About Karen

Hello there! My name is Karen A. I graduated from The California Polytechnic University Pomona with a B.A. in Psychology. I plan on obtaining a single-subject teaching credential to teach Spanish and a multiple-subject credential to teach elementary students. I currently work at a high school as a Testing Coordinator.

I am fluent in Spanish as it was my first language.While I was in high school I was also a peer tutor. There I focused on tutoring Spanish, Math, English and various subjects. I love teaching and helping others learn. I also volunteered at my local YMCA, where I helped K-6th grade kids understand and complete their homework. I know that kids all have different ways of learning, so I like to cater to whatever the student needs. Whether it is explaining, demonstrating, repeating, or collaborating. I am ready and excited to start working with you all!
