About Joni

Hello students and families! My name is Joni S., and my family moved to Palm Coast in 2003 where I became a substitute teacher and active volunteer in Flagler County Schools. I am a middle school ESE/Math teacher in Volusia County and previously taught middle grades ESE/Language Arts. Prior to that, I was an ESE teacher and Business Education/Career Planning educator in St. John's County. I hold a State of Florida Department of Education (FLDOE) Professional Educator's Certificate in Business Education, Middle Grades Mathematics, English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), and Exceptional Student Education (ESE). Previously, I held an FLDOE "Statement of Eligibility" for Middle Grades Integrated Curriculum (all subjects in grades 5-9).

My husband is a fitness buff and avid bicyclist. My older daughter graduated from Matanzas High School (MHS) in 2013 and took advantage of the "Dual Enrollment" program to earn her Associates degree from Daytona State College while in high school. She earned her Bachelor's degree from Valdosta State University (GA) in 2015 and is an "Interpreter for the Deaf" (ASL-English). My younger daughter graduated MHS in May 2015, where she was a straight-A honor student and a very successful MHS athlete. She is a UNF Osprey (again with straight A's), pursuing a degree in Mathematics with a minor in Education. I am happy to share information about the schools to help families navigate the process!

I am committed to student success and helping each individual. I believe that all students learn differently, and a key to academic achievement is "learning how to learn"! My other strengths include organizational skills and time management, which also contribute to student success. I am proud of relationships I have with our young adults, families, and school staff and of my reputation of always putting the kids first!

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.

Study Skills

I have a very strong understanding of how young adults (primarily grades 5-12) learn and ultimately succeed, and I believe there are several key strategies they can use. Specifically, I can help students get organized -- in terms of keeping track of assignments, organizing papers, and getting a handle on time management. I also help them address distractions and how to stay focused. Lastly, I can help them identify their learning style so they utilize studying methods that work for them.
