About Carin


Bio

I have a great deal of teaching experience, particularly at the college level, having taught composition at California two- and four-year institutions. I have worked with both native speakers and those from ESL backgrounds and with students majoring in many different fields of study from nursing to agribusiness to linguistics. I am patient. I am rigorous in that I want students to work hard and rise to challenges which with my help they can meet.

I have a great deal of teaching experience, particularly at the college level, having taught composition at California two- and four-year institutions. I have worked with both native speakers and those from ESL backgrounds and with students majoring in many different fields of study from nursing to agribusiness to linguistics. I am patient. I am rigorous in that I want students to work hard and rise to challenges which with my help they can meet.

I like the one-to-one interaction and seeing students become more aware of their abilities and set goals they can achieve. And of course, I love to see progress and mastery of skills as we work together. Writing in particular takes time, thought, and attention to detail--it is demanding but rewarding once the process is mastered.

I think my ability to make a connection with people and respond to their needs. I usually am able to assess what a student should work on and develop a plan to help them do that.

I would be able to help, even those students who have not had success, as it just takes finding the right methods for each individual to master a skill set.

Phonics

I have tutored elementary school students in phonics both privately and when I worked at Sylvan Learning Center. I am aware of the Common Core standards for teaching this basic reading skill and I have created materials to help students master phonics--sound combinations, sight words, etc. I have used workbooks, flash cards, and other materials to assist them as well as bringing in children's books to encourage a love of reading in students as they make progress in mastering their skills.

Reading

I have taught reading skills courses and have tutored students in those skills. Reading comprehension, vocabulary building, and literature analysis are some of the areas I have worked in with students. At a more basic level I have worked with beginning readers in mastering their phonics and sight words, in building their vocabulary through understanding word parts (root words, prefixes, suffixes), and in learning the rules of spelling.
