Hello! My name is Josh and I am a full-time faculty member of chemistry at the University of Minnesota.

I have been privately tutoring/teaching since 2006 in various capacities and I have been a college faculty member since 2016 after completing my PhD in Chemistry. During my graduate education, I spent lots of time tutoring students, working as a TA, and recognizing my passion is in teaching, which led to my eventual career choice.

My approach to tutoring is to not only make sure you unde...
I?ve worked with Josh in both organic chemistry 1 and organic chemistry 2. His schedule is very flexible, whether scheduling a last minute session or a lesson a few weeks in advance. Josh is patient and great at explaining all aspects of the material. He helps put the information together. I highly recommend meeting with Josh!

I worked with Josh for second semester Chemistry and it was a really good experience. He helped me learn all the important concepts and made it easier for me to grasp the material the my own professor couldn't. I'm working with him for Organic Chemistry too. Looking forward to it.
- Sajid M. from Scarsdale, NY
Josh is such an awesome tutor and really helped me understand organic chemistry! He is super patient with me and really made sure that I was learning the material. He is super caring and was very flexible with scheduling. I would definitely recommend Josh to anyone for chemistry, truly knows what he's talking about, I probably wouldn?t have earned an A without his help!

This was a huge help. We worked on the spreadsheet that contains my financial planning. Josh clearly knows his stuff, and working with him was a great experience.
- Walter L. from Bronx, NY
Josh is an incredible tutor! He will always find a way to break down complex topics into small chunks. He also breaks down mechanisms into simple patterns and helps you find connections between all the reactions you are doing. He is very patient, kind, and cheerful! He is also very flexible with scheduling and always found a way to make time for me. He has helped me go from a 42% on one test to an 89% on the next! I couldn't recommend him more highly.
- Meghna A. from Minneapolis, MN
My tutoring session with Josh was very helpful. My session was better than any session I have done at my University. I will definitely use Josh again. I also am very grateful that he was available on such a short notice.

Our daughter's Chem Tutor, Josh M, was phenomenal! As a college Chem professor, we couldn't have asked for a more experienced and knowledgeable tutor. He was flexible with scheduling, ultra reliable, and put our daughter at ease from Day 1. Great experience - Great Tutor!
- Tiffany B. from Forest Hills, NY
My son was struggling in high school sophomore chemistry honors. In a short period of time, Josh was able to give my son the tools, background and knowledge to earn an A minus in the class. Josh knew when to support, when to push, and when to let my son take the lead to build his confidence. Josh was flexible and accommodating to schedule tutoring sessions to suit our son?s exam and homework schedule. He went beyond our expectations and even worked in a tutoring session for the final exam during his airport layover. Josh was great to work with and I highly recommend him for chemistry tutoring. He will be your best chemistry tutoring decision too.
- Mari-Paule A. from Belvedere Tiburon, CA
Josh was able to help me with a pressing research problem far outside the standard chemistry tutoring he normally does. His long experience as a professor really shines through!
- Robert M. from San Francisco, CA
Josh is an excellent tutor and highly recommended. He helped me throughout chemistry, explaining concepts to me and worked through questions I needed help with. He has incredible patience and always makes himself available.
- Michelle K. from Brooklyn, NY
Josh is an excellent tutor. I would highly recommend him to anyone. He definitely knows his math and science. He worked with my son, assisting him with both honors precalculus and honors chemistry. He is a very good teacher, and explains difficult concepts very well, without over-complicating the subject matter. The time and money for and an hour or more with Josh is well worth it. He helped my son gain his confidence back in these challenging classes. My son is actually enjoying these classes again, instead of dreading them. Josh is very flexible with his scheduling, and does his best to accommodate. Josh is very professional, kind, friendly and patient. This was our first time using a tutor, and I am happy to say we had to look no further. Josh will definitely be our go-to for a tutor in the future. Thanks for all your help, Josh!

We went over a lot of biology parts of my organic chem class and he helped so much. I was able to receive an A- with his help! I would definitely recommend him to anyone feeling extremely confused in a class.
- Arghawan P. from Washougal, WA
Josh tutored my daughter (sophomore in highschool) four times to help preparing her for finals in chemistry. He was able to quickly establish a great working relationship with my daughter and tap into where she needed support. He is warm, supportive and excellent in explaining complex topics. My daughter feels like the few lessons made a big difference in how she was able to understand and digest the material. We highly recommend Josh!
- Erica F. from Belmont, MA
From the student: Josh helped me with General Chemistry for the spring semester. He reliably answered any questions I had. Josh provided clear and concise answers in response to any concepts I struggled with. He was very helpful with test preparation as we went through practice exams step by step.
- Reshmi S. from Trenton, NJ
Josh helped our son review and learn Chemistry material in preparation for the Chemistry AP and SAT subject test. We feel Josh prepared our son extremely well, especially in the short time available. Our son found Josh very thorough and patient. We highly recommend Josh as a Chemistry tutor.

Helped with chemistry. Very informative and easy to understand. Josh was approachable and available during my free hours. Josh was patient and helped me understand the material.
- Sandra R. from Las Vegas, NV
Josh was helping me review for an upcoming stoichiometry test and was very patient with me as I worked through solving problems consisting of Avogadro's number and other various topics. He was patient and explained every problem with ease. Overall a really good experience.
- Olivia C. from Pacific Palisades, CA
Throughout my tutoring experience with Josh, he encouraged me to learn tough material through patience and kindness. He really takes the time to make sure you understand completely before moving on. If you don?t understand, he has other ways to explain the material to suit you, perfectly. He exhibited everything I expected in a tutor and exceeded my expectations. He was a joy to work with.
- Karly C. from Shelton, CT
Josh is an excellent organic chemistry tutor and is highly recommended. He is patient and clear in his explanations. Class materials are easier to understand and retain working with him and we?ve even been able to work ahead on occasion.
- Samantha S. from Minneapolis, MN
Josh proofread my manuscript. It is a peer review paper for a scientific journal. He corrected grammar and gave suggestions. Good communication. We talked on the phone. Highly recommended.
