About Carol

I live in northern NH with my husband of 30 years and our 18 year old daughter. I have a bachelor degree in elementary education and I enjoy working with children and helping them overcome learning issues. I have raised a daughter with a learning/developmental disability and have worked with many students of varying abilities from gifted to severely autistic. I believe that every child can learn. I have worked as a substitute teacher and a paraprofessional since 2009, and I am a certified flight instructor (26 years) and commercial pilot.

I am currently employed as a paraprofessional working with students with disabilities at a NH elementary school, and I provide homework support for the after school program. I am a certified paraprofessional II. I am patient and knowledgeable in math, writing and reading skill areas and can help students improve their test scores. I enjoy staying informed about the latest in teaching techniques and educational technology.

In addition to teaching I enjoy flying, bicycling, hiking, sewing and trying out new recipes on my always-willing family.

I would love to work with your child and help him/her discover a lifelong love of learning.

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.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I am currently working in the Life Skills classroom at an elementary school. I have been working with students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) for 2 years now. I am trained in the use of assistive technology communication devices, some American Sign Language, and PECS (picture exchange communication system).

I use few words with ASD students as it can be difficult for them to process spoken language. I know how to focus their attention using both signals and timers to limit work times and break times. I believe in using frequent breaks to allow processing time and repetition of lessons to progressively achieve small steps toward goals.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been a substitute teacher and paraprofessional since 2009. I have worked as a long term substitute in a second grade classroom teaching all subjects including math, science, reading and writing. I have worked with students in grades K through 12, but my primary interest is in grades K-5.

In 2012-2013 I worked with the SPED program to provide reading and math support for struggling students. I had a 5th grade math group and we worked mostly with fractions and word problems. I am experienced in working with manipulatives to increase understanding in math. I have the patience to work with reluctant learners.

I have worked with the Edmark, Great Leaps and Spire reading programs for struggling readers. I am familiar with DIBELS and EL-IGDI assessments and scoring procedures.
I have also been working with the Life Skills program for two years and I am familiar with portfolio progress documentation. I believe I can be effective as a tutor for K-6 core subject instruction.
