Greetings,

I'm Karen. I was an award-winning print journalist with 30 years experience in newspapers and magazines (now, I'm afraid, the Titanics of the career world).
After being laid off three years ago, I re-trained as an ESOL and Basic Literacy Tutor and worked at the Sarasota Literacy Council in Florida. While there, I also earned an advanced certificate as a tutor-trainer, which means I can teach and certify volunteers to work with teenagers and adults who need help with English speaking, writing and reading skills.
American by birth, I was educated in Ireland and England, and spent long periods abroad. In Dublin, I worked as theater critic for the venerable British trade journal "The Stage and Television Today." I also taught Journalism to adult students in a 2-year London City and Guilds degree-granting program in Dublin, where more than 95 percent of them passed their final examinations.
Writing remains my greatest passion; and communication, my central vocation, both for their ability to enrich lives, and nurture a degree of global understanding that may help to heal our world.
