Tutoring With Josh: Where the alphabet and numbers can all be friends

Methodology

My teaching method is to approach the student's needs with patience. Perfection takes time. We will go over the students work to identify areas of struggle, then work through practice problems side-by-side to confirm understanding of the thought process. Any additional practice problems or review for tests are offered as well.

Background

I love algebra (I know, odd). I am currently a Biomedical Science Masters student, with aspirations of going to Medical School. Nothing makes me more happy than being able to teach someone something new. This is my first rodeo working as a tutor, but trust me, we will make it past your homework so you can get back to playing Fortnite.
