About Joyce

I am a half-Ugandan, half Black American who was born in Washington DC. I have lived in Alexandria, Virginia for most of my life. I like travelling but I spend most of my time as a student, learning all I can, I don't travel much any more. I am in school at George Mason for grad school but I spend most of my time in the education field. I also spend my free time singing.

I love tutoring because I can spend time with my student trying to work on specific things to improve their progress. We can work together to meet specific goals which would be harder in a larger group. I also like that tutoring is not as formal. The learner is able to relax and be comfortable while we work out what is best for them!

I'm am in the process of obtaining my TESOL certificate.

I have been a tutor since I was 16 years old tutoring younger kids. I have substituted for Fairfax country Public Schools for about 2 years and taught as a special education teachers assistant here I have had to work one-on-one with 2-3 grade kids. I also worked in a Spanish immersion environment with 2nd graders. Even though my current degree is for adult language acquisition, I have experience with teaching children as well.

I have done home-school tutoring since I was 16 years old. I have experience with formal curriculum but also cater my lessons based on where the deficit lies in my learners and to some extent, pay attention to learning style.

I would really love to teach you just as long as you are willing to learn! I will never get frustrated and never give up trying to teach you in a way that you will understand. We can work together to ensure your progress!!!
