My name is Nancy and I am originally from New Jersey. Currently, I live in the Overland Park area. I have a bachelor's in Spanish and a master's in Education. I worked thirteen years as a substitute teacher in New Jersey and one year for the Shawnee Mission and Blue Valley school districts in Kansas. I have been working for the Olathe and Spring Hill Public School systems for the past 3 years.
I have been a tutor for WyzAnt since 2007. I was a tutor in New Jersey for Club Z in-home tutoring, and I specialized in helping children learn Spanish from beginning to advanced levels. I also have a background in working with elementary age students and would be happy to work with them as well. I have also taught children with special needs and ESL individuals also.
While working for WyzAnt, I have taught elementary school students, and I have also tutored adults in Spanish. I also have worked with special needs individuals and with bilingual and English as a Second Language students. If you are looking for someone who is experienced in working with both children and adults and can break down the information that you need to learn into simple basic steps, I may be the right tutor for you.
Outstanding Certified Elementary and Spanish teacher is now able to tutor in biology. I have always loved biology and science and now I am looking forward to tutoring in a subject that I love. I hope to use my 11 years of tutoring skills and 14 years of substitute teaching skills to help those that need it.
I first started playing chess about five years ago when a five year old boy taught me who was taught by his dad. I have been playing chess almost everyday since then with the elementary school children with which I work . I know how many spaces each piece can move and in what direction and the number of points each piece is worth. For example, a knight and a bishop are worth 3 points. A knight moves in a capital L shape. A bishop can only move diagonally on either white or black spots; depending on whether it is a white bishop or a black one, it sticks to one color only. Chess is probably my most favorite game in the world to play and I get to play it every day.
I have been cooking a wide variety of dishes since I was a child. I originally helped my parents make everything by scratch and as a adult,I know how to cook a wide variety of dishes. I started out learning how to cook everything from beef stroganoff to a wide variety of Italian dishes. I am also an expert at making deserts. Recently, I have been trying to eat healthier and so I have been learning how to make dishes like a meatless bean chili with vegetables and lots of herbs and spices. If you are interested in learning how to cook, please contact me.
I am interested in tutoring in grades K-6,because I teach these children every day. Every day I am helping a child with reading, math , spelling or science at my other job. I take whatever problem it is and break it down and make it easy for them. For example, I helped a kindergardener learn about money. I demonstrated the value of the money through the use of crayons in which each crayon represented a penny. There have been many times where I have helped students untderstand their spelling, science, and reading homework. I truly love to work with this age group which is why I have a Master's degree in Elementary Education.
I have taught in ESL classes before and I even was a permanent substitute teacher in a bilingual education class. Because of my ability to speak Spanish and my English grammar skills, I believe that I would be able to help these students no matter what level of mastery they have obtained.
Grammar skills are important to have because they increase your chances on finding a better job. People with better grammar skills usually have better writing skills. These skills are very important for children to learn at a young age and are carried with them through their adult lives.
