About Carolyn

I have children of my own and have also been a teacher in the public and private schools. I have a B.S. in Education from Auburn University.

Being a mother is a true gift from God! I was able to stay at home with my children and home school them for nine years. We had so much fun learning and exploring together. They taught me so much! I always say I wish I could start all over with them as babies because the time has gone by too fast. I would love to tutor your children with the same attention, encouragement, nurture, and love as I gave to my own children. My youngest child is now in the 10th grade and my older daughter is an English major at James Madison University. I enjoy working with pre-K through third graders with reading, English, and handwriting. I have attended workshops with an emphasis in these areas and would love to come alongside you in encouraging your children and hopefully fostering a true love for reading and learning! Thank you for considering me as a tutor for your child.

I have attended many workshops with Dr. Cates and Brenda Murphy with Understanding the Way. These workshops used the Sail Away Curriculum in teaching reading and grammar. I taught my children how to read and write cursive in Kindergarten with great success! I am fine with print first by all means!

As mentioned above, I homeschooled for nine years and have had the advantage of using many curriculums that fit with each child's learning style and I believe mostly the child needs to feel you care for them and teach with patience enthusiasm and encouragement! The Sail Away curriculum I used was a fun way to teach your children to write and these workshops I attended gave me great confidence!

My experience and education have given me the confidence to come alongside children to teach them to read.

Thank you for considering me as a tutor for your child. I currently work from 10:30 until 3:30 Monday through Friday, but outside of these hours I am willing to meet somewhere quiet and convenient with your child that will work with both of our schedules!
