About Joseph

My goal is to provide a convenient and helpful service.

I am happy to meet students online using Wyzant's outstanding online tools, but I will also meet with students in the comfort of their own home or a neutral place like the library in Cedar Park or Starbucks.

I'm a full time tutor committed to my students 9a-9p / 6 days a week 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.

I don't always start exactly at the scheduled time, but I leave myself about 20 minutes wiggle room in case one student or the other needs more time. 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. This is especially common with students who like to work online.

I do charge for last minute cancellations. The charge is $15.00 for cancellations 36-24 hours before a lesson and $30.00 for same day cancellations, but there is no charge for occasionally cancelling 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 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 teacher at Crockett High School/Austin ISD and had an opportunity to teach computer math and become certified in mathematics. Over time my academic interests changed from science to technology to mathematics. After three years of working as a part time Wyzant math tutor, I quit my job as a technology teacher with Bits, Bytes and Bots and started working full time with Wyzant math students.

I've been working full time with Wyzant since January of 2014. Being able to fully commit my professional time to tutoring WyzAnt students allows me to immerse myself in the study and teaching of math and science and gives me the privilege of working with many great people. I hope to continue my work with Wyzant well into the future.
My goal is to provide a convenient and helpful service.

I am happy to meet students online using Wyzant's outstanding online tools, but I will also meet with students in the comfort of their own home or a neutral place like the library in Cedar Park or Starbucks.

Seeing great results — Joseph has been tutoring my daughter in Algebra 2 for several weeks. He is helping her to fill knowledge gaps (things she missed in Algebra 1) and increase her understanding of algebraic concepts. We have seen GREAT improvement in both her grades (from failing a quiz to a 98) and her confidence in her math skills. After every tutoring session, she says "that was REALLY helpful."
