Hi,

My name is Karen and I am a Math instructor/tutor. I teach part time at Napa Valley College and otherwise supplement my income by tutoring privately. I love the challenge and satisfaction that comes from teaching. References from my students are available upon request.

I have an undergraduate degree from a liberal arts college in Iowa, Cornell College. I then received my Masters in Applied Mathematics from Colorado State University. My GPA has always been high as I am a dedicated student and loved the material!

After graduation I went into telecommunications but, after 15 years doing that, I knew I wanted to talk to people and not computers which is when I went into education. I have taught both high school as well as community college level. Again, I love the teaching experience.

Thank you for your consideration,
Karen

Approved subjects

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.

Chess

I taught my 3 sons how to play chess (now they beat me!). I assisted at the chess club at their elementary school. I can teach all of the basic moves and some strategies. I may not be the best chess player in the world, but I am a patient teacher.

Differential Equations

I have a Masters in Applied Math with concentration on Partial Differential Equations.

I have been teaching/tutoring this subject for several years.

I am confident in this subject matter.

Discrete Math

I have a Masters in Mathematics. I know this material and am very comfortable with it. I graduated with a 3.7 GPA.

I have proven my efficiency from past work with WyzAnt.

Finite Math

I have my Masters in Applied Mathematics from Colorado State University. I have taught at both the high school and college levels. Independent tutoring stimulates me.
