I am Nancy and I am tutor with WyzAnt. I am certified to tutor 30 subjects with WyzAnt. When I am not tutoring, I am a part-time child, teen and adult counselor/therapist and a college professor. I have a BA in Psychology, a Master's in Counseling and am ABD for my PhD in Psychology. I use proven learning and tutoring methods to teach you (or your child).

I tutor children, teens, and adults from Special Ed (ADHD/ADD, etc.) students to gifted students in English, Social Studies, Biology, Literature, English, Spelling, History, Computers, Vocabulary, Writing, Anatomy, and Psychology... AND MORE - just ask. I tutor all national standardized tests such as the SAT, ACT, GRE, and HSPT. Also, I edit papers, theses, and dissertations.

I also teach any students who wants to learn - Study Skills, which includes general student organization, (books, notes, study area, etc.) time management, task management, reading for comprehension, note taking, doing homework, test prep and test study skills.

I am available days, evenings and weekends and will typically meet at any Library in the area - kids especially, do better in a structured place away from home distractions for tutoring.

Finally, I offer a free 'meet and greet' session - so you can get to know me before you make a decision as to which tutor is right for you. We can meet for 30-60 minutes to discuss your individual needs!

ADD/ADHD

I have been a therapist for about 20 years, working with children, adolescents and adults. I hold a BA in Psychology, an MS in Counseling, and an ABD for a PhD in Psychology. I can assess and treat ADHD, and can tutor people who have it.

Elementary (K-6th)

As well as being a psychotherapist for over 20 years, the Director of a Child Psychiatric Unit, and a college professor, I have substitute taught in K-6 for over 10 years.

I am very well versed in the K-6 curriculum, including, but not limited to math, earth and regular science, history and social studies, language arts, especially reading, study skills, and reading comprehension. I can teach children to read and write as well as learn how to learn and study.

My approach to tutoring K-6 children is to assess their needs, design a program for them to learn and continue to assess their progress.

I make learning fun and challenging, providing verbal rewards throughout our work time.

Handwriting

Millions of students all over the world use the "Handwriting Without Tears" program! And so do I! This easy-to-learn curriculum makes handwriting mastery easy for students. I have extensive training and 4 certificates to teach this method!

Research supports the active teaching of handwriting. Recent findings demonstrate that writing by hand improves creative writing skills and fine motor skills. In fact, elementary students have been found to write more and faster by hand than when keyboarding.

And with the adoption of the Common Core State Standards, the emphasis and expectations placed on classroom note-taking and expository writing in grades K–5 is greater than ever.

Microsoft Access

As a college professor, I require my students to learn and use the whole set of Microsoft Office packages. I can teach anyone how to use these, in person or over the computer!

Microsoft Outlook

As a college professor, I require my students to learn and use the whole set of Microsoft Office packages. I can teach anyone how to use these, in person or over the computer!

Phonics

I teach those phonics using a variety of methods the incorporate reading, hearing and writing. I use games, worksheets and reading/writing to master these skills.

Public Speaking

I am ABD for a PhD in Psychology. As such, I am a professional with the credentials to assist people in overcoming their panic and fears regarding public speaking. I also present, and can help anyone to learn, the basics of public speaking.

Special Needs

I have been a therapist for about 20 years, treating people with Special Needs. I hold a BA in Psychology, an MS in Counseling and am ABD for a PhD in Psychology. I can assess and treat people with special needs, and can tutor people with it as well.

Study Skills

Problems in school? Notes don't give you enough information to pass the test? Low concentration? I also tutor study skills. As a practicing psychotherapist, I can help identify school related issues. As a lifelong student myself and current Psychology doctoral candidate, I have successfully navigated study skills. As well, as part of being a college professor, I teach my students proven methods such as, SQ3R and individualized methods such as proper note-taking, reading for comprehension, problem solving for all subjects (math word problems, essays etc), learning styles, and test-taking skills. I tutor Elementary school students through Graduate School students.

TEAS

The TEAS is the Test of Essential Academic Skills and includes Math, Reading, Science and Reading Comprehension. I hold a BA in Psychology, an MS in Counseling and am ABD for a PhD. I tutor the TEAS test based on basic academic skills premises.
