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!

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 an A in COLLEGE algebra! BEST LADY EVER!

Gwenna, 12 lessons with Joyce

Patient and passionate about math

Joyce and I reviewed algebra concepts. I enjoyed the way she was able to adapt her teaching methods to match my learning style. We have gone over algebra skills that I had forgotten and now I am on the way to success.

Emily, 1 lesson with Joyce

Experienced and Knowledgeable Tutor

She really knows her stuff. More importantly, she takes her time to carefully explain in an easy to understand kind of way.

Sindo, 1 lesson with Joyce

knowlegable and motivating

My daughter has only had one tutoring session with Joyce, which was the day before her quiz. She had such a better understanding that she received a 100% on her pap geometry quiz. A huge increase from her previous week's quiz.

Carmel, 8 lessons with Joyce

Very knowledgeable

I am very thankful that Joyce is helping my daughter with pre-calculus because she reinforces what she is learning in class and has helped her do well on her tests.

Mary Ann, 21 lessons with Joyce

Very patient, good understanding of material

Joyce is a great instructor for my child. She creates a very comfortable environment to ask questions and pushes to work every problem independently. She is always available for help even by phone for simple questions. She has a strong understanding of material.

Excellent Tutor/ Knows Statistics!!

I called Joyce last minute and she helped me through several undergrad Statistics assignments with ease. She's extremely knowledgeable, patient and accessible. Due to time constraints, she tutored me via email and phone and it worked perfectly for me. We will meet in person to prepare for my final! I highly recommend Joyce!

Taylor, 2 lessons with Joyce

Calm, Patient, Realistic

Joyce is patient and knows how to teach. She breaks things down and simplifies the content in order to reduce frustration (and I do get frustrated with subjects I do not enjoy!!!!). Joyce is quick to respond and makes great effort to be flexible and available.
