" My tutoring experience started as far back as I can remember with my very own sister who is 4 years younger than me. I helped her with everything from fractions, to AP homework, to college applications and essays. In high school I was a volunteer peer tutor in subjects ranging from algebra to English, and even to this day my high school friends still send me their essays to proofread! In college I spent 2 years as a student-teacher for a volunteer-run after school arts program in local South Side Chicago elementary schools, where we taught children fundamental concepts and themes in fine art and how to express those in their own art projects. ...

"I have read and evaluated over 1,000 admissions essays written by high school students, interviewed hundreds of college admissions applicants, and participated in numerous Admissions Committee meetings at which admissions decisions were made. I have also taught high school students preparing for the Georgia High School Graduation Test and coordinated the student workers in the Office of Admission at Sarah Lawrence College.

"My expertise in math comes from me being a bit of a nerd (ok - maybe more than a bit). I first tutored algebra and geometry while I was still in high school. More recently, I have been tutoring my own daughters (14, 11, and 7)— an adventure for me, as their different learning styles keep me on my toes. One daughter has Aspberger's; and the other two have AD/HD. My experience tutoring Spanish comes from the roughly 170 students that I’ve worked with over the last few years. Here are some of the comments from my last class’s students: “Profe Carr is engaging, caring, and helpful." ...

" I enjoy tutoring all subjects (history, math, study skills, philosophy, and English to list a few), but in particular, languages. I taught English lessons while I worked and studied abroad at Sophia University in Tokyo, Japan. When I returned from my semester abroad, I continued to tutor; I taught elementary level Japanese to a corporate lawyer and devised my own lessons. Additionally, I have taught 6th to 8th graders in math, science, history, English and SSAT/SAT skills."

"The mental leap from symbols on a page to a tangible function of one's life was the part of the education system that I feel was not out right taught but would have benefited my class mates immensely. My love of learning and understanding is what I bring to every student I tutor. I try to show my students why the number pi is used rather than telling them it equals 3.14. I look for parallels between the material in front of us and their own life so that tutoring isn't just an extension of a lecture period."

"In 2009, I graduated from the University of Georgia with cum laude honors and a BA in English, and I am currently an aspiring author. I've group-tutored at a middle school the last two years and have privately tutored over a dozen students during that same stretch. I've also worked with pre-teens and teenagers at youth camps the past two summers, gaining much experience and valued interaction with students of all personality types. I'm currently employed part-time with a learning center, and I am always eager for students to tutor. I'd love the opportunity to help, regardless of the situation and need!." ...
