About Jo Anna


Bio

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'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. I’ve tutored students taking online courses and those who are homeschooled.

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:
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
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!”

Great

Very knowledgeable and our son enjoyed the lesson. She knows the material well and how to communicate it. Worked on operations with rationals. Explained the concept and reviewed several examples.

Peter, 1 lesson with Jo Anna

Excellent tutor

My daughter had her first session with Joanna today. Chase was excited after her session and wants to book again next week. She said “she was so nice and she helped to explain where I was making my mistakes”

Cathy, 3 lessons with Jo Anna

Breakthrough!

JoAnna explained a concept to my son with which he had been struggling for years. He’s a theory guy, so when she shared the “why” of the concept and not just the “how” to use it, it all made sense to him. No more just plugging and chugging numbers by rote, but really understanding and applying it. Thank you!

My reluctant teenage son has changed his tune

My son was VERY annoyed and reluctant that I had signed him up for online tutoring. Now, he looks forward the sessions, says JoAnna always "makes it fun" and makes the material more understandable. Grades improving....win! win!

Janel, 9 lessons with Jo Anna

Informative

JoAnna helped Ivey with solving some math homework and going through the process of figuring out the formulas. She was very patient and made sure she new the definitions and formulas for figuring square root.
