About Joyce

I recently graduated from Cal Poly Pomona with a MS degree in mathematics option in statistics, and I also taught various levels of math/statistic classes in Cal Poly. I currently teach math and statistics in a community college. I have a single-subject teaching credential in math and I taught high school for several years. I taught Pre-algebra, Algebra I, Algebra 2, Geometry, Calculus, Statistic, and various other levels of college/high school levels of math classes.

I really enjoy tutoring because I can go at any pace you decide. In a classroom setting it can be difficult to keep a pace fast enough to challenge the gifted students yet still not lose the students who need a little more help. Tutoring one on one is more interactive and can be much more beneficial to the student because he or she can stop me at any time. Lesson is customized to the needs of individual students. As a teacher, I am committed to doing anything I can to help my students to learn and achieve their individual learning goals. I design lesson plans that incorporate real-life examples and applications to help students see the relevance in a topic as well as the interconnectedness of math concepts. I also believe in effectively breaking down complex concepts into simpler and more detailed chunks.

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or would like to set up a session. One of the most rewarding aspects of tutoring is the "light blub" moment when I see the student finally "get it." I look forward to meeting with you and helping you (or your child) with his or her course.

It was a pleasure meeting you and I enjoyed our tutoring session. You have a strong understanding theorems that are used in proofs and so I decided to focus our session on methods of proving. I am glad that it was helpful and that you translated those proving methods into your daily work. I can't think of a more reward way to spend 75 minutes!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Knowledgeable and Patient

Joyce was very helpful and insightful with my questions. She explained things very well and made complicated topics easy to understand. In just one session helped me understand two weeks of material and was very open to any questions or methods of learning I had. Very happy to have her as a tutor and will definitely have more sessions with her!
