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!

English

I’m a native speaker of Standard American English with a master of arts degree in English with a concentration in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.

I’ve worked as an English tutor at San Francisco State University, helping both native and non-native English speakers proofread, edit, and rewrite papers on a variety of topics.

ESL/ESOL

I have a Master of Arts degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. I have tutored individuals and small groups at SFSU's Learning Assistance Center for two semesters, specializing in ESL students. I have also assisted in several ESL classes at CCSF, both in credit and non-credit classrooms from beginning level to advanced academic. I am currently working with a variety of students all over the world helping them with their academic and business English.

Grammar

I have a Master of Arts degree in English with a concentration in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.

As part of my degree program, I studied English grammar and sentence structure. So, in addition to being a native speaker of American English, I know the rules of grammar. Also, I have had experience explaining these rules to students at the Learning Assistance Center of San Francisco State University while I worked there as a reading, writing, and study skills tutor.

Proofreading

I have a Master of Arts degree in English and I have been working as a proofreader and editor on a variety of online outsourcing marketplaces. Here are some reviews from clients I've worked with:

“Carol is the perfect proof reader and content verifier. She masters the English language (US) like a professor of literature…. I would always come back to her.”

“Lightening speed and high class accuracy. I am really glad to find this freelancer…. You can definitely trust her... :)”

Public Speaking

My job as the Regional Sales Manager of a men's clothing company often required me to speak in front of groups. I'm also a trained actor, having completed several acting classes locally as well as the month-long intensive at Shakespeare and Company in Lenox, MA and LITES summer school in Ireland. I acted in the Bay Area for 10 years and was Artistic Director of Ambit Theatre Company. I have also performed twice at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Reading

As a reading tutor at the Learning Assistance Center of San Francisco State University, I have helped students of all levels, from incoming freshmen to graduate students, in a variety of disciplines. I also have 30+ years of business experience, primarily in the Tax field, so I am skilled in analyzing difficult texts.

Theatre

I was the Artistic Director of Ambit Theatre Company. I have taken theatre and acting classes at City College of San Francisco and San Francisco State University. I trained at Shakespeare and Company in Lenox, MA and worked with a variety of theatre companies throughout the Bay area as actor, producer and director.

Writing

I have tutored writing at the Learning Assistance Center of San Francisco State University, so I am experienced working with all levels, from incoming freshman to graduate students, in a variety of academic disciplines. In addition, I have 30+ years of business experience in all types of business writing including reports, executive summaries, emails, and letters. With a Master of Arts degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages, I can be particularly helpful to writers who are not native speakers of English.
