About Carol

I have eight years classroom experience working with students of differing strengths and weaknesses. Students with varying learning styles and abilities can be taught using a variety of creative techniques. Using this approach to teaching almost certainly will allow you to find ways of stimulating students to grasp the material being taught.

I have learned in the process of teaching that each person can be taught the subject area if the material can be tailored to fit the different learning styles of prospective students. The most important ingredient is the tutor's interest in the subject being taught and a keen insight in the student's abilities and capabilities. My experience teaching high school student with varied emotional and physical problems including ADHD, Autistic and Behavorial Disturbed individuals has enabled me to have a keen perspective on the needs of each student that I encounter in my profession.

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.

ACT Math

ACT math can be challenging, it draws on the student's knowledge of algebra 1 & 2 as well as geometry. Accuracy and speed are the skills required to be successful. Students have to practice these problems with a teacher who is experienced in these subject area. I have successfully taught algebra and geometry and am qualified to prepare students for this exam.

ACT Science

The ACT science tests students' abilities to analyze and understand scientific data put forth in experiments with collection of data and results. I am able to teach students how to acquire the skill necessary to interpret these data and answer questions correctly in an efficient and concise manner

Algebra 1

I taught Algebra1, Biology, and Geometry for seven years to high school freshmen and sophomores. In college I studied math to the calculus level in economics and finance.

Biology

I studied biology and chemistry at an advanced level. I studied math up to the calculus level in college in and am an Economics and Finance major.

Geometry

Geometry is made up of theorems and postulates, inductive and deductive reasoning. This can seem daunting to the student who is not familiar to the subject. As students progress they realize that the theorems and postulates help them solve the problems in the particular area of geometry the rule applies. My expertise is to make student get so comfortable with the subject they actually find geometry enjoyable.

Prealgebra

Experience teaching Algebra, biology, General Science, Environmental Science for seven years in high school. Tutor prealgebra and am familiar with the math middle school curriculum.
