About Carrie

I have a passion for elementary education. I have worked as a paraprofessional designing student's learning plan and following individualized plans to ensure students are successful. After working as a paraprofessional for 5 years, I went on to pursue my Master's Degree in Elementary Education. I work to make sure that all students regardless of level understand most concepts and my past experience has been instrumental in helping me make this happen though I know some students will still need reinforcement which is why I am interested in tutoring your child.
I will look at your child as an individual and design a program of study to best meet their needs to ensure success. I have plenty of patience and different strategies to use to make sure your child does not feel stressed during our learning time together. I will keep in contact with all parents I work with; taking the time to explain to them what each session entailed and why I chose to approach each subject as I did. I will make sure parents have tools available to offer their child if he/she becomes stressed during homework hours. I believe that open communication with parents plays a key role to each child's success in learning. I will make myself available during certain hours via email or phone call if needed to help parents in any way on days where I am not physically there to tutor your child.
I ask that there be a quiet place free from TV and other household noise when I come to tutor your child. I am willing to bring my own computer, but would appreciate one available as a backup. I will use as many manipulatives as it takes to ensure success so I also ask that the area where I work with your child has a table or desk free of clutter and supplied with pencils, glue, scissors and crayons or colored pencils. I will discuss reward programs with parents and agree on one that is suitable for all situations. My goal is to help your child gain not only knowledge but the confidence they will need to succeed.

I have worked with 2 ESL students over the past 7 years in the area of reading and writing skills. Working to instill correct grammar and fluency.

I look forward to helping your child understand. No matter what the subject is I am ready to help relieve the anxiety that school can bring and help them gain academic confidence. Please contact me via email if interested. I will respond within 1 business day to your request so that if I am a good fit for your child we can begin the road to confidence as soon as possible.
