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,

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.

Chemical Engineering

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.

Prompt and very patient — Karen S. was very quick to respond to my emails, she took me on at the last minute and she was very patient with me. I am horrible at math and Karen took the time to repeat the steps even after the tenth time of me getting them wrong. Thank you! ...
