I was born on the island of Jamaica, but I currently reside in South Carolina. After homeschooling my son for four years and teaching in the South Carolina public school system, I know the importance of early literacy and one-on-one instruction. My company, 123 Mango Tree LLC, was founded in 2007 to promote literacy through reading, music, and art.  Your Mobile Tutor and Nadine Johnson Books are integral parts of 123 Mango Tree LLC.

Your Mobile Tutor provides scholars with the support, guidance and instruction they need to be successful in school. I also have storytime with hands-on craft to help children build their early literacy skills. Your Mobile Tutor offers a convenient way to get your scholars the help they need to stay on track. I travel to your location and tutor scholars in my Education Station.

My love for writing began during college, however, it wasn’t until the birth of my son that I started writing for children. It was difficult for me to find inspiring books that featured African American boys, so I decided to create stories for my son and other children. Under the imprint, Nadine Johnson Books, we create wholesome, character-building books that engage and empower children. From picture books to middle grade books, our unique stories motivate children to keep reading, which is necessary to improve their literacy skills. As a parent and teacher, I know the importance of early literacy. My goal is to provide children—especially reluctant readers—with relevant stories to help them enjoy reading while inspiring them to make a positive difference in the world.

I encourage all parents to start reading to their children as soon as they enter the world, and to make reading a part of their daily routine. This is essential because sharing books with children at an early age helps them to develop language skills, begin enjoying books, and starts them on a path to reading for themselves.



My Little Library 

The My Little Library program was created to help children in need build a home library. Having immediate access to books increases a child's love for reading. This helps children develop strong  literacy skills and create a solid foundation for future learning. Over the years, we have donated more than one hundred books to shelters and local, underserved schools. You can support this worthwhile cause by emailing us HERE.

Early Literacy Workshop
This program is designed for future and current parents who want to learn how to develop an early literacy program for their child. The program also discusses how to build a child's mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual health.

Last Night I Dreamt Workshop
This workshop teaches the basic fundamentals of writing and illustrating a book by giving children the opportunity to create their own books. The books they create are a positive reflection of themselves, their abilities, and their hopes and dreams. They are encouraged to use their books as motivation to achieve their goals. First — Third grades.
