I have been teaching High School math for over 20 years. The courses I have taught include the regular and honors level of Algebra 1, Geometry and Algebra 2 as well Probability and Statistics. Additionally I have
taught ACT and SAT review classes for several years and I have worked in the math tutoring lab at my school for the last 8 years.

I love helping students improve their math skills, confidence and enjoyment of math. I am very skilled at explaining the steps needed to work out math problems and helping students form connections between math concepts. My strategy is to use a scaffolding approach to ensure that my client understands the basic concepts and then build up the complexity as appropriate.

During my time on Wyzant, I have helped students with their homework, reviewed with them to improve their scores on quizzes and tests, been the "classroom teacher" for home-schooled students, prepared students for math placement exams as well as the ACT and SAT, and helped them improve their overall math skills.

My favorite thing about Wyzant is that it is a mutually beneficial experience for my students as well as myself. If a student chooses to work with me, I know that our time together is valuable to them, otherwise they could choose to try another tutor. I get to walk away at the end of a session knowing that I made a difference, which is what drew me to teaching in the first place.

Attentive and patient tutor

I hired Carolyn to help my daughter prepare for a college math assessment. I was so very impressed by her teaching methods and her incredible patience during each lesson. It is evident she is a highly seasoned teacher and I would strongly recommend her if your student requires that extra level of attention.

Deborah, 4 lessons with Carolyn

great teacher

I just had my first tutoring session with Carolyn and i have nothing but good things to say! I’ve never understood math and have always struggled and just in this one lesson alone i learned so much from her! I’m hopeful with continuing lessons with her i will be prepared to take my placement test!(:
