I would highly recommend Karsten as a tutor for anyone looking to improve their knowledge of math and science. Karsten helped me with my recent physics 2 (electrmagnetism) course. He quickly identified my shortcomings, and was able to provide explanations of the topics I was struggling with. Not only does Karsten posses an extraordinary knowledge base, but he is able to convey that knowledge in an easily understood manner. He would choose examples from my textbook, as well as create his own, and use them to illustrate his points. I found that not only was I understanding physics more completely, but I was actually enjoying my class as a result of Karsten's help. I think that speaks volumes for his abilities as a tutor. If Karsten was able to make a difficult subject like physics fun, then he is truly an indispensable resource. I definitely plan to enlist Karsten's help with my future courses.
Your success was entirely the fruit of your own labor, Dan! Students like you are a tutor's dream come true. You are hard-working, self-motivated and persevering. Honestly, you should consider making your own tutor profile on here for I think the student has become the master.
My daughter was in 6th grade when she started having difficulty with her math lesson plan. We knew right away that we would have to find a tutor for her, but how? I went on the internet and up popped WyzAnt. Not only was it an easy website to navigate; we found the best tutor for our daughter. She was very shy at first with Karsten, but he has a way about him that allows a student to feel smart and capable of learning math at any level. He made math easy for her to comprehend and she looked forward to her weekly lesson with Karsten. Her grade went from a high C to an A in less than one semester. She is now in eighth grade and on her way to high school with a scholarship. Karsten is still a big part of her math study program. Once a week for an hour or as long as they deem necessary, he tutors my daughter and she excels in math. He used to come to our home in Exton once a week, but we moved to Downingtown, PA. He still tutors her once a week, but not at our home, on Skype. She uses a pad that is connected to her Mac and it is amazing how easily they get it done. I am sure that Karsten will continue to be an important part of our daughter's learning team and he has quickly endeared himself with our family. I highly recommend this tutor and I give my personal endorsement to anyone who has a son or daughter who is struggling with math.
Karsten was a great tutor. He was patient, flexible, and knowledgeable. In a short time, I was able to thoroughly prepare for the math section of the SAT. Not only did my score go up substantially, but I gained a greater understanding of math overall. Karsten’s method of teaching is easy to understand and the confidence he builds ensures that you believe you can achieve success. I’ve always been a weak math student, but after working with Karsten I found that the overwhelming jumble of seemingly impossible math problems on the SAT was both understandable and manageable. I would highly recommend Karsten!
Thank you very much for being such a great student, Analise. I wish you the greatest of success, but with your work ethic, I doubt you'll have much trouble finding that.
Karsten was an awesome "find" for my son who was struggling in math. He is extremely patient and has the ability to explain difficult concepts in simple language. Karsten also had a magnificent way to challenge my son to build skills beyond the current subject matter. Not only did my son's grade in Math increase it was his highest Final exam grade at the end of the year! Karsten is dependable, extremely knowledgeable and built a great relationship with my son. I highly recommend Karsten as a tutor!!
I feel Karsten has been an excellent tutor for my daughter. He has been such a help to us, not only in bringing up her grade and helping her understand difficult math concepts, but helping her to become more confident and actively involved in her math class. She quickly went from below grade level math to excel, with A's, on a higher grade level. Karsten was positive, clear, goal oriented, had a firm grasp of the material and always kept me, as the parent informed as to how each session went and what material was covered. I am grateful, not only for his professionalism and dependability but his good cheer, personable ways and patience. Thank you Karsten!
Thank you *very* much, Mrs. G, for the testimonial. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you again for your continuing patronage and the privilege to work with your daughter. She's been a fantastic student, always attentive, committed to learning and not once have I heard her complain. It has been nothing but a pleasure working with you and your family and I look forward to seeing you all again after the summer break concludes!
Karsten tutored my son in College Physics I. My son did not have physics or precalc in high school and was therefore behind the other students in his class. This physics course was required for his major. This was a 6 week summer course and at the end of week 1, my son was flunking this class. I hired Karsten who worked with my son two to three nights a week for the remaining five weeks. Karsten not only got my son to pass physics but also gave him a good fundamental understanding of the principles of physics. Karsten is an excellent tutor and I highly recommend him. Lastly, Karsten is very reliable and dependable.
Karsten possesses all the qualities that I find necessary in a good tutor: he is patient, attentive, encouraging, accommodating and very capable in the areas that he teaches. He helped me prepare for my final calculus exam and was tireless in ensuring that I was confident with the material and able to tackle problems on my own. He was also the first person to ever make me feel as if I was a competent math student and capable of success - as someone who has always struggled with math, I was shocked to find that with some good instruction and extra attention I could not only understand the material and do the problems, but I could actually ENJOY it as well! Karsten's encouragement coupled with his careful explanations of important concepts and his willingness to meet with me frequently (and on short notice) leading up to my final exam allowed me to walk into the test feeling very confident. My one regret is not finding him sooner!
Karsten was a great choice for our 18 yr old son. We have had tutors before in their 40's and older but having someone closer to Bobby's age was a benefit. Karsten's communication skills with Bobby were excellent. Bobby is a quiet kid and Karsten was able to keep him on task and motivated. Karsten was able to recognize Bobby's weakness and help him see what parts he did not understand well. Karsten helped Bobby work through the problems himself so that he understood what concepts he needed to work on. Karsten was very easy to reach and responded to Bobby's calls and texts quickly. I would highly recommend Karsten as he was very dependable and knowledgeable.
I found Karsten through this site, I was desperately looking for a teacher who has the willingness to teach a person like me who is soo poor in Math. I was trying hard to increase my score in ASVAB to get into US Army, and I must say with all the hard work of Karsren, I made this happen. I scored 52 AFQT,
I am really happy to find this great teacher, He is reliable, consistent and patient when I do silly mistakes and ask the same question again and again.
I strongly recommend, if some one is looking to increase their Math Skill, also if some one wants to get a good score in ASVAB, please contact Karsten, He is a Math GURU!
