My name is Joseph and I founded the tutoring network you see here. From 2004 to 2007 I was a faculty math tutor at Marymount College in Palos Verdes. My specialty was special needs students who had a lot of trouble learning math. While other tutors sometimes got frustrated or didn't know how to bridge the communication gap with these students I found that I really enjoyed working with them. I had ADD myself as a kid and often did not understand what the teacher was saying. I believe this helped me to learn to break down complex concepts for my own understanding, with the result being that I could explain difficult concepts to my own students in easy to understand ways.
In 2004 I began tutoring privately in the cities of Redondo Beach and Manhattan beach. That first year was one of learning for me; learning how to communicate difficult math concepts, and learning from parents that many tutors are not effective. I sought to learn what makes one tutor effective and another not effective.
There were many factors such as explanation skills, knowledge of the subject, and overall personality. A person who is empathic and patient by nature will often help by simply knowing when to teach and when to be quiet as the student is figuring out a concept. An instructor's quiet encouragement will also bolster the confidence of the pupil. A tutor lacking in these communication skills can have the opposite effect. I highly encourage anyone reading this to be selective in your choice of a tutor, regardless of who you decide to go with; ask a lot of questions, make sure the tutor's personality is good, and make sure your student is happy!
Each tutor's full bio can be seen linked to the left. As a general rule tutors for K-7th grade tutor everything; while for 8th grade and beyond they are specialized by subject.
