JoAnna is always responsive and very easy to work with schedules. She has been great to deal with. As for the tutoring she has been awesome for my son. Math is not his favorite subject, but she has made the environment and process of learning it much easier and she is very patient. Thanks JoAnna!

JoAnna is a very professional tutor. She arrives on time and wants our son to be ready. We like her feedback after the lesson and the written summary that we receive via email. Our son is a typical teenager, who is very hard to please. He mentioned to us that he has learned with JoAnna more than what he has learned in a semester. Maybe he is exaggerating a little bit but the point is that JoAnna can reach our son and that is a true accomplishment. We are very happy that our friend recommended her to us. JoAnna has the patience of an angel. She is a magnificent tutor!
"Very patient, great tutor!"

JoAnna has been an exceptional tutor for my daughter. She is very patient and very knowledgable. She returns phone calls promptly and is very flexible in her scheduling of lessons. JoAnna makes my daughter feel very comfortable. I would definitely recommend JoAnna to anyone who is looking for a math tutor. We just love JoAnna!!!!!!
"Patient, kind and very accessible"

My daughter was in tears over her honors Algebra 2 class. We called Joanna and after 1 session with her, she has a renewed understanding and self confidence!! We will continue to use Joanna and I would highly recommend her!!

I am a UNC student who worked with Joanna for my Math 130 course, and would definitely recommend this tutor. Math has always been a weak point for me, but I started to get the hang of it with Joanna. Patient, and prepared tutor!
"Is working hard to help my child"

This tutor is both pleasant and professional and is trying very hard to understand key weaknesses and help my child overcome them to improve their SAT score. After only several weeks of tutoring, my child's Pre-calculus test score went from 63 to 94! Way to go JoAnna!!

Our daughter's math tutoring experience with JoAnna not only helped her better understand the concepts but also increased her SAT scores by many points.
"She is brilliant at pre-calculus methodology!"
Lisa from Durham, NC on 2/29/12
JoAnna is an awesome tutor! My son was struggling in honors pre-calculus until he started receiving tutoring from JoAnna. Within two weeks, JoAnna helped him gain confidence, reduce test anxiety, and improve his grades by using helpful strategies. My son said “Mom, I am very thankful for Ms. JoAnna…I finally understand pre-calculus."

JoAnna is a wonderful tutor. She is so knowledgeable and has helped my son tremendously with honors geometry. She is easy to reach and always prompt. We just love her!
"Great tutor who makes herself available to her students!!!!"

First, I cannot recommend JoAnna S enough. My 9th Grade daughter had been struggling to improve her Algebra II grade. Working with JoAnna in under a month, she's been able to bring her grade up from C- to B- for her report card. Best of all, my daughter has brought home work that shows her potential: test & quiz grades of 93% or more since she began working with JoAnna. When JoAnna arrives at your home, she brings assurance & patience that help break down the barriers & make the tutoring / learning process easier. She is friendly, punctual, helpful & makes tough subjects not only bearable but it was fun. My daughter was able to take the knowledge back to class to share with her fellow students. And now she wants to stand in front of the class & work problems out on the white board. What a wonderful turnaround. THANK YOU!!!

My daughter has been working with Ms Stange, for approximately 3 weeks. I was a little apprehensive about bringing a tutor into my home to tutor my daughter, in Geometry, who is extremely shy by the way. Joanna immediately made her feel at ease, and adjusted her learning approach, based on my daughter's personality. On the first evening of tutoring, I began to hear my daughter laugh a little and ask questions during the session, and I knew Joanna had accomplished what I needed, on the very first night, which was to make April feel at ease, so she could learn her geometry concepts. Within 3 weeks, my daughters grade point average has gone up 9 points, and she is feeling a lot more confident about her class. I will continue to have her tutor April, until the end of the grading period. As a result of what she has accomplished with my younger daughter, I have also chosen to have her work with my 12th grader, who is struggling in AFM (Advanced Functions and Modeling). I appreciate that fact that Joanna can tutor more than 1 type of subject. She is extremely easy to reach, and she normally responds very quickly to phone calls, and e-mails. This tutoring experience, has been fantastic for my family, and hope we have a long tutoring relationship, as I have 3 children that will need assistance, over the years. High-five to JoAnna!!!

JoAnna is terrific! She's knowledgeable, patient, and easy to work with. I would definitely recommend her!
"We Love JoAnna!!"
Joelle from Franklinton, NC on 3/31/10
JoAnna has been helping my daughter with Honors Algebra II. With her help, my daughter has maintained an A average all during the fast-paced semester. She just completed her mid-term and scored a 97! My daughter made the comment after only her second session with JoAnna, that "I have learned more from JoAnna than I did during my entire year of Algebra!" I can't tell you how much confidence JoAnna has given my daughter. JoAnna is so very patient and encouraging. She is easy to contact by phone and always returns her emails promptly. With her teaching strategies, she is able to keep my daughter focused during the entire session. My daughter has never really liked math, but with JoAnna's help and influence, by the end of the semester math may be her favorite course of study! Thanks Joanna, We love you!
"Excellent for me..."
Karen from Raleigh, NC on 9/26/09
JoAnna explains Math to me in a way that I understand it...She's extremely patient and has taught me a great deal since she started with me. I personally don't know what I would do without her help!! JoAnna is very professional, and knows a lot of teaching techniques to help me understand the material.
