About Carole


Bio

As a lifelong teacher, tutor & trainer, I'm passionate about helping students of all ages (we're never too old to stop learning!) achieve their goals. Instilling confidence is critical in learning, and through countless hours working 1:1 with students, I've come to learn teaching "people" is as important as teaching "subjects".

Parents looking for a tutor for their children will find I'm a certified teacher, well-educated and very experienced. I have a strong background in classical studies,...

As a lifelong teacher, tutor & trainer, I'm passionate about helping students of all ages (we're never too old to stop learning!) achieve their goals. Instilling confidence is critical in learning, and through countless hours working 1:1 with students, I've come to learn teaching "people" is as important as teaching "subjects".

Parents looking for a tutor for their children will find I'm a certified teacher, well-educated and very experienced. I have a strong background in classical studies, having graduated from the prestigious Girls' Latin School (Boston). At an early age, I reaped the benefits of outstanding preparation, study habits and knowledge. I find this background extremely helpful when I tutor students who need to prepare for standardized tests like the SAT, ACT, ISEE, SSAT, and HSPT. Beyond GLS, I graduated Magna Cum Laude, with a double major (BS in Education/Sociology), from University of Massachusetts, Amherst.

After teaching elementary school children in the classroom for 5 years, I spent the next 10 working 1:1 with some of the bravest students ever... youngsters at the Ronald McDonald House & Children's Hospital. Through these touching experiences, I truly saw the merits of setting individualized (yet realistic) goals. In the 10 years since my rewarding time at Children's, I've found working with middle school & high school students on standardized test prep, and overall subjects (math, grammar, writing especially) to be equally rewarding.

A word to my future students: your success is my success! While working with me, you'll find a non-judgmental, caring, compassionate advocate & coach who will work tirelessly to help you achieve your goals. I'll work to get the most out of your potential, and help you learn in the ways best suited for your style & temperament. Together, I promise you, learning can become rewarding no matter how stressful it may have been at times in the past!

Carole was punctual for all sessions. She was thoughtful, thorough, and kept my son focused during his HSPT prep sessions. Most importantly she exposed him to the test format and tips for all sections.

Michael, 7 lessons with Carole
Tutor responded:

I thoroughly enjoyed my sessions with Sam! He is a terrific student who focused on all my lessons. I wish him the best in whatever high school he attends. He will be an asset there! It was a pleasure to work with his family also.

Knowledgeable Tutor

She is very good at explaining things and is very encouraging! Very positive in the way she teaches, doesn't look down upon the students. I definitely recommend for SATs!

Maggie, 4 lessons with Carole
Tutor responded:

Thanks for the feedback, Maggie. I enjoy working with you on SAT strategies and practice tests!

ISEE Test Prep

Carole did a great job of keeping my daughter at ease and explaining how the test worked. She gave great tips for making studying more manageable.

Adam, 14 lessons with Carole
Tutor responded:

It has been my pleasure to work with your daughter! She's really focused on her first ISEE!

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Carole is very personable and connected well with my 11-year-old son. She communicated the importance of the ISEE and studying regularly up until the test date. I appreciate her approach and think her support will have a positive impact on my son's test performance.

Shannon, 7 lessons with Carole
Tutor responded:

It is my pleasure to work with an intelligent student as Dane and his supportive family!

Excellent tutor!

Carole has been working with my daughter on SAT prep for a couple of weeks now. She is a wealth of knowledge in this area and has shared many helpful tips and tricks. She is very patient and breaks things down in a way that is comprehensible. I feel confident that my daughter will excel on test day. I highly recommend Carole!

Cari-Ann, 5 lessons with Carole
Tutor responded:

Thanks so much for taking the time to validate my "mission", Cari-Ann. Your daughter is a pleasure to work with!

If you want an awesome & knowledgeable tutor- look no further!

Carole is a very kind, patient, & knowledgeable tutor. She worked with me on 7/15/16- set up for my business chart of accounts in Quickbooks Simple Start. She also, took the time to explain various concepts & lingo of accounting, that she felt would be both necessary & helpful to my understanding the numbers. Prior to working with Carole, I had hired an expensive Quickbooks Pro-that neglected to TEACH & explain the things that Carole took the time to do working with the "pro" was a huge waste of my time & money. I am so thankful that, I found Carole. I feel confident & hopeful that, I will be able to keep good financial records now! So, if you need a knowledgeable & smart tutor- contact Carole! Thanks Again for all your help.

Kim, 1 lesson with Carole
Tutor responded:

Kim, It was my pleasure to educate a businesswoman who wants to be well-versed in the accounting concepts behind the numbers. Savvy business owners need the knowledge. Kudos to you for recognizing this fact. I'm sure you will do well in the future!

Reviewed Quickbooks Pro 2015

Carole taught me about shortcuts that I didn't know anything about as well as helping me understand certain transaction in my system with cash on hand, discrepancies, owners draw. payroll and more. She was a pleasure to work with, thank you Carole.

Kevin, 1 lesson with Carole
Tutor responded:

I appreciate the opportunity to work with QB users in enhancing understanding, it was equally my pleasure to work with your colleague. She had a keen attention to detail and learned quickly! Good luck, in the future.

Excellent

Carole was EXCELLENT and was very up-front and honest and even suggested my son didn't need her on a regular basis, but that we would stay connected and she will come back when we think he needs it. We plan to work with Carole to prepare our son for taking private school entrance exams as well. The best part was that our son really liked her as well.

Laura, 2 lessons with Carole
Tutor responded:

I thoroughly enjoyed meeting Jack (and you!) He's a terrific student who will do well. I look forward to working with him (if needed) on his pre-algebra and definitely prepping him for private school entrance exams.

Patient, accommodating, friendly, most of all knowledgable

Carole has worked with our son for the last month in getting him ready for the HSPT. He is much more confident than he was a month ago. Carole also has been very accomodating to our schedule. I highly recommend her for your child.

I really enjoyed working with Brady. He is a polite young man who presents well. Good luck with all his future goals!
