About Joanne

Hello!

My name is Joanne and I'm certified teacher and a professional tutor. I've been in the field of education for 15 years. I have a BA and a Master's in Education.

I tutor a number of English related areas, including writing, grammar, vocabulary, and ELL.
In addition, I have extensive experience tutoring SAT and ACT Prep. I teach the English, Grammar, Reading, and Science portions of these tests.
I also prep students for the GRE, SSAT, and GED, among others.

I love teaching content, but what I really love is helping students; it doesn't matter how old they are or where they're from. I just like being a part of a student's academic success! It's exciting to me, and I feel that enthusiasm is conveyed to my students, which makes for a good learning environment!

There are so many tutors out there, but not all are created equal. You definitely want someone who is a certified teacher in the content area that you need help in. In addition, you want someone who has had a recent BCI check, and one who can provide you with solid references. Finally, a good tutor has an established track record of success that she will be able to share with you.

I have all of the above characteristics, so it may be worth your while to consider contacting me to explore the possibility of working together!
I welcome any inquiries and questions. I look forward to working with you in the future. Good luck in all of your academic endeavors!

Thanks!
Joanne

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.

Speech

I've been a high school and college English teacher for 17 years. Part of the curriculum is public speaking. I've worked with hundreds of students to help them strengthen their oral communications/public speaking skills. This is a sensitive subject because many people are afraid of public speaking. As such, I start slow and build both the skills and confidence of my students. You will be in good hands. :)

Study Skills

I've taught study skills to many students in the course of my career. I've worked extensively with students who have learning disabilities, organizational issues, ADHD, and other issues that make studying a challenge. In addition, I have worked with many high achieving students, both in a school setting and as a private tutor, and have worked with them on study skills such as test taking strategies, time management, identifying individual learning modalities, etc.

Finally, I've taught a formal Study Skills class at the post secondary level, in a Nursing Program
