About Nona

I am a life-long learner and teacher who enjoys helping others discover just how capable they really are. My favorite part of tutoring anyone is the moment the student finds out that they have the skills and confidence to proceed to the next step in life. Some subjects are things you want to master others are things you just need to get through for a time. Having 17 years in education I understand both scenarios. Once we have established goals together I will partner with the student until he or she no longer needs my services. I am very adaptable to the learning style of each student. I know that everyone learns differently and that it is my job to teach so that each student gets the full benefit of the knowledge shared and time spent. Of particular interest to me are second language learners. Having studied abroad, cultural differences and struggles in the educational system are challenges I am ready to help anyone overcome. I look forward to hearing from you soon. I am a life-long learner and teacher who enjoys helping others discover just how capable they really are.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I was a preschool teacher for over eleven years and a director of over five years. I could be of service to those families who children are in the primary grades struggling with the building blocks of learning.

French

I have a degree in French and studied a year abroad in Strasbourg, France. I love everything and anything associated with languages and cultures throughout our world. France and it's people gave me a deep love and passion for education and in particular how we learn languages. Learning another language is not an indicator that we are more intelligent than anyone but simply a way we express what we know. Shouldn't we all have at least two ways to show how intelligent we really are? I look forward to reinforcing what someone might know or offering knowledge someone might want to enrich the communication and expression of intelligence. You are already bright! Let's find more than one way to show express that together.

Phonics

I was an Early Childhood Educator for 15 years. Phonics are part of the foundation for educating young children. I also studied in France as a Language major Phonics as they applied to French and also to teaching English as a Foreign Language were a daily part of life at that time.
