About Joan

I love learning and helping others to achieve their academic goals! A large part of my life has been spent in school, having received a BA in French and Education from Lehman College, graduating #1 in my class at Marist College with an MBA in Accounting and Finance, and receiving certification in Medical Transcription from BOCES in New York. Although my teaching certification has lapsed, I have spent the last 25 years academically assisting family members and children of friends who have special needs given their diagnoses of Aspergers and ADHD. This has included active participation in the development of IEPs and providing support for these families. Happily, these children have gone on to successfully complete school, from elementary through college, and I believe this reflects my qualifications.

As a tutor, my primary objective is to provide students with a set of tools that enable them to achieve academic success and confidence in their abilities, by growing their fund of knowledge and critical thinking skills. This, in turn, helps them to develop as individuals. By employing interactive lessons that include lecture and discussion, real world applications, as well as hypothetical situations, students are able to more clearly understand concepts.

Of paramount importance is developing a relationship based on trust and mutual respect between tutor and student. This is critical to ensure an optimum learning experience and, happily, I been successful in this regard. As part of this effort, and because each student develops at a different rate with his or her own learning style, I work to customize my teaching methods to address individual needs. Finally, struggling students need support and encouragement, which is a very important part of every tutoring session. Let me work with your student and help them to successfully face their challenges in school as well as in life.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

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.

ADD/ADHD

Although my teaching certification has lapsed, I have spent the last 25 years helping to teach and guide individuals with ADD and ADHD who are both family and the children of friends. In addition, this has included active participation in the development of IEPs and providing support for families of these individuals. These children have gone on to successfully complete schooling, from elementary through college, and I believe this reflects my qualifications.
