About Carol

Using and learning language is tough for everyone, but with some tenacity and the right approach, it becomes easier. Let me help you begin, continue, brush up, and perfect your language skills in English, native or non-native, or in Spanish. Whether you are a young student in MS or HS, an adult student in college, or a professional looking to move up in your career, I can help you build your skills higher.

ESL/ESOL
I've worked with adult students from Brazil, China, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Italy and more. I have a TEFL Certification from the Boston Language Institute and was previously a certified ESL Tutor with ProLiteracy of America. No matter your level, I can help you establish your goals and help you overcome your personal linguistic barriers.

Spanish
I have had 8 years of formal Spanish language instruction--including immersion experiences in Costa Rica and Mexico, mentored by veteran instructors. My experiences have helped me learn the important milestones when learning another language. I can teach you the mechanics if you are just starting out, but more importantly I can help train you to become a better listener and quicker on your feet. Most students with the desire already have a handful of knowledge that is just swimming in their brain. I can help you train your brain to function in Spanish without relying on constant translation--the key to becoming fluent.

I hope to speak with you soon and consider how I can aid your language learning experience.

Recommended! — I used Carol to help me with Beginner Spanish. She is very approachable and knowledgeable. She teaches the student that you need to train your ear to be fluent. I was able to understand what she said in one session. I would recommend Carol to everyone! ...
