About Carrie

Hello. I am a career changer who is now a teacher. I worked for 16 years in the banking industry and decided to make a switch to a life of service teaching in Chicago's struggling schools. I have tutored and mentored since I was in college so for over 20 years. I was a political science major and a communications minor and also have an MBA. I am (about to be) certified in Elementary education, k-9, and endorsed in Middle school, English/Language Arts, Social Studies, Business, Management, and drama.

I have absolutely fallen in love with teaching! I love the challenges of common core and this we are on the right track increasing the standards for our students in the US. I think it takes all different types of ways to reach a student- verbal, visual, aural, physical, it depends on the student. I have learned differentiation is the key to reaching all students, all the time!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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. 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.

Common Core

I have been working with Common Core standards for 3 years. I am well versed with the vertical alignment of the standards, as well as how they integrate. Specifically, CCSS for RL (reading literature), RI (reading information), W (writing) , RH (reading history) and speaking and listening.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a 6th-grade teacher in Chicago Public Schools. I am a career changer who holds a Master of Business Administration as well. I teach students who are 3-4 grade levels behind, as well as students a grade level ahead. I have diverse learners in my class, so teach using many differentiation strategies.

English

I am qualified in this subject area as I have been teaching ELA (English Language arts) for the past three years. I have have 87% and 93% growth on the English NWEA exam two years running. I have moved students from a 1st/2nd grade skill level to a 5/6th grade skill level as well.

Literature

I teach ELA (English language arts) currently, and have for three years. 75% of my time is focused on literature and literature standards. I am well acquainted with Common Core standards in literature as well as skills related to this area.

Phonics

I am a 6th-grade Literacy teacher in Chicago Public Schools.

Public Speaking

I was a communications minor in undergrad and in my prior career, had multiple public speaking engagements. I also currently work with my students on public speaking.

Reading

I am currently a 6th grade reading teacher. I have shown dramatic growth in my lowest students. I have used guided reading, LLI, BAS and other various systems to move and assess students.

Social Studies

I was a political science major in undergraduate. I also have been teaching social studies the past year in my teaching residency. We focus on document based questioning.

Study Skills

I currently work with 6th grade students in a turnaround school setting. Here, we have to teach students study skills as they come to us with little to no organization or study skills at all. I have been working with middle school students in this area for 3 years.
