About Cara

My fondness of tutoring began when I began working for Western Carolina University’s Writing and Learning Commons as a Writing Fellow. I worked with a group of 20 college students on their writing over the course of the year. That job, along with an internship that I had where I worked with Asheville youth, ages 10-21, on their creative writing and public speaking skills, convinced me to transfer to UNC Asheville and start working towards my license to teach 6-12 language arts students. I've felt more fulfilled ever since.

My primary area of specialty is poetry. However, I also have bountiful experience in helping students to enhance their skills in writing. My main goal is to make sure that I act as a facilitator – introducing students to skillsets and methods in order to help them learn to be independent critical thinkers and to help them build their confidence as both learners and writers. I do not believe in providing students with the answers. Instead, I prefer to act as a guide who helps students to navigate their way to obtaining knowledge themselves.

As the Diversity and Equity Intern for UNC Asheville's Center for Diversity Education, I have a strong commitment to learning how I can effectively communicate and work with people from diverse backgrounds in order to develop positive student-teacher relationships that will allow me to help enhance my students' learning.

I do my best to remain flexible, though, as a college student, I have a fixed schedule during the fall and spring. I have a 24-hour cancellation policy.

While I am open to whatever parents and students want and need, I do prefer to travel to quiet and public spaces such as libraries and coffee shops. My top priority is to make sure that students and their parents feel comfortable.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you to become the confident and independent student that I know you have the potential to be!
