"I was pleased to find a study skills class for my daughter as she is about to enter middle school. Organizational skills are difficult for her, and I wanted to give her a head start in learning essential skills before starting 7th grade. The course materials provided by Carolyn are excellent. I was thrilled when I saw my daughter apply her new organizational skills to her out-of-control bedroom. She wrote a clean-up plan, breaking down the the big job into small steps. It is a "work in progress," and she can refer to her work plan so she can keep making progress toward her goal."

"I also just wanted to thank you for everything you did for me, I never really got a chance to tell you that. I think of you not only as my teacher, but a friend. The best memories I have with you is when we just sat at your desk talking. You didn’t just teach me how to write a good paper, but you taught me much more important things about life. I really do miss the Monday nights we spent together. I know I would drive you crazy a lot of the time, but you stayed with me and helped me grow into the person I am now. I will always be thankful for the time you gave me."

-Jon Leener, Univ. of Wisconsin

"Carolyn is a tutor that not only helps your kid excel in school, but also your kid loves so much she never wants to stop going."

Study Guide – Traffic Light System

The best way to use a teacher generated study guide is with the Traffic Light System. Get yourself set with a green, a yellow, and a red marker. Now slowly go through the list of vocabulary, facts, and ideas that have been prepared, asking yourself “Do I know this?” Anything you are certain of gets a green mark. Vague content gets a yellow mark, and if you are clueless un-cap the red marker. Now start by learning the material marked with red. Next clarify the yellow information. Finally, as the exam nears go through all of the information again.
