About Nancy

My commitment to teaching and helping students succeed comes from 25+ years of teaching English as a Second Language to adults and 10+ years of private tutoring with adults and children. I have found this area of teaching very rewarding and enjoy learning from the students about their culture as much as I enjoy teaching them. It is so satisfying to see a student achieve their goal in the English language - whether it is passing TOEFL, obtaining citizenship, getting a job or just being able to talk to and understand their child's teacher - to be part of that success is very special.

The most important thing to me when teaching is that the student is comfortable and feels at ease during the lesson. I do my best to tailor the lessons to the student's specific needs, while keeping them challenged and making them smile at the same time. Lessons are presented in the target language using a variety of resources from hard copy to web based. I do have a working knowledge of German and Spanish and will make limited use of that ability if needed to get past a sticky spot.

I am currently teaching regular adult classes in the morning and evening, so I am only available in the afternoon (1-5PM). My regular classes are in the Ellisville, MO area so I would really consider that my home base to work from (20 mile radius from there).
During the summer months my regular class hours decrease so I will have more time available.

I do have a 12 hour cancellation policy, but try to be flexible and will work with the student to make up a missed lesson.

I am excited about being a Wyzant tutor and look forward to meeting many wonderful students!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

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.
