About Carolyn

As your tutor, I will personalize your instruction to build a successful academic experience. I have been a certified teacher in Tennessee, Alabama and in Georgia. My certification is current for both general education (elementary) and special education (K-12) The concentration of my experience includes students with reading/language needs. I have served as a co-teacher by modifying the assignments to fit the student's unique learning abilities.

My experience facilitates an understanding your student's learning style and developmental level. I use strategies to build confidence and to build the "Comfort Zone" necessary to retain the information taught. My expertise is in the area of elementary academics. I have successfully taught students in need of academic support within public, private and home school settings.

I enjoy teaching and learning. It is a part of my creative energy to make the student understand personal strength as we build solid skills. I will look forward to connecting with you to work with your family.

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.
