About Joyce


Bio

I have been teaching mathematics at a local High School for 21 years. I have taught every level in those years from basic algebra to AP Calculus and everything in between. I absolutely love my job teaching and working with young people. I understand that math is not everyone's favorite subject as it was not always mine throughout high school. However, once I started in Calculus classes at Northwestern, I found that I really enjoyed math. The number one reason I became a teacher was that...

I have been teaching mathematics at a local High School for 21 years. I have taught every level in those years from basic algebra to AP Calculus and everything in between. I absolutely love my job teaching and working with young people. I understand that math is not everyone's favorite subject as it was not always mine throughout high school. However, once I started in Calculus classes at Northwestern, I found that I really enjoyed math. The number one reason I became a teacher was that math was not always easy, but since I persevered through the high school curriculum, I was very successful at Northwestern.

I specialize in tutoring AP Calculus, AP Statistics, Pre-Calculus, Geometry, and Algebra. Whether you are studying for a test or just trying to get through your homework, I can help break down the topics so you will understand the material at a deeper level.

I do try to be flexible with scheduling, but I do coach volleyball in the summer and fall. Everyone is so busy these days, I understand that conflicts do come up, however, I require a 24 hour notice for cancellation.

With almost 20 years of teaching, I feel like I know what topics will give students trouble and how to help them navigate through the material with success and more confidence.

I want students to feel comfortable working through problems in a relatively quiet location, so I like to meet with my students at the Crystal Lake Library or at a coffee shop near by.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Great Algebra II tutor

Joyce was very patient and was able to explain different ways to solve a problem. My son was able to understand when she explained it to him. Would definitely recommend her for a tutor.

Lisa, 1 lesson with Joyce

Awesomeness

Best tutor your money can buy. She is patient and is extremely knowledgeable. My son was failing honors geometry and after numerous tutors we found Joyce. Thank God for Joyce, because of her amazing ability to teach and get thru to him unlike his teacher and other tutors he is now excelling in high school mathematics. We now living in Arizonia and still skyping Joyce twice a week. Joyce is amazing.

Rebecca, 99 lessons with Joyce

Joyce is a fantastic tutor. She is very knowledgeable and patient. She has a positive attitude and is great with my son.

Joyce has been tutoring my Son in pre-calculus since October. His quiz and testing scores have improved and his overall knowledge of pre-calculus has improved significantly. We are confident that his grade will continue to improve and he now has strong math skills and is gaining confidence. We are so thankful for Joyce!
