I am a college professor, certified teacher, and private tutor offering assistance in English, history, the life sciences, study skills, and standardized test prep for students in middle school, high school, and college.

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Creative Writing, minor in American History, from Eastern University, St. Davids, PA and a Master of Arts in Teaching from Rivier University, Nashua, NH. I have 15+ years experience working with students of all ages, with 4+ years experience tea...
Our daughter was truly struggling with her Praxis exam (the social studies part of it) and was in need of a tutor who could guide her in this subject and, also, in test taking strategies. She met with Carilyn for two tutoring sessions, retook her exam and passed with flying colors! I believe Carilyn gave her confidence and guidance on how to approach the exam and this made a huge impact. We would highly recommend her! Thank you.

Our son received a very poor midterm grade for ELA so we requested help from Carilyn. We were please to see that in 6 short weeks our sons grades improved by 15 - 20 points. In addition to the improvements in his ELA grade Carilyn has help him see the benefits of learning. It truly helps to have a outside person echo what you have been trying to get across to your child. We highly recommend Carilyn to anyone looking for help, she is fantastic and delivered results!

Carilyn helped my 9th grader write a children's book as part of an English assignment. My son has great ideas but has a hard time organizing and completing assignments. Carilyn is very good with getting him to organize and complete the assignment. He earned an A+ on the report!

Carilyn has been a great tutor for the Praxis. She is patient, kind, and knowledgeable, and her tutoring for the Praxis was successful! I highly recommend her.
- Shelda G. from Brockton, MA
I began the teaching certification process about nine months ago. After hearing horror stories about multiple failures on the Praxis exams, I decided to reach out to Carilyn for help. She responded very quickly and made herself readily available. She began the sessions with a discussion of what I wanted and interjected her thoughts about how to get me there. Every week (sometimes more) she would spend an hour (or more) with me. She was incredibly kind and patient, spending time reviewing each facet of both exams. Needless to say, I passed both Praxis exams with flying colors, on my first try. I highly, highly, highly recommend Carilyn to anyone looking for a Praxis tutor.

Carilyn's tutoring helped to improve my son's scores in SAT reading by 40 points and writing by 50 points in just 10 sessions. She met with the two of us to review expectations and set a professional relationship from the start. My son found their sessions to be engaging and describes Carilyn as energetic and friendly. He credits her teaching as the sole reason for his improvement on his test scores. I strongly recommend Carilyn as a tutor in reading and writing.

Carilyn is a very reliable and effective tutor. She has helped two of my children score 100 pts and 80 pts higher on the English section of the SATs, with approximately 10 one hour sessions. She is very engaging and helps keeps the students interested. She additionally helped my daughter with her writing skills in just a handful of sessions, which resulted in her English and History quarterly grades going up by over 5 points each. I certainly would recommend Carilyn.

My daughter is eager to start working with Carilyn. She is approachable and easy to work with! Good communication and knowledgable
- Dayna M. from Franklin, MA
My 10th grade daughter has been working with Carilyn since March for overall study skills. Carilyn was able to help her go from C's and D to honor roll this last term. With Carilyn's help, my daughter did better on her finals this year than she has ever done in past. Carilyn motivated my daughter to organize her studying and held her more accountable and that paid off! Carilyn does a great job communicating review of her sessions in a timely manner and is very punctual. Her strengths are History and English and overall reading comprehension. Carilyn is offering a summer on line, interactive program for reading and comprehension but is keeping it interesting using articles etc. not just having them read a book like for school summer reading. Sounds like a great way to keep teens engaged in learning over the summer but can fit in to a busy teen's summer life.

Carilyn was very warm and friendly. She met with my son a couple of times, and she was very helpful in giving advice and a quick prep for the HSPT! I would definitely have her help again with any needs for my son! He thought she was really nice too!
- William C. from Mansfield, MA
Carilyn is an absolute pleasure. Her knowledge of writing and literature is impressive. She utilizes a variety of formats to engage her student. She adapts the lesson to suit the specific learning style of each individual student. My son has succeeded in truly understanding complex works of literature that he would certainly never have understood without Carilyn.
- Michelle S. from Norfolk, MA
Carilyn has been a awesome tutor!! She is very easy to get in touch with and very flexible. I'm currently trying to pass the Praxis I and she has helped me tremendously. Since I have been tutoring with her my knowledge on content and confidence have both increased! She suggests great strategies based on your learning needs and really tries her best to provide support. I strongly recommend her!
