Through tutoring, coaching, consulting, and writing services, I help people excel academically, professionally, and in broader life. Whether it?s teaching English or how to use a computer app, at the core of what I do is literacy. Beyond the ability to read and write, today "literacy" includes being able to access, evaluate, and communicate information across many platforms?most of which are digital. Likewise, I don't just help students learn content or test-taking strategies, but "how to le...

Joy helped me in planning and writing my resume and was punctual on the time we agreed to meet on. She even gave me tips on what to put on the resume, what potential employers want on the resume file names, and checked the resume to make sure there are no errors on formatting and punctuation. I would definitely work with Joy and recommend her to any college student wanting to make a resume.

If you are looking for someone who is flexible with their schedule, Joy is not your person, My mother was just diagnosed with Cancer and I had to meet with the doctors to determine the best treatment at the time that my son, she and I were supposed to meet and determine if she was a fit. I contacted her around 4:30 pm and our meeting were supposed to be 3:00 pm the next day to reschedule to the 9:30 am and asked if we 1/2 hour could be good. Although my son could make the meeting, I couldn't and Joy wanted us both on the call. She responded that she would change the appointment from 9:30-10:30 but if for some reason we did not meet, she will charge the $60 because she didn't get 24 hours notice. Understanding as a tutor myself how important time is, I was still taken aback by her insensitiveness to my situation, It was the hardest day of our lives and I felt kicked while down. The human side never came out and she never even mentioned my mother. It was then that I realized that she was not going to be a fit for my son who struggled with time management, organization, and prioritization, the skills that she was supposed to help him with. Children like him need accountability but at the same time understanding to keep going when they fall short. I knew then that if she couldn't show empathy to my situation, I knew that she would not be able to help my son.

Even after one lesson, Joy's approach to my son was very welcoming. She spoke to him in a friendly manner that was not intimidating. She gave us the tools we need to let him succeed and helped to guide us to get started to make sure he can reach the best of his ability. We very much feel we made the right choice with Joy and look forward to working with her!

Joy taught me Microsoft and Mac stuff and was very adaptable to my needs and understanding. She was incredibly prompt and professional. She is obviously very experienced.

Joy has been an engaging tutor for our two sons. While it is early in the process she has found creative ways to engage our sons in key subject matter. We appreciate her scheduling flexibility that has made it possible to fit tutoring sessions in our busy schedules.
- Fred A. from Takoma Park, MD
For my business class, learned to be prepared for the unexpected always and to be professional. Also went over time management, and balance. Very knowledgeable in entrepreneurship, and that these things are just as important as having a good business plan.
- Christopher P. from Bowie, MD
I had great tutoring experience with Joy. In less than 2 hours session time, I had learned new writing skills (template format and outline); understanding the assignment; how to overcome fears of writing or project tasks; and inspirational messages to help me along my journey within my career and personally. I highly recommend Joy!
- Marie H. from Alexandria, VA
We went over current assignments as well as my overall writing skills. She had a unique and intelligent approach and it was an extremely positive experience.

Joy is able to help my 6 year old get excited about learning. It's such a relief to have her helping to solidify the basics and go in the right direction from there.
- Lewis T. from Silver Spring, MD
Joy is very organized and helped my son to be an organized writer. She began the sessions by really discussing the thought process that should occur before pen goes to paper. She stressed to my son the importance of thinking about the work that was just read. She helped my son strengthen his thesis statement for his paper. She then taught my son how to create a "flow chart" to organize his thoughts and to build an outline prior to beginning to write. With Joy's guidance on preparing an outline to organize thoughts before writing, my son received an A on his first analytical paper for AP US History. I love that she has given my son a strategy for approaching written assignments. I also appreciate that she has given him a tools for reflecting on the material he has read. She really has taught him how to analyze a piece of writing. He has had great success!!!

I walked into the session knowing a little about Quickbooks online, and walked out knowing so much more. Joy walked me thru step by step the areas I needed help with and did it in a way that enabled me to learn it...not just observe it. I would recommend Joy to anyone who is looking to master Quickbooks online.
- Guy S. from Bethesda, MD
Based on positive reviews/feedback contacted Joy for assistance with our middle school student needing assistance with English Language Arts. If our initial tutoring session is an indication of what is to come we believe this will be a great fit for us. Look forward to working with Joy.
- Richard B. from Silver Spring, MD
