About Joan

I have been told that I am a natural teacher. I love helping students reach their potential and have fun doing it! In every class I’ve taught, I’ve been told that I am encouraging and patient. Even though I have two Master’s degrees and have worked on a third, I understand that starting out doing something new can be intimidating. My job is to motivate students to start out on that journey. Finding out how students are motivated to learn is part of the intrigue and challenge of teaching.

I have more than six years in teaching and tutoring ESL. I have taken numerous English classes in college including graduate credits in TESOL.

I have a Master's degree in Spanish and have taught college-level Spanish for more than eight years. I have lived in Mexico and Spain and visited other Spanish-speaking countries, often as an interpreter.

Having played the piano for many years, including college-level piano instruction, and having taught piano in the past, I feel that I am well-qualified to continue to showcase this beautiful instrument. I have also played for numerous singing groups - both large and small - and even for school musicals.

As a seasoned teacher and tutor, I am eager to help you improve your grades or simply feel more confident in mastering the subject. We can decide on a schedule that works well for both of us. I'm looking forward to helping you see positive results in your studies!

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.

ESL/ESOL

I have taught ESL/ESOL for more than 6 years, and have tutored students in English, drivers' education, and citizenship as well as basic education.

Piano

I have played piano since I was six years old. I took lessons through age 18 and then at the college level. I've taught piano to several students and continue to play in public venues.
