Hi! My name is Joel and I am a sophomore attending the University of Texas at Austin (UT), pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and a Business Certificate. Hook 'Em Horns! My goal in tutoring is straightforward: teach my students how to be effective and successful learners. Every student is one of a kind, with various talents and strengths that define them. To build on each student’s potential, I firmly believe in tailored, personal strategies that facilitate self-confidence and constructive habits. I explain material in creative ways to identify how my students learn best and help my students to form structured study plans for use outside of our lessons. At the start of every lesson, I discuss with my students how to exceed their short term objectives and contribute to their long term goals. As a tutor, I am committed to building a responsive, feedback-based relationship in which my students can turn to me for help and are able to receive learning in whatever form they need.

I specialize in the fields of Math and Computer Science and have the qualifications to match. I received a 5 on the AP Calculus BC and AP Computer Science Exams, and have scored an A in every math class from elementary all the way through college. I have excelled in university courses like Differential and Integral Calculus, Probability and Statistics, Discrete Math, Data Structures, and Computer Architecture as well. Throughout high school, I volunteered as a math tutor while leading a State Champion and World Semi-Finalist Robotics team. Currently, I serve as a Peer Academic Coach at UT, helping students to develop and implement study strategies for Time Management and Planning, Improving and Maintaining Motivation, Effective Study Strategies, Effective Concentration During Lectures and Reading, and Planning for Tests and Final Exams. My service in the Singapore Armed Forces as a Platoon Sergeant has also provided me with invaluable years of teaching experience with literally hundreds of students from a vast number of bac

Patient tutor

Joel was quick with his response to tutor and very patient during the lesson. This was the first lesson for College Algebra and I will be signing up for more lessons with him.

Can explain the same topic in different ways

I'm taking an intro to programming class as a way to gain an understanding to the software projects I'm involved in at work. As someone with a medical background, learning how to write code is not something that comes naturally. Joel is able to explain each topic thoroughly and he checks for understanding often. Best of all, he can think of different ways to explain the same thing, which really helps to increase my understanding of the subject. Overall, Joel is very knowledgeable and is a good teacher.
