Joe is a prolific writer of self-help and educational material and an award-winning teacher of both college and high school mathematics. Joe has worked with students from the kindergarten through university levels and has taught everything from basic reading strategies to complex mathematics. From the seminal collection of verse, Poems for the Mathematically Insecure, to the novel Wiz Kid Algebracadabra series, Joe has won from all over the world unsolicited testimonials to the effectiveness of his teaching methods. The diverse genre of his writings (novel, short story, essay, script, and poetry)—particularly in regard to its educational flavor— continues to captivate readers and to earn him recognition.
With a renaissance approach to learning and with over twenty-five years experience in the science and mathematical disciplines, Joe, through his novel and engaging style of teaching mathematics, has won success for students who attempt to learn this most difficult subject. One of Joe’s principal endeavors is to give individuals---children in particular---the tools and confidence to do basic mathematics. Once obtained, these tools steer students into gradually increasing levels of mathematical study. Ultimately these same students become effective problem solvers with access to many doors of opportunity.
Joe propagates his teaching philosophy through his articles and books and is dedicated to helping educate children living in impoverished countries. Recently, Joe’s material has been implemented by the math and science education foundation in Nairobi, Kenya, as part of a country-wide effort to spur learning incentives in mathematics. Joe makes himself available for speaking, consulting, teaching and inspiration.

My teenage daughter has terrible math anxiety, especially since she's an honors student and likes to always score high on tests. Joe taught her strategies to ease her anxiety and now she's is less panicked the day of the math test.a year ago
very patient with my son who was struggling with 8th grade math. Joe is funny and gets my son to relax and have fun learning. I've used other tutors in the past but Joe is the best.a year ago
very knowledgeable & patient. he explained to my son, different ways of how to solve equations. He gave my son take home work to strengthen what he taught him. He has a lot of resources to assist my sona year ago
Joe helped my daughter understand some difficult chemistry concepts. He is patient and funny when teaching. He also has a lot of tools available in his office, where he tutors, like whiteboard, colored markers, and other stuff. I'm glad I found him.a year ago
