I have been teaching Algebra and middle school math for 4 years in Camden, NJ. My experience includes classroom teaching, after-school homework help, and one to one tutoring. I frequently work with students far below grade level and close education gaps. I have also worked with accelerated groups in Camden with students that have gone on to receive scholarships and success at highly accredited local high schools.
My strength in tutoring is using vocabulary and phrases for the students to read and understand the material and feel a greater confidence in their work. My end goal is for the student to have the ability to articulate the process and the reasoning back to me using a vocabulary they feel comfortable with.

Josh is a fabulous tutor. I would recommend him to any students struggling in algebra. I was in algebra concepts in college. I am absolutely horrible at math and I personally hate the subject. He made it so much easier to understand. His teaching methods and his “tricks” to finding answers to certain problems are extremely helpful. He is able to give that one-on-one reinforcement that you can’t get out of a professor to reinforce the lessons that are tough. I passed my math class with an extremely high B. If I need to take any other math classes I will absolutely request his services.
Josh has helped my sons grades and confidence. I would highly recommend. Josh is friendly patient and knowledgeable. Great job!
Joshua has been working with my daughter for a few months now. He has a very easy demeanor that put her right at ease. Each session takes her to the next level of comprehension because Josh is very skilled at building on what she knows and showing her how to apply that knowledge to the next topic. He is a skilled and gifted teacher who works very well with students one on one.
Josh explained how to complete Algebra equations in a thorough and efficient fashion for our 14 year old son. He did not just give the answers, rather, he had my son try to work out problems on his own, and when our son stumbled, Josh explained how the problem should be worked out. We were very impressed by Josh's knowledge and ability to teach.
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.
