About Nancy Sardiñas

Dear Students and Parents,

I specialize in helping students by using an active learning style called Brain Compatible Instruction. My experience over more than 35 years includes teaching students from pre-school age up to the doctoral level in both regular and exceptional education, working with kids that use English as a Second Language, teaching teachers how to teach, and evaluating home schooled children. I have received lots of recognition for my work in education, but one of my favorites was when I received the Florida Exceptional Education Teacher of the Year Award.

Hope to work with you soon.
Dr. Nancy L.

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.
