About Karen

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 21 as a 4th 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.

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!
