About Joan

I have 10 years of experience in the Bronxville School district. My teaching experience includes students from K-12. Reading and writing is my main subject area. Additionally, I work with international students from Asia, Eastern Europe, Spain, Brazil, France, Portugal, Italy etc.

I am patient and understanding. My goal is to help you reach your goals! My extensive experience with students of all ages has given me the practical tools to assist at a comfortable pace. I am happy to help with homework, coursework, or just help write a paper.

Reading, writing, college essays, ESL, pronunciation, conversation, business English, and public speaking are subjects that I love to teach. I enjoy working with test prep students, especially ACT English. I will help you with homework, reading assignments, organize essays or other writing assignments.

I was born and raised in New York. In addition to experience at the Bronxville School, I established an after- school Shakespeare workshop for kids and adults. I've taught ESL and ESL business courses at popular summer abroad programs in Westchester County and worked as a conversation partner at the International School in New York. I'm currently employed at a local college. I am available weekends and evenings. I look forward to working with you!
