About Nina

I have always considered literacy skills to be important for children. As the saying goes, "First you learn to read, then you read to learn!" It's important to build reading skills because they are the basis for learning in all other subjects. Because of my passion for reading, I currently serve as a full time literacy tutor at an elementary school in Mt. Pleasant, MI. I have training in K-3 literacy interventions.

In my current tutoring position, I track students' progress using weekly progress monitoring tests. I love watching each student's progress from week to week! I have an AAS in Early Childhood Education, but I love working with students of all ages. I have experience working with children from age 6 months to 16 years as a daycare assistant, coach, and camp counselor.

I have had special training in elementary literacy interventions, but I am also highly qualified to tutor reading, writing, and public speaking. I have experience coaching 8th grade debate and elementary Odyssey of the Mind teams-- activities which require good reading, writing, communication, and critical thinking skills.

Please let me know if you have any questions!

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.

Clarinet

I played the clarinet in bands and orchestras for more than 10 years. I was first chair in my high school's Honors Wind Ensemble, as well as the community youth orchestra. I continue to play occasionally for fun.

Public Speaking

I competed in 4 years of high school varsity debate, was co-captain of the team, and won several individual speaking awards. After my high school graduation, I helped coach the 8th grade debate team. I have also helped elementary school students write and perform their own skits as a coach for Odyssey of the Mind.
