About Joan

Joan C., Los Angeles, CA
Subjects: Reading, Writing, Grammar, Literature, and ACT/SAT preparation.

Hi,

I specialize in teaching English for grade levels K - 12, including grammar, reading, writing, literature and preparation for ACT and SAT testing. My approach is to provide a positive, safe learning environment, with plenty of support, encouragement, and challenging homework assignments.

My love of tutoring comes from my experiences in working with diverse students from a variety of cultural backgrounds and skill levels. It has been very rewarding to help students learn new concepts, and gain
confidence as they become competent in core academic skills.

My tutoring sessions include regular assessments and progress reports, which are reviewed in a positive manner with my students and their parents. I’m usually available from 10:00 am to 7:00 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and occasionally on Sunday afternoons. I will meet your child at your home, or a mutually convenient location.

I look forward to hearing from you to help your child achieve success in his or her studies.
