Josie

I graduated from Eastern Washington University located in the beautiful town of Cheney, Washington. While there, I received my degree in Education with an endorsement in Physics and a minor in Africana Studies. After graduation I substitute taught in multiple high schools and middle schools. At the same time, I taught an intro to rock climbing class at night to people of all ages. Last year I moved to the wonderful state of Colorado and taught intervention math to freshman in the Montbello area. Even though I can tutor a variety of subjects (Algebra 1/2, Geometry, Physics, and Chemistry), I am most passionate about Algebra 1 and Physics. I love teaching Algebra 1 because it is the firm foundation of anything higher in math. If you struggle with it, the rest your math career will be a struggle. It is the best feeling when my students finally have that 'ah-ha' moment and understand how to manipulate an equation. Physics is my other passion because it explains how the world works! You want to know how fast a car was going when it drifted around that corner or understand why there is absolutely no sound in space? I’d love to explain it to you. Everyone learns in different ways. For some it’s auditory, some it’s visual, and for most it’s kinesthetic. I want to figure out how you learn and go from there. If you need to make angles with your body to know the difference between acute and obtuse then let’s do it! If we need to write a song with vocabulary for you to remember the terms then I am in. I want learning to be fun because that is how you are going to retain information. Outside of work I love rock climbing, acro yoga, 'upcycling' old clothes, watching movies like Lord of the Rings, and attempting to draw/paint.
