About Joyce

My name is Joyce. Most recently, I taught introductory college physics, the equivalent of AP Physics 1 and 2, at Huntington University as an adjunct professor. I have a BS in physics from Wheaton College, a Master's in Systematic Theology from Wheaton, and more than six years of experience in tutoring and teaching. I have tutored physics (including regular, honors and AP), geometry, algebra II, precalculus, trigonometry, calculus, GRE math, and writing. I have also TA'ed the college equivalent of AP Physics C.

In high school, I was a straight-A student, who took all honors and many AP classes. I was also on the math team and helped my high school win the state championships. I was a National Merit Finalist and was accepted into several top 20 universities. More importantly, I enjoyed learning and worked hard to excel.

I believe that the heart of academic excellence is not about getting good grades or winning awards. In addition to teaching content and skills, I focus on communicating enthusiasm for the subject being taught and helping students develop a lifelong love for learning. I am a patient, understanding tutor, who enjoys breaking down concepts so that they are easy to understand. I work hard to identify each student's strengths and weaknesses and will work with your student to overcome his or her problem areas. I have written mini-lectures and problem sets for students before as supplements to their official homework when I thought that it would benefit the student.

Over the summer, I am available Monday through Friday 10 am-6 pm. My preferred meeting place is Huntington Public Library, but I have a car and am willing to travel to students' homes if they live within 20 minutes of Huntington. I am also open to meeting Fort Wayne students at Allen County public library. My resume and references are available on request, as well as a list of tutoring policies.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Algebra 1

As a physics major, I have a strong grasp of mathematical concepts. I will break concepts down so that they are easy to understand!

Algebra 2

Last spring, I helped a student raise her grade by one letter grade!

Geometry

Difficult geometry problems often require insight and creativity. I enjoy helping students develop their mathematical problem-solving skills. In fact, last spring, I helped a student raise her grade by one letter!

Literature

Onomatopoeia, personification, alliteration...literature is the wonderful study of how writers use literary techniques to do everything from entertaining us to conveying great ideas about the human condition. Improve your ability to analyze great literature, write cogently, and think deeply!

Physics

I was recently Adjunct Professor in Physics at Huntington University before I stepped down to spend more time with family. I taught introductory physics for health science majors, the equivalent of AP Physics B. I have a BS in Physics from Wheaton College and have tutored several students in the subject. I am passionate about physics and love helping others understand this beautiful science!
