My teaching style is relaxed with the individual needs of the student in mind. I adapt my classes to the learning style of the student in order to insure student success. A typical class with me would include lots of student input and interaction.
I am a retired elementary school teacher with a degree in English. I have TESOL qualifications and have had varied experiences teacher ESL to youngsters. I have also a background in vocal music and dance. In my previous life, I was a nurse and taught nursing at the college level.
My rates are consistent. Times may be substituted. Cancellation with 24 hours notice.

My husband and myself think that Nancy will be an absolutely wonderful teacher and asset to any student that she works with. She was our daughters music teacher all through elementary school, and her dedication, teaching style, praise and kindness was a big inspiration in our daughters life and continues to be till this day. She is a wonderful person and any child would be extremely lucky to have her as their teacher. Simply said, she would be an asset and whether the child is 4 or 16 they will have a teacher who is considerate, intelligent, kind and a strong woman who cares about the child, not just while teaching but after as well. My husband, our daughter and myself cannot say enough wonderful things about Nancy, she truly is a teacher who cares about their student and will be a blessing and asset to any teaching organization.

Nancy is a well known educator and I had the pleasure of knowing her a as fellow faculty member at Georgian College. She is compassionate, intelligent, and understands sound pedagogy. I highly recommend Nancy to tutor with your organization!. Yours, Steve McDonald, Lead Faculty, General Education, Georgian College, Orillia Campus.
I met Nancy when he visited my country about 4 years ago. Even though we are from different worlds, we connected immediately. This was in part because Nancy listened deeply! She did PDs with some of our teachers. They still talk about Nancy's sessions and passion for education to date.
