My name is Joseph Tillotson. I began tutoring as a math faculty member at Marymount University in Palos Verdes. Many of my students had special needs and were quite far behind in their math studies. It was amazing to see their confidence grow once they had better explanations of the concepts they were studying.

I make a point to find tutors who are patient, empathetic, and fun! A person who has these traits will often help by simply knowing when to teach and when to take a step back and let the student figure things out. I've observed that a student and his/her tutor much be in synch for progress to occur.
