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.

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. ...
