About Joyce

I enjoy math and have taught and tutored it and science for over 20 years in college and in the public schools of NYC. My love for teaching math happened when I realized my ability to make it plain and understandable to people who had enormous math anxiety. My students come from a very diverse population and range in age, with varying backgrounds and knowledge of math. Therefore, I actively teach and encourage my students to express their answers algebraically, graphically or by drawing pictures and in word sentences, as needed.

My patient, polite and easy-going manner coupled with my ability to model various methods for understanding and “seeing” things, accentuates my success as a teacher and tutor. My teaching strategies include modeling with varied teaching methods and giving a mixed review of problems. In turn, I always have the student model and explain in their own words what they've learned, showing their process for deriving an answer. In this way, I know that they fully understand and will hopefully accomplish learning other math concepts more easily.

I am fulfilled the most about teaching math when students who do not like it, recognize their ability to learn it well. That they may gain a better appreciation for their ability to do it and perhaps use it, hopefully encourages their love for learning, especially with math.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Regents

With a bachelors degree in Chemistry from Carnegie-Mellon and graduate study in math education and literacy, I have taught for more than 20 years with students transitioning in to college level math and in high school. I have taught Regents Math and have tutored Regents Math, Chemistry and Living Environment Regents with a 100% pass rate.

Wonderful and patient tutor! — My daughter only had two tutoring sessions with Ms. Joyce and we love her!

We are going to continue working with ...
