My name's Joey, and I am about to start my PhD at the University of North Carolina - Greensboro. I received both my Bachelor's and Master's degrees from The Juilliard School in NYC, where I also worked for four years as a Teaching Fellow (TA) for the school's Ear Training Department. I love working with students who aren't afraid to think outside the box, and I always do my best to make sure a student feels secure and confident, no matter what the subject. IB Diploma Recipient. Former part-time student at Columbia University.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I've always enjoyed making the learning process fun. I've also had the pleasure of working with a lot of gifted students, so my teaching style has always revolved around thinking outside the box and being creative with how I learn and teach things.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

The way I get a feel for things is basically asking them what they know and what they need a lot of help on. A lot of the time, what the student already knows can help them with a topic that they don't understand. My job, then, is to show them that link.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

I think students learn more if they truly enjoy it. Like I said before, my main goal at the end of the day is to show whoever I teach that the subject is fun!

If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?

I think one of the best solutions to challenging subjects is to take things one step at a time. It may seem like a slow process, but along the way, maybe we'll discover helpful, personalized ways that help them to learn.

What strategies have you found to be most successful when you start to work with a student?

The key for me is always being patient. At times, I want to hit the ground running, but I think being patient and learning alongside a student is more beneficial than being super efficient with work.

How would you help a student get excited/engaged with a subject that they are struggling in?

I think the way I have fun learning tough stuff is to think of it in terms of my own life! So I try to do that with students: trying to make things close to what they like.

What techniques would you use to be sure that a student understands the material?

Repetition is key! And repetition that keeps them engaged is the best. Preparing problems that put a smile on their face, and choosing excerpts that they truly enjoy.
