Hi, I am Karen.
I have a Master's degree in Chemical Engineering, and have teaching experience both from being a teaching assistant in college (fluid dynamics) and being the person everyone came to for help with math and science in both high school and college. My main philosophy in teaching is showing students the overall concepts and strategies for solving problems rather than just how to solve a specific problem. This sets students up to do well on tests and in the real world when problems may deviate from what they have seen before in class or homework. I received a score of 5 on the AP tests for Calculus AB, Calculus BC, and Chemistry, and know the strategies for doing well on these types of tests as well as the SATs.
I look forward to helping you meet your learning goals,
I have a Master's and Bachelor's degree in Chemical Engineering. I was a teaching assistant for fluid dynamics while in graduate school and taught both small groups of students and one on one. I was also the go to person in my group of friends in undergrad if someone needed help with their homework.
