My name is Carrie and I am soon to be a New York State certified middle school and high school English Language Arts teacher. I have an MFA in Poetry, a BA in English Literature and 7+ years' experience helping children and adults gain confidence in their reading and writing abilities.

Sometimes students struggle with reading comprehension and essay writing, especially when high-stakes tests are involved. I understand and I am here to help.

I will teach you the "tips and traps" of standardized testing, how to find clues to decipher the meaning of a particular text, and how to organize concepts into manageable chunks.

I will show you how to retrieve information previously stored in your incredible brain and how to generate new ideas with which to infuse your writing.

Whether you want to do well on a particular test, improve your ELA grade, or simply enrich your life by reading and writing more fluently, I can help you accomplish your goals.

You know more than you think you know and are capable of more than you ever imagined. Guaranteed!

Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to meeting you!
