About Carly

I have tutored third graders at LeConte Elementary School,and my friends always ask me to read over their papers before they submit them. Just the other day, my friend asked for my thoughts on her statement of intent for grad school. I have done peer reviews for English 101, 102, and Developmental Psychology. My suggestions have elicited positive feedback from my peers in these classes. I love helping people, and bolstering their confidence.I like watching movies, reading, going to bookstores, and baking cookies.

Having been a serious procrastinator for most of my life, I finally realized that actually studying makes life less stressful. I have developed a week long system for studying. It involves blocking out hours in the calendar (virtual or physical) for specific subjects. It is important to start out with the stuff you do not know, and work your way up to the stuff you do know. Do this for 2-5 hours every day for the first 6 days. It is important to to take breaks, and it is crucial that these hours are not consecutive. On the last day, do a comprehensive review. Anything that is unknown can be looked up. Write it on a flash card and have a friend do drills.

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.

English

I have experience writing analytical and research papers. I was a psychology major with a lot of prerequisites (English 101, English 102, etc). Having just recently graduated from college, I am also very familiar with accidental plagiarism. This can occur when a quotation mark is forgotten, and it can ruin an otherwise perfect paper. I can help prevent this from happening. I have received an B+ or higher on nearly every paper I have written in the past three years. I have studied Shakespeare, Poe, Greek Mythology, and more. I read Austen, Woolf, Wilde, and Dickens for fun. I'm passionate about literature.

Psychology

I have a B.A. in Psychology from UC Berkeley. I have taken classes in Biopsych, Developmental Psychology, Brain Development, Social Psychology, Learning and Memory, Research Methods, and Statistics for Psychology. I have learned how to get the most out of empirical studies for a research paper, and I know APA format.

Reading

I tutored second and third graders in reading at LeConte Elementary in Berkeley,CA while in college, and at the Santa Clarita Community Center's (now defunct) after school program in high school
