All of Joan Gwen’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Joan Gwen’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified elementary teacher, licensed in Washington State. I have over 20 years of teaching experience. I earned my teaching credentials from Colorado College, Colorado Springs.

Elementary Math

Math is a stumbling block for many children, and many times they must learn to like it again. I hope that I will be the person who helps them overcome their difficulties. I have taught Elementary Math successfully for many years. Patience and good humor help!

English

I can provide English tutoring for writing or the spoken language.

Phonics

I have taken graduate courses in remedial reading, and worked as a teacher and tutor using phonics.

Reading

I have taken graduate level remedial reading courses and have tutored and taught this subject for many years. I hope to inspire the love of reading by overcoming the student's problems.

Study Skills

I have taught students the art of organizing their study skills for twenty years. I begin by asking them for an overview of the coursework, and then demonstrate how to pinpoint what is needed to understand and master each subject. Students learn how to take notes and store them for future review. They also learn how to use corrected work to analyze where their difficulties lie.

Vocabulary


I am really literate, and read and write daily so my skills are always improving.I love the idea of giving students a bank of new words to improve their speaking and writing.

Writing

I am always happy to work with a student who does not like to write, because it involves creativity in motivating that person to express themselves, perhaps for the first time. Everyone has stories inside them. It is thrilling to get them on paper.

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
