Hi!

I'm Nancy. I am a professional tutor in math and language arts. I have also taught and tutored biology, health, chemistry Earth science, physical science and algebra over the last 16 years of teaching career. My teaching credential is in biology/chemistry. Biology is my favorite subject! I understand it well and enjoy discussing it, giving relevant examples for tricky subjects, and so on. I like to simplify things as I respect your intelligence.

I am currently a professional tutor and have worked with several different tutoring companies, so I have a solid grasp on tutoring effectively.

I have a son in college, Riley, and Krista (we call her Kristorama), my daughter, just finished her college degree in liberal arts and is now back home, wondering how she ended up back here. At any rate, I put both of my children into tutoring early on, and I believe and have seen what a difference it can make!

Let me know if your are interested!

I'd be happy to help.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ESL/ESOL

I have been a high school teacher for over 13 years. I am certified to teach students whose first language is NOT English, but are being required to do schoolwork in English. Certification in teaching language learners was a part of my teaching credential requirement. I have been receiving updated professional development on teaching language learners every year.
If you are having trouble with the English language in general or if you are struggling with comprehending your assignments please contact me and I will be happy to help. If you need help particularly in science because of a language issue, I'm your girl!

Study Skills

I am qualified to teach Study Skills because I am a veteran teacher of 16 years who has had to share with families and students effective ways to study to succeed.
