I am an enthusiastic educator motivated by the belief that all children can be successful learners. I am skillful at involving, motivating, and leading students to achieve their educational goals. I am a strong believer that children learn in different ways and employ student-focused teaching strategies to emphasize each child's unique abilities. For the past five years, I have tutored and taught kids ranging from preschool to high school. My areas of expertise are English / Language Arts and Science, but I have extensive experience teaching all subjects through middle school. I have helped struggling students succeed and have helped others advance ahead of their peers.
During my professional career, I wrote numerous articles for publication, which required me to possess excellent writing and grammar skills. Now, I am enthusiastic about teaching all ages the importance of communicating effectively via writing and speaking, and therefore the need for a solid understanding of grammar. I have worked with many ESL students, both in the U.S. and abroad, to develop competency in English. I have assisted many students in unlocking their hidden ability to read, which is particularly rewarding.
I hold three advanced degrees in biological sciences (biology, public health, and nursing) and am a licensed nurse. I have 15 years of experience in the pharmaceutical industry in research and development. I have spent the past five years tutoring children of all ages to love and understand science. As a tutor, I have developed my own curriculum to help my students excel in science. I have also guided elementary and middle school students in the completion of science fair projects and helped prepare them for standardized science tests and placement tests.

Carolyn has taught me various things such as proper grammar and different styles of writing. Her points are very well-thought out and very convincing
My daughter is beginning to understand the steps there are in order to start putting an essay together. Thank you for her first lesson!!
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.
