About Karla

I am a life- long learner myself and I hope to be able to in- still my life of learning in everyone I work with and come into contact with. Tutoring to me means being able to work with individuals to help them achieve their best, whatever that may mean. Every person has the ability to unlock a potential for success inside him or herself through patience, creativity, and hard work.

My experience has a teacher has shown me that every learner is different and has a different need when they are practicing a skill, whether they are prepping for a middle or high school entrance exam, learning to read for the first time or simply completing their homework, how I engage my students in those situations will be different in different situations, just like all students are different. Additionally I want to make sure that the parents of any students I work with feel that they understand what their children are working on, and so I make it a point to break down the information in a variety of ways, providing clear summaries, and updates at various intervals.

I am a qualified reading teacher due to my background and training in Lindamood Bell Learning Processes Visualizing and Verbalizing and Seeing Stars Programs, Lucy Calkins Reader's and Writer's Workshop and a variety of other programs.

During my credential program we were trained in the common core and I have been using and teaching it daily for the past 2 years.

I have worked with students with a variety of special needs, in different settings, in both a learning center environment, and at a school for students with cognitive and behavioral disabilities. I currently work at a public school and have students with special needs in my class.

I have a very high standard of myself and want to make sure that ever student and family is satisfied with their sessions. I am happy to receive feedback from you.

I understand that emergencies may arise, however, I do have a 24hour cancellation policy, but offer makeup sessions if need be.

I look forward to hearing from you, and helping your student succeed!
