About Jo Ann

I most enjoy teaching writing and speaking - communication, in other words. I believe in simple, clear language, and appreciate a well-stated thought. Effective communication varies with the situation, so we all need to be able to speak in many different types of words.

A good vocabulary is essential for success, as is a clear writing style and clear thoughts to express. If the thoughts are on the mark, but the writing isn't, the grade will be lower, and vice-versa.

I enjoy grammar, writing and literature. I taught vocabulary, literature, English for speakers of other languages, public speaking, parliamentary procedure, writing, adult Sunday school and Bible study, and have done some professional writing and editing. My two Masters degrees are in Liberal Studies and Public Policy and Management, which provide me with a broad background of philosophy and practical skill.

I believe that I could help students improve their scores on the SAT/ACT tests or to reach any goal they set.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Bible Studies

I taught adult Sunday school to adults for 30 years, 9 or 10 week Bible studies several times since then, a Bible study that covered 85% of the Bible three times, and took training to be a pastor for approximately a year.

Microsoft Windows

I have used Microsoft Windows for probably 15-20 years. Currently I am using a MAC computer and still have a Windows computer, so I am learning a new system (MAC). With Windows, I have done Excel spreadsheets, Word documents, desktop publishing with PageMaker, internet explorer for website exploration, and email.

I have used computers professionally for desktop publishing, budgeting a million dollar agency budget, writing speeches, editing articles and grants, and many many other things.

I would enjoy teaching these things to other people who want to learn.
