About Carolyn

The spark of revignition that appears in the eyes of a child the moment they truly comprehend a new concept is magnificent to observe; knowing you have been part of the child's success is genuinely fulfilling.

My experience teaching has been gleaned primarily by assisting my own children aged 9 to 18 with their study skills, confidence & daily homework. I have one dyslexic child whose path to success as a pre-AP middle school student has required creativity and patience. I have about 15 years of Faith Formation teaching experience; grades k-8. I substitute taught for a year at a Massachusetts elementary school. I have also managed a team of staff during my 15+ years working as a tax specialist. My communication skills, both written and oral are excellent. I have written and published blog articles. I am a winning participant in collegiate Oxford debate team. My passion is literature and writing. I am also adept with excel, I have in depth knowledge of budgeting, finance, accounting, general business concepts, economics, and basic contract law. I am also capable in basic math, public speaking, study skills, time management, testing technique (CPA exam passed first time, all four subjects - 16 hour, 2 day exam), and proofreading/checking work.

- Published blogger
- Collegiate Oxford debate winner
- Avid reader
- Superior analysis skills (including years of interpreting tax code - aka... I can pick through anything to get to the point).
- Excellent written & verbal skills
- Extensive vocabulary; I literally enjoy reading the thesaurus.

Years of assisting my own children to prepare them for tests in all subjects and bestow lessons of time management and studying techniques have well prepared my patience and competency to assist elementary students within these areas.

I am available during the day to assist home schooled children and for traditional students I have afternoon and evenings availability. Please contact me to discern if we are a fit for each other and to schedule your first tutoring session.
