I first caught the tutoring bug when I was working as a behavioral mentor with at-risk kids in the school system. Although I enjoyed the work and the age group (teens), helping them academically was not in my job description and was actually frowned upon. But I found that this was what I really wanted to do! Shortly after that, I began tutoring math online. I loved the job and quickly rose to a Tutor III, the highest rank, and have worked with hundreds of students. I also worked as a mentor for new tutors. When my son was a junior I helped him and his girlfriend with SAT prep. That was back in 2008 and I haven’t looked back!
I have taken the SAT and ACT recently and my composite score is in the 97th percentile. I have always been a good test taker and I have spent years perfecting my own method of helping students master the art. Each lesson is customized to meet the individual needs and goals of the student. Tutoring is my profession and it’s how I help pay for tuition for three in college, but the reward of getting that email or call from parents who tell me their child got the score they wanted is priceless!

After tutoring with Joanne, our son's SAT scores increased 110 points in math and 50 points in reading. He had a great rapport with her. Joanne is easy to work with, pleasant, professional, and very knowledgeable. We were very pleased with our experience! Well worth the investment.
Joanne was wonderful and was so easy to schedule with. My daughter's score improved 60 points after only 4 hours. 40 in math and 20 in reading. Highly recommend Joanne!
We could not have been happier with Joanne. My daughter worked with her after not scoring as high as she would've liked on the ACT. She was only able to meet with Joanne three times, and after the 1st visit I was confident she would do much better!
Joanne's strategies for taking the test were enough to give my daughter a boost of confidence when taking the test again. We both feel more confident in her ability to get into the college program of her choice. Joanne, see you in a few months for the next daughter!
Awesome! I am thrilled that her hard work paid off! She will be a wonderful PA. Looking forward to working with your other daughter!
Many, many people would agree that Annie Sullivan (the teacher who helped Helen Keller learn to communicate) is the miracle worker. Well, I know a NEW miracle worker. Joanne Uzarski! My daughter came to see Joanne because her scores were going to keep her from going to the college of her choice. Joanne helped raise my daughter's ACT scores from a composite score of 13 to a new score of 18! That's a 38% increase! Her reading score alone was up 54%; truly a miracle! Joanne is currently working with my daughter to raise her SAT scores as well. I have no doubt that these scores will improve also. I would HIGHLY recommend Joanne.
You are so sweet! I can't do a thing unless my student meets me half way and does the hard work at home. Your daughter never gave up and always had her homework done. I can hardly express how excited I am that she persevered and was able to beat this test! I love my job!
Joanne worked with my daughter on ACT and precalc preparation over the summer. She was very patient, and extremely flexible, both in terms of scheduling and in developing custom curriculum for my daughter. Joanne is very professional, and I would highly recommend her as a tutor.
My son has met with Joanne a few times now for SAT prep and he is already feeling better about his next attempt at the test. He enjoys working with Joanne and feels very positive after his sessions with her.
Great tutor! Very patient and understands that children learn at different levels. Wonderful at showing my daughter easier ways to answer and check her work. Very professional. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing a SAT tutor!
In three lessons, Joanne has greatly helped my daughter, particularly with the SAT math section. She is very patient and is an excellent tutor.
Thank you so much for working with our daughter. You really made a big difference in her future. Her first SAT score before working with you was 390/440/390. Her last test in December came back at 500/540/470 Reading/Math/Writing. She has since been accepted into her selected colleges for nursing and now must decide which one she wants to attend.
Our son will be in contact in the spring for some sessions.
This is wonderful news! Tell her congratulations!
I just wanted to rave about the positive experience my daughter has been experiencing during her 2 hour tutoring session. The excitement she has displayed over improving her SAT practice scores weekly is priceless. I am so happy I choose WyzAnt over Huntington Learning. The cost alone is a Bonus!! I know my daughter has already seen the improvement of her test scores. I know with Joanne's help and my daughter's commitment to do well on her next SAT test in December the outcome will only prove positive. You have created a service that is both affordable and shows proven results for the students you tutor. I am so grateful for researching this service on-line and finding out it was available in my residential area. Joanne is an asset to your company and her commitment to her students is reflected in the outcome of their test grades. I know my daughter will be completely prepared this time around in December to achieve her very best score.
Joanne really helped my daughter stay on track and she was able to increase her scores by over 200 points. Joanne was very caring and helping with all sorts of college information. Overall she is just great and I already have my son set up for tutoring this spring.
Patty, thank you so much for letting me work with her! She just never gave up, and that perseverance will ensure a bright future at college and beyond. Congrats, and keep me updated on her plans.
After one session with Joanne, my daughter was excited about the possibility of improving her ACT score. Joanne's insights into the ACT gave my daughter a renewed sense of confidence - and she is looking forward to future tutoring sessions! I am so pleased we found Joanne!
My daughter was very happy to receive the note cards on different formulas to help her study. It was a nice extra touch!
Joanne was patient, friendly, helpful, and VERY flexible in scheduling some time with my daughter for Algebra II tutoring. My daughter does not enjoy math, but she was engaged and enthusiastic with Joanne. Joanne's flexibility in working out some time for my daughter before a critical test was really unexpected and so greatly appreciated. I would highly recommend her services.
I am so happy to know her hard work paid off with an increase of two letter grades! Nice work! I look forward to continuing with SAT tutoring this summer.
Joanne has been a pleasure to work with! She was willing to work with our busy schedules and was easy to reach by phone and email. Joanne makes my daughter at ease and thus, she learns and remembers the strategies better. I would highly recommend Joanne to anyone who is looking for specific SAT tutoring.
Thank you so much for letting me work with her! I am so happy that all of her hard work paid off with a 200 point increase!!! Keep me posted about her college plans.
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.
