I cannot even put into words how much Nancy has helped me. I have known her for over 15 years and she has been a life coach for me through my toughest times and never gave up on me. She has done so much for me from helping me write papers to helping me through family struggles. She helped me quit smoking many years ago by helping me deal with my stress in healthy ways such as working out and making general healthier choices. I would highly recommend Nancy to anyone looking for a life coach, a tutor, or a personal trainer! I am now a successful professional in the dental field and I feel like I owe so much to her!Mar 6, 2018
I'm a former student of Nancy who worked with her before she began "Guide on the Side", but in much the similar capacity at an alternative school. She was a major positive force in my adolescent years, someone who never gave up on a teenager who would have slipped through the cracks of public school so easily. She broadened my horizons, machete'd through red tape, and cared about me in a way that made her far more than just a teacher. Nancy Karmiller is a fantastic educator, but more than that she's a brilliant advocate, amazing mentor, and one of the most compassionate people I have ever had the pleasure of being friends with.Mar 5, 2018
I have known Nancy for 20+ years she not only mentored me she now is helping 3 of my boys(ages of 13, 10, & 8) She is very diverse,patient and flexible. She recently has been also helping my 13 year old with personal training at a gym. You will NEVER find better!Mar 6, 2018
Guide on the side is personalized to each students needs, which allows for every student to maximize their potential. A recourse I would recommend to any student in needMar 6, 2018

Payment methods accepted
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My fees take into account both time spent with my client as well as preparation of support materials and travel time (if applicable).
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I offer a free half hour phone consultation, after which, if the client determines that we are a good fit, I write a proposal detailing my recommendations. Then we get started, and monitor and adjust as needed. There is no “one size fits all,” so communication is key, on all sides.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a Bachelor’s degree in English, and a Master’s in Teaching, both from Lewis & Clark. I have taken a variety of classes in the Educational Administration program, had extensive training in Equity work, and experience teaching English language learners.
