About Carol

I have been tutoring students for the last thirty years. My specialty is Math - Algebra & Geometry as well as primary and elementary. I obtained my Master's degree at Boston University, with a focus on manipulative materials, to help students concretize mathematical concepts.
I have taught mathematics, at all levels, K-12, as well as instructed teachers in college, teaching Math Method classes to prospective teachers. I have created math programs for Amherst University and Idyllwild Arts Academy.

Approved subjects

Carol was clear and patient. My daughter was comfortable working with her and she enjoyed the session. I can see she felt more secure in what she is capable of learning.
