About Carrie

I was previously a high school math teacher for five years but am now a stay at home mom. I believe (and have been told) that I do a good job of breaking down difficult concepts and making them easy to understand. I really enjoy being able to work one-on-one with students and have had a lot of success so far. I am a professional, friendly, patient tutor and even though I have a strong math background, I still remember and understand what it feels like to struggle in the subject. I think this is what helps me simplify the material for my students. I have my own copies of the books for Algebra 1 & 2 in the Kalamazoo/Portage area and spend quite a bit of time preparing before each session in order to make the most of our time together. I also stay in regular contact with my student's teachers in order to keep myself, and my students on track with their homework/test schedules. I am available week nights after 6:30 at the Portage Library and also on Sunday evenings if needed. I was previously a high school math teacher for five years but am now a stay at home mom.

Passionate Tutor

Carrie has been a great resource in building back my son's confidence in math. She is warm, caring, patient and stays on top of upcoming assignments and tests. I was very impressed! We have seen great improvement and highly recommend her as a tutor.
