About Joseph


Bio

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....

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.

Thank you

We had a positive first experience with online tutoring in general and with Joseph in particular. Precalculus has been challenging for my daughter. He got right to work helping her prepare for a test. She was visibly relieved by the end of the session.

Krista, 2 lessons with Joseph

Very clear explanations

He really helped me with understanding concepts and knew the material very well and could offer clear explanations immediately and was very patient.

Mary, 2 lessons with Joseph

Very knowledgeable, positive and patient

Joseph was very familiar with the material my son needed help with. He was able to walk him through it. Though my son has some work to do in order to grasp the material, Joseph was very patient and positive.

Amiee, 1 lesson with Joseph

Good teacher, patient

Joseph has been very prompt in responding to all my queries, and has left a good motivational impression on my son. Looking fwd to more sessions

Sreevathsa, 13 lessons with Joseph

Very patient and knowledgeable

Thank you Joe for giving us answers on building past math skills to help with the current skills needed in algebra 2. We appreciate your extra homework to help with this challenge and your detail on the problems to look at later for help.

Christopher, 7 lessons with Joseph

Experienced, organized and diligent tutor

Joseph is clearly a well qualified and super knowledgeable tutor. My daughter has been exploring some hard subjects in calculus this year, and I can see a clear confidence boost in my daughter after she had a few sessions with Joseph. And it was clear to me that Joseph was always well prepared coming to each session and taught in a very structured way, finishing with additional practice questions. Joseph earned our trust in guiding our daughter through advanced math study.

Zheng, 8 lessons with Joseph

Knowledgeable and patient

My son is very happy with his first class with Joe, very patient and explain very good, he got 90 in the final quiz of Algebra I coming from a 68! Looking forward to see how much improvement he can get...

Andrea, 7 lessons with Joseph
