About Nancy

After 25 years of teaching, I now spend most of my free time volunteering at a horse rescue. However, I miss the classroom terribly and the comradery with the students.

Over the years, I taught all levels of Science from AP Physics to our core level Introductory Physical Science. My specialty course, which I taught most often, was Physics 432, a non-Calculus college preparitory course. But it didn't matter rather I was teaching quadratic equations or the fact that a meter stick had numbers on both sides, every student had an educational level that could be bettered.

The joy of teaching is watching a student's eyes light up when he/she finally understands a concept. I have always felt the duty of the teacher was to provide a path for her students that lead to success. The way to accomplish in my classroom, was by following a method, regardless of the level of the course. If you have a method to lead you, and you adhere to it, you're already two steps ahead of your fellow student. This was the way I approached all my classes. I took great pride in my student's success; their success was a reflection of how well I was able to lead them.

I have taught students of all ability levels, from AP Physics students to core level Introductory Physical Science. With the exception of calculus based Physics, I can teach it all. I've done extensive work too at the United States Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, AL, and Cape Canaveral, Fl in the area of Space Travel and Aviation.

I have no doubt that I can help just about any student who needs a tutor in Physics. Since I'm no longer in the classroom, my hours are extremely flexible.

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.

She worked with my daughter on several different problem-solving techniques and she provided some additional resources. My daughter found it very helpful.
