About Nancy

I received a BA in Linguistics from the University of Colorado. I have over fifteen years experience teaching in a classroom setting, and more than two years tutoring individuals and groups. I've taught Kindergarten (phonics and reading), Middle and High School English (reading, comprehension, writing help), and Spanish I and II. I've taught Spanish to all ages, Kindergarten to adult. I especially love to make learning enjoyable and use hands on activities and role-playing whenever possible. I can also help those who are wanting or needing to learn English, for pleasure or for their employment. I would love to help you with your needs.

I can personalize my tutoring to meet your needs, whether it be providing assistance with a course the student is taking or providing original lessons for a particular need.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 previous tutoring experience working with foreign students trying to improve their English. I was involved with a group that teaches English to people from a wide variety of countries. We worked either one-on-one or in small groups of two or three.

Recently I have been working with adults from Spain, China, Germany and Mexico providing personalized instruction to meet their individual needs. I strive to find a balance between grammar and conversation. I also use many of the teaching techniques that I used in my 14 years of teaching Spanish, including hands on activities and role-playing.

Spanish

I began learning Spanish while in the 3rd grade, and continued to study the language every year through my Senior year of college.

I have fourteen years of experience teaching Spanish I and Spanish II in a classroom setting. I matched my curriculum to the Colorado State Standards of Reading, Writing, Speaking, Listening and Culture. I have helped many high school students to test out of college Spanish I in their freshman year.

Besides the 14 years of classroom teaching experience, I've also tutored students on a one to one basis many times.
