Joseph was able to provide me with a strong fundamental base, in a short amount of time. His knowledge of mathematics and physics is potent, and he delivers the information in a way that makes it intriguing to continue learning.

I sought a tutor knowing I needed a great deal of help, and I feel I found the best one available for these subjects. If a math or physics tutor is what you need, Joseph can guide you to your goals. His flexible schedule is accommodating for people with limited time (as was my situation).

Mr. G provided math tutoring to my son, a Penn State freshman, in December of 2013.

My son reported to me that Mr. G was an excellent tutor, as he was patient, knowledgeable and very thorough in both his preparation and teaching style.

I would not hesitate to employ the teaching skills of Mr. G in the future.

Test Preparation:

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

As a college teacher I have taught many of the components of a typical discrete mathematics course including set theory, functions, equivalence relations, combinatorics and probability. Moreover, my specialty in mathematics was logic which is relevant to discrete math. After a career as a math teacher, I feel that my level of mathematical sophistication is sufficiently high to help me master topics in discrete math that I've not previously encountered.

I hold a Ph.D. in mathematics. The title of my dissertation is On Cylindric Algebras of Structures. The topic is a branch of mathematical logic. I also taught several courses in elementary logic and set theory at Fitchburg State University.
