My name is Joni Parks and I have 31 years of experience teaching elementary school. I have a Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education from Georgia State University and am still certified to teach grades Pre- K through 5 in all Georgia schools. I am also qualified to teach reading, writing, social studies, and test prep through the 6th grade.I still enjoy working with children and especially love seeing that moment when the "light bulb comes on" and the student gets it! I believe in the importance of teaching critical thinking skills and using concrete examples to promote student learning. I also educate children to use problem solving skills and lead them step- by- step moving forward to find the correct answer. I want to develop a loving relationship with your child! I think that learning should be fun and I will strive to motivate your children to thrive!
I taught for 31 years in Georgia elementary schools. I am now retired and have been tutoring for a over a year. I have taught so many students, I couldn't give you an exact number. But over the years I have seen my students bring their achievement up to grade level, seen many make straight A's, and some qualify for the gifted program. I have also taught many students who are from foreign countries and taught them to speak, read, and write English.For 8 years I taught students in small groups who were struggling in reading and math. I saw them make so much progress and a number of them came up to grade level!
