About Carol

My name is Carol. I have had over 25 years of teaching experience. I have taught elementary, middle school, and high school. I have a degree in Special Education with emphasis on learning disabilities. I have taught students from elementary through high school. I love teaching all grades. I have experience with teaching special needs students with my last 15 years working with students with learning disabilities. I have taught in public schools and private schools.

My experience in tutoring includes after school study hall and working with students who are homebound. I get a lot of pleasure in seeing my students learning material that they originally had difficulty with. My students have come to tell me that they did well on classwork and tests which makes me very proud of them. I will work with the student's teacher if needed to make sure he/she is on the right track.

My approach is to review material that the student knows making sure that they have a good understanding of the previous material they have learned. We would then go over the material that they are having trouble with or new material that needs to be explained. I use a variety of materials depending on what subject we are working on. I will use the internet to print up extra practice sheets or teaching material. I teach my students using the best way that they learn, whether the approach is auditory, visual, or tactile.

I have a twenty four hour cancellation policy and can arrange for make-up sessions. If it is not possible to work in the home, I can meet the student at the library or some other location.

I am looking forward to working with you and your child. I hope to hear from you. I know that you will be pleased.
