About Carol

I love helping students realize their full capacities to learn. I have worked as an aide for students with special needs for almost five years. I have learned a great amount of patience and understanding about what it means to be a successful teacher dealing with students with autism. I believe the reason sometimes students are adverse to reading and writing as both children and adults is they don't see the universal themes present in the literature that are still relevant today. I believe creativity in writing comes from seeing similarities in literature and a person's own life. Books and stories have abilities to positively change our lives. I am currently attending Hunter College for my Master's Degree in childhood education, grades 1-6.

I am certified in Preventing Academic Failure (PAF)- a multisensory Orton Gillingham approach. I was a participant in the 2005 Beacon Scholar Conference- a symposium recognizing two year students for research and written achievement. I graduated from Fordham University (2008) with a Bachelor of Arts in English.

Goals:
I believe in assessing student learning styles and teaching to that style whether it be visually or kinesthetically.
Students gain more confidence in his or her ability as a reader by becoming more adept at understanding literature.

I am available for a free consultation meeting.

Availability: I am generally available in the evenings and on the weekends.

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.

Literature

I am qualified to tutor in English literature because I have been a 2005 Beacon Scholar Conference candidate. I presented my research and writing on Edith Wharton's House of Mirth to a panel of judges. I also have my Bachelor of Arts in English Literature from Fordham University.
