About Carol

Thank you for looking at my profile.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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

I passed the CBEST the first time and had no problem with the language/writing portion. I would feel confident preparing students for any of the language/writing parts of the test.

Dyslexia

I am trained in Lindamood-Bell symbol imagery and LiPS phonemic awareness programs and have used them since 1999. These techniques are used in the Lindamood-Bell clinics to help students with dyslexia to decode. I use these methods regularly in my ESL classes with my students when they leave out or add sounds to words.

ESL/ESOL

I have over 14 years of teaching ESL in the classroom, an MA in TESOL, and tutoring experience with ESL students.

Phonics

I am trained in the LiPS phonemic awareness program and have used it since 1999 to help students with phonemic awareness issues. Phonemic awareness is necessary to help students learn to decode words (i.e., read what words say). Teaching students sounds and how to put them together is the essence of phonics instruction. I enjoy teaching people these techniques.
