About Karen

My experience helping children with their education has spanned many years. I have taught elementary students in grades K-5th for 17 years, subbed in middle school, taught an intervention reading class and taught high school cooking classes. I have had the joy of raising my own children and helping them to succeed and go on to college. I love working with kids of all ages! I have had experience with ADD and ADHD children and understand the patience required to help them learn.

I recently graduated as a volunteer CASA - a court appointed special advocate to mentor children in the foster care system. I currently hold a valid California teaching credential.

I love to see the spark in a child's eye when they learn something new! I am patient and care about each of my tutored students.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you to succeed!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Cooking

I have a supplemental authorization in Home economics, which allows me to teach cooking for K-12th. I taught cooking classes for high school students in the public school system.

Elementary (K-6th)

I possess a current clear multiple subject K-12 credential. I have taught for 20 years in my own classroom.
