About Joanne

For over thirty years I have had the rewarding experience of instructing people from kindergartners to adults. I have my MAEd. in Curriculum and Instruction with Specialization in Computer Education from the University of Phoenix. My past experience includes teaching at Beacon College, the first accredited college in the world granting a bachelor's degree to students with learning disabilities. I am now an adjunct instructor with the Lake County Virtual School and also teach classes with Lake Sumter State College. I have also taught an elementary age student with special needs how to read and how to complete basic math problems.

My teaching methodology is to explain the material, show how to complete the task at hand, work the assignment together, and ask the student to complete practice work.

I believe that sharing study skills and time management skills are an integral part of a student becoming academically successful.

Great teacher.

Joanne worked with my son to help with his reading comprehension. She's very patient and understanding. My son enjoys the time he spends with her and feels she's helping him. His attitude towards school works has improved which has been nice to see.
