About Dorothy

ALL TUTORING SESSIONS ARE OFFERED ONLINE

I enjoyed teaching, and love seeing the joy on children faces as they begin to comprehend and learn things they thought they couldn't. When a child experience difficulties in learning, it affects his/her self-esteem. Knowing this, I strive and work extremely hard to bring a smile on the faces on my students and parents. I am confident that you will grow in your area of weakness.

Hello, my name is Dorothy Carey, a certified educator with more than 24 years of teaching-tutoring experience in public and private schools. In six years of my experience, I have served as an administrator. I implemented after-school reading and learning programs, worked with school leaders in devising plans to increase students’ reading level, coordinated standardized testing, and assisted with facilitating Saturday School; a half- day reading program held on Saturdays. I have extensive experience in providing tutoring service to students in reading, reading comprehension and phonics. I use teaching techniques, as well as instructional methods, that demonstrate effectiveness in increasing academic achievement. Some of the techniques include: Scaffolding modeling, focused teaching, guided practice, and independent practice. These techniques can encourage and enhance any student learning style.

During my 25 years of teaching, I have served as a School Guidance Counselor; coordinated and monitored after-school tutoring and statewide standardized testing. I have worked as a private-contract tutor and an online ESL tutor teaching Conversation English to adult learners in Korea, as well as volunteering in an Adult ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) community learning center program.

I have attended numerous educational trainings/workshops and conferences devoted to, reading, tutoring, technology, standardized testing, ESOL, teaching strategies and counseling. I have a BA, MA, and Educational Leadership Certificate, with an ESOL Endorsement.

I desire to inspire, teach, tutor, and equip others to fulfill their academic/educational goals. All of my tutoring sessions are delivered ONLINE. I look forward to working with you in the near future.
