About Nancy

Having worked as a Director of Education for a national tutoring company, I am a highly desirable teacher with a proven track record of achievement in helping students reach their highest potential. I am always available to families who really want to give their children the best opportunities to excel in school. I am an expert in all subject areas specific to elementary school and have extensive experience teaching gifted students. I love working with early readers in developing strong phonics skills.
I have been selected as a Math Coach to underachieving 5th graders to prepare them to meet state standards on the FCAT. This was another successful endeavor in my career and a significant factor in you making the right choice for your child.
My tennis instructor experience includes
Nike Tennis Camps- Summer 2011.

If you want results quickly and long-term, look no further. I look forward to meeting you and your child.

SUMMER 2016
Reading groups can be facilitated in your own home. Host a small group of 4 or more students for dynamic, interactive reading instruction with a minimal fee.
This is a great way for students to be with their friends, enjoy learning while strengthening reading skills at the same time.
Think of it as a book club for kids!

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.

Special Needs

As a teacher of the gifted for many years, many students have special needs as well as high intelligence. Gifted students' needs fall under the Exceptional Student Education Department in the State of Florida. Thus, I have had many years of experience in this area. I have written goals for the legal documents required for students with special needs so I am well versed in teaching and implementing goals for students with special needs.

Study Skills

I am a professional when it comes to study skills!

My students are coached in how to be organized with regard to their notebooks, time in class, managing assignments and long term projects, and keeping a daily planner.

Study skills are dependent on maintaining a calendar and a consistent schedule.

This is an area where I can make a significant impact with students who are willing to get organized.
