Hi, my name is Carrie and I have a Master of Arts in Teaching Secondary Education degree from National-Louis University. I hold a Type 09 certificate in Social Science with endorsements in U.S. History, World History, Civics/Political Science and Middle School Social Science. Along with those subject areas, I am able to tutor students in geography, psychology, and sociology.

Although I am not endorsed in English, I am currently a writer for a weekly newspaper where I've honed my writing and editing skills. With these skills, I am able to help students write essays or research papers on a variety of topics. I am also willing to tutor students from K-3 in reading, writing, phonics, grammar, spelling and elementary math.

My goal is to help students become dynamic writers and critical thinkers who understand history and current events. I want students to expand their minds and be confident in their abilities. One of my signature teaching methods is to provide real world or current event examples to help students understand history and the world around them.

Helpful with Music History Paper

I have been really struggling with this paper and was really worried about it. I have seen other tutors to get it done right before the due date but they were not nearly as helpful as Carrie was. She has been most helpful in getting my paper written out of all my tutors I have seen on this paper.

Rachel, 4 lessons with Carrie

Carrie is very experienced in how to teach US History and Government!

Carrie is very concerned about the learning of the student and plans and thinks through the upcoming content and lessons and brings along targeted materials to augment the student's curriculum. Great job, Carrie!
