Montclair State University (Spanish )

Universidad Complutense de Madrid (PhD)
I have been teaching at the secondary and undergraduate levels for 17 years. As a teacher of Spanish, I have not only an excellent command of the Spanish language, but also a great deal of cultural knowledge. I lived in Chile in South America for 18 years and in Spain for four. I have traveled throughout Latin America and Spain and consequently I make my classes come alive with real life experiences. I believe that all language classes should include as much authentic material as possible so that students may relate to the culture, not just the language. This helps to motivate a student to learn and connect with another culture, something that is very important in today's world.
My BA is in Spanish and French, my MA is in Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language from New York University and my doctoral studies are in the area of International Education. While living in Chile, I tutored secondary and elementary level students and taught undergraduate courses at a private university.
My teaching style is communicative. Though I place emphasis on the ability to communicate ideas, I also stress grammar and vocabulary. All the skills (reading, writing, speaking, listening) are fundamental to becoming proficient in a second language. My classes focus on mastering all skills and the methods are meaningful and relevant to the age of the student I tutor. I have been teaching at the secondary and undergraduate levels for 17 years.

In one word: FABULOUS!
My son is 4 years behind on Spanish and thanks to Carole he feels much more comfortable in class, got some great grades, which was an immediate confidence boost.
Carole is wonderful with him, patient, sweet, extremely professional, always on time and has a fun and effective way of teaching the language.
Born to teach!
Carole was an immensely valuable asset and was one of the primary reasons why I was able to pass Spanish 201 at university. She has an extensive collection of tools at her disposal and was knowledgeable of both Spanish grammar and vocabulary. I had a two year gap where I didn't practice Spanish at all but Carole was able to hop in and teach me three semesters of Spanish in only one semester!
Carol works well with my son. She has a great understanding of the Spanish curriculum. She is able to determine Josh's weak areas and focus on those, which is very helpful. Carol is a knowledgeable and kind tutor.
Carole was instrumental in helping my daughter organize her thoughts for her college essay. She patiently explained the steps for the Common App and reduced a lot of college application anxiety in our household. A fantastic college counselor!
Carole was absolutely terrific. She was helpful and knowledgeable, as well as patient and persistent in the tutoring. She gave the student the needed confidence to overcome his past experience with the language and succeed in passing the course with a good grade. Mission accomplished!
Carole is really great! Very enthusiastic and easy to work with. I wish I still lived in NJ so I could continue with her.
Although I have only had Carole for a couple of classes, she has taught me so much about Spanish and has increased my knowledge a ton! She is very patient and reviewed the material until I understood it. Her schedule was very flexible to my needs, which was very important in my circumstance. She honestly has taught me a year worth of Spanish in just 2 short classes. Thank you for your help!
I needed someone to proofread my medical school personal statement, and so I reached out to Carole through WyzAnt. She responded very quickly to my message for help, and we got started right away. After she read through my essay (which I thought was perfect), she quickly pointed out many flaws, and suggested ways which they could be corrected. What I really liked however, was that not only was she a patient tutor, but she listened to what I wanted to do rather than what she wanted. I would highly recommend her to anyone that is looking to correct or improve their writing, I don't think my essay would have come out this good with anyone else.
One lesson before the midterm helped my junior improve his scores. Very quick to grasp his problems and tackle his weakness.
Carole is one of the best tutors I have ever hired for my children. She is positive, flexible, and has been extremely helpful in helping my children understand Spanish. I am so glad that I took the chance and hired her through Wyzant!
Preparing for a trip to Ecuador and unimpressed with my Spanish 2 teacher at college, I hired Carole to work with me and what a great decision that was. she is always prepared, her explanations are clear and thorough. She helps with homework, and also helps me integrate the material by having conversations on relevant topics. she has set up on-line flash cards for me on her own time, which are so helpful. I had originally worried that she might be more used to dealing with children, but she works at an adult level pretty much perfectly.
I am now getting an A in my class, feel much more prepared for my trip and really look forward to my lessons with Carole.
There was no wasted time once Carole sat down with my son. She was able to assess where he was at and the areas he needed to work on. They got right to work and I was impressed by how much Carole was able to get done with him in their first session. By the end of the session they had printed out a set of vocab flashcards, gone over an old test, and worked on his homework. She was very upbeat and very positive.
Carole is very detailed when it comes to tutoring. She makes sure my daughter understands the lesson and can do it on her own. She's a very good teacher with a great personality.
Carole is a great tutor, very patient and thorough. She was flexible in her availability, allowing for extra sessions for the final exam. My son liked working with her, she reviewed written assignments by email, and was available for questions. I wish we had found her earlier in the school year!
Carole has a wonderful rapport with people, especially children. Her ability to connect with my daughter and her talent at teaching simple concepts, as well as more advanced topics, are both truly superior.
My daughter tells me that Carole goes step by step to figure out where she is having trouble, makes sure she gets to the root of the issue and then figures out the solution all the while valuing my daughter's input. I can see that Carole understands the pitfalls that come with a non-native child learning Spanish. She tutors on all forms of the language including reading, writing and focuses greatly on speaking. She does a great job with teaching grammar and pronunciation needed to learn the language. She provides supplemental materials to enhance the speaking and listening skills and these have greatly helped my daughter. She is very knowledgeable in the test taking methods that helps my daughter a great deal in exam prep.
Carole has excellent communication skills, is extremely organized and very reliable. She is very easy to talk to and has a very positive demeanor. My daughter always looks forward to seeing her.
"Dear Senora Carole,
The best thing about you is that you are a good teacher. Your teaching style is great because you have a good voice and you are creative. You also encourage me to learn how to speak Spanish. Thanks a lot!"
Carole is a great tutor. She is flexible in scheduling and really works hard to be available when needed for the student. She knows high school Spanish levels very well and can anticipate the class teacher lesson plan. And she does extra things like providing supplemental materials as needed and reviewing written assignments by email. She creates a very comfortable relationship with the student to make the sessions very effective. She really improved my child's performance.
Carole is a fantastic, encouraging, and dedicated tutor that truly goes above and beyond for her students. I would recommend her to anyone, at any level. I have taken over 12 years of Spanish with many different teachers and Carole is by far the best language instructor I have ever had. She makes everything make sense.
Carole is the best tutor you can wish to have. She is a caring and patient person. She is very knowledgeable and a great teacher. My daughter learned a great deal with Carole.
Carole is a wonderful tutor, and a great person. I am learning, and enjoying the lessons. I wish I found her earlier.
Carole is a great tutor. My only regret is that I didn't find her earlier in the year. My son feels he learned more in one hour than in a month at school.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
