I began volunteering as a reading tutor with my son's first grade class. My son struggled with reading so I wanted to learn how to help. I was trained to teach a guided reading class and fell in love with it. For the past 12 years, I have worked beside and been mentored by the literacy specialist as well as other teachers. Because I see the difference I make I am still volunteering in the classroom with first grade readers. I love helping children learn to read and want to expand my services to others. Seeing the light in a child's eyes as they are able to read something they never thought they would brings joy to my heart.
Over the years, I have worked with all levels of readers as well as other grade levels. I have experience with different personalities, learning styles and strategies, and am able to adapt to individual needs. I use a very positive and fun approach when tutoring and would describe myself as patient and encouraging. Being in the school for so many years has allowed me to develop a large pool of resources to help assist me with my tutoring. I believe in the power of literacy.

Nadine is great at tailoring the lesson so my child is happy to be learning. We look forward to every session
She has a wonderful personality with children and adults. Easy to work with scheduling and rescheduling. She adapts to all learning levels and makes it fun for my child! I Highly recommend her for all children and all learning types!
My now 7 year old daughter did not like to read at all last year. She was struggling in First grade. Now she is a confident reader that really is asking to meet with Nadine. She really enjoys lessons with her and is continuing to make huge progress.
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.
