About Nina

I am a certified elementary teacher with 3 years of elementary tutoring experience. I adapt my tutoring methods to play to the strengths and weaknesses of my students. For example, my last student was a kinesthetic learner. I used a lot of manipulatives (i.e. blocks, puzzles, modeling clay, etc.) and completed engaging projects of the students' choosing. For example, instead of doing a standard book report, I allowed the student to create a mystery box (shoe box) with items inside that helped tell about the setting, plot, characters, and problem of the selected book. The student saw this as a fun activity instead of schoolwork.

I also have 5 years of experience with homework help. During my time as a nanny and now as a teacher, one of the most common things I experience and hear from parents is that they need help with homework. Usually this is an issue with time. It's hard to get kids home from school or an after school activity, make dinner, take baths, and get to bed. Where is there time in the day for homework?!? I can help!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified elementary teacher in both Florida and Illinois through Jun 2019. I have 1 year of tutoring experience for a 2nd grade student in math. I have my Masters Degree in Elementary Education.

Reading

I am a Certified K-6 Teacher in Broward County. I taught 2nd grade for 1 year in Chicago and Kindergarten for 2 years in Hollywood, Florida. In addition, I have obtained my Reading Endorsement through Broward County Public Schools.

I have worked with students of all levels during my 3 years of teaching ranging from struggling students requiring daily interventions and intensive instruction to gifted students. I love watching students progress and meet their learning goals.
