I am a private professional tutor and owner of Carpenter Tutoring. I have received certification as an Advanced Tutor through the College Reading and Learning Association, earned my M.Ed. from the College of William & Mary in 2020, and was named the Tutor of the Year at William & Mary in 2020. In my business, I work with learners of all ages and from all backgrounds in a range of academic subjects, time management, study skills, academic coaching, and even dissertation coaching.

I believe that every learner is capable of gaining deep understanding of virtually any topic--sometimes all it takes is finding a way to explain the material that matches that learner's style! My instructional approach focuses on meeting students where they are and supporting them through any hesitations or discomforts from which academic difficulties may arise. Whether your student only has to brush up on a few concepts or is resistant to completing coursework, I will come to each session with patience, understanding, and just the right amount of discipline. I truly believe that excellent educational relationships begin with mutual respect, and I work to build meaningful relationships with all of my clients.

I have been studying Latin since 2008 and tutoring Latin since 2009. In 2018, I earned my B.A. in Classical Studies with a Latin concentration from the College of William & Mary. In the fall of 2019, I taught five levels of Latin (Latin 1 through AP Latin) to students at Hampton Roads Academy as a long-term substitute teacher. I currently tutor a number of students of varying levels in Latin.

I have always had a passion for writing, whether it be academic or creative. I have held several jobs writing articles for local newspapers and publishers, experiences which helped hone my proofreading skills. I further cultivated my writing skills as an English Literature double-major at the College of William & Mary. Since 2016, I have worked as a private writing tutor helping students turn their thoughts into written expression, whet

Over the past three years, I have worked in Admissions offices and Dean of Students offices in two institutions in the Hampton Roads region of Virginia. Through these experiences, I have developed a strong understanding of the features schools look for in student application materials as well as the academic practices that will lead to a student's success in college. Further, my M.Ed. in Higher Education Administration prepared me to help students navigate the college experience as both students and young adults.

Cooking

As a foodie at heart, I decided to learn early on how to make some of my favorite restaurant-inspired meals at home. I have been cooking for over 6 years and have developed a wide repertoire of go-to recipes. If you're looking to expand your recipe book, get confident with a common protein you could never quite conquer, or learn how to come up with tasty dinners on the fly, I can help!
