After graduating with a BA in English from the University of Dallas and a Master of Arts from the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art, I went on to teach classes of 6-11th grade students at Trivium Preparatory Academy for 3 years in English, Writing, and Math. I also tutored students individually for all sections of the SAT and ACT during my time there, and I have continued to do so for the past year.
I love teaching English and Literature because I have a passion for storytelling, and ...
Joseph is a true find as an ISEE tutor. His clear explanations and ability to distill certain thematic concepts into a secret sauce which my son can easily understand have given my son renewed confidence in his test taking skills. He has an extremely positive and encouraging attitude and is clearly very experienced in capturing the attention of the middle school audience.

My son was very skeptical and hesitant about tutoring until he had his first session with Joseph for ACT. At the end of the session, he mentioned that he would like to work with Joseph since he had taught him reading strategies which helped him analyze passages quickly and accurately with greater speed which is essential for ACT reading test. This is from a person who was not willing to do online tutoring and that speaks very highly of Joseph?s tutoring skills. Joseph has also been very responsive to my queries and concerns. I would definitely recommend him as a tutor.

He offers thorough explanations catered to the student's area of need. I appreciate that he takes time to review my son's area of need before the session, so that he comes prepared, ready to teach the most important tip to my son. Thank you!

He's a great tutor and explains everything to where you get it and it makes sense. He also gives you many tricks to help you finish the test faster and more efficient.

Joseph, has been so patient with my son Joshua. Joshua has a learning disability, and Joseph is preparing Joshua for the ACT exam. Joseph, had also taught Joshua
some different strategies to look out for when taking the ACT. We will continue tutoring with Joseph. And hopefully Joseph can tutor Joshua while he's in college.

After taking some ACT classes with Joseph, I came to love his teaching style. He is often very clear about the topics, and is not afraid to explain concepts again. In addition, he always comes to the lesson prepared with enough appropriate material. Great tutor overall!

I used Joseph to help me prepare for my SAT. We worked on reading, language, and math based skills that I would use to prepare for my exam. I feel as if Joseph was the best choice to help me prepare. He explains things that I do not understand in a way in which I would, and he shows me little tricks and observations I could use to score higher. If searching for a tutor, you definitely cannot go wrong with Joseph.

I took an SAT class at a center and the amount I have learned from Joseph does not compare to the SAT center. He teaches very useful techniques and actually makes the SAT much easier to understand. I highly recommend him and I guarantee he will make the SAT much easier for you to understand.

Joseph is an excellent tutor! He worked with my daughter on a writing assignment that would have taken her weeks, and she ended up finishing it in almost a day! He clarified the task, reviewed her assignment before the lesson and helped my daughter move through being stuck, which made a big difference in her writing self-confidence.
Joseph is well prepared for his lessons, very knowledgeable and intelligent. Joseph is very easy to work with, has great patience and is flexible in his teaching styles and lesson plans. My daughter is looking forward to continue working with him on essay writings and prepping for the SAT test. I wish we found Joseph sooner but we are lucky to know him now. We highly recommend him to other students. Thank you, Joseph!

Joseph M. has been helping my son prepare for the SSAT. In just a few short lessons, he's made a significant difference in my son's confidence level, motivation, and grasp of multiple strategies that have helped him feel ready to take the test on! My son has tried and shifted away from multiple SSAT prep tutors due to changes in his athletic schedule at school. They've all been good, but he's most excited about the tricks Joseph has taught him - especially with respect to a skimming technique that's allowed him to quickly cull facts from test passages in a fraction of the time and with greater accuracy. What's more, Joseph doesn't bog my son down with homework and he actually seems to enjoy the lesson. We'll definitely be circling back to him for the SAT when the time comes.
