Fun Fact: I believe that lots of math terminology and vocab is unnecessarily complicated, and prevents students from understanding the actual concepts!

Josh graduated from Oberlin College and Conservatory with degrees in math and piano performance, and has spent the last five years teaching math at the Ecole d’Humanité, an international boarding school in Switzerland. When tutoring, he likes to focus on creating a safe, comfortable and productive learning atmosphere with his students, so that the anxiety and frustration often associated with math can be removed from the equation. He particularly enjoys
the way that mathematical ideas build on each other, and believes that breaking complicated concepts down into simple, step-by-step processes can make math fun and accessible to anyone! He is a passionate hiker who loves finding new, beautiful places in nature, and also likes to play soccer, chess, and piano whenever he gets the chance to.
