About Nancy

I began working as a peer tutor during college. I tutored many subjects at the college level but specialized in English composition. My instructors also asked me to tutor fellow students in the areas of reading comprehension, vocabulary, spelling, writing, business communications, and even accounting. These subjects were easy for me, so it was easy for me to explain these subjects to others.

After graduating from the University of Kansas with a degree in English/Writing Option, I spent many years teaching. My teaching experience includes grades 1-12; I also taught at a local community college. At Miles Community College in Montana, I tutored students individually, in small groups, and even classrooms. I tutored students studying for their GEDs. I taught adult education in the areas of reading, composition, vocabulary, spelling. I also started a Writing Lab and an ESL class while working there, as well as a college newspaper, for which I acted as sponsor.

I loved every minute of teaching. I am an enthusiastic lifelong learner. I hope you will consider me. I'd love to help.
