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.

Nancy tutored my son today - we are evaluating tutors - she seems kind and patient with my 11 year old boy!
First lesson with my 15 year old - getting him organized and back on track. Recommended office supplies, spent considerable time before our first meeting talking with me about my son and his needs, and got right to work when she arrived. HIGHLY recommend! He actually requested that she come AGAIN this week!
I am impressed with the work Nancy is doing with my son so far. Nancy is obviously very experienced and committed. Nancy's personality and background with working with kids that need the extra help is also a big plus for my 8 yr old son.
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.

Certified by Wyzant
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.
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.
