About Joni

Hello,

I am an Elementary School teacher who's left the classroom to pursue my PhD. I have 5+ years' national and international teaching experience and specialize in children with ADD/ADHD. I recently moved to the California area to complete my Doctoral degree in Public Health: Health Education and Biostatistics. I have worked with similar tutoring companies in the past back on the East coast specializing in elementary students. Since moving to California, I've tutored doctoral students in Biostatistics and dissertation analysis using SPSS. I am currently a Teaching Assistant at the university for general statistics and thoroughly enjoy the subject. I love teaching and will commit to the client and family until the desired results are acquired. In the past I have successfully improved clients reading levels by 1.5 grade levels and have helped students develop study and organization skills to help them succeed in school. Please feel free to contact me about any questions you may have about my background or expertise.

I look forward to meeting you and helping your child become more successful academically.

Joni R.

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.
