What Parents and Students have to say about Nancy:
“Every now and then you come across someone who is truly amazing at what they do. Nancy Gleason is one of those people. Whether you have a child who loves math or struggles with math, she is a resource to consider.
My son has had the opportunity to work with Nancy and she has helped him to continue to love and learn math. She has a great way of instructing, guiding and challenging a child and is someone I would strongly recommend. “
“Hello Nancy I would be glad to say few words on behalf of the progress and attitude of our son Dexter since he worked with you this past summer. First off, Thank you! All and all, he has more confidence with the material presented this school year and feels as though he can progress with his math education. You have also created a relationship with him, letting him know he had some one to turn to for help with problems in this field in the future. Thanks again, Nancy”

“Nancy Paul has a very nice manner of which teen boys can relate. I feel she really “gets” my son and in turn her time with him is a positive math experience. Nancy’s new service this year of being online in the evening is an added benefit that really helps when checking homework.”
“Nancy is a very skilled teacher. We are thrilled with her methods, knowledge and ability to command respect and make learning fun for our 14 year old son. And she was able to do this not only in person while we were in Stowe, but also via weekly Skype sessions while we were living in South America for 7 months. As a result of working with Nancy, our son returned to school at or ahead of his school’s math curriculum. We are very fortunate to have had and to have Nancy working with our son.”
“Our son struggled with math when he was in sixth grade and again in seventh grade. We decided to seek help beyond the school because he had developed a true dislike for math and we believed that it was critical that he grasp math now, in the middle school years, or he was going to be buried by high school math. Further, his interests are in technology and engineering and without strength in math he’d never be able to pursue his passions. We asked around and Nancy Gleason came highly recommended by a few friends whose sons were being tutored by her not because of deficits but to progress in math beyond the school program. We decided to discontinue math at the school and have him work with Nancy for the remainder of the year.
After our son’s first meeting with Nancy, I was stunned to hear him say (as he was so discouraged by math), “I really like Nancy as a teacher and I think I’m going to learn a lot from her.” Within weeks he was loving math again, his confidence in the subject was rebuilding and he had learned more than he had in the previous year. Only four months later math is hands down his favorite subject and he has not only mastered the 6th and 7th grade concepts he had previously struggled with but he is getting high marks in eighth grade concepts.
Nancy is by far the best teacher he has had in his academic years. Our son will tutor with her for eighth grade and perhaps beyond. All other parents I know who have enlisted Nancy rave as I do about her ability to engage and teach. I have passed her name onto at least four other parents who are looking for more. Our enthusiasm for what she has done for our son is sincere.

Nancy has the ability to engage her students and see math through an expanded lens. She gets them to think outside the box and develop an understanding of concepts beyond a textbook. My daughter has worked with Nancy since we moved to Stowe and she is definitely a favorite teacher and mentor. Nancy has encouraged her and enriched her math experience in school. We could not be more pleased. With Nancy’s help, she is one of the top math students in Vermont

She genuinely wants every student that she teaches to excel and succeed and she works hard to make sure that happens. She is flexible to teaching students at all levels and has a way of making everyone feel like they can achieve success in math.”

What Parents and Students have to say about Hannah:
“When I was younger, I always loved to read. However, once I hit high school, reading became more of chore than of a fun hobby. Hannah reminded me of the reason I loved to read, and I felt the fire inside of me light up again. It reminded me of the power of literature. With her help, I regained my passion for writing I once had and improved massively. Her unique laugh and quirky personality made my days interesting, and gave me something to look forward to.”
-12th grade student
“I would not be the writer I am today without Hannah. I feel as though my writing has drastically improved. My words were pretty unstructured and I vividly remember struggling when it came to free writing. Her advice to me has been a lot of help, and she let me do most of my writing independently, which allowed me to find mistakes on my own. I’m very excited to use the newly found skills.”
-10th grade student
“My writing has improved so much! I wouldn’t have been able to improve so much if it wasn’t for Hannah’s guidance. I have gotten better with my grammar and use of commas, which have helped improve the fluency of my writing. I have learned how to better edit my writing and how to distinguish between things that really pertain to my main point and things that are actually off-topic.”
-10th grade student
“I have seen such a change in [name] this year. Thanks to Hannah he has allowed himself to be more creative in his writing and think outside the box. I have also seen a big change in his vocabulary, which I know will serve him well going forward. She has made an impact on his writing in every way and we will always be grateful.”

“Ms. Mangham is wonderful. She always is willing to take time out of her day to help us and make sure we are doing well. She has a great sense of humor, and I look forward to going to English class in the day. She is open-minded on the students’ ideas and analyses rather than shutting down any opinion that doesn’t match yours. She is extremely knowledgeable, and her comments and suggestions are always incredibly helpful.”
-9th grade student
“She is extremely supportive and always makes me feel like I can come to her for anything. She is good at making students think and keeping a positive attitude. She is good at making people feel safe and comfortable enough to share thoughts with others.”
