"Language Tutor - English and Greek"
With what the Germans call Sprachgefuehl (feel for language), I have an intuitive grasp of the grammar and structure of English. I can tell if something doesn't sound right when I am listening to the English language. Like a musician with music, I hear all the mistakes. When I am writing, the grammar and spelling come easily, and, as with spoken English, I quickly spot printed mistakes. I am quite a good proofreader. I am not an expert in English lit, but I am very good at grammar and spellin... ... More
"20 Years Experience Teaching English and Writing"
I have twenty years' experience teaching English in every environment and with every kind of student imaginable. I have taught in a village school in Jamaica, UNC-Asheville, North Buncombe High School, the Juvenile Evaluation Center and at Christ School, a preparatory boarding school in Asheville. My teaching style is experiential as I believe every student has the capacity to connect with literature and to write very well, and I enjoy showing a student how he or she does this naturally. I be... ... More
Ellen has provided a great deal of help to my dyslexic daughter. She is very patient and has provided assistance not only in reading, but math as well. My daughter's self confidence has improved since she has started her sessions with Ellen. Ellen understands children struggling, really listened to our concerns and is always easy to reach. We are very pleased with our experience.

"Education/Learning Difference Specialist/Study Skills Expert"
All students, from elementary to post secondary, can realize their potential and reach their goals, given the right tools and strategies. This concept is the basis of my work with students- discovering their strengths and interests to motivate and support their learning. Developing study strategies and activities that teach AND reinforce their studies and mastery of a particular concept.
However, I cannot make this happen without a partner who is hopefully, motivated! Motivated or not so... ... More

"Student-focused teaching in History, Math and Science"
I originally graduated with a degree in Natural Resources from Cornell University and worked in this field for about five years. More recently, I have taken prerequisite classes at University of North Carolina in Charlotte and Asheville, finishing these courses with a 4.0 GPA.
Having scored well on my GREs (170 verbal and 160 quantitative), I know the value of good study habits. I also know from my time assisting other students during my post-baccalaureate studies that many students struggle... ... More
Joyce is a very patient tutor with my son who struggles with dyslexia. In just a few lessons my son was able to learn more than he had with several lessons with past tutors. Anyone who has a child who is struggling with reading and dyslexia can tell you how heartbreaking it is watching your child go through this. Joyce has given our son back the confidence he needs to show him that he can succeed. We are so happy we found her and are looking forward to seeing him advance significantly in this area.

"Published Author Excels at Coaching Young Writers"
Twice during my teaching experience I've had students diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome. My research on the subject revealed Asperger's as a mild form of Asperger's that is often mistakenly seen as a personality disorder. Asperger's does however share with the many manifestations of autism a difficulty in communicating, especially in matters of emotion. Physically, Aspergers people, (generally male) may flap their hands when excited and tend to walk on tip toe. It is not yet known why this is so.
Both of my students were male and in their early teen years. Both liked to play video games and ... More
