Joy is exceptional. I have had her now for a semester and a half for college cal and she beats any other tutor I have ever had. Definitely keeping her through graduation!
"Awesome teacher. Easy to work with."
- Richard, Hazel Green, AL on 3/27/15
Joy is a great tutor and really knows how to simplify the complexities of calculus. I am working on a masters degree and had not taken a calculus based class in 20 years. She really helped me work through remembering all the rules and shortcuts. Without her help, I would not have gotten an A in my calculus based probability and statistics course.
"AWESOME TUTOR!!! "
- Connie, Huntsville, AL on 3/19/15
Joy is a treasure! Our son is enjoying working with Joy, and his attitude after every lesson is the best evidence. They are working on Honors Geometry, and he has done excellent!! She is very caring and truly cares about his success and that he understands each lesson. His test scores have improved and his confidence. We look forward to Joy working with our son in future math classes. I know with her help he will continue to excel and enjoy success with all his future classes. Great decision to work with Joy!
"Helped improve daughter's math ACT score"
- Doris, Huntsville, AL on 10/12/14
I contacted Joy after reading many of the positive reviews on WyzAnt. I was looking for a tutor to work with my daughter specifically on ACT math prep. Joy did a great job pulling specific areas of the test that she needed practice on. She also gave her tips and tricks to help with the math portion. She listened to our needs, evaluated my daughter's strengths and weaknesses and came up with a plan tailored to her needs. My daughter came home after taking the test and said several of the questions were easy to her because of what she had gone over in tutoring and she felt the tutoring had helped. The best testimony is that her math score was boosted 4 points which gave us the overall ACT score we were striving for. Thank you, Joy!

Joy really knows her stuff! She goes the extra mile to ensure you know every resource that's available to assist you. She's very detailed, and her tutoring style is exceptional!
"Great tutor who really made a difference"
- Shannon, Owens Cross Roads, AL on 6/4/14
I had searched multiple options to find a tutor in Geometry for our sophomore. Joy was able to explain formulas in such a way that it finally clicked. His grade improved by two letter grades, with an A on the final. She was patient and thorough - and, she was willing to review homework and practice tests. I would highly recommend her if you are looking for a great tutor with proven results. We'll be working with her again this fall to tackle the next class!
"Extremely helpful and friendly!"

Joy J. is a wonderful tutor. Is she kind, funny, patient, and most importantly, great at explaining concepts and answers to problems thoroughly. Highly recommended.
- Jennifer, Athens, AL on 10/20/13
Joy is a great tutor! Joy tutored me in Statistics and helped me master something that I never dreamed I could. She explained the subject well, had patience with me and I enjoyed her sense of humor. Joy is a natural born teacher and I highly recommend her to anyone who is interested in learning a new subject.

Joy has been phenomenal with my son. He has struggled with math the past two to three years and we've tried multiple tutors, and I feel like we've finally found someone who truly helps him learn. Joy is worth the 45 minute drive for us!
Joy is always responsive when we text or call - I have no complaints and there have been no red flags. She is very patient and thorough. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for assistance with advanced math classes.
We look forward to continued success!
"Excellent Math Tutor - Book Her While You Can!"
- Christopher, Huntsville, AL on 8/5/13
Mrs. J. is an excellent math tutor that I highly recommend. Over the last five (5) semesters, she has tutored me through all college math courses required for my Civil Engineering degree. These courses included – Calculus (I-III), Differential Equations, and Linear Algebra. Through her instruction, I successfully passed all courses with high marks. She is extremely knowledgeable, is a patient instructor that listens well, and is able to convey the material in a manner that is easily understood. Over the course of instruction, she was able to meet my scheduling requirements and often flexible in scheduling additional sessions on short notice. I highly recommend Mrs. J. to anyone requiring tutoring. Do yourself a favor and book her while you can!

Thanks for making extra time available when a difficult test was coming up and for checking to see how it went.
- Lisa, Huntsville, AL on 2/1/13
We are very pleased with our tutor, after the session, my daughter said that she felt good that she would understand her math homework.
- Cynthia, Madison, AL on 1/16/13
Joy tutored my daughter in high school Calculus and we were very happy with the results. She was patient and extremely knowledgeable. My daughter earned an A in the class. She was also willing to work my daughter in whenever she had a test or quiz coming up. We feel fortunate to have found her!
"The Best Tutor in North Alabama"
- William, Decatur, AL on 1/16/13
In pursuit of my business degree, I was forced to take Calculus from UAH. Math has always been my weakest subject. It had been five years since I had taken Algebra, and on my own, I have no doubt that I would have struggled to pass the class. While the teacher was flying through calculus lessons, I didn't even understand the basics from prior math courses, which your teacher will likely assume you already know. Joy, my tutor was a blessing. She taught me all of the remedial material from prior classes in a way that was easy to understand, and she got me up to speed on all of the material we were going over in class. She also prepared me for what I would see in coming classes as well. I can't thank her enough for her help. Joy is incredibly gifted at solving complex mathematical problems and breaking them down in a way that is easily understood. She is worth every penny and then some. Not to mention I made an A in the class, which is absolutely incredible considering that UAH is not an easy school, and I couldn't even plot a graph in our first lesson! I wish my friend, Joy all the best in her future endeavors.

Thank you so much, Will, and may I say that it is even more important that your future endeavors are profitable and full of luck!!!
- Rose, Toney, AL on 1/3/13
Like Joy so such and has been such a great tutor that have decided to continue for another 9 weeks to continue to grow my skills and confidence with math skills. Would recommend her for any student having trouble with math she is very patient and explains the lessons so they are easy to comprehend.
"You won't fine a better tutor!"
- Denise, Huntsville, AL on 8/28/12
Joy is a fantastic teacher! She not only knows the material, she knows how to present it to her students so that they can understand and apply the material. She has great empathy for her students as well and truly wants to help them succeed and it shows in every lesson. I've had two children taught by Joy and could not have asked for a better teacher.
- Nicholle, Madison, AL on 6/16/12
Joy was easy to set up appointments with and so helpful for my mathphobic daughter. I will recommend her to anyone in this area who needs help with math. We also plan to use her in that critical summer before college to review concepts so that we may have fewer college math classes to pay for.
"AWESOME Math Tutor!!! Excellent results!!!"
- Andrea, Huntsville, AL on 6/8/12
My child had the privilege of working with Joy for her tutoring needs. We were so incredibly lucky to find an individual like Joy with her skill set and wealth of knowledge. More importantly, she can TEACH math. Lots of people can DO math, but not many can TEACH it. At the time that Joy began tutoring my child her grade was a 59 in Algebra. Joy really helped get my child caught up and as a result she ended up with a high B in Algebra. Joy is flexible, patient, calm and kind. My child not only enjoyed her as a tutor, but views her as a friend that helped her get through a tough time and never once made her feel inferior. She empowered her to believe that she CAN DO math! We will be using Joy again just to stay on top of the learning curve in years to come. She is a fabulous tutor and it was indeed the best monetary investment that I have made in regards to my child's education. Look no further...Joy is awesome.
