Teaching is my passion. I love people and my students in particular. I have many years of teaching experience. My credentials include a Bachelor of Science degree in Education from Auburn University and additional Education coursework from the University of California. I have taught throughout the United States and in Europe. I am a member of Sunshine State Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages and hold a lifetime teaching credential from California.

In the beginning of my career, I taught third grade, all subjects, in Alabama. From there I moved to Germany and spent four years teaching Adult Basic Education courses to U.S. military personnel. I also taught first and second grades in the U.S. dependent school system. Upon returning to the U.S., I taught Adult Basic Education and GED Preparation courses in Lawton, Oklahoma. After relocating to Monterey, California, I began my career in teaching ESL, which I have successfully continued. I have taught ESL in California, Pennsylvania, Nevada, and now in Orlando, Florida. These positions have been in public school systems, private schools, community college, college, and a university. I have taught all skills of ESL, including listening, speaking, grammar, vocabulary, reading, and writing. While most of my students have been adults, I have taught many children over the years. I enjoy teaching all ages of learners. In addition to ESL, other subjects I enjoy teaching are grammar, reading, spelling, phonics, handwriting, vocabulary, and writing.

Learning another language is very difficult. To be successful, a student must have a patient, understanding, and compassionate teacher. This is my personality and my teaching style, and this has helped me to be successful in my career. The student must feel comfortable and confident that he or she can succeed. Through the years I have helped many students achieve their goals, and I would love to have the opportunity to help you or your child do the same.

Knowledgeable, kind, and accommodating

JoAnn was quick to communicate and accommodating to location and time. We are using her services to tutor my mother in English for non-native speakers, and my mother is very happy with her first lesson. JoAnn brought placement tests and a variety of materials to get my mother started right away, and my mother is very excited for the lessons to come.

Carolina, 23 lessons with Jo Ann

Awesome teacher!

JoAnn taught my 8 year old son and helped him get comfortable with ESL. She is very experienced teacher and knows what she is doing. She is very patient and encouraging. My son was very happy with the classes. She used teaching topics that my son liked to elicit conversation in English We are very happy with the overall experience and would recommend her without any reservation.

Rupinder, 7 lessons with Jo Ann

Patient and fun tutor!

I have a 7 yr old daughter and she opened up very quickly to her. She was patient and made it a fun experience to learn. My daughter had a great time! Even though they were having fun, she was learning , and staying on track at the same time. What I love the most about Ms.JoAnn she always praised my daughter at the end even at the struggles my daughter had.

Marissa, 15 lessons with Jo Ann

Great teacher ever

I very happy to found a good teacher like JoAnn, my first time and I learned many thing I ever learn before and very easy to understand with her patients and kindness and I very impress about it. Thank you JoAnn.

Taya, 2 lessons with Jo Ann

Perfect!!!!

Kind, sweet, loving, many skill levels. Ms JoAnn gets on the level needed to transfer her knowledge so that it's understood on your level making it easier to understand and apply. My daughter has had a rough year with a teacher who has well let's just say she was furthest from "teachers pet" to the point that she does not like to go to school. Ms JoAnn has kindly taken the time to teach her in a way she really didn't even relate her teaching to "school". She has come along way and still has more to come but Ms JoAnn has been perfect! She has accommodated us as far as different locations times and so forth. Thank you Ms JoAnn you are the best tutor!!!

Everything I Expected

Joann was exactly what I expected when I first met her. My daughter fell in love with her instantly and had a great 1st tutoring session. Joann was very patient and had a ton of material with her. Both my daughter and myself look forward to our next session.

Melissa, 6 lessons with Jo Ann

Awesome!

JoAnn has been so easy to work with. Her communication skills are impeccable- she is organized and on time, very professional, but most of all cares about our students and has been so beneficial to them developing their English skills while visiting from Russia!
