About Carol

I've always loved words and helping other people enjoy and use them. With a PhD in English from Cornell U, I've taught literature and writing at several colleges, including Cornell, Northeastern U in Boston, Auburn U in Alabama, and Davidson College in North Carolina. A couple of years ago I realized that instead of teaching students who were already in college, my passion is to help younger students prepare for college and get in to colleges they would never have dreamed of.

My goal as an English tutor is to help students gain reading, writing, and language skills so that they can succeed in school, in college, in their future careers, and in their personal lives. I help them find their learning style and recognize their own gifts and potential. I love helping students become competent readers and writers. The more people communicate by text and online, the more important writing becomes, even for people who don't think they need writing.

I specialize in writing instruction, especially at the middle school level and beyond, and in improving reading skills at any level. Whether we're working on grammar or essay writing, I try to find the right degree of challenge to keep each student motivated while also experiencing success.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve your own goals.
