About Carla

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.

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.

Grammar

I hold a Missouri teaching certificate in English. I have taught high school courses in Basic Composition. I authored books on Effective Communication.

Latin

For the past four years, I have taught Latin online to students of all ages. I have traveled to Italy a number of times to experience the beauty of the classics first hand. While teaching in award-winning Latin Grammar school, I coached a state championship Certamen Team.

Literature

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.

Public Speaking

I have a Missourit Lifetime certification in Speech / Theater K-12. I have coached Missouri state policy debate championship teams. I am a NFL Diamond Key Coach.

Vocabulary

My love of Latin is an integral part of my fascination with vocabulary. I love watching students learn how to recognize word meanings via a knowledge of Latin. I am an avid puzzler and love the challenge of the NY Times Puzzles.

Writing

I taught freshman composition for a number of years prior to retiring. I have written and published two texts. Communication Skills in the Work Place and Delegation for Women. I have conducted a variety of in-service sessions for educators and business people as well.
