I have been teaching for the last 12 years, the last 8 have been full time. The other 4 was as a full time substitute. I enjoy the challenges that students bring into the classroom on a daily basis. I love to see the look on their face when they finally get a concept and understand the problem for the first time. I am a teacher now in the Bradenton County School district.

I am very passionate about teaching. I feel that you have to have some fun while learning to actually learn. I have taught grades from 5 to 9 in physical science and mathematics. I have taught drop out prevention, ESE and regular education classes. I show the numerous ways to look at a problem and find the answer. I like to foster relationships with my students so they feel comfortable to learn and open up with me. I can’t wait to help your child be the best child they can be! Every child can learn but each child learns in a different way. Talk to you soon.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I teach ESE students now that are in 6th to 8th grade and they have a level of 2nd to 5th grade math and reading level. I know how to differentiate my lessons and make the students feel comfortable with level are on. With this knowledge I know that I can help the younger student succeed and feel confident about themselves and the subject they are struggling with so they don't fall further behind as they get older.

Study Skills

I have worked and work with ESE and drop out prevention students that need help with learning how to study for homework, classwork and tests. I know that with good study skills your grades will be better and you will feel more confident in yourself. More confidence helps with the student feel more positive in school and with his or herself.

Super. A+ — Excellent, couldn't be happier. She worked well with my son and after their tutoring session it was obvious my son felt much more confident. I noticed she used a lot of positive reinforcement which created a very nice mood. Joy is knowledgeable, patient and prompt. Highly recommend. ...
