My son's tutoring experience with Karina was different from any other he had experienced. She was not only patient, but clearly dedicated to uncovering the roots of the obstacles and roadblocks he faced in understanding the material. She helped him to learn better study skills and understand his own learning style. He told me she was great at figuring out different and creative ways to teach him concepts where he had hit a mental roadblock. And she was finally able to convince him that repetition and practice, practice, practice are the keys to success in math. He also enjoyed working with her and looked forward to their sessions together. I know he will be able to apply the skills she taught him throughout his education. We are so glad to have found her!
I highly recommend Karina to anyone who needs help in math and science. She is the best tutor I've ever had. She never let me down since day one. I met with her for a month or so and I improved my math skills. She has a very unique way of teaching. She really know what she's talking about when she explain something - and it is super clear! I'm not exaggerating but my weakness has been in mathematics; Karina helped me overcome my weaknesses by breaking down complicated subject into simpler and more understandable way. I've been out of college for more than 14 years and I need to learn the basic- algebra , geometry, and most of all- word problems. It was pretty tough at first, however, Karina really helped me all the way. To anyone who needs to review their math and science, especially if you're going to take the TEAS exam- I highly recommend karina. She is a fantastic and very reliable tutor.
I wanted to offer our girls some science enrichment activities to keep them engaged and interested in science and math. I was specifically looking for hands-on science activities that are fun and exciting. Karina exceeded my expectations and our girls have loved every session with her. Karina came on time, prepared with all the materials and had the girls involved in doing experiments that were really fun. If you are looking for a professional and engaging tutor for your child, you will not be disappointed with Karina.
How often does your child have to chance to be taught in your home by a versatile, multi-lingual theoretical physicist who understands kids and loves teaching them? After several sessions this summer, our mildly math-averse 8-year-old daughter is now switched on to math. We asked Karina if she could teach our daughter math in a meaningful way--through little science experiments that naturally lead to math problems--and she has done so seamlessly. We feel lucky to have found Karina as a tutor for our daughter and recommend her whole-heartedly.
Karina is simply amazing. She's very nice, patient and explains things very clearly using practical as well as theoretical examples. She is also very easy to get in contact with and shows great flexibility with scheduling when possible. If you need any help in physics, hire Karina, you won't be disappointed!
Karina has exceeded all of our expectations for a math tutor. She tutors my daughter in Advanced Algebra Honors. My daughter had been quite confused because the teacher doesn't explain concepts well, and the textbook is apparently confusingly written. Karina has no problem, though, in explaining the concepts in a friendly and patient manner, and she knows her stuff! She has never been stumped by a question, just knows the material inside out!
Karina has helped my child fall in love with Geometry. With her patient approach, my daughter has moved up 3 letter grades. Karina takes time to review her homework (or tests), makes recommendation on where to focus, and explains the material to my daughter. She encourages her to read ahead. Karina also noticed the text book my daughter's class uses is very old and difficult to understand. She recommended another geometry book that explains concepts much clearer. Karina also shared test taking strategies. All in all, my daughter is much more confident with Geometry and is really enjoying her classes now. Her teacher has commented on how far she has come along. Thanks Karina!
Karina is an excellent tutor and our Spanish lessons are a lot of fun. My daughter is much more advanced than I am but Karina manages to challenge both of us in an engaging and joyful way and with lots of games. With some experience in teaching German to children I think that Karina's lessons are well structured and balanced and that she provides very good material for us to learn vocabulary and grammar. There is also a lot of emphasis on speaking and trying out our new skills. My daughter and I are very much looking forward to our next lesson.
My nine years old daughter loves her and enjoy her classes. She is learning a lot and she is always excited to go to class with Karina, and I am really happy since my daughter is finally learning!
Our first meeting with Karina was productive. She started with a full review to see where my son was with his understanding of past Physics lessons. She paid attention to my son's syllabus and suggested extra time to prepare for an upcoming test. I like the fact that she is managing his studies and I don't have to manage her, as I have done with other tutors in the past.
I have been taking German lessons from Karina for 2 years now. I did not know any German, however, she has brought my German speaking skills up the point that I feel confident to speak German to any German on my upcoming trip to Germany. She holds you accountable for homework that she assigns and expects you to complete it.
Great tutor - I am in Calculus 3A which is the first calc course. I did not take Calc in high school and EVERYONE else did, and I was way behind. Karina did a great job, and I'm feeling really good about the final.
We are so pleased with Karina. She works so well with our daughter and has just a great grasp of her subject matter. She is so professional in her approach and yet she has been able to establish a great rapport with a student who was not crazy about math. It is amazing to me that we could find such a fantastic tutor on the internet.
