About Carla

I am a recently retired math teacher. I taught middle school math for 25 years and was a math coach for 3 years. I've been tutoring since I was in high school. First, helping my sister tackle geometry, then throughout my college career in the tutoring center. Throughout my teaching career, I spent many hours before, during and after school tutoring students in everything from 6th grade math to Trigonometry.

I love working one-on-one with students. Here a few of my favorite memories of tutoring: when a student texted me to tell me that she aced the test that I helped prepare her for; when a father saw me at the post office and thanked me for tutoring his son, whose math grade went up significantly when he worked with me; and when a former student sees me years later and tells me he's so glad that I encouraged him to be persistent and to never stop asking questions.

In addition to helping students understand the math skills, it is my goal to help students become confident and independent mathematicians. When I work with students, I will create as many problems as necessary, with several variations, until I'm certain that students thoroughly understand the concept. I also take every opportunity to make it real so that students understand the math as it relates to real-life. Please contact me, I look forward to working with you.
