Individualized Part-Time Tutoring

Avg response < 5 hrs
Following 17 years at IBM, I enjoyed 15 years of tutoring my two children from learning to read through Advanced Placement high school classes. They often brought their classmates home so that I could also help them understand material. I tutored a neighbor's grammar school children 3/days per week for a year until their grades raised to grade level (all as a volunteer). I have worked with young people for 20 years through work as a Girl Scout leader, Boy Scout leader, and religious education teacher. Professionally, I have tutored since 2014. I have especially enjoyed teaching preschoolers how to read and preparing them for kindergarten, as well as working with grammar school through high school students with more rigorous academics. I strive to explain the material in a way that connects with each child and their individual interests.

Carolyn is an exceptional teacher and a very kind human being. She is very hardworking and does not give up if the kid is falling behind. She knows each child interest and develops a course around it to bring them in. She helped our son who was not interested in the traditional learning style to develop an interest to read, write and sit at one place. Her curriculum is well rounded between math, science, reading, and writing. She helped our son with fine motor skills, writing, reading and maths. The boys look forward to the science experiments on Fridays :) We are very grateful to have her educating and mentoring our sons and us to do better. She has been teaching our kids for more than a year and we look forward to having her for years to come.
