Hello, my name is Joe. I am a graduate of Columbia University in New York City. I have a BA in Math, Physics and Anthropology as well as one year of Post-Graduate study in Linguistics.

I have assisted many college-level students with preparation and format of written materials, including the correct methodology of writing papers (use of Outlines, etc.) When teaching, I emphasize vocabulary building – including reading comprehension, reading out loud, writing and spelling – whatever the objectives of the students are (grammar, punctuation etc.) I have assisted people with presentation skills such as public speaking, with heavy emphasis on proper diction and pronunciation. I try to make students aware that clarity and conciseness are of paramount importance.

Joe is a master of English literature and history and an excellent instructor.

He served as my advisor when I was a college student at Columbia. Joe was also the key advisor for my student organization at Columbia, a literary society. He is personable, engaging, and impactful for his students. He stands out in any room and is unforgettable. Through Joe, my knowledge of literature and history vastly expanded outside of what I could have ever gained from a classroom. Joe's instruction also vastly improved my critical thinking skills.

Any student would be lucky to have Joe as a tutor or advisor. Do not miss out on this amazing opportunity. I highly recommend Joe's services.

Best,
Keianna

I was so pleasure, to be a student of him. He is a pretty motivated teacher. I used to learn English with him for 8 to 9 months. And I got a plenty of different skills, like As; reading, writing, listening and especially speaking. Now I become a good one at English spoken mostly as native speakers. Thanks so much dear!!! 😘😘😘
