About Joyce

My name is Joyce and I tutor all level of mathematics from elementary school through college level calculus. I have tutored since I was a college student, and have taught college level mathematics for the local community college and UH for 15 years. Prior to going into teaching, I worked as an actuary for 15 years rising to the level of Vice President of an international insurance company. I have a graduate degree from Rice University in Probability and Statistics. But, I also love algebra, geometry, and calculus.

I specialize in working with GT, PreAP, and AP students. My students have gone on to win achievement awards from their high schools in both algebra and geometry. I am also proud to report that 100% of my students have passed their final standardized tests, ranging from the GED to AP Calculus. I am a laid-back, patient tutor who will help you to enjoy and excel in mathematics. My students often tell me I make math seem so easy!

I look forward to working with you!

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.

Finite Math

I have a Masters in Mathematics from Rice University. I have taught Finite Mathematics for numerous colleges and universities for over 15 years. I have also tutored Finite Mathematics on a private basis for the last five years. I relate the topics in this course to real world scenarios from my prior work experience in industry.

Patient, sweet, and a magician

She teaches me everything! I don't even bother listening in class because I know when she explains it to me I'll actually understand what I'm doing! I absolutely love her as a tutor AND a person! She is so patient even when I don't understand the smallest thing. She's always to the point. I was HORRIBLE at math and made C's in math all through high school and now, because of Ms. Joyce, I'm making
