I am young enough to remember what it was like to have problems understanding the topics I teach.  It is just that sense of revelation and insight that has led me to become a teacher.  I have studied how young students think and learn, and I use that knowledge to develop effective methodologies specific to each students' learning styles.

A Brief Introduction:
My name is Joe Oettinger, and I am the Pascack Tutor.  I was raised in the Pascack Valley, and attended local North Jersey private schools.  I ultimately received my Bachelor of Science, in Environmental Science--Soil & Water Chemistry, from a prestigious NJ university.

After college, I attended a training program to obtain an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) Certification.  Shortly thereafter, I put my knowledge of emergency medical care to work, and I became an instructor for the American Red Cross.

Over the course of seven years, I taught thousands of students valuable lifesaving skills in classes such as CPR, First Aid, Babysitting, Lifeguarding  and Preventing Disease Transmission.

During that time, I also got involved in tutoring middle and high school math, science, and SAT prep. I enjoyed my tutoring experiences so much, that I decided to attend Graduate School to get my Master’s degree in Science Education. I have since begun my career as a certificated NJ high school science teacher.

Recently, I competed my studies in instructional supervision, and I now possess a Supervisor certification.

As a hobby, I have studied music and have played guitar for more than 20 years. At various times, I am a professional musician.  Also, I have studied martial arts and self-defense and have attained the level of red belt in tae kwon-do

Rate: $50/hour

I am also a technology guru who can help you to learn computer skills and how to use a number of software packages.
