I'm a mature, responsible tutor who is patient and has a great sense of humor. I have a Master of Arts in English with a concentration in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages from San Francisco State University. I have tutored one-on-one and small groups at the Learning Assistance Center at SFSU with great success. I love working with students one-to-one since it allows me to plan lessons specifically for the student's wants and needs. The Director of the LAC had this to say about me in a letter of recommendation:
"Building rapport with students, Carol establishes trust and a positive learning environment....By assessing needs and identifying strengths, Carol helps students set realistic goals. Organized and conscientious, Carol plans for her sessions and figures out how to follow up in ways that are useful to students and encourage transfer of skills....Carol is able to help students develop the confidence and motivation to learn necessary skills and complete tasks....Because of her skills, experience, and background...I strongly recommend Carol...."
I love working with both English language learners and native speakers. I try to make learning fun by using innovative techniques tailored to the student. I hope to work with you in the near future!
