About Carolyn

Hi there! I am a former elementary level teacher who is currently taking courses toward a degree in occupational therapy. I have taught within Clay and Duval counties for a total of fourteen years (2000-2014) and have worked with children in the YMCA's YReads Program (2015-2016). The majority of my professional experience lies in the area of working with young children with special needs. I have an excellent work ethic, I thoroughly enjoy working with children, and I have excellent verbal and written communication skills.

I have excellent communication skills and have completed sixty hours of ESOL training. I am able to easily build a rapport with children and enable them to feel comfortable working with me.

I hold Florida certification in Primary Education (Age 3-Grade 3), Elementary Education (Grades 1-6), and Exceptional Student Education (Grades K-12). I have extensive experience working with the primary elementary grades.

I am available on most weeknights and on weekends. I look forward to working with you and your child.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I received a Master of Science Degree in Special Education from Hofstra University (NY) in 2000. I am currently certified to teach elementary education (grades k-6), primary education (age 3-grade 3) and varying exceptionalities (k-12) in Florida. I have had fourteen years of teaching experience at the elementary level.

Handwriting

I taught pre-k/k children and handwriting was an important part of the curriculum. Additionally, I am currently taking courses toward a degree in occupational therapy and I am learning specific techniques for working on handwriting skills with children.

Phonics

I have had fourteen years of teaching experience at the elementary level. For eight of these fourteen years, I taught pre-k/k children and phonics was an important portion of our curriculum.
