Lesley University - Technology in Education (MEd)
I love watching and helping people learn. I always knew I wanted to be a teacher and am proud to have taught in the public school setting for 33 years. I have recently retired from the classroom teaching setting and am now tutoring children and adults in academics and in using their computers.
In order to teach in the Colorado Public School System I have submitted to and passed background checks conducted by the Colorado Bureau of Investigation.
In addition to my Bachelor's Degree in Education, I have a Master's Degree in Technology in Education and am familiar with Mac OS, Windows OS, Microsoft Software and other software programs as well. I have managed three computer labs, two PC and one MAC. I have taught grades K-8 and adult college classes through CSU and CCU.
I have also tutored elementary and middle school students who needed to get caught up or who needed more one-on-one direction and adults who wanted to learn how to use their computers and software more proficiently.
I prefer to tutor at the Phillip S. Miller Library in Castle Rock off of Wilcox St.
I look forward to hearing from you and helping you or your child learn. I love watching and helping people learn. I always knew I wanted to be a teacher and am proud to have taught in the public school setting for 33 years. I have recently retired from the classroom teaching setting and am now tutoring children and adults in academics and in using their computers.

Joni has been fantastic working with my daughter. She has created a positive and fun lesson plan each session and has my daughter looking forward to learning with her! Excellent tutor!
I think we have finally found a tutor that we believe in. Previously, taking my daughter to a tutor was SUCH a chore. She didn't like it and we felt she wasn't truly getting the help she needed. Now, when my daughter asks if she is seeing Joni and we tell her yes - she is so excited and usually says YES! She says Joni is fun to be with and that she really understand things well when she explains it. Thanks Joni!
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.
I have a Masters Degree in Technology in Education. I have set up three labs: one Mac, two PC. I have taught computer lab instruction including Microsoft Office Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Publisher along with other desktop publishing for 14 years. I am a retired teacher who was the technology instructor at Ken Caryl Middle School for 13 years (1998-2011)and opened the first computer lab at Eiber Elementary in 1997. Both schools are in Jefferson County of Colorado.
I have been certified by the State of Colorado and have possessed a Professional Teacher License to teach elementary education since 1978, after I received my bachelor's degree from Adams State College.
I taught K-8 for 33 years before retiring in 2011.
