About Nancy


Bio

I have been a hospital-based Registered Nurse for the first 25 years of my career with particular interest in Neonatal Intensive Care and Pediatrics. I worked at Duke, Wake Med, and lastly at New Hanover Regional where I became Vice President and Chief Nursing Officer. After 8 years in that role, I took an early retirement option and joined the faculty in the UNC-W School of Nursing. I took the first groups of nursing students from NC for a semester of their required training to London,...

I have been a hospital-based Registered Nurse for the first 25 years of my career with particular interest in Neonatal Intensive Care and Pediatrics. I worked at Duke, Wake Med, and lastly at New Hanover Regional where I became Vice President and Chief Nursing Officer. After 8 years in that role, I took an early retirement option and joined the faculty in the UNC-W School of Nursing. I took the first groups of nursing students from NC for a semester of their required training to London, England. Following these experiences, I returned to take a position as the Executive Director of the Child Development Center which is a developmental preschool working primarily with young children with special needs and varying developmental concerns. This would include mental, social, behavioral, and physical issues along with learning difficulties. All types of teaching/learning strategies were employed, and children made remarkable progress. I retired (for real) after 18 years.

I am well versed in basic math concepts, and I have a bit of a talent to explain things in very different ways that may make topics more understandable. Success at math is very dependent on reading skill as a fundamental ingredient. Other fundamentals include the ability to focus and engage, to manage frustration without giving up, and finding what pleasure there may be in successfully completing assignments. So much learning happens vicariously when seemingly unrelated activities can contain basic math principles. It then becomes learning math without actually realizing it.

I prefer to schedule tutoring in one hour blocks, or the maximum amount of time that kids can be engaged.
