I have 7 years of teaching math experience in the public school system. I have taught 6th grade, 7th grade, algebra, geometry, Integrated Math I, Integrated Math I support and AP Calculus BC. I have had 100% pass rates in my AP classes for the past 2 years.
I am a UCLA graduate with a Masters in Education and a Bachelors in Pure Mathematics.
I am a strong believer in helping students understand the mathematics versus memorizing procedures.
We love Joyce, she is very patient and takes the time to break things down so my daughter understands the problems. My daughter's starting to feel more confident in her work and has shown great improvement, she's gone from F's and D's to B's and A's. We are very happy with Joyce and would recommend her to anyone that is struggling with Math.
Joyce is very patient and understanding with my daughters, and she has an excellent command of the course material. She is able to quickly assess the areas in which they are having difficulties, teach them the proper problem solving techniques, and then reinforce this learning with further applications.
Working with Joyce has helped me understand trigonometry, statistics, and logarithms in a short time span and was able to bring up my grade a lot.
Whenever a student struggles, I use questioning techniques to find the source of the struggle first. I then build up the skills and understanding from that point.
I am a strong believer of understanding the concept versus procedural understanding. I really make sure my students understand the why of the mathematics through questioning.
I have 9 years of public school experience teaching mathematics. I have taught full year long classes of 6th grade math, 7th grade math, algebra, geometry Integrated Math I, AP Calculus BC.
For the past two years, my AP class has had 100% pass rates.
