Dear Students and Parents,
I specialize in helping students by using an active learning style called Brain Compatible Instruction. My experience over more than 30 years includes teaching students from pre-school age up to the doctoral level in both regular and exceptional education, working with kids that use English as a Second Language, teaching teachers how to teach, and evaluating home schooled children. I have received lots of recognition for my work in education, but one of my favorites was when I received the Florida Exceptional Education Teacher of the Year Award.
Hope to work with you soon.

My son has been working with Nancy twice a week for about a month now. Our initial meeting took place in a local library to make sure that everyone was comfortable with each other before beginning lessons. We approached her with the rather broad goal of providing him with more academic challenges and enrichment than he is receiving in school. She has been excellent at customizing lessons to his interest and skill levels, brings a variety of materials and ideas to keep him interested, and is also very good at being firm with him and keeping him on task when appropriate. She incorporates body movements into parts of the lessons, which is wonderful for an active little boy. He is excited to see her when she comes over, and so far has taken her advice and instruction more seriously than any previous educator, including his father and I. She has also provided advice to us as we advocate for him within the school system. We are eager to watch the progress he will make with Nancy as his tutor.
It is incredible to see that my child now loves writing after being Nancy’s tutee for a couple of months. Before, it used to be a semi-dreaded but required part of schoolwork. Nancy has been helping my child get over writer’s block and actually enjoy the writing process. We look forward to every tutoring session; it is truly amazing to see them work together. The brain gym exercises are a pleasant surprise!
How nice to read that the brain gym excercises are well received. Thank you for the positive review and for the honor of working with you bright and enthusiastic child.
I have decided to finish college at an later age which caused my math, reading, and English skills to become a little rusty. After speaking with Nancy she made me feel so much better about myself with just a phone call and also gave me the motivation to seek the hidden past knowledge. I recommend Nancy because she does this from the heart and that is what gives me the motivation to push harder, she also is very patient and understanding. She's The Best!!!
Dear Lacita, I am so fortunate to have such a willing and hardworking tutee like you to work with. Thank you for the kind words.
We could not be luckier to have found Nancy! Our son is struggling in school and was recently diagnosed with ADHD. We have been searching for help and then we found Nancy! From our first meeting I knew she was the answer to my prayers! She seemed to understand his struggles more then I could have even imagined. I doubt there is anything that she has not seen or done regarding ADHD / gifted. She understands everything from techniques, to the work, to the frustration, to the testing, to accommodations to the red tape in the public school system. I was amazed!
Nancy had first session with him today. Just like I had expected from our meeting, she succeeded every expectation that I had. She was amazing with him. She worked non- stop with him for almost 90 minutes and kept him focused and on track the entire time. She has already made determinations about what techniques will work for him and understands his areas of deficiency, all why boosting his confidence.
Although it was only our first session, I could not be happier or more excited about what I know Nancy will do for him. Thank you Nancy!!
Thank you for the glowing review. My work is made easy with a supportive family and a delightful child.
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.
I have many years of experience in working with children with ADD/ADHD as a classroom teacher, resource teacher, and school administrator.
I worked as a teacher and administrator in a centers for students with emotional and behavioral disorders. I was the first pre-school teacher for special needs students in our school district and have worked with children with Aspergers.
I worked as a self contained classroom teacher and as an administrator in programs with children with autism. The kids ranged from low to high functioning. I was the first pre-k exceptional ed. teacher in my school district with VE students. I never had less than one student with autism in my classroom during this time.
I worked as an exceptional ed. resource and self contained teacher and had many students with dyslexia in my class. I teach ESE teacher prep. courses at the university level.
I taught all elementary school grades and was a school based administrator for years with great success. My students did well on standardized tests.
Math is used in everyday life. Learn to figure out mathematical problems using real life examples.
Science is an exciting subject that can be learned interactively.
I have an endorsement to teach students who speak English as a Second Language in the state of Florida and have worked with ESOL students since 1975. I also teach teacher preparation courses in this subject area at the college level.
Knowing how to use grammar correctly is an important skill.
If you read well, the world is your oyster.
I have taught children with special needs from Pre-K through eighth grade in resource rooms and self-contained classes. I teach the teacher preparation courses for exceptional education at the undergraduate, graduate, and post graduate level.
