About Carole

My name is Carole M., and I currently live in Pennsylvania. I have a love for the English language and teaching. I lived overseas in Wiesbaden, Germany for seven years with my family. My passion is writing, and I particularly enjoy writing about my experiences overseas. I am married, and have two grown boys and a grandson. My husband and I just celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary.

I have lots of experience teaching kids of all ages. I hold an associate's degree in elementary education, and a bachelor's degree in English with a minor in journalism. I worked in an elementary school with children of special needs for four years. I substitute taught for four years as well, and I have spent numerous hours volunteering in the elementary school. I worked as a volunteer to help students with their reading, writing and spelling. I have always had a desire to help students who have difficulty with their reading and writing, as I know first hand how frustrating it is for a student to struggle with this. Both my husband and son have struggled with reading and writing, and it is them who inspired me to specialize in this field. I have seen both of them succeed in life, and it is because of the educators in their lives who took the extra time to help them. I believe all educators need to take a vested interest in each student, and build their confidence by helping them to learn, as EVERY child is capable of learning.


Feel free to contact me and I will be happy to go over my experience, listen to your needs and to share ideas. I am flexible with tutoring times and locations. I live in South PA, just five minutes over the Maryland line. I'm available to tutoring in Hanover, Gettysburg and Littlestown Pennsylvania, as well as Hampstead, Manchester and Westminster Maryland.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have worked with K-6th grade students in all subject areas. I worked as an aide for special education students in the elementary school for 4 years. I also substitute taught for grades k-12 for 4 years, and I volunteered in the elementary schools for 6 years. I received an associates degree in elementary education in 1988, and I received my bachelor's degree in english, with a minor in journalism in 2007. I am also very familiar with online learning, as I completed my degree through University of Maryland online, while living overseas. I thoroughly enjoy working with with kids, and I especially love helping them learn. My son had an IEP throughout his school years, and I worked with him a lot to keep him on track. He is now grown-up and is doing very well. It is my goal to help students achieve, so they too can have the confidence to set out to do whatever it is that they choose.

English

I have a Bachelor's degree in English, and an Associates Degree in Elementary education. I worked as an aide in an elementary school with students with IEP's. I also volunteered for four years in an elementary school.

Phonics

I have an AA degree in elementary education, and a BA degree in English. I have a lot of experience working with students from grades k-5 in all subject areas, but particularly in phonics. I was a regular volunteer in the elementary schools for 8 years, and I worked with students who needed extra help with reading. I privately tutored a student for two years who struggled with reading. I used flash cards, board games and computer programs. I helped him learn to read the flash cards using phonics. We then used the words that he had just learned, and created a book. He took great pride in his book, and was excited to read it to his mom. He then asked to make another book, and I of course agreed, but told him he first needed to learn some new words. I chose the words from scholastic books that were age appropriate for his level. Once he learned the words, we then read the scholastic book together that I had pulled the words from. I am a fan of learning through phonics, and find it to be the most effective way for most students, especially those students who need a bit of extra help. I believe the best way to get a child to learn, is to make learning fun, and the best way to make learning fun is to modify the lessons to the interest of the child.
