About Joan

I am a highly effective, dedicated and caring tutor who seeks to motivate students who are struggling with learning in a school setting. I hold a Bachelor's of Arts from Brown University, Magna Cum Laude, and a Master's of Business Administration from Bryant University. My academic training in English, math, and computers has served me well as a tutor and motivator.

I worked as a volunteer tutor in the County public school system at the elementary and middle school levels for more than 15 years. There I helped develop and teach enrichment math and reading programs as well as worked with struggling students to bring their skills up to grade level.

I embrace multiple teaching methodologies tailored to the individual needs of each student. I understand how to facilitate a supportive and interactive learning environment that allows my students to develop the self-confidence needed to succeed. As a goal-oriented tutor, I help my students to develop the hard skills needed to thrive in school, as well as how to approach learning so that it becomes fun.

My schedule is quite flexible. I tutor students in their homes, my home office, or at a location of their choice. I can help you and your children achieve their academic goals and potential, and welcome the opportunity to work with new students.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have privately tutored numerous kindergarten through eighth grade students in the past five years in reading, writing, math and social studies. I have also been very involved in the public school system implementing and teaching reading programs. Additionally, I taught Math and Science programs in the public elementary school system for more than 10 years. I understand the need to tailor my teaching method to a student’s individual needs to promote a positive environment so that my students can achieve academic success.
