About this tutor

I'm serious about helping you with your math and physics. And I have LOTS of experience doing just that!

I hold two master's degrees -- one in applied mathematics, one in physics. I started teaching math in 1999. While many of the intervening years saw me as a part-time adjunct instructor of mathematics, I did enjoy a full-time appointment to the math faculty of Alabama A&M University for 5 of those years. I have also used my skills in industry and government, most notably at NASA and Intergraph.

I've taught just about every undergraduate math course and tutored some graduate ones, too. I started out teaching introductory statistics and probability for several semesters at Oakwood College (now Oakwood University). I have also taught at UAH, Strayer, and Calhoun. I am familiar with the undergrad curriculum. I've tutored students from schools all over north Alabama and even one or two from south-central Tennessee -- high school and college.

I have tutored students from pre-algebra to differential equations (and in an assortment of "off-road" courses like business calculus, statistics, discrete math, finance, graduate psychology statistics, etc.). Some students have followed me through their entire undergraduate career: trigonometry, calculus 1-2-3, differential equations, and linear algebra. High school students, too, have stayed with me from pre-algebra through two algebras and geometry into pre-calculus or even calculus. I foster loyalty by making the student a priority.

I also have a depth and breadth of experience that helps me help you figure many of the WHY's of the math you are tasked to learn, and I know the really salient points that you need to hang onto as you progress.

Drop me a line if you have any questions! I want to help.

The best thing is when my students learn to think for themselves - - intellectual curiosity, critical thinking, resource coralling, etc.

    I thought my grade in Math 112 was unrecoverable before meeting with Ms. Joy, now I have the highest grade I have ever had in a math class! I have always thought of math as my least favorite subject, but now I actually enjoy doing my homework because Ms. Joy is explains the "hows" and "whys" of each problem. She is extremely patient and encouraging! I love to text her after finishing a test because we both celebrate my score together! She is also very flexible and has worked closely with me to figure out the best times to meet. I could not recommend her more!
