Joel: AP Calculus & Precalculus

AP Calculus & Precalculus Tutor

Background
Hey! I completed my undergraduate degree in Mathematics and Biology in Luther College in Iowa. After a handful of years in the workforce, I decided to get my master’s degree in mathematics with the hope of teaching at the college level. Unfortunately, my graduation in 2020 coincided with the onset of COVID-19, resulting in the cancellation of the teaching jobs I had been offered . This unexpected turn of events led me to a tutoring position, where I discovered a newfound passion for working with high school students. I’m now pursuing my initial teaching license and master’s degree in Education here in Minnesota.

Free Time
I enjoy anything active and outside: ultimate, sand volleyball, going to the gym, boating, or even replenishing energy by photosynthesizing on a beach. Despite my intense love for sports I do have a hidden “nerdy side” of playing PC games. And unfortunately when the weather is bad, Netflix is too hard to ignore!

Goals
My goal in life is to be a lifelong learner and to always dream. With regards to education my goal is to help students surpass whatever they think they’re capable of. Too often people sell themselves short and I think all students are capable of more than what they say.
