About Carissa


Bio

I am a DePaul University graduate and have worked in the accounting and finance industry since graduating in 2006. I am a member of the Golden Key International Honors Society (DePaul University), Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society (Triton College), and the National Honor Society (Fenwick High School). I have made the Dean's list for grades throughout High School and College. I have helped peers, friends, and family with tutoring needs since high school.

I am a DePaul University graduate and have worked in the accounting and finance industry since graduating in 2006. I am a member of the Golden Key International Honors Society (DePaul University), Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society (Triton College), and the National Honor Society (Fenwick High School). I have made the Dean's list for grades throughout High School and College. I have helped peers, friends, and family with tutoring needs since high school.

I volunteered throughout High School at Hephzibah Children's Association, a group home for DCFS kids, where I helped the children with homework after school as well as being a Big Sister to two children. Once I was old enough to work there, they hired me on as a child care worker where I helped the kids with school work and learning even more. This was my most rewarding job to date as it's truly a wonderful experience to help others grow and gain the confidence needed to succeed in life. From this experience I have learned to adapt my teaching style to best suit the way each student learns, as we all learn differently. I like to set smaller goals, that strengthen confidence, on the way to the main goal. I love helping people better themselves to achieve their goals.

I have a 5 year old son in kindergarten who has tested into the advanced math classes and is learning to read and write very quickly. We do lots of activities at home that have helped him advance and it doesn't seem like school work, it seems more like fun play. I regularly volunteer at his school and have passed the background and fingerprinting checks required in order to do this.

I have applied for my substitute teaching license in order to help out the schools in my district when needed.

If you are looking for tutoring help, look no further. I would be honored to aid in whatever endeavor you are currently undertaking to help you be as successful as possible.
