About Joy

I love working one on one and/or small groups and getting to know the students well! I make learning fun as I did in the classroom for 29 years! I was known as the best Reading teacher at our school. After retirement I have taught Spanish to children and adults since my retirement(for work/travel/prep for high school Spanish, etc. I have a MEd degree in Education, and I've also taught ESL and tutoring in any subject in Pendleton County, Kentucky for 3 years.

I love tutoring because the reward is finding total happiness/confidence on the faces of my students. That says it all! "At last, I now understand what seemed so difficult for so long!!"

I look forward to having new students contact me. I teach with kindness/patience! I love tutoring in Reading/Writing and ESL (which is so important to our "newcomers".) Teaching Spanish to persons almost ready to go into high school is so rewarding as I've made their path of understanding so much easier! Also, piano lessons are wonderful-we have a Recital each April (families and cameras are welcome!!). Thank you so much, Joy C.

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.

Phonics

I am qualified in Phonics from teaching first/second grades Phonics for 29 years in public school. ALso, I took an intense weekend Phonics Class from Xavier Univ. in Cincinntati, Ohio which made me an expert teacher in this subject. I earned my Masters in Ed. at Xavier U., also. Joy C.

Piano

I am overqualified to teach piano. I am a retired elementary teacher and have taught piano lessons/theory since age 19. We have a Recital each spring (April) and all families/cameras are invited. Lessons are given with patience and kindness. I took piano lessons from age 13 on. I now have many children and four adults students. Anyone with a little extra time can learn to play the piano!
