Hello, my name is Joy, and I have been formally educated in Colorado. I currently hold a Doctorate Degree in Clinical Psychology. I received my Associate of Arts (A.A.) degree from AIMS Community College in Colorado in 1998, and my Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Psychology from CU-Boulder in 2004. In 2008, I earned my Master's (M.A.) from the University of the Rockies in Colorado Springs. I completed my education in 2010 with a Doctorate in Psychology (PsyD, also from University of the Rockies).

I am very good at explaining concepts to those who want to learn. I use a Socratic style of teaching, which means I ask you questions about a subject or topic to try and get you to think before going into more in-depth answers. This style enhances critical thinking skills, which empowers you to be more in command of the subject matter.

Psychology is my passion, but I am additionally quite good with helping students with research and writing skills, as psychologists utilize writing as a part of their daily business. I can help you with building better study habits, developing a wider vocabulary, and with expanding your English language skills.

I am friendly, warm, patient, and I care about students, no matter your age or background. I am a reliable person, and I understand tutoring is a two-way street. I hope we will be able to work well together!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Study Skills

Study skills are an important part of your success as a student. For those of you who have concentration challenges, I can help. I, too, have been challenged by concentration issues; yet, I have a doctorate. The way I have been successful in my academic efforts, is by learning some key strategy elements. I can show you how you can develop solid study skills to get you through even the most boring subject. Do you have other challenges with studying? Let's discuss what you need and I am sure that together, we will find a solution to your unique learning style.

Writing

I love to do academic writing. As a psychologist candidate, I have had to write many, many papers, plus a full length dissertation. I had to learn how to organize my research and to integrate it into a clear, informative manuscript. I can help you do this too!

A good strategy that works for me is to take a lot of short breaks and play a game every time you complete a section of what you are working on. It works like giving yourself a reward for getting something completed. You just have to make sure you are not playing the game for longer than you...
