About Nancy


Bio

My desire to become a math tutor is to help students and adults improve and achieve higher levels of math skills and problem solving. I work with my students so they may reach their highest potential and gain self-esteem.

I graduated from Indiana University of Pennsylvania with 2 degrees. In 1975 I earned a Bachelor of Science in Education; my major was secondary math education and in 1983, I earned a Master's Degree in Education in Educational Psychology. I made the Dean's list in the...

My desire to become a math tutor is to help students and adults improve and achieve higher levels of math skills and problem solving. I work with my students so they may reach their highest potential and gain self-esteem.

I graduated from Indiana University of Pennsylvania with 2 degrees. In 1975 I earned a Bachelor of Science in Education; my major was secondary math education and in 1983, I earned a Master's Degree in Education in Educational Psychology. I made the Dean's list in the Fall of 1974 and have been nominated by 2 different students I have taught to Who's Who Among America's Teachers in 1990 and 1998.

I presently am in my 5th year of tutoring a young lady starting with General Math, Pre- Algebra, Algebra I, Algebra II and now Geometry. My recent previous tutoring positions were 2008-2010, an elementary student, working on 4th and 5th grade math. In the 1990's I worked with a few adults who needed to improve their math skills for school and employment and in the 1980's school students.

I have 23 years of math teaching experience: 22 years in Marion Center Area School District 1979-2001, where I taught Algebra I 8th and 9-12th, Pre-Algebra 8th, General Math 7th and 8th, Academic Math 7th, and Remedial Math 7th, 8th, and 10-12th. I created, wrote, implemented and taught the course of study for Pre-Algebra and an individualized Remedial Math 10 required by 10-12th graders who did not achieve an 8.6 grade level on their 9th grade standardized math test, a requirement for graduation.

I was on the Book Selection Committee for General Math and Algebra every time the district updated and bought new books. When the district considered changing to a middle school concept, 5-8th grade, I was on the original start-up committee to help in making new and positive changes and set up programs for the new school and students. I also worked on the Math Curriculum Committee, K-12th grade, to make a smooth transition in math from grade to grade.

My 23rd year of teaching, 2001-2002, was in Monongalia County School District where I created, wrote, implemented and taught a new program for the district. This new class 9-12th grade was, Remediation Skills for Math, Language and Reading. I worked with low-scoring students to improve and achieve higher standardized test scores needed for graduation requirements.

After college graduation, 1975, I was a math substitute teacher in the Pittsburgh, PA, area for North Hills and North Allegheny School Districts, 7-12th grade.
