About Joel

Currently, I am in my eleventh year of teaching. I have taught special education to students in grades K-8. In addition, I have taught regular education at the elementary level and I have experience as a Literacy Coach serving multiple schools in one of the largest school districts in North Carolina.

I've earned my Master's Degree in Elementary Education and have finished all classwork towards my Educational Doctorate in Curriculum and Instruction. My teaching certifications include Elementary Education K-6, Special Education General Curriculum K-12, Special Education Adapted Curriculum K-12, Middle School Social Studies and High School Social Studies.

My passion involves teaching people, especially young children, how to read. Many individuals who have difficulty reading feel that they are to blame. Nothing could be further from the truth. They've simply not been given the appropriate instruction. It is an amazing and rewarding experience to see a child realize that they can read!

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.

Dyslexia

As an educator in both the Exceptional and General Education classroom, I have successful experience teaching students who suffer with Dyslexia - a severe form of learning disability in reading. In order to meet the needs of students with significant learning disabilities, my instruction includes auditory, visual, and kinesthetic aspects.

Elementary (K-6th)

I"m licensed to teach Elementary Education in North Carolina. In all, I've taught for almost eleven years. Several of those years were spent as an elementary classroom teacher. In addition, I have a Master's in Elementary Education.

Phonics

I am licensed to teach Elementary Education as well as Special Education. I've successfully completed Reading Instruction college classes at both the undergraduate and graduate level. In addition, I've worked as a Literacy Coach serving multiple schools in one of the largest school districts in North Carolina. Perhaps of most importance, I have completed Foundations in Reading which is a North Carolina School Improvement Project approved course.

Soccer

I am qualified to instruct both beginning and intermediate level soccer players. I've coached children ages six through 13 for four years. Each year includes two soccer seasons. My most recent team lost only one game throughout the season and won the post season championship.

Special Needs

My qualifications include both the Exceptional Children-Adapted Curriculum and Exceptional Children-General Curriculum North Carolina licenses. Currently, I am a special education teacher at the elementary level.
