Math for me was a mystery until the lights turned on through an excellent teacher in high school. I know first hand how guided learning can change math from frustration to freedom. Who would have thought I would be teaching math and loving it after so many years struggling in junior high and high school! Besides teaching and tutoring math, I homeschooled four children K-12. Two of them are now engineering students in college.

Your child likely has mental roadblocks in solving math problems. They may think, "I can't do this," and that is their biggest roadblock of all! I eat roadblocks for breakfast! Your child will learn the paths around these blocks as I give them tools to solve problems they feel are impossible. As they see small victories, they find their steps around these road blocks, and they leave them behind!

Your son or daughter doesn't need the course to be retaught. They need someone to figure out the precise pieces that are missing in their understanding. I will find those missing pieces and complete the picture. You want an analyst, coach and encourager for your child. I've had experience with students who are several years behind their grade level in math. I have often brought them back to grade level. And even more than that, some came to enjoy the challenge of math.

The lights went on for me. Do you want me to turn them on for your child?

Great Start — My son has had three sessions with Joanne and each one has been very valuable and has assisted with his understanding of geometry concepts greatly. He got low grades on his first quiz and test, and after working with Joanne, he got a 80% and 100% on his next two quizzes! Joanne rearranged her schedule to tutor my son for two hours to help him prepare for a end-of-quarter geometry test. Her help w ...
