"Robust Math Teaching Methods"
My name is Joel and I have taught high school math for 6 years. I have a BA in Applied Math and an MA in Secondary Math Education.

Joe has been very helpful to my son during the time that he has been tutoring him for math. Previously, my son had no interest in math at all. Joe has been patient and has tried different avenues of attracting my son's interest. He also sends him additional math problems via email free of charge to give my son some extra practice.

I can recommend Joe to other parents out there who are looking for a tutor is all about helping your child succeed!

Rob is very laid back, and makes learning statistics fun. He was very patient as well as helpful in terms of teaching and identifying what I needed. My situation is college level beginning stats, but as a mother of three teenagers, he would have the demeanor and knowledge to help them as well.

"Business, Health Care and Engineering Statistics"
Find statistics challenging? I get it. To begin with, it's math (which is enough for many people). But beyond that, it is very different from previous math classes (like algebra, geometry, and pre-calculus).
That said, I enjoy working with students as an instructor and as a tutor. I hold a Masters in Applied Statistics and have used these methods throughout my career. I have also worked as an adjunct professor teaching Algebra II and Statistics in the classroom. I am very comfort... ... More
