Hi! My name is Carolyn, and I currently work as a copy editor for a scientific research journal in NYC. I graduated from the University of Virginia in 2012 with a double major in biology and English, and I have extensive experience both as a teacher and a private tutor.

During my undergraduate years, I tutored elementary students in reading comprehension and writing. I later worked as a graduate teaching assistant, where I led discussion sections and graded assignments for over 90 students a semester. In 2014, I lived in Prague for six months and worked as an English teacher with students ranging from young children to business professionals.

I am very experienced with standardized tests, as I scored well on both the SAT and GRE exams. I studied Latin in high school and college, so I enjoy sharing my interest in etymology with my students. Learning about the origin of the words we use is so interesting, and I find it extremely helpful to have a working knowledge of Latin roots when preparing for standardized exams.

For me, the most important thing about tutoring is helping my students to enjoy the experience. I think that anything can be interesting if you look at it the right way, and having an interest in and excitement for the material you are learning is the most important step (I think!) to really mastering a subject.
