About the lesson

I have a B.A. in Psychology. I am also certified to teach grades K through 8 and Early Childhood Education. I also have a Master's Degree in Counseling. I tutor grades K through 6 now in Reading, Writing and Language.
I am proficient in teaching College Composition to college freshmen including lesson planning, creating many handouts, lecturing and individual help for writing. I also have years of experience teaching Basic Mathematics to college freshmen. My methodology is eclectic including class discussion, lectures and individual help as well as help in creating electronic portfolios. In tutoring I teach my students individually. I ask a lot of questions and am creative and flexible and very encouraging with my students. I believe strongly in positive reinforcement, no matter what level or subject I am teaching. I am warm, funny and nurturing and I love teaching!

About Carolyn

I taught for 27 years in an urban district from grades 1 through 8. Some of that experience was in a detention home teaching all subjects to students aged 14 to 17. I retired from teaching public school and subsequently taught Basic Math in college and continue to teach College Composition as an adjunct professor to college freshmen for 8 years. Currently I am tutoring elementary students part time in Reading, Writing and Language. Most of my students do very well and improve and receive the requisite A,B or C required for them not to have to repeat the course.
