About Joshua

My passion for teaching comes from a deeply rooted love for helping others achieve their goals through education. As an undergraduate student at the University of Texas at San Antonio, I received an A in many historically difficult courses such as Calculus I and II, Probability and Statistics, Calculus-based Physics I, Biosciences I, Genetics, General Chemistry I, and Organic Chemistry I. In most of my courses, I helped other students succeed academically. I have experience working with multiple students and working one-on-one.

As a learner, I recognize that textbooks provide organized and detailed information for each subject. As a teacher, I utilize textbooks in the learning process. I simplify the lesson plans in textbooks and outline a conceptual understanding of mathematical or scientific concepts. This allows learners to grasp the content and to be able to think critically about it. With a conceptual understanding, the need for formulas and equations can be identified. Since most understanding comes from the ability to recall and critically think about information, I guide students through questions and problem solving in order to best develop their knowledge of concepts.

In order to teach effectively, I often ask for feedback. If a student or a parent is not completely satisfied with my tutoring, I will not bill them.

I have a 24-hour cancellation policy. If a tutoring session is cancelled, I will offer a makeup session.

I hope that you will consider me for tutoring services and I look forward to helping you with your academic success!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Biostatistics

I took 2 semesters of Bio-statistics related course work at the University of Texas at San Antonio. The first course was Calculus for bio-sciences. The second course was Statistics for biological applications. I received an A in the Calculus course and a B in the Statistics course. I also took a Statistics course for engineers. I received an A in that course.

Chemistry

I got an A in General Chemistry I and Organic Chemistry I & II at the University of Texas at San Antonio.

Genetics

I took Genetics at the University of Texas at San Antonio. I was one of the few students to receive an A in the course. I helped several students in the course, so I have some experience in teaching the subject material.

Organic Chemistry

I took Organic Chemistry I&II at the University of Texas at San Antonio. I received an A in both courses. In both courses I helped students understand the course material.

Statistics

I aced Probability and Statistics. I helped several students in my class. I met with several students individually and helped them understand statistics.
