Scott nancarrow, B.A.
As an education associate, Scott seeks to engender a feeling of independence and resilience in his students while still providing patient and compassionate guidance at a developmentally-appropriate level. With an emphasis on rapport-building, Scott works with students to help them marshal their unique skills and talents to address their educational goals with a sense of pride and good humor. He typically works with students in fourth through twelfth grades on subjects including math (pre-Algebra, Algebra I &II, Geometry, Trigonometry), science (earth science, chemistry, biology), Spanish, social studies, and English/Language Arts skills.
Scott holds a bachelor’s degree from Occidental College and has worked to support students in the San Gabriel Valley for more than fourteen years. He has taught in museums, schools, and learning resource centers, as well as tutored many students in one-on-one and group settings, developing skills and employing strategies to support students with wide-ranging needs and strengths. He is currently the Director of Learning Resources at Chandler School, a K-8 independent school in Pasadena, where he works with students, teachers, and families to foster student success and confidence. Scott values life-long learning and finds that collaborative approaches to education strengthen students as well as the professionals who work with them.
Scott is passionate about art and music, and can often be spotted either quietly reflecting in a museum gallery or lost near the front of a crowd at a local concert.
