About Joanna

My desire, when I tutor, is to see students learn versus simply achieving the correct response. I believe that the only way a student can truly achieve the correct answer is if they learn the subject. In this, the student will be able to learn how to complete work or lessons on their own without the constant supervision or a tutor, teacher, or parent. I believe this is vital for everyone.

I graduated from Florida Atlantic University cum laude with my B.A. in English and a minor in Spanish and have since continued my education. I have previous experience tutoring 7th and 8th grade students in FCAT Math and also tutoring the athletes at my university in their English classes. During both experiences, I received positive comments from both the students and the parents about the patience and dedication I have when assisting them. It was also evident by their test scores and grades.


An anonymous author once stated, "Everyone is a genius, but it is only those who believe it who will actually achieve it." There is a genius locked inside of every individual no matter their age, grade, or major. I would like to help each student unlock that genius and reach his or her full potential. I am available to advise students outside of our tutoring sessions for no extra charge. Whether you have an essay due that night at midnight and would like a last minute proofreading, or you simply need to brainstorm with someone over the phone, I am more than happy to do any of these things to see that you succeed. I am available Monday-Friday throughout the day and am willing to travel to a student up to 20 miles or meet the student in a public area (i.e. library, Starbucks, etc.). Please contact me for more information.

I look forward to working with you or your student in the near future!

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.

ACT English

I have, myself, taken the ACT and each time I have taken it, I have scored in the highest percentile. I have also assisted several other students who previously struggled with the ACT English section. They have since increased their English scores.

English

I majored in English during my undergraduate years and was also accepted into the English Honors program at my university. I have experience tutoring in English as I was an English tutor for several of the athletes at FAU. The students that I tutored received A's and occasional B's in their classes and on their papers as well.

Spanish

I have studied Spanish in an academic setting for the past 6 years and was a Spanish minor during my undergraduate. I have visited several Spanish speaking countries and have been used as an interpreter on several occasions including from person to person and also in singing.

Vocabulary

I have ample experience in both memorizing and understanding vocabulary. I have taken both the ACT and the GRE (both tests which require vocabulary) and have done very well in that section. I believe I am qualified to assist those in need of vocabulary help.
