My name is Caroline, and I graduated one year ago from Barnard College of Columbia University. I have been tutoring students in history
for six years, as well as editing English
essays. My strengths in history are Ancient, American and European – I received a five on the AP US History
exam, and will gladly help high school students prepare for it. In English, I excel
at teaching grammar
and analysis of literature
. I have been learning Latin for nine years, and have taken classes at the graduate level at Columbia.
I graduated with a double major in English and Anthropology
with a specialization in Archaeology
and a minor in Ancient History.
I always know my schedule three weeks in advance, and as such am able to accommodate a variety of different times and demanding student schedules. In order to help your child succeed, there must be constant reinforcement of what they are learning in class in the home as well. To that end, the best schedule would be for you child to have two one-hour sessions with me per-week, preferably one during the week to help with homework and immediate demands, and one during the weekend to go over everything they've learnt in class and cement that in their heads. While one hour a week is certainly do-able, it is not the best method to help your child succeed, and it is my job to give all students their best chance!
As a younger tutor, I understand the problems that high school students currently face in their education. This puts me in a better position to help them overcome their fears about testing, essay writing
, and reading
As my only means of transportation is the subway or bus, I limit my travel area to within Manhattan, and limited areas in the outer boroughs. Thank you for your understanding.
I look forward to hearing from you!
