Hello, my name is Joyce. Thank you for checking out my profile! I am NYS certified for mathematics, grades 7-12. I hold a Bachelor's of Arts in Math and a Master's in Math Education, both from IONA College in New Rochelle, New York. I have tutored math for the past 23 years, all levels, children, teens and adults. I was a math teacher for 15 years. I taught PreAlgebra, Algebra1, Geometry, Algebra2, Trigonometry, Personal Finance and PreCalculus. I worked with thousands of students in traditional, honors level, College level, and collaborative classroom settings. Now only tutoring, I love that I can focus my energy tutoring, spending more time with my family, and doing more Zumba!
I will always make my explanations clear and understood. I like to take a math problem step-by-step. I can explain a problem in multiple ways. After 15 years of teaching, I like to think I’m an expert at deciding which method to choose after a quick assessment with a student.
For older students, I am an expert with the TI Calculators. The online whiteboard learning offered on Wyzant is amazing, and teaching math is very easy using their online tutoring technology. I like to type as I talk (yes, I type very fast!) so that a student doesn’t have to remember what I said for notes, a great asset for visual learners.
For elementary students, I like to use manipulatives like fraction tiles and base 10 blocks alongside traditional methods, great for visual and tactile learners. I play games to make things more fun. I can teach with every common core method, just like a textbook. Online learning is made very colorful when I cut and paste pictures of fractions, bar graphs or other visuals, just like in a classroom.
I currently charge $60 per hour for online tutoring, and $70 per hour for in person sessions near Pelham, NY. I require a 12 hour cancellation notice. I hope that I am the math tutor that best fits your needs, either for online tutoring or in-person sessions. Please contact me with any questions, I look forward to your inquiry.
