About Joyce

My love of math encouraged my curiosity to major in science. I have a B.A. in Chemistry and minor in Math (36 credits in both subjects), with more than 20 years combined as a private tutor and teacher in middle school, high school and college. I realized early on my ability to convey and simplify "math language" and science concepts.

In 2013, I joined Wyzant to gain further outreach in my new area of the city. I continue to teach the New York State Common Core Regents Exams and math for the GED/TASC and SAT and tailor Individual Learning Plans for private students and GED learners. My longest and current teaching tenure has been as Adjunct Lecturer in Mathematics at New York University where I cover all math topics up to calculus and statistics. My graduate math education gave me a broader vision about many other methods and practices for diverse learners in the classroom and as a tutor for diverse learners.

My greatest success is that 100% of my students significantly increase their grades through better understanding of concepts, thereby passing their coursework and specialized tests. My main goal is to give students the foundation tools to think and challenge them without overwhelming them. In this way, they build confidence in wanting to learn more. Their gain hopefully fosters a better appreciation and love for learning.

I am generally available Monday through Saturday for scheduled appointments. I look forward to speaking with you about your needs.

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.

Algebra 2

My background and experience includes a bachelors degree in chemistry with a minor in math from Carnegie Mellon University. I've completed graduate education courses, while I taught beginner's, high school and college learners (including adult learners) concepts in algebra, geometry, trigonometry and calculus, including Algebra 2.

Regents

With a bachelors degree in Chemistry from Carnegie-Mellon and graduate study in math education and literacy, I have taught for more than 20 years with students transitioning in to college level math and in high school. I have taught Regents Math and have tutored Regents Math, Chemistry and Living Environment Regents with a 100% pass rate.

Very professional.

Joyce tutored my daughter in Pre-Calculus. She is a patient tutor who was able to help my daughter bring up her grade significantly. I recommend Joyce!
