About Jo Ann


I am a mother of four grown children and a former Pre-school and First grade teacher. My experiences as a Mom have taught me the differences in children, patience, kindness, a love of learning and most importantly the fact that all children have the desire to learn. They may all learn differently (as they did in my family)....but with patience and understanding all children are capable. I try in incorporate fun into learning sessions and know that younger children have time restrictions. Everyone needs a little break! Having two children with very different learning disabilities has taught me to tailor their academic sessions to fit their needs to be successful.

As a former teacher and now wit a new mature perspective I have life skills to help reach out to children. Academics are important, but so are the needs for confidence and building a good foundation for learning. Fostering a love of learning through reading is a skill that all children can take into future academic endeavors and into adulthood.
Books open the door to the rest of the world and all that surrounds us. I can open that door to build confidence and fun into learning!
