Hey :) My name is Joy and I've been a teacher now going on 11 years. Previously I've taught 1st and 4th-8th grades; specifically English language arts to 6-8th grades. Currently I teach technology and provide intervention to grades K-8. I'm single and have lots of free time now that most of my immediate family has moved out of state within the last year. I feel I have much to offer in the tutoring field and have tutored in the past just not ever used an online platform like Wyzant and wanted to give it a try.
I have past students and parents that continually tell me how much I helped their child learn in middle school that truly helped them succeed in high school, especially in English language arts, grammar, and vocabulary. I try even still to complement these areas in my computer lab classes to support the classroom teacher in teaching core content.
On a personal note, I mentor a few 6-8th grade students as well and after they graduate have remained in touch with some! I feel it's important to develop a good solid yet fun learning partnership without crossing boundaries. Feeling comfortable and finding a tutor who is the right fit is key to successful learning!
I am highly qualified K-8 in Reading language arts, academic vocabulary, SAT /ACT vocabulary.
I am a previous children's librarian.
I would love to hear from you and set up a free consultation. We can do that in person, on the phone, Google hangouts, however! I'm flexible and know life can be crazy, so please try to give a 12 hour notice to reschedule or cancel if at all possible. Hey :) My name is Joy and I've been a teacher now going on 11 years.

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.
I have a Tennessee State Certification to teach K-8 all subjects obtained & current as well as a highly qualified status in Reading language Arts grades K-8, per my scores on the Praxis Exam PLT Principles of Learning & Teaching taken in August 2015.
Personally, I've taken the Praxis exam three times, most recently in August 2015. Specifically, I took and passed the Principals of Learning & Teaching exam to score high enough to keep my highly qualified status in Reading Language Arts K-8 and all subjects, except music and art K-6 which I did.
I'm highly qualified in Reading/L.Arts K-8 :)
