About Joi

I'm a very patient tutor who is left handed and who would prefer to work with left handed students. I like to inspire students with creative ways to learn about language and literature. It is my belief that left handed people are challenged in a world made for right handed people, but with the little help, I believe lefties can overcome learning challenges. I encourage creativity as a path to greater understanding, rather than rote or memorization. With a little encouragement and knowledge about left handedness, I believe all lefties can unlock the potential to be as great as my left handed role models: Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey, Bill Clinton, Michael Bloomberg, Steve Forbes, Tina Fey, Jerry Seinfeld and the list goes on. Left handed people like Gates, Winfrey, Bloomberg and Forbes are greatly skilled communicators, which I believe is the key to success in any subject.

My professional experience includes working as an editor for a teen magazine in New York City. For the last seven years, I've worked in the broadcast news business as a monitor and editor for a PR and marketing firm in Louisville, Kentucky. As for hobbies, I love creative writing, crafting, painting and reading. In the late 90s, I independently published a small magazine about left handed artists, which has now turned into a blog. My dream is to someday open a museum for and about left handed people. I'd like to inspire all lefties, most especially young ones, to make the world a better place through self-expression.
