About Joanna

I hold a BA in anthropology from SUNY Cortland. My major GPA was a 3.92. I continued my study of anthropology in graduate school by obtaining an MA from New York University in museum studies.

I've spent the last five years advising graduate students at Cornell. Spending time with students brings a lot of joy to my life and I'm looking to expand that into a tutoring practice. School has always been my happy place and I love to learn -- it's a big part of the reason why I never want to leave higher education! Students can get bogged down by course requirements, core curriculum, memorizing for tests, and so on. I'm here to remind you that learning can, and should!, be a fun and soul-enriching activity.

My undergraduate background is in anthropology and the social sciences. In my graduate studies, I chose to focus on anthropology's place in museums. I have a deep love for the social sciences as a whole and enjoy fostering that love for the subject in others.

I've been a voracious reader since childhood and I'm the aunt that gives books for birthday presents. Reading has been such an integral part of my life -- one doesn't survive grad school without mastering the skill -- and I'm incredibly passionate about helping others find the perfect book that speaks to them.

My handwriting has been described as "happy" on multiple occasions. I take pride in the dying art of penmanship and am happy to teach others how to slow down, take control of the writing instrument, and express themselves in the written word. Cursive and neat print are just too beautiful not to be taught.

I'm able to travel for tutoring or you're welcome to my house in Cayuga Heights. If you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you!

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.
