About Nancy

I have been a Tutor and also teaching 6th grade CCD for 7 years, and enjoy Grade School ages!
I have been a teachers aid for 1st, 2nd and 3rd grades for several years at St. Lucy's School in the last decade as well.

I am teaching on Sunday's for 2 hours the 4th grade this year. I have also taken the time to be CCD and Tutor certified by the State of California. I have tutored students from all ages day care to High School. But mostly taught 1st to 8th grade.
I did tutoring after school for 3 hours for 3 years. Mostly in Math, English and Spelling. I have a certificate in Religion and as a Teacher, I have
been given background check and fingerprint for proof of protected approved teaching.

I also have a on-going certificate in Child Protection and basic medical emergencies. I am a Certified Licensed Insurance Agent as well.

I have been a media publisher and writer for 16 years. I know how teach structure of basic English. Also how to write for publication.

I enjoy teaching and getting to know my students. I take interest in them and they feel my attentive ways with them.

That is how I can make it simple in ways that help them learn. I show them how to make it easy and fun.
This way, they can do it on their own with some helpful tips we practice and from there know ways to be independent too.

I also enjoy helping them discover ways to find their interests and keeping their interest in total on learning in life as well.
I am look for a willing student.

I have strong people skills and experience from my 10 plus years in helping children find ways to get stronger in reading. By working with all ages and grades, I know how to make it make sense and give them a understanding of what they read. The same is true on writing projects. I help them find their interests easily and teach them to ask the questions overcome their shy ways and learn to
understand how to write a essay. By teaching them to Ask the 5 W questions.

I work to find ways to help them connect to the homework so it isn't so difficult for them.
Get them to understand the lesson they are on and what they are to know better, whether it is
English, Spelling, Math or Science in any grade. Then give them some practice sheets to show their ability and build their confidence.

My age and years of experience have taught me how to teach with laughter and beings ok with learning something each time you try that confidence is key to knowledge. When you have the knowledge you have the task accomplished and the confidence to do anything. I like to take a few minutes to talk first and find out what someone expects to do and learn and find ways to make us both a success.
