About Carla


Bio

I discovered school at the age of six and have been involved with schools ever since then. I have taught almost every grade from kindergarten through college. I am certified to teach Latin, English, Speech, Debate, and Theater. Each student is a unique individual (regardless of their age).

I discovered school at the age of six and have been involved with schools ever since then. I have taught almost every grade from kindergarten through college. I am certified to teach Latin, English, Speech, Debate, and Theater. Each student is a unique individual (regardless of their age).

Education is the door to opportunity. As the teacher, I am your "guide on the side." I not only share content knowledge; I try to spark the love of learning in each student. There are as many different learning styles as there are learners. I offer a variety of strategies such as online drills, screencasts, videos, songs, artwork, etc to help students progress in their subject.

I enjoy theater of all sorts. I live in the Midwest with my black pug, Gracie. I like to travel. Yes, I have been to Rome! I was there this past summer. I have twin daughters who are married and homes of their own in the Midwest. I am "Grammy" to three-year-old triplets Nate, Jake, and Blake and their two year old cousin, Alex.

I am enjoying teaching and tutoring on a part-time basis. I look forward to working with you soon.

Literature is the gateway to anywhere you might want to go. I started reading in the first grade and have not stopped. I love my e-reader, but nothing compares with the thrill of holding a brand new book and turning those first few pages.

Knowledgable and patient tutor

My son has met with Carla twice and she is really helping him to understand the writing process. She is also working with him on oral communication. She is using a variety of tools and focuses the lessons on topics that he is interested in.

Great teacher

Carla is a great teacher who made a significant effort in identifying resources required to help my son. Quite satisfied with her coaching so far.

Patient, Dedicated. Can work with children with learning differences.

Carla, a retired teacher, that has a spirit that is not retired and has an unbelievable will to help children to learn. She has been the tutor of my son for almost 2 years. My son is within the autistic spectrum. Carla works well with him. She doesn't spend all her time working through homework assignments. She practices the art of learning. She believes that if you can understand the method and the steps that it takes to learn - then you can tackle anything. This has made my son successful because he is learning HOW to solve problems and not just do homework. He has tremendous respect for Carla. Carla is valuable. She's very dedicated, patient and committed. Additionally, your child will learn skills that he/she will carry him through life. Skills that will help him with his future studies and employment. This is not just a tutor, this is a Life Coach!

Magna Magistra! An Extraordinary Tutor!

Patient, cooperative, and caring. Three of the most essential traits of a tutor. Carla is helping me conquer some of Latin's hardest hurdles. In addition to expanding my knowledge, she bolsters my confidence in my ability to understand, and translate Latin. She's always available if you need help, and is flexible if there is a schedule change!
