Nancy L. is a rare gem in the world of teaching. Not only does she have a wealth of information, she has a way of presenting it to suit the needs of the individual student's learning style. She is exceptional in regents, prep and test taking skills. She is accommodating and fair. My daughter loved her! She goes above and beyond her role as a tutor. A real find.

"Multiple subjects for K-College students: ELA, History,Sci.Spec.needs"
As the parent of a son whose neurological testing confirmed the diagnosis, I made a commitment to study everything available to help him navigate the public school/special education system so that he could be successful in his educational endeavors. My son's experience and that of the many students I have tutored over the years confirms that the schools need to do more for these students than they have. ADD can significantly differ from ADHD to an extent that the two conditions should not be considered synomomous. Additionally, the hyperactive component is often outgrown as the child matures. ...

"Math aptitude for all ages. "
I have always enjoyed math and solving problems. Many students get lost in the language of math. They often see formulas but not what is needed to make them work. I have had extensive experience during my college days at the tutoring center and beyond in tutoring students in different areas of math.
My approach is interactive since it is important for the student to see what he or she knows and how one can build on that knowledge. I ask my students questions to help them recall useful conc... ... More

"Patient algebra, geometry, math in GED/ASVAB, history, pol.sci. tutor"
My tutoring work and experience extends into Algebra 2. While I need to brush up on logarithms when I tutor students in this subject, all other areas I find easy and enjoyable. I have found it's easy to help students advance through much of algebra 2 with only one on one attention. I went through four years of high school mathematics myself which included trig and pre-calculus. I also completed a year of calculus in college. While I'm comfortable with all we covered in high school, I don't tutor in calculus. ... More

"Well-rounded English and Verbal SAT/ACT Tutor and Published Writer"
Hello. A teacher and tutor for over 20 years, I have always enjoyed the one-on-one format. It's a forum where I can genuinely assess the learner's needs, learning styles, and much more. No two learners are the same, and each flourishes using varying techniques and settings. As a result, I realize the integral need to develop plans that best suit that individual, making learning personal and meaningful.
Over the years, I have instructed students of all age levels, ranging from kindergarten th... ... More
