About Joe

I have taught high school sciences (IPC, Chemistry, Physics) and college algebra and math classes over the past decade. I have also taught college Physics courses while a graduate student. I have chosen to focus on high school teaching for one simple reason - that is where the problem lies! Too many students are not prepared for any of the highest-paying college degrees (13 of top 15 degrees have the word "engineering" in them and the other two require high levels of math!). I have successfully opened the doors to these careers to students who never thought they could achieve them.
My approach to teaching achieves results because I stress those activities that are proven - muscle-memory, rhythmic memory mnemonics, relevance. As a former working professional in Physics, I can attach the real-world relevance to each lesson.

I will be glad to put you in touch with my former students, who are currently conquering college using my techniques and approach to learning. Many of these students still stay in touch with me in person and through social media. Please consider my skills in tutoring to ensure that your educational dollars reap the rewards you seek.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

TAKS

I have taught high school for the past 7 years to Juniors and Seniors while TAKS was the prevailing standardized exit test. Under my guidance, students who failed the TAKS test their sophomore year were able to pass the exit test on their first try.

I teach test-taking skills that not only prepare the student for TAKS, but for the "money" tests as well (ACT and SAT).

I was the first science teacher to achieve a 100% passing rate for students taking the exit-level science TAKS and maintained that distinction for 4 years. I was asked to tutor summer sessions for students who failed the spring administration for two years.

Great hands-on tutor! — Dr. K helped me go over some concepts missed by me in General Chemistry, and really helped demystify much of it. He was a great help to me and I hope to work with him again as I prepare for finals. ...
