A Little Bit About Me

Hello and welcome to Hyperspace! I am a recent graduate of Columbia University where I split my time between the stars and the stage while pursuing degrees in theatre and astrophysics. Equally comfortable and enthused to think about both the humanities and the sciences, I am here to help you evaluate integrals then refine an essay; solve right triangles whilst rehearsing a presentation; explore how the characters of Shakespeare dream big like Einstein; and almost anything else under (or orbiting) the Sun. As a tutor, I will do my best to bring both humor and curiosity to every session because I believe we all learn best when having fun.

Though I am forever a Seattleite at heart, I currently live in New York City where I attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry as Albus Potter in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child on Broadway.

Hobbies: Soccer, Running, Rock Climbing, Music (Piano, Vocals, Guitar), Reading about Space

Testimonials from My Students

We can’t say enough good things about Joel. Our 14yo was preparing to take the ISEE and HSPT for High School admissions. Joel normally worked with older students but thought he could help her out. And he did. After three sessions, Zoe said she was explaining concepts to her fellow eighth graders. After a few more sessions, her teacher asked how she was advancing so quickly. By the time of the  standardized tests, she believed she could, and would, succeed. It proved to be true. Her scores were among the factors that gained her admission to each private school where she applied. Joel gave her skills, yes. But he also gave her confidence in herself. She is a fan for life. As are we.

- Dan J., Middle School Parent

The tutor I worked with (Joel) was very nice and always asked how I was doing. The teaching was also great. [Joel] would explain things in deep detail so that I understood each topic thoroughly.

- Ella S., High School Physics Student

"My daughter attributes her Straight A's in Physics and Calc to the tutoring she has received from Joel at Hyperspace. He's able to explain the concepts in a way that clicks for her. I highly recommend Hyperspace Tutors."

- Patti H., High School Parent

"Taking on Calculus I was a challenge for me, but with Joel's help I felt more secure and confident in the course than I would have if I didn't have him. I appreciated Joel's patience and the above and beyond accommodations that he provided for me in our sessions. I felt like he really took time to understand my learning style, and presented the material in a way that made sense to me. Thank you Hyperspace!"
