About Joanne

I am deeply committed to teaching and have tutored and taught both children and adults. My work has extended around the globe, working here in Madison and internationally, in Germany, China, and Malaysia. My specialty is English as a Second Language (ESL). I have taught all proficiency levels from beginners to advanced speakers. My classes were tailored to the students’ needs and covered such topics as grammar, conversational skills, reading, presentation skills, creative writing, and business writing and taking the TOEFL.

My educational background reflects my strong interest in ESL and languages. I hold a Master’s in English and Applied Linguistics (ESL) from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I also hold a Master’s in Public Policy from the University of Minnesota. My Bachelor’s degree is in Chinese Language and Studies from the University of Minneapolis-Twin Cities

I have a lot of experience with one-on-one tutoring and my students do very well.

When I took the PSAT I had the highest score in my city. I understand what the test requires and how to tutor a student in doing well on it.

I am an excellent tutor who can work with you on whatever skills you want to improve. I have many years of experience and many students who still tell me how much I helped them. Let's find out how much you can improve together.
