About Carol

I currently work in Elizabeth, NJ as a 6th grade ELA teacher. I have been with Elizabeth for the past 13 years and have taught Pre-k, 3rd grade and ELA in all three middle grades. I have lived on Old Bridge since I was 12. I have two children going through the Old Bridge School system. My husband is also a teacher in Elizabeth and teaches Middle School Math, 8th grade Algebra. After working in Elizabeth for 8 years I decided to go for Masters. I enrolled in Grand Canyon University and earned my degree in Educational Leadership. At some point this will allow me to pursue a career as an administrator which is my ultimate goal.

I have been working with kids most of my life. Starting as a babysitter, working in camp as a counselor, then moving onto working and then running a daycare. I then moved onto public school. Besides teaching and working with students during the day, I have also spent time tutoring and helping students out who are struggling with their daily assignments. I also volunteer as the head of our towns softball league, as well as being the PTA President of my younger daughters school, and on the PTA board for my older daughters school. I like to stay involved. I feel that learning where the students are struggling allows me to help them find ways to help them learn and gain confidence in what they are doing. Sometimes giving them an alternate way to understand the work makes all the difference.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a degree in English. I am a certified pre-k-8 teacher. I have been leaching ELA for the past 11 years at the middle school level. I have also taught third grade.

Handwriting

I am a certified pre-k-8 teacher. I have two years experience teaching pre-k, a year teaching Kindergarten, a year at 3rd grade, and 11 at middle school. I have taught handwriting at all those levels.

Phonics

As an ELA teacher I've had to teach phonics at all levels. I started out as a pre-k teacher and have had to teacher beginning treating, along with phonics. I also did this when I taught third grade. Phonics was a major component.

Study Skills

Learning how to study is a major part of middle school. Teaching the students the different ways they can study has helped improve their studying skills. For example, learning how to organize their notes has helped them study better.
