I am a certified math teacher and have fifteen years of tutoring experience, both privately and for the Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake School District. I work with students from middle school to college level, and work to create a comfortable working relationship which allows for productive learning.

The new Common Core Learning Standards and high stakes testing require that students have a very good understanding of mathematics. As well as focusing on the mechanics of math, I help students to understand concepts. This is essential in order for them to know when to use which technique. There are a number of repeated 'themes' in math which recur as students progress through math courses, and I bring this to their attention. When similarities are pointed out, this helps to reduce anxiety, allowing the student to focus on learning. In addition, I work with students on reading comprehension of word problems, since this is frequently an area of difficulty, particularly with the Common Core content and testing. I teach reading and problem solving strategies to help students to break down word problems effectively and be sure to answer the question that was asked. One of my primary goals is to help students feel more confident and capable in both math and testing situations.

i am available most weekdays and weekends during summer 2017.

Great Experience

Nancy is fantastic. My son had sessions both in person and online and both were extremely helpful. Nancy is kind and patient and very knowledgeable. She can cover a lot of material in one session and being able to do it from our own home was great.

Great Tutor who is Patient, Prepared and Approachable!

Nancy tutored my son in Algebra/Trig. Math has never been my son's strong subject but after working with Nancy, he increasingly became more confident in his abilities to solve difficult mathematical equations. His confidence was evidenced by his improved quarterly grades (from barely passing to high 80's, low 90's) and successfully passing the Regents. Nancy was always prepared at their weekly sessions and available by phone, e-mail or texts at other times whenever he had questions. She is extremely patient and would always research an answer she did know. I would highly recommend Nancy should your child need assistance in Algebra/Trig. Thank you, Nancy!
