About Joe

I am a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin with a degree in Psychology and a certified Math teacher with classroom experience at the middle and high school level.

I have also been offering tutoring services for six years now from elementary level math up to college algebra. I love guiding students to discover mathematical understanding themselves, to build up confidence, and provide foundational skills. It's extremely rewarding to me when a student who previously hated their math class or believes they are dumb begins showing me A graded test papers.

From 2nd grade math through College Algebra, I am highly experienced in working at all levels. I've tutored elementary, middle and high school math. My personal favorites to teach are the areas where students often have the most trouble: Number sense, Fraction concepts, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Pre-Calculus. I also love writing geometry proofs!

While I am a math professional with high standards, I am not the typical "scary math teacher". My educational background is in Psychology, and I personally understand anxiety in general (test anxiety in particular). One of my primary focuses isn't simply math content, but student comfort. I aim to minimize anxiety, I have a positive attitude, and I try to work with the unique learning styles of each individual student I work with. My goal isn't just to help you pass a test or a class, but to cultivate a love for learning and mathematics that will last a lifetime.
