About Carolyn

After graduating college in 2000 with a Bachelor of Science in Communications/PR and a minor in Psychology, I've assisted several college students over the years with their English or Spanish essays and assignments. I've also been tutoring my own children since 2008 as a homeschooling mom. I enjoy learning and helping others and believe each student has it within herself to succeed. I focus on encouraging the student and helping him reach his academic goals. My teaching hours are generally in the evening from Monday through Friday - from 8 PM to 11 PM EST and on the weekends (Saturday and Sunday) from 2 PM to 6 PM EST.

Having grown up in Aruba, I grew up watching cartoons and shows in Spanish. My grandmother was from Puerto Rico and spoke Spanish to me for the first five years of my life. When I was in fifth grade, I started learning formal Spanish. I took Spanish all the way through high school. In college, I was able to skip the core requirements altogether, and although not a native speaker, enrolled in a challenging Spanish literature class which I aced. I also tutored several high school and college students and helped them achieve their goals in Spanish. English has always been my forte. Of all the foreign languages, English has always been my best subject. My parents worked at an American refinery and I heard English all around me at an early age. In high school, I aced my English classes and in college, I continued to excel in literature and writing classes. I went on to obtain a Bachelor's degree in Communications and PR at Florida International University, which provided me with an even stronger writing background. Reading has always been my forte, and I've tutored multiple students on getting behind the meaning in paragraphs and essays. As for my rates, they are $50/hour for online lessons and $65/hour for in-person lessons. If you need help with your studies, contact me and we can set up a meeting. I look forward to helping you with your schoolwork.

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

English had always been my best subject throughout my elementary, middle, and high school years. Throughout, I helped tutor my classmates. I went on to go to college where I took literature and writing classes, which I excelled in. I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Communications/PR and a minor in Psychology. After graduating, I tutored a few college students with their essays.

Reading

I've tutored others in English extensively, and I have experience helping others understand. I have a Bachelor's in Communications/PR with a minor in Psychology.

Spanish

Born in a country where Spanish is spoken widely, I grew up with a grandmother who had lived most of her life in Puerto Rico. Cable TV was only available in Spanish, and in fifth grade at school, I started formal Spanish classes. These continued until I graduated from high school and from there, I went on to skip all my core foreign language courses. For fun, I took a challenging Spanish literature class, which I aced. All throughout, I helped others improve their grades either in English or Spanish.
