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.

Film: I have produced and written three short films, one of which won a number of festival awards in 2000 and was on DuArt's show reel for several years. As the producer, I hired the Line Producer, with whom I collaborated on the hiring of our large staff. Education experience: I have fifteen years of classroom teaching. I was a Drama Director, drama teacher and English teacher. I am currently teaching a summer course at Columbia, where I am an M.F.A candidate.
