My name is Carolyn, and my teaching experience is diverse. Before I got my masters degree and teaching license, I got my second undergraduate degree in Spanish in order to teach it to non-native speakers. Afterwards, I lived in Bolivia and later in Germany, privately teaching English to non-native speakers. My students in Bolivia were learning English to pass the TOEFL test, and my students in Germany were from all over the world.
After getting my masters degree in Elementary Education, with a focus on grades 4 - 9 in social studies and language arts, I moved to Denver, Colorado, and taught grades 3 - 5 in a bilingual class of Latinos, and I transitioned them to English.
I speak Spanish, German, some French, and I'm currently studying Mandarin. I love traveling and learning new things about people from different cultures.
Currently I live in Virginia, and I have my own English language tutoring business. I work with mostly South Koreans, some of whom live in my town, but the others live in Seoul, South Korea and I Skype with them. I also have taught students from Japan, various Latin American countries, China, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and Iran. Although my emphasis is mostly English, I can tutor students in a variety of subjects.
I also do proofreading and editing of PhD students' dissertations, as well as Visiting faculty's articles and Power Point presentations.
I look forward to working with you in the future!
