Carrie A.

Private tutor in San Jose, CA


Western Washington University - Bachelors, English Literature , University of Colorado Boulder - PHD, Learning Sciences and Human Development


I taught English at the high school level and writing at the community college level. I have a doctoral degree in education and human development. Whatever it is, I enjoy helping people learn new things and reach academic goals. My expertise as a tutor includes any area of English language arts, including literature, reading comprehension, writing, essays, creative writing, grammar, and others. I've also had experience helping students prepare for college, including the college admissions process. In addition, I've taught educational evaluation and adolescent development at the college level. I'm comfortable working with students of all ages thanks to my experience working with everyone from middle school students to older adults. I'm currently a researcher, but I enjoy teaching and want to continue doing it through tutoring. I'm very supportive and invested in the success of my students, and I work hard to make sure that my sessions are interesting, engaging, and suited to the needs of a diverse student population. When I have free time, I enjoy cooking, reading, running trails, and going on hikes.
