Knowledgeable/conscientious/proactive

Most importantly, relates well with students, which along with first-hand knowledge (as a former county school teacher, she knows the ropes) she's able to guide/motivate even teenagers!

My son's favorite

Nancy's a great teacher and she's been very kind, patient, and experienced to teach my nine-year-old son, who is an ESOL learner. My son is motivated to go to her class every week and has been enjoyed the learning and games with Nancy!

Changhong, 13 lessons with Nancy

Great Hebrew tutor

Nancy is helping my 11-year-old daughter catch up on her Hebrew reading after starting Hebrew school late. That will naturally lead to Bat Mitzvah training as well. Nancy is great. She takes the time to really understand the student as a person and where their needs are and I'm confident she will help my daughter reach her goals.

Jason, 16 lessons with Nancy

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Nancy is very organized and helps her mentees work towards the goals that they have laid out. She keeps on task and does a great job molding to the specific student! She gives great feedback and is very dedicated to helping!

Jen, 18 lessons with Nancy

Very caring tutor

Nancy is a very caring, patient and lovely teacher. We had two classes with her. She and my son could work great together. Can't wait to see the results of her help showing in his grades.
