My name is Josh. I currently live in the Williamsport, PA area and am available to tutor in the surrounding areas.

Josh has been super fast to reach, very clear, and able to talk things through. He is really well disciplined with monitoring time which I appreciate since time is a commodity at our house. He is extremely prompt, good with feedback, and even handled my chatty daughter really well, keeping her focused and ensuring the time was productive. We have a noisy, busy household and he stays focused during the entire lesson and doesn't waste a moment. He is flexible in meeting our needs and has that rare quality of genuinely wanting to see someone else succeed. Most importantly, I appreciate his ability to work on teaching my daughter How to learn the material rather than just reviewing answers as right or wrong (which is all she gets in school). I would certainly recommend him for anyone who truly wants to succeed and is willing to work hard at learning the material.
My son needed help with Geometry and Josh was great in figuring out the areas that needed more attention. He was very thorough and well-organized and gave our son excellent tips on study habits and time management. We were only looking for someone on as as needed basis but would definitely recommend him based on our one session.
We were lucky to find somebody with Josh's expertise. He took a very complex chemistry lesson and helped our son break down the process and closed all of his knowledge gaps. He made the appointment easy and worked with us on timing and location. Josh is a great tutor combining deep subject matter knowledge with a patient, logical approach to learning.
We have had a very positive experience. He is always pleasant, professional and very knowledgeable about the subject matter. This tutor is very experienced and is very good at explaining things.
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.
I was an academic coach/tutor for students with disabilities at West Chester University where several students had ADD or ADHD. I also was part of the Big Brother, Big Sister Program in State College, PA and my little brother whom I had for over 3 years had ADD/ADHD. I am very patient and understanding with people suffering from ADD/ADHD. I am a 2010 Graduate of The Pennsylvania State University, Main Campus with a B.S. in General Science/Pre-medicine and a Minor in Psychology.
I have tutored students from elementary school through college. My experience tutoring elementary and middle school students at the local State College Area for students that were looking for extra help was instrumental in the beginning of my tutoring career.
I took the MCAT and scored a 28. I have used Kaplan and Princeton Review materials and have some available to help tutor others. I have taken courses at Penn State University that have prepared me for the MCATs and through the Premedicine Honors Society up there I was able to attend seminars regarding the MCAT's as well. I am a 2010 Graduate of The Pennsylvania State University, Main Campus with a B.S. in General Science/Pre-medicine and a Minor in Psychology.
I use Microsoft Outlook everyday where I work and am very good with computers and Microsoft Suite as a whole. I can easily teach anyone that wants to learn the ins and outs of this program.
I have taken nutrition courses at Penn State University, University Park, kinesiology courses, and several relevant biology courses which stress the same material. I have received only A and B+ grades in those courses.
I know that I am qualified to be a tutor in study skills. I have experience as an academic coach/tutor for students with disabilities at West Chester University where study skills were a big part of what I stressed. I have also tutored at Penn State University, State College Area High School, and independently and have always made study skills and time management an important component no matter what subject.
