I graduated from Florida Atlantic University with a degree in Electrical Engineering and am currently retired from the telecommunications industry. I completed over 30 credit hours in mathematics while pursuing my degree including College Algebra, Linear Algebra, Calculus, Statistics, and Differential Equations. I started tutoring my peers while completing my undergraduate degree and continued tutoring part-time for 10 years after graduation. I have always enjoyed tutoring and seeing my students gain confidence while their math abilities improved. From 2000 to 2011 I home schooled both my children thru algebra 1.

My main goal is for your child to improve their knowledge base in mathematics, to believe in their ability and to become more confident in school. To do this the child must be willing to learn and to dedicate the needed time to practice. I am very patient while explaining a concept and will look for alternate ways of illustrating it until your child feels they have grasped it. I tend to do an initial evaluation of strengths and areas to focus on during our first session to develop a plan to best help your child.

Originally from Venezuela I and am fluent in Spanish as well as English and can tutor math in either language. I encourage you to contact me for an initial lesson, you will not be disappointed.

Prealgebra

Prealgebra

I have been tutoring Algebra 1 for many years. Pre-algebra is a common name for a course in middle school mathematics to prepare students for the study of Algebra 1. As a tutor of Algebra I know what concepts are important in Pre-algebra to build a strong foundation for the later courses. These topics include several broad subjects: review of natural number arithmetic, new types of numbers such as integers, fractions, decimals and negative numbers. These math concepts are the foundation for harder concepts in Algebra 1.

Test Preparation

AFOQT,

AFOQT

With many hours tutoring Algebra 1, the GED and the ASVAB math test portions I have the experience to help you master the concepts needed for the Arithmetic Reasoning & Math Knowledge portions of the AFOQT. The AFOQT will test your understanding of basic math terms and problem-solving methods taught in high school and lower level college courses inlcuding Arithmetic, Algebra & Geometry. I can help you succeed!!!
ASVAB,

ASVAB

Multiple-choice tests require a specific approach. We will focus on the math content for the ASVAB as well as on strategies to use your time effectively; plugging in the answer choices (back-solving), eliminating wrong answers, making an educated guess, etc.

Responds quickly and explains solutions thoroughly!

Carol is a life saver! I was having trouble understanding the concept of simplifying and multiplying radicals and I have a test tomorrow morning so I was freaking out. Carol responded within a couple minutes to my first message to her and within half an hour she was helping me with my homework. Super thankful!

One week later, and the student PASSED his GED math test. So happy to receive the news today and to know that he is well on his way to achieving whatever goals he sets his mind to.

Carol B. - CHSPE Tutoring

Hello fellow students and parents that utilize Wyzant for their tutoring needs in their pursuit of education, My name is Richard and my daughter Mackenzie had taken the CHSPE early this year. While she excelled in the English portion of the exam, she struggled with some challenges in math. Mackenzie passed the English portion of the CHSPE with flying colors but fell just a little short in the math section. After the test we began searching for a tutor to assist her in achieving her goals of completing the math portion of the test. My daughter is 16 and her hopes were to graduate early to begin her college career. We found Carol B. On Wyzant and Kenzie selected her out of the many tutors. Kenzie met with Carol online for five sessions beginning a month before the test. While Kenzie did the work and put in the effort. Carol B. Was the guide that lead her to the water. Kenzie drank her fill of the lessons and guidance and passed the math portion of the CHSPE with a respectable score. Kenzie is currently in her first two college courses at the local JC and is thriving. I have utilized Wyzant myself through my undergrad and still utilize the service through my MBA program. Tutoring, with the right tutor is an excellent tool to use while pursuing education at every level. I implore all students at all levels to utilize tutoring as a tool in their educational goals. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Carol B. For her outstanding dedication to my daughter in her pursuit of her goal of passing the CHSPE exam. She was punctual, available, dedicated, and focused on the key points that my daughter was struggling with. If you're looking for a tutor to help your student with the CHSPE, GED, or any other acuity test that aligns with your students goals, Carol B. Has my full recommendation. Thank you Carol B. And thank you Wyzant for your outstanding commitment to student success! Sincerely, Richard E.

Hello Richard, Thank you for you kind words. As you said, Kenzie put in the work and effort and was rewarded with her test results. Wishing her continued success on her current and future educational endeavors!!

Patient, Prepared works step by step.

Working with Carol has helped me improve my math skills because she works from the foundation up and takes it step by step. She is also very patient with me if I don’t get it the first time or two lol. She is always prepared for our sessions. Highly recommend!

Perfect for AFOQT Math

I asked Carol to help me in the math portion of the AFOQT. I've always struggled in math and confidence in the subject. Carol made learning the concepts easy and enjoyable. She made sure I understood all the concepts and always sent me additional worksheets and practice tests. If you need any help in math especially the AFOQT, Carol is the best person for you!

Expert Knowledge and Creative Teacher

As someone who is not mathematically inclined, Carol is able to use many different methods to internalize the concepts at hand. Thanks to Carol, I have a new-found confidence in my mathematical ability. I would highly recommend to anyone studying for high school equivalent, or standardized tests alike!
