About Jo Ann


Bio

After completing my master's in psychology, I taught at Furman University in SC and then locally at DeVry. When my daughter started kindergarten, I became a very involved parent, volunteering multiple days to help with tutoring as well as other teacher's aide needs.

I discovered that I could work part-time as a para-professional which I then did, teaching Speech at an elementary school, then a middle school and finally at a high school. I really enjoy the one-on-one relationship I can get...

After completing my master's in psychology, I taught at Furman University in SC and then locally at DeVry. When my daughter started kindergarten, I became a very involved parent, volunteering multiple days to help with tutoring as well as other teacher's aide needs.

I discovered that I could work part-time as a para-professional which I then did, teaching Speech at an elementary school, then a middle school and finally at a high school. I really enjoy the one-on-one relationship I can get with tutoring. It allows me to fully tailor the teaching environment to the student's needs. I know that sometimes it takes many different ways to get information across and I really try to make it as fun as possible, playing games even when that is appropriate.

Besides having taken all high school math through calculus, I continued with math in college focusing on business and statistics. In fact, I have taught statistics and my research has even been published!

I taught Psychology for nearly two decades to both undergraduate and graduate students. I have created courses in general, social, personality, family and relationships, research methodology, business psychology and motivation and leadership.

Initially, I tutored voluntarily at my daughter's elementary school and soon realized how much I adored these students! I, then, taught speech at an elementary school for a year and a half and it was the most fun and rewarding teaching experience yet.

I understand that sometimes learning something new can be frustrating and difficult. But I also know with patience and perseverance, you can learn anything. I try to incorporate fun and games when possible, using videos if they are available, and trying to help you understand why it is important to learn this information and not just because it is required.

Very helpful!

Jo Ann is very patient and has been a great help to my son! So glad we found her and hope to continue to use her as he goes through college. She has helped him with his psychology class and a research paper. Very grateful that she will be there to help him with studying for his final exam.
