About Joy

I have taught Preschool and Kindergarten full time for the past 17 years. I have spent much of my off time tutoring students from preschool to third grade on reading and math skills. I have lots of experience with children with all types of learning challenges. My goal is to making learning fun for children. I specialize in phonemic awareness, fluency and decoding skills. I have also several years experience teaching Singapore Math.

My goal for each session would be to build your child's confidence by challenging them without overwhelming them.

I have taught and tutored students in Singapore Math for several years. I like to use a hands on approach with math using manipulative and games to help students understand new concepts.

I have taught in a private Christian school for almost 20 years.

Teaching children to read is so exciting. I have had the pleasure of teaching 100's of kids to learn to read.

I would love the opportunity to help support your child learn basic reading and math skills and watch them grow in conference.

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.

Bible Studies

I have been a teacher at a private Christian school for the last seventeen years teaching bible daily. I have been a Christian for over twenty years and am a active member of our bible believing church. During this time I have taught many Sunday school classes and lead several bible study classes.

Phonics

I have taught preschool in a private school for the last seventeen years introducing the fundamentals of phonics and reading. I have also tutored many elementary children in order to strengthen their skills and increase their self confidence. I like to get to know my students and their specific learning styles in order to come up with a way to help them succeed.
