About Carol

Hello! I am a professional writer with over fifteen years of experience in writing, editing, publishing, and marketing. I have taught various subjects to business professionals and students including English pronunciation, grammar, spelling, composition, e-mail/letter writing, MS Office and basic computer and keyboarding skills. I'm familiar with MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Scrivener, InDesign, FileMaker Pro, PhotoShop, GarageBand, blog and website design.

I received my MFA in Creative Writing in August of 2009 and I also have a B.S. in Technical Communications. I've worked in both corporate and educational environments. My students describe me as kind but challenging. I like to teach others by focusing on their personal style of learning and how they can relate what they know to the subject matter.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Adobe InDesign

I've been working with Adobe InDesign (formerly PageMaker) for a number of years. I've used the software to put together workshop materials for a psychological testing company. I've also used it extensively for my own personal newsletters, Christmas cards, flyers and business cards.

Bible Studies

I've read the Bible and participated in Bible Studies for most of my life. I've been able to help college students with their comprehension of Bible passages and related readings.

ESL/ESOL

I have completed the 12-hour ESL training for tutors through the Minnesota Literacy Council and worked with several ESL students to improve their pronunciation, reading, grammar, spelling and writing skills.

Macintosh

I've been working with Macintosh computers for over twenty years. I used to sell Macintosh software and I'm familiar with keyboard functions, shortcuts, and have extensive experience with Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, FileMaker Pro, PageMaker, GarageBand, itunes, Microsoft Mail, iPhoto and Safari. I currently use Mac OS X on a MacBook laptop.

Writing

I have many years of experience coaching people with their writing assignments and projects.
