About Carolyn

I have taught and tutored high school and middle school math since 1976 and currently teach math at Granite Oaks Middle School. There are four components to my tutoring:

1. Concepts and Skills: help students understand the concepts behind what they are learning and give them practice on the skills they need to become mathematically fluent.

2. Accuracy, Organization, and Efficiency: help students organize their work and become accurate and efficient problem solvers.

3. Study Skills: help students learn effective ways to study for tests and quizzes and help them review material as they go.

4. Errors and Gaps: identify errors students make and gaps they have in their understanding and give them specific practice to learn correct methods and mini-lessons to bridge gaps in knowledge.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

CBEST

The CBEST covers essential mathematics skills including estimation, statistics and probability, measurement, computation, basic algebraic manipulation, problem solving, and numerical and graphical relationships.

I am a K-12 Certificated Mathematics Teacher, have taken and passed the CBEST, and have a B.S. in mathematics from U.C. Berkeley. I can teach all of the mathematics needed to pass the CBEST as well as assist you with test taking strategies to help you do well on the test.

Very Caring! — We just started with tutoring with Carolyn, and are so glad we made this decision. She is so professional and you can tell she really cares about Madeline's success. My daughter appreciates how patient she is and has already said that it has helped her in her geometry class. ...
