##### About Nancy

After 18 years of full-time teaching at the middle school level, I have entered into an early retirement where I work part-time in a private school teaching math at the seventh and eighth grade level. I enjoy helping students of all ability levels gain confidence in their ability to comprehend math concepts. As a middle school generalist who taught content reading and history in addition to middle school math and algebra, I draw on a broad background to provide the necessary support to help students to develop a working mathematical vocabulary and concrete visualization of abstract mathematical expressions. Tutoring individual students at this point in my career brings me great joy.

Currently, I provide individual tutoring to middle and high school students through the algebra 2 level in addition to adults returning to the college level in need of algebra review. My students can access a wide range of resources that I accumulated during my full-time teaching years. Many students need to work with manipulatives and visual representations of concepts to fully grasp the big ideas in mathematics. If a student needs help using a graphing calculator, I can provide clear step-by-step instructions. In addition to my past experience, I stay current in my profession by reading current teaching articles, discussing teaching subjects with colleagues and maintaining my membership to the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.

## Social Studies

As a Massachusetts certified teacher, I was required to complete the equivalence of a liberal arts degree in addition to my business degree. I accomplished this by combining my history minor with additional course work in the social sciences completed in a post baccalaureate program at Westfield State University. Additional social studies graduate coursework was completed at Clark University. I taught 7th grade world history.
