About Carla


Bio

I truly enjoy working with students of all ages. I have 6 children and 12 grandchildren, with number 13 on the way! I have taught kindergarten through advanced math in high school, and have been a math adjunct at the college for over 25 years! I can help you understand math better, and my goal is to help you enjoy doing it!

Wouldn't you like for math to be a comfort zone for you? Or at least, wouldn't it be wonderful if it was not a 'torture' zone anymore? If you have never liked math,...

I can help you understand math better, and my goal is to help you enjoy doing it!

Wouldn't you like for math to be a comfort zone for you? Or at least, wouldn't it be wonderful if it was not a 'torture' zone anymore? If you have never liked math, I would like to change your mind! My students know that I not only want them to learn math, but I will do everything I can to help them enjoy learning and using math as much as possible.

I teach and tutor because I love to see students learn. I was not always a great math student myself. I failed 7th grade math...that's right! I fell victim to a teacher that did not love to teach, and I figured if he did not care whether I learned or not, then neither did I. I decided right then, If I ever taught, I would be a teacher that taught students to love what I was teaching...or at least that would be my goal! That moment when things 'click' for my student is the high point of my day!

So come make my day, as I try to help you learn to love math. Let's put math in your 'comfort zone'!

I love students, I love math, and I LOVE to help students LOVE MATH! I have taught math to all types of students, at all levels, from special needs students to Princeton scholars! I have taught in k-12 classrooms for a cumulative 15 years, and college classrooms spanning 25 years.

I would love to help math 'click' for you. Whether you struggle just to keep up with your classmates, or whether you are that faster student trying to really max out the SAT, or clep out of college algebra, I can help you!

Great Statistics tutoring

Carla was awesome! She explained things where I could grasp them and lent me her book since I have a fast paced online class. I will most definitely use her again if needed. I highly recommend her!

Katie, 1 lesson with Carla

Absolutely wonderful!

I’m truly grateful to have found Carla. She has always been available on short notice, explains new math concepts in an easy to understand way and is so friendly and easy to work with. Carla tutored me in College Algebra and was extremely helpful. She is a very passionate teacher and loves what she does. I worked with several online tutors before finding Carla and although friendly they didn’t have near the expertise and knowledge that Carla has. I highly recommend her!

Great Math tutor

Carla is well organized, and has a plan for every lesson. She is knowledgeable, and is able to explain math concepts in a way my son is able to understand. We are very pleased with his progress so far, and that is all thanks to Carla’s instruction.

Geometry

Carla, Thank you for your patience. Thank you for your time. Thank you for helping our son with Geometry. Thank you for explaining things so he could understand. He will be there Tuesday.

Tuesday

Thank you ma’am! It was very educational for me and I know that I am going to learn a lot from you. I am looking forward to tomorrow!

Bernard, 10 lessons with Carla

Gifted teacher!

She has an amazing gift of teaching. My 17 year old’s words were “for the first time ever, I understand math!” Thank you Carla! We hope she will tutor on the college level.

Wonderful and Knowledgeable Math Tutor

Ms. Carla is teaching me Math. I have never really liked math. My teachers at my private school in 6th, 7th and 8th grade were hard to understand and they definitely did not have the love for teaching Math like Ms. Carla does. Our first session was two hours, and it flew by. I was able to grab the concepts we worked on in that session, and I actually have the confidence that I needed to learn the Math. I am so happy my mom found her for me!! Excited about learning Math!

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Carla teaches my daughter precalculus. Before Carla, we had tried several tutors but it didn't work until we found Carla. My daughter had a difficult time for her precalculus but Carla made it a lot easier for her to understand. My daughter said Carla is a great tutor. My daughter will stay with Carla.

Wenfeng, 10 lessons with Carla

Patient and Extremely Helpful Tutor

Carla helped walk me through my homework and was diligently able to answer any questions I had. She was not only patient, but had different ways to show me how to solve the problems if I did not understand immediately.

Abigail, 7 lessons with Carla

Patient and Kind Tutor

Carla has taught me much about exponents in a single hour. She is kind and approaches problems well. She made doing my algebra work easy and has definitely helped me understand how to solve problems with exponents.
