About JoAnn

I have 25 years of experience working in Special Education, in which I hold a Master's degree. I have taught in both New York State, Connecticut and New Kent County. I hold a Professional Educator license in Virginia and "Highly Qualified" status in Elementary Mathematics and Language Arts and Middle School Mathematics.

Since retiring I have done some substitute teaching in Williamsburg/James City schools in the regular elementary classrooms and am familiar with the philosophy and curriculum of the schools. I have tutored elementary and middle school students in the past. I have extensive training in the Orton-Gillingham approach to reading, some Wilson reading and Voyager's Mathematics. I have much experience in teaching organizational skills, note taking and study skills.

I have worked with LD students, autism spectrum disordered students, and students with ADHD.

I have a positive and easy manner and believe that all students can be successful.

On a personal note, I have raised four children. I have "walked the walk."

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.
