About Joe

I have 10 years experience as a mathematics tutor, and 9 years experience as a Junior High Math Teacher. I have a BA in Mathematics from UW Madison and a Master's in Teaching from National Louis University. I have worked as a tutor with children as young as 8 years old, but my main expertise is in junior high & high school subjects like pre-algebra, algebra 1 & 2, geometry, trig, pre-calculus, as well as working extensively with high schoolers prepping for the ACT/SAT.

I am new to Milwuakee area; having moved here from North Shore area in Chicago to be with my fiancée. I have a passion for all things mathematical and absolutely love helping students learn. I am highly energetic and enthusiastic about my work and I would say my tutoring method is very student centered - my methods vary as my students and their needs require. I believe I have strong diagnostic skills - in my first session I conduct an informal "interview" and try to quickly get the root of any troubles and also seek out strengths.

I could ramble on here, but suffice it to say that in my years of tutoring I have yet to encounter a student who, with their hard and focused work and with my bit of my guidance, was unable to conquer whatever math troubles he or she was experiencing. I infuse in every student the confidence that THEY CAN DO THE WORK. Thanks much - hope to hear from you soon!

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.

ACT English

I think even a few short prep sessions in a relaxed environment in advance of the test can be quite useful in building confidence and discussing effective test taking strategies along with working specifically on the subject.
