About the lesson
My methodology is heavily dependent on the student that I'm working with. I alter my teaching strategies based on what I observe from my students. I'm a very flexible tutor, and I will find the method of teaching that is best for you.
I generally ask my students questions to get them to demonstrate their understanding. I always have my students explain to me what they know. I firmly believe that one of the best ways to learn is to teach to someone else.
I also emphasize building up my students' confidence and ability to trust their judgement and intuition. No matter how much tutoring I provide, I won't be there for the test, so it's important for students to learn to operate independent of me.
Precalculus & Calculus
College / University
I have been tutoring for over three years, and in that time, I have taught hundreds of students, in several different settings.
I have worked in a community college's tutoring center. I give one-on-one lessons. I have given group lessons. I have been a TA for a differential equations class. I even helped my classmates and peers when I was in college. I also have experience with SAT test prep. During college, I volunteered my time to students in underserved school districts to help them prepare to take the SAT. I have worked with high school students, college students, and adults in all levels of math from prealgebra to calculus and beyond.
One of my algebra students saw her grade go from a C to an A in three months. I helped one of my adult students pass an exam to be admitted into the naval officer's training corps. Everyone who came into the tutoring center I worked in saw improvement in their grades and understanding of math. My high school calculus students have all earned a 4 or 5 on their AP exams. Everyone I tutored has been at a different level of math, and I adapt my lessons accordingly.
I have had the pleasure of having Josh as my tutor for all 4 of my high school years and have been thoroughly impressed. Josh was able to adapt his style of teaching in a way that would best help me to learn and is always willing to change things up to make sessions feel fresh and not repetitive. Beyond all that Josh is a very kind individual. Multiple times I have had to cancel on short notice and Josh is able to understand and set up new sessions quickly. It has been an amazing 4 years I spent learning from Josh and I can't wait for the many new things I will learn from Josh as I enter college.
Josh was an amazing tutor with my son. He is very patient and knowledgeable and my son really enjoyed learning from him. I would highly recommend Josh for any math tutoring needs.

My standard rate is 40$ per hour for online lessons.
My first lesson is free if it is an online lesson.
For in person lessons, my standard rate is 50$ per hour. This is because in person lessons have travel and car maintenance costs for me, whereas online lessons do not have those costs.
