Math for me was a mystery until the lights turned on through an excellent teacher in high school. I know first hand how guided learning can change math from frustration to freedom. Who would have thought I would be teaching math and loving it after so many years struggling in junior high and high school! Besides teaching and tutoring math, I homeschooled four children K-12. Two of them are now engineering students in college.
Your child likely has mental roadblocks in solving math problems. They may think, "I can't do this," and that is their biggest roadblock of all! I eat roadblocks for breakfast! Your child will learn the paths around these blocks as I give them tools to solve problems they feel are impossible. As they see small victories, they find their steps around these road blocks, and they leave them behind!
Your son or daughter doesn't need the course to be retaught. They need someone to figure out the precise pieces that are missing in their understanding. I will find those missing pieces and complete the picture. You want an analyst, coach and encourager for your child. I've had experience with students who are several years behind their grade level in math. I have often brought them back to grade level. And even more than that, some came to enjoy the challenge of math.
The lights went on for me. Do you want me to turn them on for your child? Math for me was a mystery until the lights turned on through an excellent teacher in high school.

Joanne was a great tutor for my son taking Geometry this year. She greatly assisted him in understanding the concepts. She would rearrange her schedule if my son had a midterm or final exam to extend the session in preparation. She is a very nice and patient tutor. I give her my highest recommendation.
My son has had three sessions with Joanne and each one has been very valuable and has assisted with his understanding of geometry concepts greatly. He got low grades on his first quiz and test, and after working with Joanne, he got a 80% and 100% on his next two quizzes!
Joanne rearranged her schedule to tutor my son for two hours to help him prepare for a end-of-quarter geometry test. Her help was invaluable and it resulted in my son receiving a B on the test (and hopefully higher with some corrections). Thank you Joanne for your great tutoring!
Joanne helped my daughter prepare for her SAT's. After each session our daughter felt very encouraged and more confident. She took the SAT's last Saturday and feels that she did very well because of the guidance and instruction she received from Joanne. We can not recommend Joanne enough! She is knowledgeable, patient, encouraging, and is an excellent tutor.
She has a great way with both my children. They both feel empowered with a subject neither of them like or have a strong foundation in.
I can honestly say that the complete tutoring process from start to finish with Joanne exceeded all of our expectations. I highly recommend her to any family that may need any Geometry tutoring.
Joanne W. has been such a great tutor for my daughter and has helped her tremendously with her 10th grade geometry. My daughter looks forward to her sessions with Joanne which have provide the additional help she needs and has also given her the confidence she was lacking in this class. Her grades have consistently improved since she started her sessions with Joanne and just as important, Joanne is a tutor that truly cares about her students- her follow through and kindness is something that is hard to find today. I would highly recommend Joanne as a tutor for any child in need of additional guidance in math- she is truly a wonderful person and an excellent tutor!!
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.
Joanne W. passed a background check on 9/2/14. The check was ordered by Joanne through First Advantage. For more information, please review the background check information page.
After sending a message to Joanne, you will be able to order a new background check for $7.99. As part of your tutor selection process, we encourage you to run updated background checks. Please also review the safety tips for hiring tutors.
