Masters in Math and Physics, 15+ Yrs Teaching/Tutoring College andH.S.
I hold two master's degrees -- one in applied mathematics, one in physics. I started teaching math in 1999. While many of the intervening years saw me as a part-time adjunct instructor of mathematics, I did enjoy a full-time appointment to the math faculty of Alabama A&M University for 5 of those years. I have also used my skills in industry and government, most notably at NASA and Intergraph.
I've taught just about every undergraduate math course and tutored some graduate ones, too. I...

Best tutor I've ever had
Joy helped me get through Cal I- Cal III, discrete math, matrices and linear algebra, applied probability and statistics, differential equations, and abstract algebra. Her teaching style really helped me grasp things I couldn't understand during lectures (hands on do it yourself). I don't think I would have done half as good as I did in all of the above mentioned classes without her help. She is a great tutor and even better person, I would recommend her to anyone needing help in any subject involving mathematics.

Helpful tutor
Joy was able to explain concepts and evaluate my daughter well. She was able to answer her questions and was well knowledgeable in the subject matter. Looking forward to more training in future

Knowledgeable and patient tutor
Joy explained limits and continuity concepts very well. She is patient, caring and very friendly. We have decided to continue taking Joy's help for calculus topics. I strongly recommend Joy for her expertise as well as excellent online teaching skills.

BOOK A SESSION WITH JOY!
Joy is fabulous. She really helps break down the concepts behind the things (linear algebra in my case) that confuse me so I understand how to apply those concepts in a variety of ways. She is so kind, patient, and intelligent. I really appreciate her. If you are on the fence about getting a tutor (especially Joy), DO IT! Her in-depth teaching was a game changer for me.

Very patient and knows her stuff
She makes calculus easy. My son actually looks forward to his session with Joy. She really knows how to tap into the "reluctant" student! Joy has helped to raise his honors calculus one full grade.

Calc III
Joy was very helpful in helping me work through challenging calc 3 problems! This was our first session and I am looking forward to meeting with her again. She is a much needed supplement in this era of remote learning due to COVID.
Pamela, 1 lesson with JoyTutor responded:Gosh! And the notation and vocabulary your school/instructor uses confused me So Much - - but it was kinda fun, too! Thank you. In fact, I woke up this morning thinking about the Flux problem and how what I thought it wanted might actually be the Divergence of F. :)
Intelligent and so helpful!
Joy made concepts that I found impossible to understand during lectures so easy to work through. She also gave me extra insight into the problems beyond just the computation allowing me to work through tough problems using visualization/critical thinking. Super patient and kind!

Knowledgeable and patient tutor
Due to the transition of online classes this semester, it had been difficult for me to get timely help on problems. Joy helped me with several problems in differential equations. She is very patient, well-versed in diff eq, and is capable of explaining problems step by step. This helped me understand the basic concepts and methods of solving different question types. The biggest plus point was that when we worked out the problems in sessions, she was always able to highlight when and where to avoid making mistakes. Her teaching helped me get a high A!

Effective and Personable Tutor
Alexis really enjoyed working with Joy and felt that she was effective at helping her to understand the material. Joy also suggested tips and worksheets to help strengthen Alexis' skills with practice. We will definitely use her again.

Very good at helping me review my proofs
Working with Joy has been great so far. She's helped me see some gaps in my explanations for some of my proofs. I've still got a ways to go, so I'm looking forward to working with her more in the future.
