About Joshua

I have a Bachelor's degree in Music Education and teaching license, and have been tutoring for over 15 years.

I love helping students develop new skills. I also love helping people discover new things about themselves that help them learn more effectively and have more engaged and satisfying lives.I specialize in helping students learn their own unique learning process, and build success through their strengths. Developing tangible skills is the goal and I work to develop the individual learner.

I have tutored music, instrumental performance, Spanish, math, and several other academic subjects. I have taught these subjects in English, Spanish, and mixed Hebrew, and I have taught them here in Seattle, Ecuador, and Israel.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your current studies and preparing you for continued 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.

Composition (Music)

I have a degree in music and took classes in Music Composition. During that time, I learned how to analyzed scores and I composed a bassoon quintet. Also, I am very familiar with the nuances and voicings of each instrument in a band or orchestra.

Elementary Math

I understand how to help young people understand and gain new knowledge. I help students figure out answers for themselves while also teaching them reasoning skills, how to use their imagination, and also how to consider the student's resources to help them find the answer.

General Music

I have a Bachelor's degree in Music Education and an expired teaching license. I was academically prepared to teach General Music professionally during that time. I also have taken music lessons on various instruments for over 20 years.

Guitar

I am a highly skilled teacher and I have been playing the guitar for 15 years. I also have a bachelor's degree in music education.

Songwriting

I have been a singer-songwriter on acoustic guitar for 15 years. I know the music theory behind songwriting and am highly practiced in creating guitar parts, vocal melodies, and lyrics that are all solid enough to stand on their own. The combination of these skills makes me the ideal songwriting tutor.

Spanish

I received excellent grades in Spanish classes throughout public school and college. I have lived in Ecuador and immersed myself in Spanish. I have also traveled to Spain where I spoke Spanish and got around like a native.

Study Skills

So much of learning is learning how to learn. After high school, I was in a car accident and I had to learn study skills in order to excel in college. I earned a degree in teaching in the process, and not only have experience tutoring, but have experience teaching students how to practice between sessions.

Tennis

I have played tennis for over 25 years. I played USTA tournaments when I was a teenager and was recruited to play tennis for a few division 3 colleges. I was a Pro at a swim and tennis club and I have taught private lessons throughout my life. Additionally, I have a degree in education and am experienced in teaching to students' needs, rather than a particular agenda. I have helped youth players and I have helped seniors.

Vocabulary

I am a professional Speech and Hearing Therapist.
