About Joan

I am a retired special education teacher who also taught many years in a regular education classroom. I have taught grades 2-6. I have taught in the states and Puerto Rico, in public and private schools.

I have particular skills in teaching reading and elementary math, but would be able to tutor older students in English. I have worked with students of many personalities and disabilities. I believe I can relate well to my students and help bring out the best in them.

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.

I was raised in a church that teaches the Bible. I taught Bible in a Christian school. I have taken several seminary courses.
