"Carrie has worked with both my children throughout high school. My twins attend separate private schools and are very different learners with different academic profiles. My son has learned how important an outline is to focus his ideas. His writing skills have improved immensely and he is prepared for college. Carrie's wonderful sense of humor keeps him motivated. My daughter benefited from meeting with Carrie to learn strategies for the ACT writing section and her score reflected Carrie's techniques work. Carrie's upbeat personality and her ability to connect with each child's own specific needs makes working with her not only rewarding but also a joy. She is HIGHLY recommended!" ~Libby, Devon resident

Teaching at The Grayson School, where I was the Writing Center Director

"Carrie is an incredible resource when it comes to tutoring. Not only is she an Ivy League English grad, she is also a co-founder of the first gifted school in Philadelphia. We were lucky enough to enlist Carrie to help our 4th grader learn the fundamentals of comprehensive reading and writing. Carrie chose wonderful books that inspired my daughter to truly love the entire reading comprehension process. Our daughter was writing like a 6th grader post sessions with Carrie. We will certainly employ Carrie again with our younger daughter. The investment in your child's ability to read, comprehend and communicate can not be overvalued. It's a life skill that Carrie truly nurtures in her students. Can't recommend highly enough!!!!!" ~Amy, Devon Elementary parent of a 4th grader

"We have tried several tutoring professionals and can honestly say 'Mrs W-B' is, hands down, our TOP choice. Her impressive background, OUTSTANDING academic and interpersonal skills, and contagious enthusiasm make her an INVALUABLE resource for long-term supportive tutoring. She has earned our trust through her honest commitment to our kids' development. We give her an A+++" ~Regina, Conestoga High School parent of a 10th grader

“Carrie brings a special passion for learning to her students. She motivates her students to engage in the subject and think outside the box!! Her sense of humor and unique teaching style engages the student in the subject at hand. My 14 year old son looks forward to meeting with her to work on his writing.”~Barb, Conestoga High School parent of a 9th grader

 “Mrs. W-B helped Thomas to be more clear in his writing.  He has specifically benefited from your writing process ‘system.’ The visual presentation of it helped Thomas learn how to use it.  Thomas feels you are a better tutor than his previous writing coach because you do more than just correct what is written. Both boys appreciate your energy and enthusiasm!” ~Gloria, parent of 9th and 12th grade students at Shipley
