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.

Hit the spot

Carolyn was able to identify my son's focus areas very quickly, and then swiftly moved into methodology and test questions and ensuring that they were mastered before moving on to the next topic. Many many thanks !!

Knowledgable and patient

Carolyn helped my daughter with preparation for a test in Math Foundations 2. With one session the day before the test she was able to pass! Continuing session until the end of the school year. Wish we had found her sooner.

Extremely helpful

Carolyn has been tutoring my daughter. Carolyn has been very supportive and patient while helping my daughter with math. Carolyn would not move on until my daughter understood the concept and gave her examples to work on at home. Carolyn is going to start tutoring one of my other children.

Supportive and results oriented tutor.

My daughter has been working with Carolyn for 2 months on math advancement. They have developed a fantastic rapport and my daughter looks forward to her weekly session with Carolyn. Carolyn was quick to identify my daughter's learning style and provides material that has enabled her to reach her goals. Highly recommend!

Knowledgeable and kind

Carolyn is helping my daughter with math. She is so smart and caring. She does not speak to the kids in a manner that makes them feel inferior.... My daughter has more self confidence in just a few sessions. Great tutor!!!
