Palomar College Learning For Success


Hi, I’m Carrie, a San Diegan who went to college in Massachusetts, and took a detour to live (“back to the land” style) in Canada and Vermont, before coming home to my native city. I am a former high school English teacher, and for eighteen years I taught everything “writing” from creative writing and expository writing, to AP Literature and Composition. I write poetry, and I understand the bumpy road of drafting, rethinking, and revising. But what is most important to me as a tutor, is to help each of my students discover and refine their own unique writing voice.
