About Carrie

I am a current middle school teacher with two years of full-time experience. I also have over five years of tutoring experience. I have worked with students between the ages of 6 and 16, but I would love to work with students outside of this age range too! In addition, as a teacher, I have worked with students with various behavioral and learning disabilities.

I am certified to teach middle and high school science and English. I have also as assisted with elementary-aged homeschooling and tutored in math and social studies. I can also provide tutoring for the ACT, VCLA, and various Praxis Exams.

I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Biology and Secondary Education. I absolutely love teaching science because of its hands-on and active nature. I have two years experience teaching Life Science in Virginia, as well as, an additional 5 years tutoring in science from elementary to high school biology and chemistry.

As a professional educator in Virginia, I am very familiar with the SOL exams and the information assessed on them. I can assist students with study for the content of the exams and with test-taking strategies.

I am generally available Monday thru Friday from 4-7 and 8-4 on weekends. In the summer my availability opens up considerably and I am available all week from 8-7. I am willing to travel to the student's location, meet in a coffee shop or library, or meet online. I want the student to be comfortable in their environment so that we can maximize their learning!

If my teaching philosophy matches with your learning style I would love to hear from you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I graduated with a Biology and Secondary Education degree. Part of my Secondary Education degree included classes on teaching the foundation of math, English, science and social studies. These classes fit seamlessly with teaching k-6 material.

I also have experience tutoring children in grades k-6. I worked with one family 2-3 times a week assisting them with homeschooling their kindergartner, second grader, and fourth grader. I have also tutored for two fifth grade girls in all primary subjects.

In addition, I passed all three Praxis Core exams- mathematics, reading, and writing, which measure proficiency in each core subject.

SOL

As a teacher in the Virginia Public Schools I understand the format and purpose of the SOL exams. I also understand what type of questions the SOL exams are composed of. I can offer students insight on how the exams are ran, scored, and provide test taking strategies to help increase success. In addition, I know many study and reference websites and sources for study materials.
