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.

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.

Excellent and organized and thorough

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!

Very experienced and committed

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.
