About Joanne

Passionate about education, teaching, and learning, I enjoy working with and teaching adults and children of all ages. I enjoy helping others learn in ways that are creative and fun. My professional background as a Life Coach helps me to listen well and be patient while staying focused on your goals.

I worked as a teaching assistant with elementary school age school children with special needs. My patience, ability to connect with a variety of students, and commitment to bringing out the best in others are qualities that support students in having a positive learning experience.

I have been a teaching assistant and tutor in an ESL class for adults and have completed ESL Instructor training through the Literacy Coalition.

I have also taught Creative Drama to children ages 3 - 12 and I have led a variety of workshops for adults of all ages.

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.

Career Development

I worked in Human Resources for 15 years and then as a Life Coach for the past 12 years. I also taught career transition classes (resume building, interviewing skills, networking skills) as a volunteer for 5 years.

I am skilled at helping others prepare for interviews, improve their resume, identify their strengths and skills, and many other aspects of career development.

I interviewed and hired numerous people during my career in HR, so I am skilled at knowing the types of questions that are asked during interviews and can effectively help others to prepare for this process.

Microsoft Outlook

I used Microsoft Outlook for many years and I have helped others with it as well.

Public Speaking

I was an active member of Toastmaster's for 6 years and of Speaking Circles for 5 years. I have much experience in public speaking in my 15 years in Human Resources and in my 12 years as a Life Coach.

I also have experience as a public speaker in various volunteer positions.
