Hello, my name is Karen. I am an experienced tutor and teacher. I earned my CELTA certificate and I have been teaching English as a foreign language in Russia for the past 2 1/2 years. I have helped several of my students to pass their TOEFL exams. They have not only passed, but passed with high marks and on the first try. One of them will be starting her graduate work at Miami University on a full scholarship in August. The other is now a doctor in Russia. I have also taught in a classroom of up to 19 students.
My students tell me that I make learning fun. I do require that my students work hard, but I believe that the best way to learn anything is if you can enjoy the work while you are learning.
I am a degreed teacher in Elementary Education, having received my degree in 1988.
I have been teaching children and adults for the last 13 years on a volunteer basis.
I was living in Russia for the past 2 1/2 years. I taught classes there in English and trained students in TOEFL and CAE.
