About Joshua


Bio

I've loved math since first grade and have tutored students in just about every capacity since 2008. As a high school student, I tutored high school students in geometry, precalculus and Algebra 2. I have volunteered, taught in classes, lower income, higher income ISDs, tutored privately, one-on-one, small groups, large classes. Test tutoring, subject tutoring, life coaching, executive functioning for students with differential abilities. I love empowering students. What I enjoy the most...

I've loved math since first grade and have tutored students in just about every capacity since 2008. As a high school student, I tutored high school students in geometry, precalculus and Algebra 2. I have volunteered, taught in classes, lower income, higher income ISDs, tutored privately, one-on-one, small groups, large classes. Test tutoring, subject tutoring, life coaching, executive functioning for students with differential abilities. I love empowering students. What I enjoy the most about it, candidly speaking, is when I am able to connect with students on a personal level. I take pride in working with students in, not a transactional way but in a personal way. My #1 goal is to grow their ability and confidence through real understanding of the content. I focus on problem solving rather than rote memorization, because by building up a student's ability to think critically, he or she will be able to approach new problems with confidence and efficiency.

I hold a degree in Business Administration from McComb's Business School, one of the top ranked in the nation. I have taken advanced math courses throughout my college career. Afterwards, I worked as a corporate data analyst in Houston for a national company headquartered in Boston. I decided to make a change in my life and have since worked as a math teacher for underprivileged youth in Houston and San Diego. I have extensive experience with test prep for the PSAT, ACT, and SAT, with a perfect 800 Math on the SAT.

I have taught English to high school students for five years. In preparing students for grammar, rhetorical analysis, and reading comprehension, I start by assessing the individual student's aptitude and skillset. I then focus on building up the student's knowledge of the fundamental kinds of problems they can expect, followed by improving accuracy. Finally, it is imperative for students to practice exams under test conditions.
