## About

Hello, my name is Josh Greenberg.

My tutoring style is centered on meeting students at their current level, and relating new material to what they already know. I build confidence, math intuition, and speed at solving problems with my students.

For the past six years, I have maintained a steady clientele of students in all areas of math, including Algebra, Geometry, Precalculus, Calculus, Differential Equations, and Linear Algebra. I tutor upper level college math courses, as well as physics at both the high school and college level. I also work with clients on SAT and ACT Prep.

Here is my relevant experience:

Professional tutor: 6 years

Tutor at Academic Success Center of MxCC: 3 years

Volunteer SAT Tutor: 2 years

BA in Mathematics from UConn

## Frequently asked questions

### What is your typical process for working with a new student?

The first thing I do is get to know the student. Good communication is essential to improve understanding, and that only starts with a good introduction. Then, I establish background knowledge, what specifically the student is struggling with, and why he or she is struggling. I then work to clarify topics and concepts and improve mathematical understanding.

### What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have several clients who have hired me and seen excellent improvements in their grades and understanding.

Currently, I work at Epic Systems, in their Technical Services Department, in Madison, WI.

I hold a Bachelor's Degree in mathematics from UConn. I worked hard to maintain a GPA of above 3.9 throughout my college career. I enjoy learning new material the most when I think about how I would teach it to someone else. I have been able to put this mantra into action by helping many students with whom I shared classes. I am especially proud of these moments, because it means I had to master the material for the class well enough to teach it to someone else within the same time frame that I had to just learn it.

Before attending UConn, I was a student at Middlesex Community College. I worked in the school's tutoring center. There, I tutored everything from prealgebra to multivariable calculus, and I work with students of all age ranges. I would routinely get students asking for me specifically, and would not work with any of the other tutors available.

My students are guaranteed to have their grades raised by AT LEAST one letter after working with me.

### Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

My standard rate is 40$ per hour. I'm proud of my work and my result, and I'm extremely dedicated to my students, always willing to go above and beyond because I believe in helping them understand mathematics above all.

Along with my tutoring, I also keep detailed records of my lessons to track student's progress over time. Working at Epic Systems, in the Medical records industry, has taught me the value of good documentation, and I apply that wisdom to my lessons. My lessons aren't just about helping with homework. I improve my students' understanding of mathematics as a whole.

### How did you get started teaching?

I began my teaching career by volunteering at my college's tutoring center. I fell in love with tutoring instantly. I started spending all of my free time there, working with students, and improving grades and understanding.

That love of teaching never diminished over the years, and it is something I will always continue to do.

### What types of students have you worked with?

I work with middle school, high school, and college students. Having worked in the tutoring center of a community college, I gained experience working with people as young as 18 and as old as 55.

I can teach any math subject. I have the most experience with algebra, precalculus, calculus, differential equations, and linear algebra. These are by far my favorite subjects to teach.

### Describe a recent event you are fond of.

While working at my college's tutoring center in Spring semester of 2018, I had two students come in every day for help with MATH 095, which is equivalent to prealgebra. They were clearly struggling and worried that they would never pass that class. Through my teaching methods, they both aced their final exams and the class. It was really incredible to see their improvements over the course of the semester. When they started, neither of them could multiply 6x7 in without a calculator. By the end of the semester, they didn't even need a calculator anymore. I was so proud of them.

### What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Most of the time, when a student is struggling in math, it's because he/she is having a hard time understanding the teachers or the textbooks. When selecting a tutor, make sure that he can explain and demonstrate ideas in multiple different ways. Also, make sure that the tutor doesn't JUST to go through problems like a computer. Make sure he/she explains the problems and concepts to you on a deeper level than you would normally expect.

When paying for a tutor, you should not only expect him to go through problems with you, but to also give you a much more thorough understanding of mathematics.
