About Joan

I have a background and undergraduate and graduate degrees in teaching, tutoring, and counseling. I love working with and growing with people. I've taught and tutored English to non-native speakers and native speakers since 1990. My students have come from all over the world, and I have traveled, lived, and taught overseas, as well. I love working with people one-to-one so that we can get to know and enjoy one another, while working to meet your specific and individual goals.

Having taught and tutored in universities and community colleges, I enjoy working with and learning from adult students who are truly motivated. I can help you improve your academic skills, and/or I can help if you want more conversation and listening practice for informal language use. I've also worked with professionals in private language institutes who were seeking to improve their communication skills in business settings. In addition, I am a writer and do proofreading and editing for students working on their English compositions, master's theses, and doctoral dissertations.

If you want to improve your English language skills and achieve your personal, academic, or professional goals, please contact me.

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.

Proofreading

I have a Master's degree in English/English as a Second Language. I have 24 years of teaching English to international university students. And I have private editing and tutoring throughout my teaching career and continuing now.

Writing

In addition to master's degrees in Counseling and in Psychology, I have a third master's in English from Colorado State University. I taught English composition to international and U.S. college and university students from 1990 to 2014. I also taught grammar and reading, so my facility with English is quite advanced. In addition, I currently tutor individuals in English, as well as proofreading and editing master's theses and doctoral level dissertations for graduate students at Colorado State University. Finally, I have long been an avid reader, which assists me in being a proficient writer. I am currently working on a memoir, as well as providing feedback to another writer who is working on both a nonfiction book and a novel. English is my native language, and helping others to communicate effectively with it is a joy to me.
