Hi! My name is Joe, and I am currently a full-time college basketball coach. In addition, I also work as a private tutor, working with students in various levels of middle school and high school mathematics: algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and more. I have classroom experience -- I taught 9th grade and 12th grade math as a student teacher -- as well as tutoring experience -- I worked with a high school student one on one for two years. I have my masters degree in education as well as my bachelor's (cum laude) in mathematics.
For the last six years, I have worked full time as a college basketball coach. I have found many similarities to teaching on the court -- in fact, I like to think that coaching is actually teaching basketball. This experience has helped me find differentiated ways to help young men get better at basketball.
My greatest asset is my enthusiasm. I have great energy and passion, and I like to make learning fun -- whether it's math or basketball. I am a very personable young man, and I relate to young people very well. I would be very enthusiastic about working with you! Hi!

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

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.
