Bio

Don't get behind this year, get on top of the learning curve and earn better grades. As little as twice a week tutoring can help any student make better progress and be more engaged.

Don't get behind this year, get on top of the learning curve and earn better grades. As little as twice a week tutoring can help any student make better progress and be more engaged.

Are YOU homeschooling this year due to COVID-19? I'm here to help you in many ways. I can help you develop a curriculum for you student(s), I have helped many parents understand how homeschooling is much different than going to a school classroom. Together we can develop tasks, activities, and projects to help keep your student engaged in learing and making progress.

LEARN to be a life-long-learner. DEVELOP your student's full potential!

I have 30 years K-12 teaching experience from small home schools to public schools and special education classrooms. I can help students excel. Students do not want the same experience from tutoring they get from school, so most sessions stress differentiated learning activities, games, and fun educational challenges! We work on learning about our "learning styles"; visual, auditory, tactile, kinesthetic, social, interpersonal, intra-personal, and more. The student is mentored to develop study skills which work well for them and are coached to develop regular study habits that serve them throughout life. I specialize in the LANGUAGE ARTS; reading, writing, editing, and public speaking, also technology, history, science and STEAM classes, and career development.

I also have unique and fun ways to teach LANGUAGE ARTS and MATH and to prepare for TESTS; i.e., deal with testing anxieties that keep students from doing their best and coach them to prepare well for the event. I help students to study for and complete GED diplomas, also to get ready for SAT, ACT, GRE, and other higher education testing.

I welcome parents and students to contact me with their needs and desires for TUTORING K-12 and ESL students in Nuevo, Hemet, San Jacinto and the Inland Empire community. Prepare to make this your best school year ever!

Experienced, knowledgeable, and patient instructor

We have completed two sessions with Carmen. She is very patient in trying to get to know my son who is on the spectrum. I believe Carmen handled him quite well. She is very experienced and great to work it. We are looking forward to more sessions with her. We highly recommend Carmen for your tutoring needs.

We love Carmen!

Carmen is the best. She is so patient, kind and talks to my daughter with special needs in such a relaxed manner she can’t help but engage and learn! My daughter looks forward to her lessons, and she is not always so enthusiastic so it’s definitely Carmen and her teaching style, Highly recommended.!

Oh so patient!

Carmen has all the patience I wish I had. My daughter is a talker and Carmen veers her gently back to the topic while making her feel heard and important. She’s dedicated and approaches each student as an individual.
