About Joseph


Bio

My goal is to provide a convenient and helpful service. My joy in my work comes from seeing students understand something for the first time, like how to pick, arrange and plug in the correct equations to create a solution to a physics problem!

I'm a full time, online tutor committed to my students 9a-9p / 5 days a week (Monday-Thursday and Saturday) and after 2:00 on Sundays.

I do not have a set session length. For each student, I try to schedule enough time to cover that student's needs...

My goal is to provide a convenient and helpful service. My joy in my work comes from seeing students understand something for the first time, like how to pick, arrange and plug in the correct equations to create a solution to a physics problem!

I'm a full time, online tutor committed to my students 9a-9p / 5 days a week (Monday-Thursday and Saturday) and after 2:00 on Sundays.

I do not have a set session length. For each student, I try to schedule enough time to cover that student's needs most of the time. For most students, I start out scheduling an hour-long session and we adjust the amount of time I schedule as we grow to better understand the student’s needs.

In addition to regular weekly lessons, I'm always willing to try to squeeze in an extemporaneous lesson in on another day of the week or another time of the day, as needed. Sometimes I try to re-arrange my schedule to better fit the needs of one student or another so students’ should feel free to switch things out as we go.

I do charge for last-minute cancellations. The charge is $19.50 for a same-day cancellation, but there is no charge for occasionally canceling a lesson with proper notice. Cancel for any reason - no need to hold a session if it isn't needed or wanted that day!!

I hold a Texas Teaching Certificate, in Mathematics and Composite Science, for Grades 6-12. I've held various positions in Austin area schools including Math Teacher and Science Teacher. The schools and districts I've worked with include Austin ISD, Leander ISD, and University Charter Schools.

I have an Associates Degree from Austin Community College (ACC) and a BS from the University of Texas (UT). At ACC I was primarily interested in the Oracle database. At UT my interest was primarily Nutritional Biochemistry.

I started tutoring mathematics for the first time as a service of the National High School Honor Society at Westlake High School (back in 1985). I became interested in teaching mathematics professionally in 1994. At that time I was working as the Physics teache

My son want to keep learning!

Joseph is a good Math tutor. I searched through many tutors and found him. My son enjoyed working with him. Very helpful! My son want to keep learning! I am so glad about this.

Kate, 9 lessons with Joseph

Mr. B. is awesome!!

Mr. B. is always on point. He gives “educational advice” so my child can work the problems. She is always extremely confident and excited about continuing and succeeding on her own after a lesson.

Successful lesson!

My 16-year-old hates getting tutoring lessons, so the fact that he liked Joseph was a big deal. We're going to continue lessons because he seems to be able to explain things clearly to my son. We've had other tutors, but my son liked Joseph better! My son was more engaged with him than with other tutors, and that meant a lot to me.

Chris, 2 lessons with Joseph

The progress maker!

He brought out a structured approach to feed the nomenclature in a systemic fashion. Very adept at keeping on task. Very happy as a customer! Brought a positive mood and a patient approach to teaching. Easy to see him again and helpful throughout!

Noah, 2 lessons with Joseph

Highly knowledgeable and fast response

Joe is extremely helpful and his explanation on algebra 2 has help my son in such short notice. He is fast at responding and is willing to make changes in schedule if needed. My son thought he wouldn’t be able to catch up but in just only 3 lessons, he have learned and understand more than being in class for weeks. I see that my son is more confidence and is not afraid to try new concepts.
