About Joel


Bio

Hello, my name is Joel. I am from Peoria Heights, IL. I have been a substitute school teacher ever since the Spring of 2003. Although I have never held a tutoring position, I have substitute-taught in many classes and feel that I have acquired significant experience in the classroom.

My experience in substitute teaching has been mainly at the elementary level including the following subject areas: English, Reading, Phonics, Math, Science, Social Studies, Vocabulary, and Geography.

Hello, my name is Joel. I am from Peoria Heights, IL. I have been a substitute school teacher ever since the Spring of 2003. Although I have never held a tutoring position, I have substitute-taught in many classes and feel that I have acquired significant experience in the classroom.

My experience in substitute teaching has been mainly at the elementary level including the following subject areas: English, Reading, Phonics, Math, Science, Social Studies, Vocabulary, and Geography.

If for example, I was going to tutor vocabulary studies to students, then I would use the approach of getting more familiar with the dictionary and how to use it wisely. When a student can master breaking down words into syllables and then figure out what one means, then they can develop a better understanding at defining words. This the approach that I would take in assisting students in improving their vocabulary skills. If I was to tutor math, then I would take the approach in solving problems step-by-step and always to use formulas. I believe that it will provide the student with a better understanding in solving math problems. When it relates to reading and comprehending, I have always found it beneficial to highlight all important ideas and terms as I read. This gave me a better understanding of what I was reading and helped myself comprehend better. I would definitely use this approach if I was tutoring students in reading/comprehension. This approach would be beneficial with Social Studies and Science too.

I do believe that my several years of substitute school teaching experience would make me a valuable asset in the lives of students in need of tutoring assistance. I have always had an interest in tutoring along with substitute school teaching, but I have never had the opportunity to pursue individual tutoring. I am very flexible on hours that I would be available to tutor. Flexibility is very important to students as well so my main goal is to work around the students schedule.

Social Studies

During my years of college I had taken several courses in Social Sciences at the Junior College level before getting into my Junior/Senior level courses. I have been Substitute teaching for nearly twelve years now in the Elementary/Middle to High school level. I Substitute taught several Social Studies classes over the years of Substitute teaching. I believe that having the Social Science classes along with the Substitute teaching experience quite valuable for me to be considered qualified.

very patient and kind

Joel is great with my son Gabe. He is super kid friendly, takes time to work through the problems with Gabe and make sure Gabe understands the problems before moving on to something else. He came to the first session super prepared and ready to help Gabe and it meant the world to us that he was ready to put Gabes needs first. Would highly recommend!

Excellent Tutor

Amazing work done by Joel. My daughter is showing great improvement in her high school math grades since we started with him. Joel is a great tutor who is very patient and very thorough. He is very flexible with his schedules which is working out very well with my daughter's other after school and weekend activities.
