About Joy

Hello! My name is Joy. I have been an adult educator for most of my life. Helping adults further their education is my passion. I have taught classes in electronics, basic computer drafting, emergency medical technology, and shelter operations (Red Cross). At the moment, I am teaching basic arithmetic to an adult. In the past, I have tutored privately in high school level Algebra. I have a Bachelors in Educational Studies, and I am a Masters of Education student in Instructional Design. While I prefer working with adults, I would be open to working with teens. I have a special -needs adult son, and would also consider a special-needs student of any age.

My approach to tutoring is student-centered. This means you are in charge of your learning. I guide you in choosing your path, help you get back up when you stumble, and just as important, I will cheer your successes. In most classes, especially math, there will be homework, and I will expect it to be finished. We will correct it together, because we sometimes learn more from our mistakes than our successes.

The best part of teaching or tutoring is watching the "light go on," when a student understands. While being on the other side of the desk is awesome, being with students individually is where I shine. I enjoy tailoring lessons to the individual, so do not be surprised by the question, "What do you do for fun?"

I would be delighted to meet you and see if I can assist you in your learning. "Have knowledge, will travel."

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.

GED

I currently volunteer as a tutor with Project Read. My learner's current subject is basic arithmetic. My passion is adult workforce education.

Proofreading

I am very detail-oriented. Twice I have amazed professors by finding major textbook errors. I was a champion speller.

Vocabulary

I am strong in vocabulary, often using words I have to explain. I do know how to use words that are more easily understood, and relate to students.
