University of Louisville (Chemical Engineering)
University of Louisville (Master's)
I am a graduate with a Master's of Chemical Engineering degree from the University of Louisville in Kentucky. During my years there, I graded math tests in the engineering school ranging from pre-calculus to Calculus 1-3 as well as the higher courses of Differential Equations and Numerical Methods. I also provided tutoring in those classes. I was a teaching assistant in an introductory engineering class. I have also done a course in cadet teaching in which I taught math to 5th graders. I believe there is more than one way to explain math concepts so that if a student doesn't grasp the way it is presented in class, I can find an alternate way of explaining it. Math doesn't have to be the daunting subject many think it is; it can even be fun! I am a graduate with a Master's of Chemical Engineering degree from the University of Louisville in Kentucky.

$90/hr for two students simultaneously (I reserve the right to decline to tutor joint sessions if I feel it is impairing the learning process.)
My daughter was was struggling with her Algebra II/Trig class and after a couple of months with Kara, she just received an 90% on her latest test. I can't believe the difference. Kara is patient and goes at my daughter's pace. She is always willing to put in extra time if my daughter requires a little more instruction.
Always a good session with Kara. She really helps me identify the problems and slow down and get all the details.
Kara is an excellent tutor! She explains math very clearly and with ease. My daughter looks forward to her lessons with Kara. Her grades have improved and she even likes math now. Kara has a great gift for teaching and we feel very grateful to have found her.
Kara is great! My daughter's grade started improving after the first session. She explains things the way that make sense and makes sure her student understands.
Kara has been working with my children for two years. She is dependable and flexible with my kids changing schedules. She is great on teaching them concepts, helps with their understanding the homework, and always does review with them for upcoming tests.
My son is struggling with geometry and this was our first lesson with Kara, but it won't be our last. She was patient and helpful. My son initially resisted the idea of a tutor but was smiling and happy after the lesson, saying that Kara really helped him a lot and explained things in a way that made him understand. He seemed quite relieved at understanding the concepts. Kara is also very sweet and nice and he liked her personally.
Second lesson with Kara went great. My son is feeling very empowered about understanding geometry and says he 'looks forward' to his trig test now that he understands how to do the work. Thanks for this go to Kara.
As of Sept 2012, Kara is now helping my older son with Calculus. Again, she is prompt, patient, good at explaining difficult concepts, easy for him to relate to and helpful. He says that he understands things a lot better after the tutoring sessions. I would recommend Kara highly.
I am so happy we found Kara. My daughter was struggling with her Algebra 2 class after her second week of school. Kara worked with her and after one session, my daughter had a smile on her face! She said Kara had a way of explaining it to her that made sense and did not make her feel stupid. We stepped up tutoring to two days a week and I feel confident that my daughter and Kara are a great team.
I would recommend Kara without any hesitation. She is prompt, patient and respectful.
Nice girl, trying hard, did not really got feel of what kind of tutor she is, did have some schedule problems which she did not want to handle with patience, I would say for the experience, not being cooperative, and rate she is asking - not worse it!
My son recently got a 4 year scholarship to Berkeley, and Kara was a huge part of that happening! Math was his worst subject, but with Kara's help, his math grade improved a lot, and he did much better on the ACT. I don't know how this would have happened without Kara. She's patient and encouraging, and with her help, he got a much better understanding of Math. I would highly recommend her to anyone!
Kara is a natural. She is great with math and works well with her students! She is really encouraging and is very good at explaining things so kids can understand. Highly recommend!
Kara has been doing a wonderful job tutoring my son. She is patient and has a great teaching style that my son understands.
I can tell my son feels more confident and his grade in math has gone from a D to a B. Very impressed!!
If your child is having issues in math, contact Kara and you won't be disappointed.
Since my son began tutoring sessions with Kara, he has gone from a C in math to an A. He told me that he's "no longer afraid of math." Kara is very patient and explains things in a way that my son understands.
Kara was excellent with my daughter who is a junior in high school and struggling with pre-calculus. In the first lesson she took Lizzy through a review of the math that leads up to what she will be encountering this year. Lizzy was so relieved that she was able to follow and understand. Clearly, Kara is a perfect fit for a student with low confidence in math.
Kara has been tutoring my daughter for almost a month now and we are extremely pleased. Kara questions rather than simply giving answers. Moreover, she assesses and decides when to move on to the next topic. She is friendly, flexible with scheduling and overall a wonderful tutor. I am a high school teacher with high expectations and Kara measures up.
Wonderful so far - only had her once - but daughter was very impressed and said she explained things really well! Looking forward to her help again. Purchased a discount package in fact, with using her help solely for Pre-Calculus!
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
