About Joanne

My name is Joanne, and I live to help students unleash their incredible potentials and achieve their wildest dreams.

From 2014-2016, I worked as a High School Special Education teacher with Teach for America (TFA), after graduating from Rice University with a degree in Neuroscience. I have tutored for over 6 years with Wyzant, Revolution Prep, Elite Private Tutors (EPT), and the Center for Academic and Psychological Services (CAPS) in Houston, Texas.

- With Revolution Prep, I increased students' overall SAT scores by an average of 263 points and at EPT I raised student test scores by an average of 2 letter grades.

- While working at CAPS Houston, I empowered students to overcome learning differences fueled by ADD/ADHD, anxiety, learning disability, autism, and depression in order to achieve success both academically and personally. My time as a TFA SPED teacher allowed me to further hone my abilities to accommodate for special needs and learning differences.

It is my passion to give ALL learners the confidence and skills they need to excel by creating customized learning plans for my students. If I sound like a good fit for you or your child, message me to begin our cooperative learning journey.

When not equipping students with the tools they need for their futures, I love playing the celtic harp, practicing Ashtanga yoga, and dancing salsa, swing, and African dance styles.

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.

Great Tutor

Joanne did a great job communicating her schedule with me prior to the tutoring session with my son. She also had some great ideas for him on how to get organized. My son can be a bit stubborn at times and when she experienced this she did a good job working with him to find a solution.
