"Carolina's knowledge and empathy is evident from all angles. She is a role model for parents who want to preserve confidence and self-esteem in their children."
Martin and Sarah and daughter, aged 11.
"Carolina’s delightful and positive approach focused on identifying our son's strengths and recommending teaching strategies for his school. She provides a reassuring presence for beleaguered parents."
John and Lisa and son, aged 7.
"Carolina has been very supportive throughout our journey
of identifying our sons learning issues. This includes
underachieving and executive functioning issues. We have been hard
pushed to understand how this should be managed. Carolina has
suggested strategies for home, and has helped us to understand how we
should work with the school and teachers that are involved in our sons daily
& school environment. Carolina is thorough, professional and can
communicate in ways that parents can understand. She is
able to pull from a wealth of resources and information. We
really appreciate all the support she has offered to us and we are now seeing
positive results at home and school. We are more confident in being
able to manage our little boy appropriately and with less stress."
Al and Carl and son, aged 7.
As an author, teacher and lecturer, Carolina commands expert, cutting edge knowledge in her field. We are delighted with the invaluable input which she has now been providing for a considerable number of years to our Secondary PGCE course. Carolina’s sessions are rich and authoritative, drawing upon a huge body of research. She complements theory with an amazing array of classroom strategies and activities. Her examples of techniques for use in Modern Foreign Languages have been a particular bonus for us. Carolina’s sessions are highly interactive. She forms an easy, instant rapport with her audience, keeping the students engaged and spellbound throughout her sessions. She has also followed up by e-mail to provide materials and suggestions in response to trainee teachers’ questions. Her input is truly outstanding and I cannot recommend her highly enough.
