Hello Potential Students!

I've always believed that even the most complicated mathematical concepts can be broken down into simple, straightforward, and logical steps that anyone can understand. I'm here to show you that path forward. It's time to stop being afraid! I will help you face your math fears, fill the gaps in your knowledge, and get you back on track.

I have been tutoring math and physics for a number of years now. I have a degree in astrophysics and currently work as a patent attorney where I detail complicated new technologies for the public on a day-to-day basis.

Outside of work, I have a passion for helping kids tackle difficult subjects and raising potential in the classroom. I'll make sure you have the foundational knowledge to tackle difficult homework problems, and prepare for tests as they come around. Like everything, math is a skill that is developed with practice. I'll make sure that you have the tools to practice the right way.

Hello Potential Students!

I pride myself in being able to break down difficult skills into basic steps that anyone can master. The hard part is knowing how to break down those skills, but you can leave that part to me!

I've taught music and piano for a number of years, and also tutor students in difficult high school subjects such as match and physics. I have a degree in astrophysics from the University of Maryland, and now work as a patent attorney where I work to break down and detail difficult cutting-edge technologies for the public.

Outside of work, I really enjoy making and teaching music as well to people of all ages. I've specialized in jazz piano, but also really enjoy playing modern pop/rock. Students I teach piano to learn how to not just play their favorite songs, but also how to break them down and understand how they were put together. This enables students to learn how to learn, and if they dare, to start making music of their own.

See you in the classroom!

Josh has been great with our 12 yr son. First time doing online lessons so I was skeptical but He has always been prepared for every lesson and every lesson has been very productive

I took lessons from Joshua for three months while my normal piano teacher was on vacation for the summer. In those months, my skills improved tremendously, leaving my teacher in awe of how much I improved during his hiatus. Josh worked with me on developing my technical skills and knowledge of music theory and was incredibly successful in helping me build on my previous skills. Joshua was understanding and patient as a teacher, helping me as I struggled through challenging pieces and encouraging me to continue practicing and not give up. Overall, Josh was a great teacher and I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a piano teacher!

Josh is a really great teacher - he has a structured plan he follows, he answers questions well, he cares about your goals, he is patient, and he's pretty funny too! I've been progressing faster than I imagined through weekly sessions with Josh and always can't wait for the next one!

Josh gave our son piano lessons, and he was fun, creative, and always prompt. Would highly recommend.

Unlike the piano lessons I took as a kid, I actually look forward to my weekly piano lessons with Josh! Josh is kind, friendly and has the unique ability of translating difficult tasks and music concepts into digestible chunks. Before we got started, Josh took the time to really understand my goals, and has adapted our lessons accordingly. As an adult rediscovering piano, who is more interested in song composition and music theory than in perfecting technical ability, Josh has been the perfect teacher. It’s only been a few lessons and he has already armed me with the tools to play some of my favorite tunes on the piano. I highly recommend Josh to pianists who are looking for a fun and personalized approach to learning music.
