Personal Statement

I began as a tutor in high school working with friends and family in need of assistance. What began as a way to help blossomed into an exciting and invigorating experience. Tutoring has allowed me to fundamentally change the life of students, forever imbuing them with the skills and knowledge to succeed. My desire to teach is only exceeded by my desire to see my students succeed.

My tutoring methods vary as students vary. Each student requires a unique approach and I carefully cultivate met...


I was quite nervous to meet a stranger and admit my level of math incompetence. However, Joseph had a great sense of humor. By the end of the hour I felt comfortable and confident I had made the right choice to pursue tutoring with him. He is knowledgeable and it was obvious he knew the material very well. I would enthusiastically recommend him to anyone seeking to improve scores for the quantitative section of the GRE or other standardized exams.

Joseph has been very helpful tutoring my son in AP Calculus. He is very patient and is able to explain the math problems so they are easy to understand. Thank you, Joseph!
- Lori A. from Columbia, MO
Helped keep me focused and explained in depth what was going on and why things were occurring. Will be back for tutoring in the future.
- Clara R. from Columbia, MO
Joe and is very clear about what needs to be done to improve. He gives good feedback about my son's progress. I highly recommend him.

Joseph was extremely knowledgeable about Chemistry and helped me prepare for two Chemistry 1100 tests. This subject is totally foreign to me and I have always struggled with it. From meeting with Joseph just twice, my test score went from a 62% to a 95%. He was very patient with me and broke everything down into step-by-step demonstrations to help me better understand. He is knowledgeable enough to come up with new equations and questions for me to practice with, and in my opinion was more helpful than my professor. Very thankful that I found him!

Joseph taught me Calculus very well. He helped me review study guides and homework very well. I can definitely say he's the reason for me being able to pass the class. Although, sometimes he goes a little too fast without realizing it.
- Jeremy S. from Columbia, MO
Joseph worked with my son on study habits and PreCalculus. He asked a lot of questions to really get to know him and what his goals are. My son said Joseph was easier to understood than his instructor. I feel comfortable that working with Joseph this year will be worth the time and money.

Joseph worked with our daughter for 8 tutoring sessions this last semester. Before we found Joseph, my daughter was extremely frustrated, losing confidence and we were unable to help her at any appreciable level. It was becoming a daily frustration and one that was having detrimental impact to my daughter's health due to stress. Fortunately, we came across Joseph's information and agreed to move forward. Joseph has been excellent from a parent's perspective. He is punctual, communicates very well and has been a huge help in getting our daughter the help she needed. She has expressed her appreciation for Joseph's tutoring style and patience......and has repeatedly stated that "he is awesome."
- John B. from Columbia, MO
I basically come in with a list of a few topics I'm lost on, and he's able to thoroughly explain each to me in a way that i understand. In addition, he gives me practice problems and works them out with me until i'm confident enough to do them on my own. I always leave each session feeling like I learned a lot more than i did going in.
- Sue W. from Dayton, OH
Joe helped me review for my final calc exam less than 3 weeks before the exam and had helped boost my confidence of solving problems and getting through my steps in everything that was reviewed! Highly recommend!
- Rishi T. from Tempe, AZ
Joseph is an awesome tutor! After one session with Joseph, I felt like i had the confidence to complete the rest of my college algebra class with at least an A. He is very good at breaking down and explaining problems the way you can best understand them! very polite and cool as well.
- Michael S. from Columbia, MO
Joe taught me the basics of calculus and explained it in a way that made it easier for me to remember. Joe brought my grade up by nearly 7.5% in about 4 days. I would recommend Joe to anyone, he was that great to work with.
- Shea C. from Columbia, MO
Joe did a great job helping me understand calculus in a way that made things much more simple to comprehend.
- NIck H. from Columbia, MO
I was very glad we found Joseph as a tutor! He was able to help my son salvage his "D" in AP Calculus when we were close to giving up. He helped my son learn enough to bring his grade to a "B" by then end of the first semester and to maintain that grade through the second semester as well. We found Joseph is youthful enough to effectively communicate with a teen, and able to present the information in a way that made more sense to my son. He also helped my son re-examine his own study habits and provide us with helpful tips and resources. He encouraged my son to do his best and continue to try when there seemed to be very little hope, and was flexible around some of our scheduling challenges. My son's thoughts about Joseph include: He was patient with my shortcomings, was able to look ahead in terms of progress, worked well with teens, has a lot of experience, and can look at problems in a new way/ flexible. We would highly recommend Joseph as a tutor.
- Travis S. from Phoenix, AZ
We enlisted Joseph R's help with calculus 2 for our daughter. I must say that without his help, this class would have been unmanageable. Many classes at Arizona State University are self-taught these days, but math should not be one of them. Unfortunately, some professors have forgotten how to teach or why the got into teaching in the first place, to the detriment of the student. Without Joseph's help, our daughter would not have made it with her professor. Joseph brought a professional, compassionate, positive learning experience to our daughter and basically taught her the majority of the class. He was able to break it down efficiently and actually teach the material. He was very responsive and flexible with tutoring times as well. We HIGHLY recommend Joseph's services because he knows his stuff.
- Kendall S. from Gilbert, AZ
My son has been receiving math and chemistry AP tutoring from Joseph, and we couldn't be happier. He is extremely accessible even with a short notice and most of all he is very knowledgeable and clearly communicates the concepts and learning points to my son. Since we started tutoring with him, my son has a much better and deeper understanding of the course materials. We are extremely happy with Joseph, and I highly recommend others to check him out as well.
- Seigyoung A. from Scottsdale, AZ
My son really feels that Joseph is a great tutor. Even though this year is essentially done, I have already asked Joseph if he will be available next year. My son thinks that Joseph is good at relating to him on his level & explains things in a meaningful way. He has been reliable & I expect that I will call on him again the next school year when my son is a senior in HS. Thank you for your help, patience, & guidance.
- Michelle M. from Gilbert, AZ
Joseph tutored me for my CP chemistry class. He took me on short notice and he was very punctual. Joseph took lead of the appointment and I liked that he guided me through the examples without actually doing them for me. He definitely knew what he was talking about and left me with great notes. He's the first one I'll contact if I need help again!
