Through my experience teaching students of all ages, including teens and adults, I've seen the importance of adapting my teaching to the learning style of each person.

I've been a math teacher and an adjunct professor. I taught at Duke University and began tutoring over 20 years ago. Through my experience teaching students of all ages, including teens and adults, I've seen the importance of adapting my teaching to the learning style of each person. I also have several years of experience applying math to real world situations. I use what's around us every day to make math easier and have it come alive! I help gifted math students, students struggling to pass math, and those in between.

My students find they gain much more than a better understanding of math. Their grades and their study skills improve. They complete their homework on time. Their self-confidence increases. They feel more at ease as their stress levels and test anxiety lessen. Yes, and sometimes they actually smile and laugh while learning math! Students discover they really can ask questions and get the answers they need. They can request help and receive it.

I tutor these subjects remotely and in person:
Common Core Math 1, 2, 3
Pre-Algebra
Algebra 1, 2
Geometry
Trigonometry
Advanced Functions and Modeling (AFM)
Pre-Calculus
AP Calculus AB, BC

I also tutor math for these exams:
PSAT
ACT
SAT
SAT Math I, II
Accuplacer
Compass
Praxis

A high school senior gave me a handwritten note which said: “You are truly a blessing that came into my life. You helped me change my perspective towards math. I thought I was a failure in math. You have helped me and gave me hope that I can actually succeed in life no matter how challenges may come. When I graduate college and medical school, you will be in my speech because you played a huge influence in my accomplishment. Never stop teaching because you help give people like me hope!”

She is a lifesaver!

JoAnna has worked with my daughter for a few weeks, and already my daughter is feeling much more confident with regard to her precalculus content. I am thrilled we found JoAnna!

Someone who actually knows how to teach . . .

A brilliant mind may understand everything there is to know about a subject, but if they can't convey to others that same understanding, they should not be teaching. My son was struggling in AP Calculus, the first time he had encountered a problem with math. I made an appointment to talk to his teacher and found out why: his teacher was someone who was detached and wouldn't answer simple questions with simple answers, choosing to ramble on and on without directly addressing what was asked. I have to believe this is the way he teaches. I made a tutoring appointment with JoAnna and, within the hour, was able to get my son to understand concepts with which he was struggling. After the lesson, I asked him how it went and if he thought JoAnna would be OK or if I should be looking elsewhere. He told me he believed he found someone and was excited about the possibilities of achieving success in math again. Thank you JoAnna!

Our First Session

Tonight was my son's first session with JoAnna and he really liked her. She helped him with Algebra 2, which he has been struggling with. He will definitely be meeting with her again.

Patient & Knowledgeable Tutor

JoAnna did a wonderful job working with my daughter. My daughter said she was “really kind and patient”. JoAnna helped her gain extra confidence for an upcoming exam. We will definitely be scheduling additional sessions.
