I am a certified math teacher available to tutor middle school and high school math through Precalculus. I have a Highly Qualified designation on my teaching license, with extensive experience in math instruction from middle school through college level courses. I can help students who struggle with basics to those looking for enrichment to expand on traditional topics. I am able to effectively relate to students, parents, and school staff members. I can provide assistance not only in the math content, but also in work habits and study skills. Students will leave each session with notes and examples to refer back to at a later time. My goal is to not only help the student with the currently needed skills and concepts, but to prepare him/her for future mathematics course work, confident in his/her ability to succeed.
My formal education includes my BS Ed degree from Edinboro State in Pennsylvania, graduate work from University of Maryland, and numerous additional courses and inservice credits. Additional experience includes decades of working with teenagers and young adults. I am a certified math teacher available to tutor middle school and high school math through Precalculus.

Our son is struggling with his honors precalculus class. Nancy has a pleasant and patient demeanor w him and he isn't complaining about going. He says it is really worth his while and "she really know her stuff". We will continue with Nancy to get our son up to speed and to build a strong foundation for college courses.
Nancy is also willing to go above and beyond when required. Our son had a test this week and our regularly scheduled appointment would have come after the test. Nancy volunteered to see him over the weekend for test preparation. She is really invested in these kids. Thank goodness! We really appreciate her.
Always there for extra help and support.. Explains things in detailed steps that are easy to understand.. Understands everyone's individual learning styles and needs..
Both of my kids have worked with Nancy and agree that she is very friendly, patient and helpful. My son saw a dramatic upward shift in both his grades and confidence. My daughter is working with Nancy now for ACT math prep and we anticipate similar results. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who has a child either struggling with math or just wants to gain that extra edge.
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.
