About Nancy

From 2004 to 2015 I had the wonderful opportunity to volunteer teaching English to adults with little or no English language skills at a local nonprofit. I also subbed in the Fairfax County school system during this time working with elementary school children. Both of these opportunities led me to my current job as a continuing education teacher for Fairfax County teaching English to adults. It has been a wonderful experience where I am able to use my creativity to engage and encourage learning.

I have a commitment to wanting to help people understand their new home through learning English. Having lived abroad in France and Italy, I understand the frustration and fear when you don’t understand what’s being said or how things work. I want to continue reaching adult learners through tutoring in order to help people understand how they fit into the new place they call home. I am anxious to motivate students and have them experience the sense of pride that comes with learning.

I am an experienced English instructor to adults at beginner through intermediate levels and emphasize all skills including reading, writing, speaking and listening. I use creative ways to engage and encourage learning and can incorporate technology to expand on lessons.

I majored in French and minored in Spanish in college and have lived abroad as well so I understand what it is like to not understand a language. I have volunteered teaching English and most recently am teaching classes of adults learning English.
