Motivated, Leader, Enthusiastic
Hi! I’m Joyce! I’m an Academic Coach for Staying Ahead of the Game!, LLC. I attended the University of Alabama where I received my BS in Secondary Education with a focus on Mathematics and was honored as a Presidential Scholar. It was during my college experience that my love for working with students grew. I was a University Honors teaching assistant and a math department tutor at the university. The rewarding feeling of investing in each of my students is something that continues to be important to me today.
I really appreciate Staying Ahead of the Game’s holistic approach – it takes so much more to succeed in school than thoroughly knowing the subject matter. I remind students to take time to breathe and enjoy life, especially when the pressures of school, grades, and extra-curriculars become intense. My past work involved managing restaurants and local businesses. Through these experiences, I learned the need to be organized and be mindful of how I am spending all of my time. I teach my students these skills so they can be more successful both in the classroom and in life.
