Hi! My name is Carolyn, and I taught math and physics in Wisconsin for ten years. Currently, I am certified to teach math in both Wisconsin and Illinois, and I do substitute teaching at about ten different schools in both Illinois and Wisconsin. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Math education from Alfred University In New York. After marrying and moving to Illinois, I worked in the Statutory Accounting Department at Allstate Insurance Company, served as bookkeeper and accountant for a family owned business, raised 2 children, and then transitioned back to teaching full time. I've been told over and over that I have a knack for explaining math and making it easier to understand. Explaining math concepts to students on a one to one basis is one of my favorite things to do. I can help with any level of math through Pre Calculus.
I have a great deal of experience working with students with a variety of learning disabilities within a standard classroom setting. I have modified lessons and assessments for many students with individualized education plans and have been especially successful working with students and parents to advance students through various classes. Currently as a substitute teacher, several schools call me first for their special ed teachers because I am very patient and work so well with their students allowing for the many varied learning styles. My most recent continuing education classes have been in the areas of special ed, giving me even greater knowledge and resources to use with special needs students.
Wonderful Tutor — Carolyn has been my son's tutor for the past two years and he went from failing algebra to a C+ in the class. She is readily available and is very patient and understanding when teaching and explaining his lessons. I highly recommend her!! ...
