About Joel


Bio

I have been teaching high school English and journalism for 30 years and I am also a published author of fantasy short stories and novels. I have tutored students (freshmen through senior)--from struggling learners through advanced students.

Although I enjoy working with a full classroom of students, I prefer working with students in small groups or individually, as this usually achieves better results. It helps me get to know the student both as a learner and person. I enjoy the chance...

I have been teaching high school English and journalism for 30 years and I am also a published author of fantasy short stories and novels. I have tutored students (freshmen through senior)--from struggling learners through advanced students.

Although I enjoy working with a full classroom of students, I prefer working with students in small groups or individually, as this usually achieves better results. It helps me get to know the student both as a learner and person. I enjoy the chance it gives me to build a rapport with students and to adjust my teaching style to accommodate the student's learning style.

I have worked with literally hundreds of students during my three decades of teaching. Every student learns differently and I have become quite adept at meeting every student's individual needs. I have taught every class offered by our school during my teaching career ranging from remedial writing to Dual Enrollment College composition. I am very familiar with both American and English literature and can help students understand difficult works from a variety of genres.

I believe that in order to be a better teacher, it is necessary for one to read and write with students. I have several published stories to my credit, and I share these with students. I have, in fact, coached several students who have won awards at both the state and national level for their writing, both fiction and nonfiction. My students have received recognition in the Scholastic Writing Awards contest and have also attended Interlochen Arts Academy.

My students evaluate my teaching each semester. They have told me that I make difficult concepts easy and take boring topics and make them interesting. If you feel that I am the right tutor for you, please contact me so that we may discuss a schedule for lessons that works for both of us.
