About Carolyn

I am a writer who loves teaching English, writing, and history. I currently teach college (have also taught psychology and sociology), but I have tutored all ages. I am a certified high school English teacher and elementary guidance counselor who believes that we are ALL capable of learning. I have a working knowledge of French and tutor occasionally for French literature courses. I have also taught SAT reading and generally worked with students on editing issues. My approach is flexible as well as interdisciplinary; as a voracious reader, I encourage All of my students to improve their critical reading skills, a necessity for All successful academic endeavors. I received my B.A. in English from Wellesley College and an M.Ed. in Counseling from Boston University. I consider myself too to be a lifelong student as I write, teach, and learn daily! I also have three children, including a daughter who will soon receive her undergraduate degree in global affairs. I would welcome the opportunity to work with any student; I believe in open communication and would encourage students to communicate their goals, which will result in a successful tutoring experience.
