About Carol

I am a long-time, passionate teacher, with experience from middle and secondary school to college and graduate level teaching. I'm also a writing coach and learning mentor offering many tools to jumpstart better study and writing habits, and to support student learning. I respect my students and their process, and I know how to make the materials they need to master fresh, accessible and interesting. I'm trained in working with students with learning disabilities as well, and whether you experience those challenges or not, I can help you find strategies to improve your studying and learning. I have an MA in English from Boston University, and an interdisciplinary Communications Ph.D. from Northwestern University. I've been teaching for 30 years, and I am currently an adjunct in two blended learning programs. I see the way my students struggle, and I know how to make their lives easier! Let's find out how I can help you!

I'm offering my services as a tutor because I love one-on-one teaching, and I'm looking for a way to make a difference in people's lives, helping them learn what they need to learn in order to get ahead. I'm most interested in working with high school students and older. A special shout-out: If you're an adult learner re-entering the classroom, or struggling with the isolation of online programs, consider contacting me to ease your transition and help you get up to speed. My specialities are: English (literature and writing - creative and expository), the arts (film, multi-media and theater) the Social Sciences (Sociology, Anthropology and Psychology), and Business (Negotiation, Branding, Public Speaking, Marketing and other Communication-focused coursework). In my career, I've taught all of these, and I can help you improve your comprehension, your grades, and your skills.

Approved subjects

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.

Anthropology

I received a Ph.D. in Performance Studies from Northwestern University, with a specialization in Anthropology and Ethnography.

Film

I was a theatre and film critic for 15 years in Philadelphia and Chicago (Philadelphia Weekly and the Chicago Reader), and I studied film adaptation at Northwestern University for my Ph.D.

Marketing

I have a Communications degree from Northwestern University, and taught marketing and biz communication at University of Northern Virginia, both in the US and in China.

Public Speaking

I have studied theatre and performance, as well as business communication, have a degree in writing (MA), and am an experienced public speaker. I can work with students on creating a powerful speech, understanding what makes a speech powerful, and practicing effective speech making.

Social Studies

I have an interdisciplinary cultural studies degree, which trained me to analyze history and social movements. Social studies is the intersection of these things, and I can help students master the materials more deeply and satisfyingly.

Sociology

I have training in sociology from Northwestern University in Evanston, IL.

Theatre

I am a playwright, director, dramaturg, and performer. I taught theatre for 10 years in universities, taught workshops for middle and high school students, and had a full career as a theatre critic.

Writing

I have an MA in writing from Boston University, and have taught writing and research skills at Mitchell College and the University of Maryland. I love teaching writing, and I believe everyone can improve their writing and even find the joy in the writing process!
