About Nancy

I am a writer and teacher with many years experience, including over 20 years writing and producing for television.

I also edit books, and write several columns for publication.

I have a degree in English from Bucknell University (with a concentration in theater and writing) a teaching certificate (for secondary English), and have taught in the classroom, and have taught acting classes.

I believe that each student should be approached as a unique individual, and I will design a plan aimed to assist each student with his or her particular personality, strengths, and weaknesses. I don't subscribe to any particular method of coaching.

What I do bring to my sessions is a real passion for the written word, and whatever I can do to help a student read, comprehend, and write more effectively and successfully is both my goal - and my pleasure!

Thank you for taking the time to read my profile, and I hope that I can assist you.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. 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.

Public Speaking

My concentrations at Bucknell University were in writing and theater. I have performed in hundreds of shows, regional and national, as well as directing both theater and films. I taught adult acting at The Metropolitan School for the Arts in Syracuse, NY for 5 years, and started a repertory theatre company there. I was also a television host, interviewer, field producer/talent and radio host for over 25 years at both PBS and TimeWarner on programs for local, regional and national air. I regularly give talks to many groups on business, motivation, and technology. And I truly enjoy helping others improve their ability to speak to and entertain the public.

Swimming

I was Red Cross certified in life saving and as a Swim Instructor for many years. While I have not renewed my certification, I am still able to teach swimming at all levels (pre-beginner to adult) and have also participated on many synchronized swim teams.
