Josh is a Preferred Tutor who has worked with over 100 students since he joined Applerouth in 2016. He has worked with students on a number of standardized tests, including the SAT and ACT, SAT Subject Tests, and a wide range of AP subjects. A National Merit Semifinalist, Josh finished his high school graduation requirements early so he could spend his senior year as an exchange student in Argentina. He then earned a degree from Kenyon College and spent a year as an apprentice at the National Theater Institute. Here at Applerouth, Josh works with students who are preparing for standardized tests - like the SAT, ACT, PSAT, ISEE, and SHSAT - as well as students who need academic support in a variety of courses, including APs. When it comes to his tutoring style, Josh says "From my work as a mentor, director, and improviser, I've learned to be a careful study of people. Tutoring always starts with gauging both how prepared a student is, and how they are feeling about the test. I use that to tailor my approach, academically and emotionally, to each individual student and their goals." When he isn't tutoring, Josh has worked and trained in the threatre world. He also likes to camp, hike and longboard along the Hudson River. He has also performed as a clown in NYC - he is an expert juggler!
