About Joanna

I have taught and tutored with the Anchorage School District, Anchorage, Alaska, for over 15 years and love what I do! My background with my own struggling children and education in Slingerland, Lindamood Bell, UAA and APU classes have given me a broad perspective on how to help students. I am highly qualified to teach grades K-8 with ASD and the majority of my experiences have been teaching grammar, reading and writing. I am passionate about teaching and love to teach both the early reading and writing processes (K-8 grades) although I can also help high schoolers with the writing process as well. I have had great success with students in the private sector and would love to help your child succeed in these areas!

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.

Dyslexia

I have taken all three levels of Slingerland Reading and Writing training which qualifies me to work with dyslexic children. I am also certified in Lindamood Bell training which is a phoneme awareness program used for auditory weaknesses/processing issues in dyslexic children. I have been working in this field for the last 16 years.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a highly qualified teacher, grades K-6, currently teaching within the Anchorage School District. I have taught here for 16 years and have been certified and highly qualified for this length of time as well. I have also tutored students with needs in the Language Arts areas for more than 16 years and have multiple trainings in reading, writing and spelling methodologies.

English

I am a highly qualified English teacher with the Anchorage School District. I have been teaching English (and other subjects)for the past 16 years. I have also helped to prepare students for the college prep tests. I have flexibility as to when I am available.

Phonics

I have taught this area of Language Arts for 16 years. I am both Slingerland and Lindamood-Bell certified which are methodologies used to teach phonics. I currently teach Reading and Writing to K-6th graders.
