About Carol

I have been a teacher for 32 tears. I have been a substitute teacher for most of those 32 years subbing in all subject areas in middle and high school. I have done home bound instruction for more than 30 years as well. I love working one on one with kids helping them achieve those things they have struggled with in a regular classroom. I work very hard to make sure hat I try many different ways to explain things to ensure the students I work with are able to understand what we are working on after our sessions.

I have a degree from Penn State in Political Science and I am a certified teacher in secondary social studies and business and technology education. I have worked with middle school students, especially focusing on math skills. I have done many hours of work with high school students in government and economics as well as U.S. history. I have also taught adults working online through an online GED program. Lastly, I have worked with difficult populations as I taught basic education classes at a state prison. My experience is extensive but the most important factor I stress in tutoring is having a good time while learning. I like to do hands on things like using Hershey bars to get the basics of fractions into an understandable form. With the best part is eating the candy after we master the concepts!

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.

Career Development

I taught a community orientation and reintegration program to female inmates about to be released from a state correctional facility. I covered topics including but not limited to interviewing skills, cover letters and resumes, how to dress and speak appropriately for interviews, how to answer difficult questions in an interview and how to answer questions that employers may ask that legally they should not ask.

Political Science

I have a BA degree from Penn State University in Political Science. I graduated with honors and a GPA of 3.83. I have taught civics and government and economics on the high school level.

Social Studies

I hold a PA certification in secondary social studies. I have taught high school civics, government and economics as well as U.S. history on both an academic level as well as accelerated levels.
