About Carolyn

I graduated from Texas A&M University-Kingsville in 2004 with a major in English and minors in Psychology and Journalism. I am presently working on my Masters in English and tutoring all levels of English. My strongest asset as a tutor is my positive attitude and patience. I have a learning disabled daughter who is now in her third year of college and flourishing. Needless to say her public school counselors and teachers thought it best to steer her towards minimum wage jobs and not to aspire to go to college. I was furious because they devalued my daughter's intelligence and abilities based on what they had taught her in public school. I told my daughter that her teachers and counselors were incorrect in their assessment of her and that I would help prepare her for college, where the public school had failed. That is how I started tutoring and what made me go back and get my degree.

Although grammar is an important part of the English language and should be taught early in school because it is necessary to be understood correctly, there is so much more that is not covered in school and that is where I come in. I place special emphasis on critical reading and thinking processes that will forever change a student's overall outcome in every subject they attempt to accomplish for the rest of their life. Becoming a critical thinker improves all school subjects and gives the student an increased advantage on all fronts. I have tutored Jr. High, High School, and incoming freshmen college students and look forward to the coming year.
