About Carolyn


Bio

I have 15 years experience tutoring, teaching and mentoring. I live in Fair Lawn, NJ and in Feb 2011 became a full time mother of twin girls. I am looking for new students. Currently I predominantly tutor math test prep, including both the SAT, SAT2 and the ACT, but have extensive experience tutoring any level of math from elementary school to college courses, and especially love probability/statistics, calculus, and discrete mathematics.

I have 15 years experience tutoring, teaching and mentoring. I live in Fair Lawn, NJ and in Feb 2011 became a full time mother of twin girls. I am looking for new students. Currently I predominantly tutor math test prep, including both the SAT, SAT2 and the ACT, but have extensive experience tutoring any level of math from elementary school to college courses, and especially love probability/statistics, calculus, and discrete mathematics.
I prefer to take on students for an extended amount of time, it takes time to digest new learning and it's hard to fit too much into one session. But I have done one time sessions, it depends on the subject how successful that might be.
I love tutoring. I really connect with my students and they become a part of my family. Teaching is so much more than the material, and I really enjoy the opportunity to positively impact other's lives.
