Augustana College (Biology)
University of Illinois at Chicago (PhD)
I have 18 years of experience tutoring in math and science. I have a strong math and science foundation. I received my PhD in Molecular Genetics in 2006 from the University of Illinois at Chicago, and I currently work at Loyola University as a research scientist. I use math and science in my everyday life. My goal as a tutor is not only to help students learn math and science, but also to share my enthusiasm and passion for these subjects. When I work with students, I make sure that that they understand the concepts before moving on. I give students additional practice problems to ensure that they understand the concepts, and I have the student explain the concepts back to me.
I also help students prepare for the ACT. I provide my own materials, including actual ACT exams from previous years. I work on reviewing concepts, going through practice tests, and teaching students test taking strategies. I have 18 years of experience tutoring in math and science.

Carrie is extremely knowledgeable, as well as very patient. It has been quite a long time since I've been exposed to mathematical formulas. Carrie broke down formulas to help ease my apprehension. She supplied detailed hand-outs, highlighting key formulas with examples. Carrie also supplied mock take home ACT tests, with detailed time breakdowns for each section.
She is very understanding helps me with areas that I struggle in. Carrie is also very patient with me if I do not completely grasp a topic or if I run out of time during a certain ACT subject.
Both my daughter and I instantly liked Carrie's demeanor and approach. My daughter had very specific expectations of her tutor. Weaker in the math and science portions of the ACT, Carrie immediately devoted the first hour to math and the second to science. But rather than spending the entire hour of each subject just practicing test problems, each hour started off with a few practice problems. This was followed by a discussion on reasoning through a problem and other problem-solving techniques. This was exactly the type of help my daughter needed! We are very pleased.
Carrie is worth her weight in gold! She helped me understand things I never thought I could. If you need math or science help, Carrie is your girl!
Carrie F. has been very patient with my daughter working through the concepts and helping my daughter solve the problems. She explains things in a way that makes the concepts easy to understand.
My son expressed that he learned more from her than his teacher. I am very pleased with her promptness, patience and spirit. Carrie seems knowledgeable about the subject and demonstrates explanatory skills. This was his first lesson with her, but if first impression is everything, then I think his understanding will soar!
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.
I have a PhD in molecular genetics from the University of Illinois at Chicago, which I received in 2006. I currently work as a research scientist at Loyola University. I work on bladder cancer research.
After being the only freshman to take Genetics (a 300 level course) at Augustana College and doing exceptionally well, the professor asked me to tutor other students. I started tutoring in genetics in my sophomore year at Augustana College (1997).
