About Carla


Bio

Math is marvelous! Well, it can be...but it can also be super tough and super scary!

I have been fortunate to have been a math teacher for 20 years. It's hard for me to believe I have been so lucky to grow and evolve my practice over all of that time, and get to work with awesome students in the process. In addition to my many years of experience, I have a Master's in Education with a Specialization in Middle School Math. (Yes, that's a thing!)

Math is marvelous! Well, it can be...but it can also be super tough and super scary!

I have been fortunate to have been a math teacher for 20 years. It's hard for me to believe I have been so lucky to grow and evolve my practice over all of that time, and get to work with awesome students in the process. In addition to my many years of experience, I have a Master's in Education with a Specialization in Middle School Math. (Yes, that's a thing!)

I have taught sixth grade through eighth grade, including Algebra I. In addition, I was an elementary math coach, so I am also well-versed in concepts taught from kindergarten through fifth grade. I am familiar with Common Core standards, and the methodologies used to teach those standards, no matter what curriculum your child is using in school.

I don't see myself as a "homework helper," I see myself as a "foundation-builder," a "sense-strengthener," and a "math mentor" - if your student has been struggling in math, they need someone who can really understand why they are struggling, someone who can address their misconceptions, and bridge from what they know to where they need to be!

As a teacher, my mantra is to “meet students where they are” and build student skills from that point. Even our struggling learners have a vast amount of mathematical experiences. In order to help them best succeed, we need to determine how to tap into their knowledge and build on those experiences. Through a variety of strategies and discussion, students come to realize they are on a mathematical journey that is sometimes challenging, but also rewarding.

All students can achieve; and I know I can determine the best way to help a student reach their potential. I want students to be problem-solvers, not just algorithms memorizers. I am preparing them for careers that might not even exist yet - a huge responsibility for today’s educators – but also such an exciting prospect!

I have been told, "You’re the math teacher. You must be so amazing at math!"

The truth is, I strug

Excellent!! Highly recommend her!

She is everything we were looking for in a math tutor. Knowledgeable, enthusiastic, patient, flexible, and really great with my daughter - and we are seeing results!

Awesome tutor!

My daughter had really been struggling with pre-algebra and Carla helped explain things in a way that she really understood. She knew how to start small and then expand the ideas out into more complex problems. Highly recommend!
