About Dr. Jo Ann

I have 40 years of experience in creating rigorous learning environments in two states. I started with Indiana, served as an elementary teacher, principal, and Reading director of a private Reading clinic. I extended my love of teaching reading as a Reading Specialist and Lead Literacy Teacher in Chicago, Illinois. I oversaw the Reading competency of many students of all ages. I retired in 2010, but now I am back, and ready to go! It would be my pleasure to serve students seeking help and enrichment in these areas: Test Prep, Language Arts, Reading Comprehension, Extended Response Writing, Study skills, and Vocabulary Development. Get highly prepared for Common Core Standards, Indiana Academic Standards (Reading, Language, Social Studies) and the ISAT Illinois Assessment. Together, our goal will be to meet local and state requirements in English/Reading and the Language Arts.

I have set a minimum of two hour sessions per assignments. I will provide make-up sessions upon a 24 hour notification. There will be established a central location identified for tutorial services within the Northwest Indiana proper. Finally, I look forward to meeting you and helping you KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE PRIZE.
