Elementary (K-6th)

As well as being a psychotherapist for over 20 years, the Director of a Child Psychiatric Unit, and a college professor, I have substitute taught in K-6 for over 10 years. I am very well versed in the K-6 curriculum, including, but not limited to math, earth and regular science, history and social studies, language arts, especially reading, study skills, and reading comprehension. I can teach children to read and write as well as learn how to learn and study. My approach to tutoring K-6 children is to assess their needs, design a program for them to learn and continue to assess their progress. I make learning fun and challenging, providing verbal rewards throughout our work time.
Handwriting,

Handwriting

Millions of students all over the world use the "Handwriting Without Tears" program! And so do I! This easy-to-learn curriculum makes handwriting mastery easy for students. I have extensive training and 4 certificates to teach this method! Research supports the active teaching of handwriting. Recent findings demonstrate that writing by hand improves creative writing skills and fine motor skills. In fact, elementary students have been found to write more and faster by hand than when keyboarding. And with the adoption of the Common Core State Standards, the emphasis and expectations placed on classroom note-taking and expository writing in grades K–5 is greater than ever.
Phonics,

Phonics

I hold a BA, a Masters, and will soon have my PhD. In my training, I learned how to teach phonics. There are 44 sounds in the American English language. I teach those phonics using a variety of methods the incorporate reading, hearing and writing. I use games, worksheets and reading/writing to master these skills.

Knowledgeable and quick to help

Angeles, 2 lessons with Nancy

Excellent and knowledgeable tutor

Nancy is a very responsible and helpful tutor. She was always on time for my lessons and answered every question I had. She was so helpful with preparing me for the SATs and she knew the information she was teaching me. Definitely recommend!!

Ivy, 4 lessons with Nancy

Excellent sat prep tutor

Nancy B. helped my daughter to get ready for several aspects of the SAT. First, she helped her get ready for the content of the Reading portion of the test. She also gave her important pointers about test mechanics. Because she developed a personal connection with my daughter, she has been able to give her tips about how to physically prepare for the focus that she will need during the test. They discussed sleep and diet approaches that will maximize her readiness on the "day of." Overall, she has helped my daughter to increase her confidence - which may be the best part of all. Nancy B. is reliable and flexible. The fact that they met on-line was not an impediment to the effectiveness of the sessions. I highly recommend Nancy B!
