I'm JoAnna. I've been a math teacher and an adjunct professor. I taught at Duke University and began tutoring over 20 years ago. Through my experience teaching students of all ages, from young children to adults, I've seen the importance of adapting my teaching to the learning style of each person. I also have several years experience applying math to real world situations, including creating databases in Excel. I use what's around us every day to make math easier and have it come alive!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

Praxis

As a certified math teacher, I was required to know the material covered by the Praxis I exam and Praxis II math exam. I've taught all math topics from each of these exams.

Awesome! — JoAnna is a great tutor! She tutors both of my sons and we all are very pleased. One of my sons has ADHD and struggles with the concentration needed to master math. I don't believe my son would have passed Algebra 2, if it wasn't for JoAnna's patience and expert tutoring. She has been a blessing to our family. ...
