About Joy


Bio

I have been teaching for the last 13 have been full time. I enjoy the challenges that students bring into the classroom on a daily basis. I tutor A LOT of students that take FLVS courses. I love to see the look on their face when they finally get a concept and understand the problem for the first time. I am a teacher now in the Hillsborough County School district.

I have been teaching for the last 13 have been full time. I enjoy the challenges that students bring into the classroom on a daily basis. I tutor A LOT of students that take FLVS courses. I love to see the look on their face when they finally get a concept and understand the problem for the first time. I am a teacher now in the Hillsborough County School district.

I am very passionate about teaching. I feel that you have to have some fun while learning to actually learn. I have taught grades from 5 to 9 in physical science and mathematics. I have taught drop out prevention, ESE and regular education classes. I show the numerous ways to look at a problem and find the answer. I like to foster relationships with my students so they feel comfortable to learn and open up with me. I can't wait to help your child be the best child they can be! Every child can learn but each child learns in a different way. Talk to you soon.

I teach ESE students now that are in 6th to 8th grade and they have a level of 2nd to 5th grade math and reading level. I know how to differentiate my lessons and make the students feel comfortable with level are on. With this knowledge I know that I can help the younger student succeed and feel confident about themselves and the subject they are struggling with so they don't fall further behind as they get older.

Positive and Encouraging

Having Joy tutor my son has been such an amazing experience. She has a positive attitude and such a great rapport with my high school sophomore who detested math because it was difficult for him to grasp all the concepts. Joy has been so patient, knowledgeable, and has multiple ways of explaining a mathematical equation/ concept, to find the ideal learning technique for my son. The confidence and self esteem Joy has inspired and instilled in my son goes well beyond the educational scope. It has transcended into his daily life, outside the classroom as well. Having Joy as a tutor on a permanent basis has allowed my son to establish respect as well as develop a student/ teacher friendship. Joy is always reliable and punctual, and is always a pleasure to have in our home. Joy has been the best decision I have made for my son's Math education.

A great match for my child

We've only had a few sessions, but in speaking with Joy before our first session--she understands how to help my child. He says "she's fine", which is a high compliment. She's made deals with him to get him to participate more with helping himself during school and increasing responsibility. He's in 6th grade and needs help with everything--I think Joy is a great match for us.

Super. A+

Excellent, couldn't be happier. She worked well with my son and after their tutoring session it was obvious my son felt much more confident. I noticed she used a lot of positive reinforcement which created a very nice mood. Joy is knowledgeable, patient and prompt. Highly recommend.

Great tutor.

Joy is a great math tutor for my 15 year old son. She also helps in other subjects as needed. She is reliable and I am grateful to have her as backup to get my son through high school.

Brilliant, great teacher and very flexible -- you won't find better!

I had to take a college entrance exam for a second degree some 30 years after my last math class. Knowing I would be rusty, I hired Joy to help me study. She was excellent. Very patient, knew subject matter well and taught me all the shortcuts to do the problems quicker. She even came back a second day because I was too tired to complete the whole session in one day after flying in late the night before. She is a very skilled teacher with public school experience. I would wholeheartedly recommend her. Thanks to Joy, I passed my test the afternoon after she left and felt well prepared!
