Serious Math and High School Physics Tutoring - - Experienced!
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...

Wonderful Teacher, Coach and Tutor
Joy really knows what she's doing. No matter what question or homework problem I had, it only took her a moment to explain and answer it thoroughly and, best of all, help me to finally understand it, as well! She is patient, caring, and smart, and the things she said helped me complete the rest of my homework--even the material we didn't cover together. I'll be coming back to her again, and I highly recommend her. Thanks, Joy!

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.

Great Instructor
Joy is helping my son overcome his challenges with Algebra II. He is a lot more confident now. Joy is helping him look ahead to the next lesson as well as helping him with the current lesson. I wish we had contacted her months ago.

Great at making complex topics simple
Working with Joy was great. She really works to help make the material easy to understand, and also has lots of tricks about how to save time while taking a test. I contacted Joy for assistance with my second bachelor's degree. I was specifically struggling with Discrete Mathematics. She cleared up lots of confusing topics for me, and it paid off. I was headed for my lowest grade in the degree, but with Joy's help I managed to get a 95 on my Final exam and a 93 in the class overall. Thanks, Joy!

Very patient and very knowledgeable
I decided to go to college after being out of school for 30 years. I needed a tutor to help get through a math class. I found Joy, and she is so great. Very patient with me as I wade through math that I have not seen in forever. She has been able to provide techniques to help me retain the information. I highly recommend Joy to anyone who is feeling overwhelmed by math. She is WONDERFUL!!!

Encouraging and knowledgeable
Joy was a great help in getting me back on track with my GRE prep and made some great suggestions on additional practice. Maybe more importantly, Joy was very encouraging...and I needed that!

Excellent tutorand great help during my applications process!
Joy is a fantastic tutor and did an awesome job bringing the math down to my level. I am a thirty-something year old gal in grad school who hasn't used calculus in AGES. Joy excelled at essentially reteaching the subject to me in order for me to better understand my MBA class material.
