“**Thorough, Professional, and Effective**”

I am a former manufacturing engineer with a Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Colorado at Boulder. I have been teaching and tutoring since 2006, both in public school settings and with a leading test preparation company. I have recently completed the Masters of Engineering Management Program at UCCS.

Our experience with Carol was very positive. My son met with her a handful of times to prepare for retakes of both the ACT and SAT. His ACT score jumped 4 points and his SAT score increased by 100. Carol was always professional and communicative, easy to contact, and, after each lesson, gave thorough reviews of the lesson with clear practice assignments and schedule information. She offered strategies to help him manage his test taking time and efficiently prepare for the upcoming tests. Her 90-minute lessons were well-planned and suited for the goals they discussed and offered effective results. I'm very happy to have run across Carol B. on WyzAnt. My son enjoyed meeting with her and always felt at ease while working with her on improving his test-taking skills. I highly recommend her tutoring services.

My daughter liked the thoughtful approach to understanding and strategies for answering questions within time. With the extra work she needs to put in, she could end up doing very well on the exam.

Carol helped my son finish some Algebra I summer work. She is well-versed and was an excellent tutor for my middle school student. Thank you Carol.

Mrs. B. helped me a lot and I was able to get my trigonometry homework assignment done much faster. She helped me understand the material.

Carol did a great job helping my student focus on her weaknesses and how to best approach the test to optimize her score. It is not easy working with my student, so thanks for keeping her focused!!

We have had three sessions with Carol B. and will continue for as long needed.I can see the confidence in my child again. I think this was a big step for my child & thankful we proceeded with the help and are grateful we chose Carol B.

That's our name for her!!! Thank you for all your time and effort! Taylor loves learning from you. It means a lot to me that she is enjoying being tutored.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.
