About JOANNA

I am a lifelong learner and a voracious reader. I have loved reading since I was two years old. I actually taught myself to read. The library was the first place I went as a child. I have always been good at academic work.

I served as a volunteer teacher at Sayre High School during the fall of 2007. This was a program for at-risk youth. The program was entitled, "The Neuroscience Pipeline" and involved volunteer undergraduates from the Biological Basis of Behavior curriculum at the University of Pennsylvania serving as teaching assistants to tenth graders. Gifted undergraduates at the University of Pennsylvania went into the high schools of West Philadelphia to introduce basic neuroscience concepts to the students with the ultimate goal of stimulating their interest in pursuing a career in medicine.

I am currently a PhD student with a GPA of 4.0. I worked for 11 years as an editor, proofreader, and reviewer of scholarly manuscripts. I possess excellent writing ability and have written numerous scholarly articles. I am also a reviewer for the American Journal of Public Health and a member of the Golden Key International Honor Society. Golden Key is the world's largest collegiate honor society. Membership into the Society is by invitation only and applies to the top 15% of college and university.

Literacy is very important to me. As an agent of social change as well as a lover of children, I believe I can assist learners from elementary school through grad school and beyond.

As an 11th grader, my English teacher allowed me to grade all of the homework and test papers because I never had any incorrect answers.

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.

Proofreading

I possess 11 years experience as a proofreader/editor of scholarly writing. I have also held several online freelance writing positions. I worked for a content developer for travel guides and tours that was founded in 2008 by two Yale School of Management alumni seeking a better way for locals and tourists to experience the cities they live in and travel to. To develop the work products, I was required to summarize information from various reference sites in my own words. The function of my job was to contribute to the development of audio tour guides. I also completed a series of scientific research articles as part of a freelance writing position for a graduate student from Japan and wrote three grants for a non-profit organization that serves disadvantaged youth in Phoenix, Arizona. I hold a BA in psychology from the University of Pennsylvania, a Master of Public Health from Temple University and am a current PhD student at Walden University. Walden University is online, which means that I conduct all of my classroom activity online. I believe being an online student makes me uniquely qualified for this assignment. I would be glad to provide writing samples for your convenience.

Reading

I am a dissertation student with a 4.0 GPA. I possess excellent written, oral, and electronic communication skills. I have experience working with children and I am very patient. I offer an individualized learning experience because I believe every student has unique needs. I will gladly provide my CV if you would like. I have been around books all of my life and am a voracious reader. I taught myself to read prior to attending school. I have a bachelor of arts in psychology from the University of Pennsylvania, a master of public health from Temple University and I will soon have a PhD in public health from Walden University. Walden University is online, which means that I conduct all of my classroom activity online. I believe each of the aforementioned attributes uniquely qualify me for a position as an online reading tutor for your child.
