About Kara


Bio

I am a graduate with a Master's of Chemical Engineering degree from the University of Louisville in Kentucky. During my years there, I graded math tests in the engineering school ranging from pre-calculus to Calculus 1-3 as well as the higher courses of Differential Equations and Numerical Methods. I also provided tutoring in those classes. I was a teaching assistant in an introductory engineering class. I have also done a course in cadet teaching in which I taught math to 5th graders. I...

I am a graduate with a Master's of Chemical Engineering degree from the University of Louisville in Kentucky. During my years there, I graded math tests in the engineering school ranging from pre-calculus to Calculus 1-3 as well as the higher courses of Differential Equations and Numerical Methods. I also provided tutoring in those classes. I was a teaching assistant in an introductory engineering class. I have also done a course in cadet teaching in which I taught math to 5th graders. I believe there is more than one way to explain math concepts so that if a student doesn't grasp the way it is presented in class, I can find an alternate way of explaining it. Math doesn't have to be the daunting subject many think it is; it can even be fun!

Calculus

Of all the subject that I tutor, Calculus is my favorite. It's the culmination of all the math classes that have come before, and also requires critical thinking in order to solve the more complex problems. I scored a 5 on the AP Calculus AB test while in high school and then took three additional Calculus classes in college while pursuing my Engineering degree.

Great tutor!

Kara is always patient and is always able to explain concepts in a way that is easy to understand. She has been able to work around our schedule and has helped boost my daughter's geometry grade. Highly recommend her for anyone looking for a math tutor.

Very helpful

Kara was very helpful to my daughter who has been struggling with Algebra 2. She said she learns more from Kara in an hour of tutoring than a whole week of math classes.

Extremely Knowledgeable and Patient

Subject: HS Pre Calculus. Kara was very helpful in explaining the concepts and working through homework problems with my daughter. We'll continue to use Kara for the rest of the school year. She's been a tremendous help thus far.

Great explanations

Kara's explanations were very clear. The session was extremely helpful. She was patient and able to explain things better than my daughter's actual math teacher.

Nicole, 4 lessons with Kara

Wonderful Tutor

Kara is working on Advanced Algebra with my daughter. My daughter missed a few concepts in class, and it became difficult for her to keep up. Kara has a wonderful way about her that my daughter really can relate to. They work very well together. My daughter likes Kara's approach and teaching style and is really getting it now. Kara has helped her pick up her grade in the class, and her confidence is back. We highly recommend Kara.

Patient and Knowledgeable.

It's been a very long time since I had been in a Math class, so her patience and her easy disposition make her an excellent tutor. She is very encouraging and takes her time explaining no matter how long it may take.
