Cara Hutchens

My name is Cara Hutchens. I teach the high school Literature B & D classes. I have 14 years experience in home schooling, and 15 years experience tutoring home schoolers in a co-op setting, seven of those tutoring high school English. As a youth leader at Union Grove Baptist Church in Yadkinville, I facilitate a small group for teen girls and participate in many youth activities and mission trips. I have two sons, ages 22 and 20 – one college graduate and one currently attending college, that were home schooled in conjunction with Cornerstone Enrichment.

While my primary topic is literature, my ultimate goal is to equip teens to be the best students they can be. College expectations are higher than ever, and students need to be trained in organizational and study skills, as well as academic and analytical skills. I enjoy investing in my students and helping them become better writers, thinkers, and overall students. Believing that active learning is imperative to complete understanding, I do not lecture in either of my classes, but encourage my students to be actively involved in their learning and studying.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
