About Joan

Hello and Welcome. My name is Joan and I am interested in helping children succeed. I have one year experience as a second grade teacher and several months experience as a preschool teacher and teacher's aide. I have elementary teaching credentials in Oregon, California, and Montana.

My undergraduate degree is in Elementary Education from Southern Oregon University and completed my teacher prep program at California Lutheran University. During my school experience I worked with all elementary grade levels, special education, and ELL, as well as had the opportunity to differentiate information for small groups and individual students to ensure their success and am able to do this for all subjects.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I hold elementary teaching credentials in the states of California, Oregon and Montana. I have 3 years experience as a substitute teacher at the elementary level, 2 years experience as a tutor in that level and 5 years volunteering and/or student teaching in elementary grades. I also taught full time for 1 year in the second grade.

Phonics

As an elementary teacher credentialed in the state of California, I was required to take the RICA (Reading Instruction Competence Assessment) test, which I passed. This test covers all areas of teaching reaching skills, including phonics and phonemic awareness. Before my teacher preparation program allowed me to take this test I was required to do a case study of a student in my student teaching placement where I diagnosed his needs and developed and implemented lessons to meet those needs. Phonics and Phonemic Awareness were his strongest needs and he improved in both areas.
