About Caroline

My love of school and teaching extends as far back as childhood, when I would make my friends sit for my "lessons" in various topics. Now, a graduate of Wesleyan University with a B.A. in Psychology, I am eager to continue teaching and excited to help students feel good about learning. My background is largely in special needs and behavioral health, I have worked as a 1:1 behavioral aide in a special education classroom, as well as an administrator at a camp for children with behavioral, emotional, and learning challenges. While in college, I also worked to implement a math based early intervention program in a local YMCA preschool and taught American Sign Language to elementary and preschool aged children.

My approach to tutoring is to focus on a person's strengths, and help them use those strengths to attempt whatever challenge they are currently facing. I believe that there are multiple forms of intelligence and that every single person has the ability to succeed. I want people to feel as if they are capable of accomplishing the task at hand, and I am creative in finding ways to help them do so. I look forward to meeting you or your child!

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.

Autism

I have worked with children with behavioral challenges for three years, first as a counselor, and then an administrator, at a camp for kids with emotional and learning challenges. Most recently I worked as a 1:1 aide for a child with autism in a special education classroom.

Special Needs

My work in special needs began in a therapeutic childcare center where I spent a semester of college. I then went on to become an administrator at a camp for children with severe behavioral, emotional, and learning challenges. Finally, this past year, I was a 1:1 special education aide and worked at a camp for adults with physical disabilities. My work in these areas has taught me to value difference, to trust in the abilities of my students, and to look for creative ways of connecting to different subjects and ideas. In tutoring a student with special needs, my goal would be to encourage them and believe in their abilities, while also acknowledging that they may learn best in a non-traditional way. Together we would work to develop lesson plans, and homework schedules, that worked for the student and helped them learn as fully as possible.
