About Kara

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! I am a graduate with a Master's of Chemical Engineering degree from the University of Louisville in Kentucky.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

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.

Kara is awesome.

My daughter was was struggling with her Algebra II/Trig class and after a couple of months with Kara, she just received an 90% on her latest test. I can't believe the difference. Kara is patient and goes at my daughter's pace. She is always willing to put in extra time if my daughter requires a little more instruction.
