About Joanne

I am an experienced elementary teacher who is currently retired and substituting in Pinellas County Schools. I have taught in grades K through 6. My Bachelor's degree is in Elementary Education and I also have a master's degree in Special Education, learning disabilities and emotional disabilities. I especially like helping students in the primary grades to develop better word attack and comprehension skills. I have had great success helping students improve their study skills,note taking ability and test preparation in grades 3-6.

I really enjoy working with students on an individual basis and in small group situations where I can focus on a child's unique learning style. I believe every child can learn and every child wants to be successful. I have extensive experience with reluctant learners, squirmy kids and hard to reach students. Discovering a child's learning style and helping her or him to be successful in school is my goal with Wyzant. I look forward to working with many promising students.

I have extensive experience in reading interventions and am a certified learning disability teacher

I have taught preschool through 3rd grade for over 20 Years. I know how to make learning fun for very young children with games ,songs and flashcards that help in learning letters and / or sounds

I have a broad background in language and was exempt from freshman English in college because of high language scores on my Sats. I love diagramming sentences.c, spelling,poetry and word plays.

TEACHING is a joy. I love learning and I am ready to help elementary students in Pinellas County improve their grades and study skills. We will learn together what you need to do to improve your ability in the classroom.

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.

Phonics

I am a certified teacher in grades 3 year - 3rd grade. I have taught in primary grades for 20 years. My last full time teaching position was in a kindergarten in Fairfax County Public Schools in Virginia from 2005-2010. I taught structured phonics lessons s and guided reading to 5 and 6 year olds during that time.

Study Skills

I have experienced success in helping students improve their study skills in my career as a special education teacher and tutor. During my graduate work in special education I learned how to help students focus on a subject for a short period of time and use highlighters, graphs, pictures and text clues to get the meat out of a reading sample in subject areas such as history, math,
social studies or in novels or other texts.

I worked with students on a daily basis as a special education teacher for 20 years, helping them improve their study skills. I helped students make note cards, games, puzzles, flash cards and use rhymes, songs and alliteration to prepare for quizzes and tests.
