Illinois College (French and history)
Middlebury College, Middlebury VT (Master's)
I am a retired French and Spanish teacher. I am missing my students and wanting to stay active in the teaching field by tutoring. I lived in Paris and studied at the Sorbonne. I have a master's degree in French. I led 10 student trips abroad during my 35 years of teaching. I am an expert at breaking it down to make it understandable and FUN! I won a prize for excellence in teaching at my high school as well as the 2010 Chapter prize from the Chicago American Association of French Teachers, Chicago chapter. I am dependable, outgoing, and I have gotten very good results with my tutoring students! I have worked with all ages but I do have a special love for the high school level. I know exactly what they need to know and how to help!

She is very thorough. Genuine and sincere teacher. Connects with the students. Works very hard with the students. I am very glad we found her to teach my son. French is a tough language to learn, she made it very easy for my son.
Carolyn is a great tutor for a variety of subjects. She is very accommodating with scheduling and has helped my son tremendously with his school work and studying for finals.
Carolyn is making a huge impact on my daughter's confidence with French and I can see the immediate impact on her grade. Thank you!
Carolyn is an experienced French tutor that connected extremely well with our 16 year old son. She was able to provide in depth tutoring for almost an entire semester of work that we had missed. She was always well prepared, brought supplemental materials and was very encouraging throughout the sessions with our son. We highly recommend working with Carolyn!
We reviewed some verbs, worked on pronunciation and reading. She helped be a lot on my pronunciation on some french verbs
Ms. D. was very patient with my young child. She worked with him at the right pace and he felt very comfortable with her. She also loves the subjects she teaches and that matters a lot when you are a teacher. Overall, it was a very positive experience.
Madame Carolyn is an excellent French tutor. She is very easy to work with. She was able to quickly understand my daughter's current knowledge of French and start building from there. My daughter likes that she is very demonstrative when trying to get her to understand a word, phrase, or sentence. If she still doesn't understand then Madame Carolyn will then write the word down. With Madame Carolyn's many years of teaching experience, she has ability to understand how a student learns best. We are happy we found her!
Carolyn D. provided excellent assistance to me in our lessons and was a very patient person in trying to get me to speak my thoughts in French as much as possible. She provided me some materials to work with on my studies and went out of her way to review them with me. I am glad I was able to work with her.
I picked Madame Carolyn to help my daughter continue French learning, since the new school she transferred to doesn't offer French classes. Madame Carolyn has been teaching my daughter French class once a week for over a year now. She is an amazing teacher who knows how to motivate her student to learn and make learning a lot of fun too. As the result, the event my daughter is looking forward to the most each week is her French class with Madame Carolyn. Only Madame Carolyn can make such a nice difference in learning through her unique teaching style, passion in education and patience to her students.
Just wanted to thank you for your efforts with our son in his quest to pass French! At Thanksgiving time, he was close to failing the class. With your help, he was able to pull a B on his final, giving him a C in the class. Hallelujah! We never thought we'd be so excited about a C! We are so proud of him and thankful we found you!
Carolyn has been an excellent tutor! My daughter is done with French and she is very sad that she will no longer be working with Carolyn! She has been so patient and encouraging with my daughter. My daughter looked forward to her tutoring sessions. I am so grateful to Carolyn and her wonderful, encouraging and delightful approach to working with my daughter! I will miss her very much! I would definitely give her 5 stars and more!!!
She is very professional and has thorough knowledge of Spanish, English and History subjects. We are very happy- she has really helped my daughter in getting good grades after her help in tutoring.
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 am a retired high school teacher. I have helped students I tutor improve their English grammar, vocabulary and writing.
I have 36 years experience as a high school teacher! I lived in Paris and studied at the Sorbonne.
I studied Spanish at Northeastern Il U and taught Spanish at East Leyden HS. I have successfully tutored Spanish students before through WyzAnt.
