About Nancy

I have been teaching English at the college level for many years. Additionally, I work as a writer and an editor. I enjoy working with students of all ages, and think my verbal communication skills, sense of humor and my ability to establish a positive rapport with students help them progress more quickly, and assists in promoting confidence and a love of learning.

My education includes both a Bachelor's Degree and a Master's in English. Further, I can offer excellent references from deans, editing clients, and many students. From teaching basic sentence structure to analyzing the works of Shakespeare, it's rewarding to observe students gain new skills; I am convinced the acquisition of literacy skills is necessary for success in school and in the professional workplace. Additionally, I am a published writer and poet.

A lover of learning, I continue to study and teach, while attending and leading workshops dedicated to reading, writing, and literary analysis. I look forward to working with you and/or your child.

Aside from my experience teaching all aspects English, I also teach and coach public speaking, assisting with preparation for presentations, delivering effective speeches, and preparing for job interviews.

I am as flexible as possible in scheduling sessions, and my focus is to always help you achieve your goals. My teaching style is relaxed, not rigid; I find this approach to be especially effective not only in helping others learn needed skills, but in making learning an enjoyable and enriching experience.
