Young minds are so able to learn; together, we are building new pathways of understanding math in this youngster. I observe her responses to my questions and suppositions; I encourage her to trust her math instincts; and I ask her to go a step farther--just a bit beyond her comfort limit, waiting for her to make the mental calculations. Then, we are rewarded, both of us, with seeing a barrier of misunderstanding is knocked down and a dike of confidence and empowerment is strengthened.

"Mrs. Carol is a wonderful tutor!"

- Angelette, Jacksonville, AR on 1/11/13
Carol replied on 1/13/2013

Setting out a plan of study and encouraging on-going productive study skills are integral to how I help my students approach an up-coming national qualification exam. We talk time management, content area mastery, and how to best utilize their financial resources as they prepare for the test. Angelette worked very hard and long with me to improve her scores on the TEAS so she is eligible for a specialized nursing program. I asked a lot from her by way of study time allocation and topic coverage. As we met I saw the progress she made in three critical areas: Biology, General Math, and English Language. She increased her scores in all of these and excelled by a whopping 20% in her language content area. I freely share several test preparation resources with my tutoring students to save them funds and to allow them to quickly focus their energy and time on improving their test taking skills while they review/learn the required content knowledge. What a blessed pleasure it has been to meet and work with Angelette! She will succeed and go on to bless many others with her gentle care.

"Great tutor! "

- Ashley, Jacksonville, AR on 12/31/12
Carol replied on 1/2/2013

Helping a young person to further their vocational goals is extremely rewarding to me as a tutor for all ages! Ashley now has new a doorway to walk through because of the hard work she put in to prepare her for a recent ACT test. It has been my pleasure to sit down with Ashley to develop a study plan for the improved ACT score she needed for a higher education program she had set her sites on. I then worked with her in my areas of specialty: reading, writing, and grammatical understanding. I also gave her study tools and discussion time to prepare her for the math portion of the exam. But, ultimately, because Ashley devoted herself to regularly study between our sessions she has reaped this reward on her way to a brighter future.

"Excellent Session"

- Patti, Cabot, AR on 11/2/12
Carol replied on 11/2/2012

The time I spent with Patti's daughter did fly past fast. We are exploring numbers together; shoring up her speed and fluency with simple addition, subtraction, multiplication and in the near future, division, will provide the stepping stones to all aspects of higher level math. This youngster is another great student I have been blessed to have met; we're both learning. Learning together is always best, too!

"Great tutor, excellent personality and interaction with student"

- Leanne, Jacksonville, AR on 10/20/12
Carol replied on 11/3/2012

Leanne's granddaughter and I have a fun time with math. Keeping it silly and relaxed makes a hard topic easier to bear and allows her bright mind to ruminate on the subject. Building her self-confidence in her math skills is ulterior to my work with her each lesson. We talk about her math hangups--and mine, as a way to explore our learning styles and to open our minds to more possibilities. I am seeing nice progress and I look forward to the great accomplishments in store for her by the end of this school year! Way to go!

"Is a very helpful Tutor"

- Christin, Sherwood, AR on 7/7/12
Carol replied on 7/9/2012

Christin and Shawn are two young adults with their eyes towards their futures as each are investing time and energy in reaching more educational goals. It is my pleasure to work with them and I look forward to the seeing their achievements to come.

"I'm learning French!!"

- Brenda, Little Rock, AR on 6/28/12
Carol replied on 7/1/2012

J'adore mes lecons avec Brenda! I'm loving the lessons I have with Brenda. Such a fun use of time. She's brave and determined to speak French when she's traveling abroad. Brava! Way to go, Gal!

"An absolute gem!"

- Twana, Jacksonville, AR on 5/30/12
Carol replied on 6/25/2012

It has been a great pleasure to tutor Twana's son in reading comprehension and composition. He's a wonderful young man and has goals for his future. What a joy!
