About Carolyn

I am an NYC DOE certified ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher with over eight years of experience. I am available for conversational, grammatical, and writing instruction as well as NYS and international test preparation. I have a MS in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) from the City College of New York, and have worked for the NYC Department of Education for three years. I have also taught internationally and I am CELTA certified.

I have experience teaching middle school (grades 6-8) ELA as well as general and business English, conversational classes and exam preparation (NYSESLAT, NYS ELA exams, Cambridge, TOEIC, and GMAT). I have also led workshops on exam preparation techniques. Prior to teaching, I worked in the New York banking industry for eight years.

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.

Business

I have a BS in Finance and over 9 years of experience in the financial industry. I was an operations specialist in international banking for 1.5 years, specializing in international dividends. I worked as both a fixed income and equities internal auditor at an investment bank for 5 years and was a business risk manager at a trust company for 3 years.

Phonics

I have a MS degree in TESOL, which includes extensive linguistics and phonics theory and application. In addition, I work as an ESL teacher in a middle school, where phonics instruction is an integral part of increasing student literacy.
