Qualifications & Experience

My name is Carina Devairakkam-Brown. I love tutoring - and I've been doing it for over seven years! I have experience tutoring in many subjects, with students of various age groups and education levels - from elementary school all the way through undergraduate students. I do my best communicate knowledge in an interesting and personalized way, and address the specific needs of the students I am working with. My specialty is Writing - I worked for three years at Wesleyan University as a tutor hired by the writing department, and I also obtained a certificate (essentially a minor) in writing. I've really developed a knack for assessing the needs of writing students, and developing a personalized approach that they can take in future writing endeavors in order to bolster their existing skill set and streamline the writing process. Personally, I love writing, and aim to communicate that to my students, while also helping them to become more successful and effective writers. I am also comfortable and experienced tutoring algebra and pre-calculus, music theory, elementary school subjects, and basic Spanish. Aside from helping students to understand the material they are presented with, I like to focus on the approach students take to assignments and tests, as I believe that study habits are almost as important as the understanding of the subject itself. Whatever the subject may be, I'm happy to help tackle it!
