About Carolyn

As a NYC public middle school English teacher for almost 10 years, I have worked with diverse students to improve their writing and reading comprehension for academic success, increased confidence for testing, and communication skills. My background as a Manhattan native and student at The Brearley School, Trinity School, and Wesleyan University provided me with an excellent liberal arts education.

In addition to being a teacher, I am mom to two teens who have thrived in the NYC public school system, so I'm familiar with the high school and college application processes. I teach full-time during the school year, but I have very flexible hours for tutoring from July 18-Sept. 2, and then during after-school hours.

My eclectic professional experience prior to teaching includes proofreading and editing. My specialty is guiding writers of all ages to find their unique voice and identify the most effective way to express their ideas with clarity and confidence. I work with students on personal essays as well as informational, argument, analytical and other academic writing, in addition to creative writing pieces and poetry.

My approach is very individualized. I will spend time getting to know the needs and goals of the student, and work out a plan in consultation with the parents. Whether you have a specific writing task to work on, such as a college application essay; need to improve your vocabulary; or need strategies for getting your ideas on paper, I can help. Please contact me to find out more and to schedule a lesson!
