Hello my name is Carolyn L. and I have a sincere passion for teaching and learning. Therefore as a teacher I use my energy and love for English and history to inspire my students to enjoy the learning process as much as I do. I have enjoyed success in the area of English Language Arts and use creativity to engage the students I teach. I focus my tutoring to reading, writing, English, and all areas of history and social studies.

I am a certified teacher specializing in English, reading and writing. I also hold a certification in the area of history and can tutor these classes as I hold degrees in both English and history. I have been teaching for more than ten years and have had success with the rigors of standardized testing, which include the Georgia Writing Test as well as End of Course assessments and the Georgia Milestone Assessment. I have a proven success record with students who received tutoring at least twice a week.

I also have a Masters Degree in Special Education and have provided special education services and teaching to students with disabilities. Currently I am writing my dissertation and tutoring keeps me sharp as I am in the classroom on a part-time basis.

Public Speaking

Public Speaking

I have had five years tutoring public speaking, with students ranging from grades 9-11. Public speaking is a part of the Language Arts curriculum and mastery of the skill is very important. I began tutoring speaking classes to help my students feel more comfortable as they present their speeches in class. I taught my students how to relax and began with a joke or related story. As well as to remember to be on the same level with the audience and pace the speech so that it doesn't tend to sound rushed. As a tutor I enjoy motivating students to work hard in maintaining and developing their abilities in verbal communication skills, as this is a vital element in a successful public speaker.

Excellent ASL tutor!

Carolyn knows ASL very well and has many years of experience within Deaf communities. She is patient and has great ways to explain the signs for new vocabulary so that I will remember them.

Donna, 10 lessons with Carolyn

Great first session

After spending an hour with my son she was quickly able to diagnose the issue and begin working on it, look forward to more sessions with her and my son and seeing the improvements.

Nancy, 26 lessons with Carolyn

Very patient and knowledgeable

She was very patient with my son during his evaluation. She made it very fun and exciting as he is only 4 years old. See you again this Saturday.

Robin, 1 lesson with Carolyn

first session went well

Ms. Carolyn came for my daughter's first session and it went well. My daughter is usually not attentive when I'm helping her with school work, but Ms. Carolyn had all her attention. My daughter sat with Ms. Carolyn and went over numbers, and letters. Ms. Carolyn had strategies, and lots of patience. I'm very satisfied with her session. Ms. Carolyn will be back next Saturday. Thanks Ms. Carolyn

Deshia, 2 lessons with Carolyn

Nekissta, 7 lessons with Carolyn

Awesome educator and contributor in the field of Education and in the lives of children

Miss Carolyn is very patient, kind, and genuine in her love for education and teaching children. My nephew lights up when he see her she is awesome in what she does and we are so grateful for her hard work and dedication. My nephew is so excited about reading, grammar, and Lang. Arts! She has opened a whole new world of learning for him! Thank you so much!

Jocelyn, 4 lessons with Carolyn

Very patient and knowledgeable!

Miss Caroline is a great teacher. I have seen a big in difference in my son's approach to writing and his comprehension skills. She does great with him. She is able to get him focused while teaching him study skills and how to reduce distractions.

Roxanne, 34 lessons with Carolyn

Professional and personable

I found Carolyn B. and her style refreshing and suitable for my grandson. She jumped right in and he was engaged the entire time. It is an added plus that she happens to be left-handed just like him and better suited, in my opinion, to. assist him in his handwriting journey. If today was any indication of what is ahead, I stand grateful that she answered despite her full schedule. I am confident that this will be a great experience for my grandson - time and money WELL-spent.

Acquinette, 3 lessons with Carolyn

Patient and positive tutor

My son's first tutoring lesson with Carolyn went very well! My son truly enjoyed working with her. She is very patient and positive, but most importantly she has given me a lot of hope. I now feel that I can breathe more easily. She is the only one who has helped me understand my son's IEP reports! For my family Carolyn has been an angel.

Este, 4 lessons with Carolyn
