I am Pre-kindergarten to Sixth grade certified elementary school teacher through the Board of Education City of NY. I reside in the Bronx, NY area. I have a love for vocal music and dramatic arts. I love to travel and spend my vacation time by the ocean. I love to swim and shop. I also love to read and write. I am presently working on a children's story book, and hope to have it finished and published within the year.
I have been an educator in the Bronx for over 31 years. I enjoy teaching immensely! On-line learning has been one of my key forms of educating students. I am presently a mentor teacher, educating and training new and veteran teachers alike in the area of being effective teachers.

I am also a reading specialist, targeting at risk, special needs students through an effective reading fluency and comprehension program called Readers' Theater. I have used my gifts and talents in the area of Musical Theater to reach students who struggle academically in all subject areas. In my years of experience, I have used the art of musical theater as an effective tool to reach and teach all students. I have used the Reader's Theater program for students in grades K-5. The end results have been quite successful! Students not only improved their reading, writing, vocabulary, phonics, comprehension and fluency skills, but improved in their self-esteem as aspiring students, who achieve to be life-long learners.

I am also the school's librarian, and have had the amazing opportunity to provide teachers, students and parents with an array of pertinent resources, media and reading material, in all genres to meet their academic and literacy needs.

I have also had the wonderful opportunity of reaching and teaching English to second language learners. As a second language educator, I have taught native Spanish Speaking adults and young students alike to gain literacy and proficiency in listening, speaking, reading and writing in English. I am also an Academic Intervention Service Provider for students in grades 3-5. I target below average students and provide them with test-taking strategies and reading skills to both meet the academic standards and pass the NY State examinations in reading and math. These students have not only passed their state exams, but have developed such a desire to perform better in their academic yearly progress.

I also direct a Musical Theater after-school program (three days out of the week) for students in grades 2-5. These students have taken on the art of reading and writing their own scripts, while receiving theater art history and performance skills. Over the past three years these students have performed such plays as Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Annie and the Wizard of Oz. This year these amazing and talented students will perform Beauty and the Beast.

Two years ago, I obtained my doctorate in Educational Leadership (Ed.D) from the University of Phoenix Online. This honorable accolade has afforded me the opportunity to empower other educators to help struggling students in all content areas. I am a firm believer that all students can learn when given the proper tools to achieve. My educational philosophy is rooted in providing students with an equitable, quality education, while empowering them to take ownership of their own education. When students are empowered to reach their fullest potential, they will meet all expected, mandated city and state academic standards; no matter what their academic struggles may be at the time. I also believe that empowering teachers and parents to be major stakeholders in the learning community is extremely important; in helping students meet their expected learning goals.

Teaching is my craft! Being a scholar, practitioner and leader is my on-going personal goal. Tutoring students who need just an extra push in meeting their own personal and academic goals is what I strive to achieve. Mentoring them and encouraging them to be life-long learners and leaders will forever be my mantra. I love teaching! But what I love most is the look on my student's face when they have reached an "Ahh-Ha" moment! Nothing in the world can satisfy me more than witnessing a student's learning success! This is my greatest satisfaction and overall gift as a contributor to servicing those who are greatest in my community...CHILDREN!

I want to personally thank you in advance for reading my brief bio and look forward to learning more about you and/or your child in the near future. Best of luck in your academic search for the best tutor. I hope to be given the opportunity to work along side of you and your child to help enhance his or her educational needs.

The Best Tutor...Hands Down!

Dr. Nancy has been a blessing to our son Andrew. We have seen such an improvement not only in his reading and math but his overall confidence. And to think it’s only been a few sessions! I highly recommend Dr. Nancy to anyone looking for an extremely knowledgeable, nurturing, organized, patient and fun tutor.

Linda, 13 lessons with Dr. Nancy M.

AMAZING!!!

Dr. Nancy has been an OUTSTANDING tutor. For the last eight months she has worked with our son Max and I can not praise her enough for the amount of work and patient she has dedicated to helping our son meet his academic achievements. I'm so thrilled that she was able to work with us and fill in during our deployed time and be of assistance to my son during his school year, by providing him the direction he needed and filling in the time I wish I could be their personally to dedicate. My son has improved his reading, math, and writing skills tremendously and reading each and every one of her session feedback was extremely helpful for me, as I was able to hear of his accomplishment and breakthroughs, bringing a smile to my face. My son enjoyed the time spent with her and will be sad to see her go for the summer, but he looks forward to seeing her again in the fall for his upcoming school year. I truly want to say that words can't not describe how thankful we are for all her work and effort. We wish her a wonderful summer and look forward to another wonderful year next fall.

Very Patient and Understanding

We have had four lessons thus far and with each, my daughter is progressing. She now has a better understanding of place value and decomposing numbers. Dr. Nancy had made learning these areas that she struggle with, a lot easier.

An amazing tutor!!!

Dr. Nancy, as my son calls her, brings warmth and a special kind of charm that captivated him from the moment she first walked in my door! After tutoring my son in one month he can write an entire detailed 3 body essay! I may add that she has brought out the best in him and I am in awe to know that my son could actually write some "juicy" pieces, as they call it! She has even assisted with putting together a color-coded kid friendly editing system that has made it easier and fun for him when editing. She has exceeded my expectations and provides fun interactive quality reading material (free, I may add!). He is extremely confident in writing and reading thanks to her. Her style makes it easy for him to make a mistake and not feel discouraged! She is the best!!! She is supremely recommend!!

I thank you so very much for the opportunity to partner with you to help your son meet his educational goals. He is an amazing young learner, who has, up to this point, taken ownership of his learning. He has been given the tools and is effectively applying them. YAHOO! The outcomes have been so productive and quite successful! I am so committed to working with him to sharpen his craft as a scholar. I am more than confident that he will reach and meet all of his learning objectives...why? Because of the support you and your husband have afforded him. You have done an incredible joy of reinforcing and motivating him to reach his full potential. Kudos to you both. It is my sincere pleasure to be a part of your son's learning team! I look forward to our on-going learning and partnership. With deepest appreciation, Dr. Nancy M. C.

Great Grammar Tutor

I am very pleased with Dr Nancy's work. She helped my son, who was having a difficult time with reading. He had to take summer school but thanks to Dr. Nancy's help, in a few sessions with her, my son was able to start reading at his grade level. Dr. Nancy had the abilities, skills, and patience needed for my son. I highly recommend Dr. Nancy. Thank you, Dr.

Great and effective tutor.

Dr. Nancy C. is pleasant, caring, and a passionate tutor. She is knowledgeable, always prepared and ready to tutor. She assesses the child, finds his learning style and works with that. My son is easily distracted and Dr. Nancy manages to capture his attention every time. She is easy to be contacted and very flexible. My son's schoolwork and homework has definitely improved. My son enjoys working with her and always asks when she will return. I would recommend her to anyone.
