About Nancy

There is a special place in my heart for middle school students! I am an 8th grade math and language arts/reading teacher in Monroe NC. I have taught middle school math and language arts in NC and SC for 11 years. I currently tutor students in both math and reading at a local middle school.

I started tutoring as a sophomore in college. My statistics professor suggested I work in the tutorial program. I began tutoring my peers in many subjects including statistics, algebra, world history, English, etc. At times I would borrow a classroom and reteach an entire lesson to 10 or 12 classmates. This was what led to my decision to become a teacher. I am a mom to four children ranging in age from 15 to 24. I am learning coach to my 17 year old daughter who is a senior in online school. As a mom to two sons with IEPs, I understand the struggles special needs students go through on a daily basis. Over the last 28 years I have tutored students from elementary school age up to adult in various subjects.

I currently live in Waxhaw, NC with my husband, my two youngest children, four dogs, five cats and seven horses!

My goal in tutoring is to help students see success to build self confidence. In turn, students will be encouraged to become independent learners. I do not strive for students to be dependent on me as a learning coach. Rather, I believe tutoring can be the catalyst for young people to learn to "spread their wings and fly". Thank you for taking the time to learn about me. I hope to have the opportunity to work with your young person.

Approved subjects

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