About Carrie


Bio

I taught middle school and high school science/math off and on for over 25 years along with raising 4 boys. I have been tutoring for the last 5 years specializing in study skills, SAT, and teaching students how to be successful in any class they are taking. I work with students for as little as 3 months to over 2 years. I use humor and positive reinforcement to show each student their potential. I am excited about tutoring any student, any age, in any subject. I am extremely flexible...

I taught middle school and high school science/math off and on for over 25 years along with raising 4 boys. I have been tutoring for the last 5 years specializing in study skills, SAT, and teaching students how to be successful in any class they are taking. I work with students for as little as 3 months to over 2 years. I use humor and positive reinforcement to show each student their potential. I am excited about tutoring any student, any age, in any subject. I am extremely flexible about meeting times and meeting places. If there is a last minute test or an essay to grade, I'll meet with my students to help them be prepared. Learning really is fun.

The strategies for SAT reading involve using the time limit to your advantage. It is also not about comprehension and there are also strategies to use with two comparing readings. I teach many strategies to help students succeed on the SAT.

I have been teaching SAT prep for over 5 years both one-on-one and in groups. The most important part of the SAT writing is writing a great essay. I have the template that the SAT readers are looking for so my students always score high on the essay. I also have strategies for the other 2 writing sections including vocabulary.

SAT math is about knowing which questions to answer and learning how to use the time as your friend. I can show you how to get a 600 on the math section as long as you are pretty good at math and have taken algebra 2.

Many of the strategies I teach for students to use on the PSAT are also the ones students use on the SAT. I believe these strategies are critical in order to be successful on either test.

Wonderful Physical Science Tutor.

Wonderful tutoring session!!! Achieved a great deal in our initial session. Looking forward to second session. Carrie was extremely helpful in assessing what my child knew and needed to know for her science quiz. Carrie is very positive and great at teaching and or reviewing science concepts.

Cheryl, 8 lessons with Carrie

Perfect fit.

My husband and I have been so pleased with Carrie. Her availability and commitment to our daughter was apparent from the first session. Carrie has given her a sense of confidence in herself that she carries back to her class. We are thrilled that Carrie seems to be exactly what our student needed to help her through this tough geometry class.

Great tutor!

Carrie goes beyond helping our sons with their specific classroom needs. She also teaches them how to advocate for themselves with their teachers. So they know the right questions to ask to be able to complete homework and take tests successfully.

Great Tutor

Students all learn in different ways and a tutor can provide that needed assistance to succeed in school. Carrie did a great job for our daughter and was able to keep her on track and give her the confidence she lacked in the classroom. She developed an achievable schedule and was great at follow up with her, eliminating the classic parent-child conflict which so often occurs around homework. We plan on using her next year to get our daughter off to a good start in the fall. I would highly recommend Carrie for any parent that is struggling to help their ADD student.

Very Insightful

Carrie has been working with my son on study skills. She's amazing in her ability to see things that we don't and suggest ways to improve. She is flexible and very easy to work with. She communicates well and has been able to successfully improve my son's effectiveness at school.

Restores my faith in teachers

Carrie is extremely patient and has the ability to connect with the student. We were so concerned that our granddaughter wouldn't find someone that would be patient or have the ability to help overcome how far behind our granddaughter had become. The one on one tutoring was truly the answer for our situation. I look forward to utilizing Carrie for all tutoring needs.

Very personable and great with her teaching ethics!

After Carrie left our first lesson I felt more positive and encouraged than ever. She is great with showing how to write out the problems which was a problem with me and by the time she left I felt very confident! Thanks Carrie!

A Great Confidence Booster!

Carrie is an expert confidence-booster and really helped me to feel prepared for the PSAT. She sat with me for just a short time and gave me all kinds of tips about how to answer the problems, as well as strategies in general test taking. Very knowledgeable about the requirements for high school and beyond, Carrie also is great to talk to regarding college prep. She is very warm and personable, and knows just how to give you the confidence and support you need to succeed! Her catch phrase is, "You CAN do it!"
