I am a retired mathematics teacher who is now tutoring since I really missed sharing my knowledge of math with others. I taught 8 years at the middle school level, 27 years at the high school level (including Algebra 1 and 2, Geometry, Trigonometry, and Discrete Math-which is now called Finite Math). While teaching high school, I also taught night classes at the college level, where I taught all types of Algebra classes and Linear Programming. I have been working as a high school/college math tutor since 2011.
Learning math in a one-to-one situation is ideal. If the student doesn't understand something I explained, I stop and try a different approach. After teaching for 35 years, I know several ways to explain most concepts.
I am very patient, caring, and have an intrinsic desire to help my students achieve success in their math classes.
Please give me a try,

We were at our wit's end on how to help our daughter pass Geometry. Traditional classroom instruction wasn't working. We tried other tutors throughout the school year but they didn't help her. Finally, as a last resort, we decided to try online summer courses with help from a WyzAnt tutor. Carol has been amazing! She's thorough, patient and caring. With her help, our daughter is finally "getting it" and her grades have improved dramatically. We like Carol so much we want her to continue tutoring our daughter through this coming school year. We wish we would have known about her sooner!
Thank you so much! What great feedback! Nonetheless, your daughter definitely deserves part of the credit. She is very easy to work with and listens to my instructions. I appreciate you hiring me and being able to meet your family, even the pets.
Kelly said, she cant believe how much better she feels about geometry after one session. She thinks she will do well on today's quiz! Kelly is excited about getting tutored by Carol and wishes she was her math teacher.
What a sweetheart! Thank you so much for your response, Kelly.
We needed someone to help review Algebra II with our daughter to make sure she didn't miss anything when we moved from one state to another. Carol was perfect! Thanks!
Carol was on time and waiting for us. Zoie really enjoyed working with Carol and felt very comfortable. Carol was very helpful.
We have been trying to find someone to help my son with his algebra, someone that could explain the process and help with step by step instruction! We have found that with Carole H. , she has provided notes for my son to take with him so he can practice what he has learned. We are very pleased after just three sessions. Much improvement.
Thank you so much, Jackie, for taking the time to provide feedback for me. It is very appreciated.
Carol isn't just a great tutor (and she's definitely THAT), she's also won the heart of my 16 year old daughter. I appreciate the way she's made an effort to find their common interests. In only a few weeks, our teen is getting much less apprehensive about doing the math. What a relief!
Thank you so much, Pam, for your very kind comments. I really appreciate your taking the time to provide feedback for me.
Thank you so much for spending time with our son on Friday and assisting him with his math! I'm confident (and he is too) that he will be successful on his test tomorrow. We will be contacting you in the future if the need arises again.
Well, I enjoyed working with Blake and hope he did well on his test.
Carol is patient and willing to teach different processes for equation resolution. She has also been very flexible with scheduling and locations.
Review title says it all. I wish all my professors were like Carol! I was a college student that was struggling with Trig, with only a total of 8 one-hour sessions, Carol helped me pass Trig with a 97% A. She is simply amazing! Thank you so much Carol!!!
We think Carol spent quality time with our son to help explain the material so that he can progress in Algebra 2.
Thank you so much for your kind review. I really appreciate your taking the time to submit a review.
Carol is wonderful! 5 stars without a doubt. She is so friendly, patient, and encouraging, and i love getting the feedback on how my daughter is progressing. I am grateful that we found someone so wonderful who can help my daughter find success in Algebra 2!
My daughter struggles with Math yet needs a higher level Math class to apply to her college of choice. Carol has been pleasant and so very helpful in making sure she helps my daughter at her pace. Looking forward to future help in her Pre-Calculus class.
Thank you so much for your review. That was so nice of you.
We reviewed basic math concepts to ensure a solid base. She is willing to work with you from a place of understanding and empathy. I have gained confidence in myself since working with Carol.
We are studying algebra 1 with Carol in preparation for next years academic performance. Carol has been extremely patient and accommodating .
Stephanie, Thank you so much for your kind feedback; I really appreciate it.
I just wanted to let you know that our son's current grade in his Pre-Calculus class is an A+! Thank you for all of the help.
I am so happy for Cory. Thanks for sharing his success with me.
My daughter and I just loved Carol! She explained things in a way that my daughter understood. The hour with my daughter was very organized and well thought out! Carol was great and I highly recommend her!
Carol is clearly an experienced high school math teacher. She is able to break down difficult concepts into easily understood lessons. She is patient and kind. My daughter's performance in class has increased markedly since Carol started tutoring her. I highly recommend Carol to any student who needs assistance with math concepts.
Thank you so much for your kind review. However, part of the credit definitely belongs to your daughter. She is extremely educable and a delight to tutor.
My daughter has been very pleased with Carol's ability to explain precalculus clearly to her. She has been much more confident since working with Carol and is doing better in class.
Thank you, Meg, for your kind feedback. That was really nice of you to write that for me. Carol
My daughter is very happy with Carol's teaching techniques. She is very nice, patient and extremely knowledgeable. I definitely recommend her.
Thank you so much for your feedback, Marie. That was so nice of you; I really appreciate it.
Carol, has been a great tutor. I wish we had more time where she could explain the process and the reason(s) why we are doing this process. However, she has been a wonderful help in guiding my through my homework lessons.
I wouldn't know what to do without her...She has been WONDERFUL to have!
Cathie, thank you so much. That was so nice of you to comment on my tutoring; I really appreciate your kind words.
I contacted Carol to set up tutoring for my daughter, who wanted someone to help her prepare for her geometry final. I emailed Carol a couple of months prior to finals, and she responded to my request immediately. She stayed in contact with me over the next couple of months. She asked questions that would give her an idea of how my daughter learned best. Carol worked with my daughter to set up a schedule for tutoring. She said that Carol was patient and made things easy to understand. We give Carol 5 stars out of 5, and would recommend her to anyone needing a math tutor!!!
Thank you so much for the wonderful recommendation you sent to Wyzant. It was so nice of you to take time to do that for me. If Alianne ever needs math tutoring again, I would love to help her.
Carol very kindly agreed to meet with my daughter and help her on very short notice. My daughter had let herself get behind in maths, until finals time came around. Carol met with her just a couple days'notice. Carol helped my daughter understand her maths problems (International Baccalaureate mid level) and now she feels ready to take her finals. We'll use Carol again with no hesitation.
Carol is a great tutor and not only is she very knowledgeable, but she's flexible with her time. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing assistance with algebra.
During graduate school I wrote a 400 page paper about teaching geometry at the secondary level. Central Michigan University used it as a teaching tool for their future math teachers.
I have taught my middle school, high school, and college math classes for 35 years. I have both a bachelor's degree and master's degree in mathematics.
