About Carina

Over the years, I have taught everything from Language Arts in high-school classrooms to Creative Writing at the university level. I have worked with a diverse array of students and I use a multitude of tools to help my students succeed. In addition to my work as an editor and instructor, I have developed interdisciplinary curriculum to meet Common Core requirements and I've worked as a proofreader for a variety of professional publications. I hold a Writing Certificate from Arizona State University and I also have a current professional license on file at the Colorado Department of Education with an emphasis in Language Arts.

I am a working writer, which allows for a flexible tutoring schedule. I look forward to helping students succeed in their studies, which I accomplish through supportive feedback for constructive criticism. Let's connect and start the process of moving forward with your goals. I look forward to hearing from you.

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.

Common Core

I have a Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. In addition, I developed curriculum based on the Common Core as a member of the D-11 Curriculum Design Team. Professional development included Rigorous Curriculum Design with Larry Ainsworth and Cognitive Rigor Matrix with Karen Hess. I was also a participant in the Colorado Writing Project (Summer 2012).
