About Karen


Bio

Learning to write can change your life. I have two daughters who went to college early (age 13 and 15). I greatly impacted their academic careers by helping them learn to express themselves. My youngest is now at Yale University at age 23 as a 5th year PhD student. She earned a NASA Fellowship as well as a National Science Foundation Fellowship and has self-funded her education (She also earned her Chemistry and Math degrees from UC Berkeley.) She is currently working as a writing Tutor for...

Learning to write can change your life. I have two daughters who went to college early (age 13 and 15). I greatly impacted their academic careers by helping them learn to express themselves. My youngest is now at Yale University at age 23 as a 5th year PhD student. She earned a NASA Fellowship as well as a National Science Foundation Fellowship and has self-funded her education (She also earned her Chemistry and Math degrees from UC Berkeley.) She is currently working as a writing Tutor for Yale University. My other daughter graduated at 20 with a BS in Genetics. By enabling both my daughters to express themselves clearly, concisely and creatively, my role in their homeschool education played a key factor in honing their skills.

I am a professional photographer of 30 years and am also looking to help students learn Adobe Photoshop, photography, lighting, image composition and how to "see."

I would love to share my expertise and help your children excel. All it takes is patience, caring and creative passion.

I have worked as a home school instructor for both of my daughters. I hold my Bachelor's from Syracuse University, attended Rochester Institute of Technology and am working on my MBA through University of Phoenix. I am an American Sign Language Interpreter. I have worked as a private writing tutor for students, helping with their college applications (medical school, computer programming, undergraduate and MBA programs). I was on the parent board Mary Baldwin College. I am also an acting mentor for the Davidson Institute for Talent Development for profoundly gifted children. My eldest daughter is gifted with learning disabilities. I'm highly experienced in working with children with special needs. We went through the Lindamood Bell, Interactive Metronome and many other program to maximize progress in school.

I earned my BFA Syracuse University - in Fine / Art Photography. I have taught workshops and private students and have worked as a professional photographer for over 30 years.

It is all about passion for your craft (writing / photography / art) and about the desire to share your expertise. As a home school instructor I gained the knowledge and patience to share my talents with the younger generation. For me, tutoring it is about the desire to see my students excel. I love what I do and love to share it. Looking forward to helping you and your children thrive!
