About Carolyn

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! I am a retired French and Spanish teacher. I am missing my students and wanting to stay active in the teaching field by tutoring.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

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.
