About Joyce

My name is Joyce, and I am an adjunct professor in physics at Huntington University. I have a BS in physics from Wheaton College, a Master's in Systematic Theology from Wheaton, and more than four years of experience in tutoring and teaching high school and early college physics, math, and writing. I am currently teaching introductory physics at Huntington University, which is the equivalent of AP Physics B. 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.

I am available Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10 am to 5 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. 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!

Bible Studies

I am a 3rd year master's student in Systematic Theology at Wheaton Graduate School. I have taken numerous Bible and theology classes in college and grad school.

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!
