My name is Carla, and I am a mother, grandmother, writer and traveler, with fifteen years of classroom teaching experience that can be immensely effective for you.
After a successful career teaching English and Drama, I moved on to do other things. I miss teaching, but I would not want to be contractually tied to a school, and I would not want to teach in large group settings. I prefer to teach individual students or small groups, and I prefer to have a modicum of freedom to set my schedule. My love of language and my sincerely caring demeanor make me a valuable teacher for all age groups. I can help students to develop writing skills, improve all speaking and vocabulary skills, learn how to analyze a piece of literature, etc. Further, I am an acting and creative writing instructor with a strong background in French and German as well.
My philosophy is that the teacher is a facilitator whose job it is to empower the student to learn how to learn. I encourage and model positive progress, and I avoid criticism except as a constructive exercise. I want you to feel good about your ability to write and speak, and I will work with you to build your skills and to lose your ineffective habits.
Together we can do great things.
