About Karen


Bio

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, preschool 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.

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, preschool 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 graduated as a volunteer CASA - a court appointed special advocate, to mentor children in the foster care system. I have been advocating for two children as their CASA for several years. I 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!

Very patient.

Karen helped my daughter with her math and English. My daughter is in first grade and since she’s been going to Karen, her grades have improved.

Great First Meeting

Karen was very patient. Our son has a lot of energy and this didn't seem to phase Karen in the least. I'm looking forward to many more sessions and my son could really use the 1 on 1 attention that he does not get at his Play N Learn Preschool.

Knowledgeable and makes her lesson fun

Karen has been amazing so far, her way to build a tutoring structure for our 3 year old has been a great help. We have started noticing major improvements in our son in just few weeks, She is very patient, knowledgeable and connected. She makes lessons fun so our son looks forward in seeing her.We would highly recommend her.

Remarkable Educator!

Karen has been tutoring my niece for a couple of weeks and I can attest she is a true professional. She is patient, kind, and thorough. She is promptly on time and starts to teach immediately. My niece has shown significant signs of improvement in reading. She no longer dreads having to pull out a book to read. On the other hand, she asks us to engage in “reading games” with her! Karen is helping her build confidence and valuable reading skills. They practice letters, sounds, sight words, reading, and my niece’s favorite - singing the words out loud. She also provides handouts so that we can practice on our days off. We are extremely happy with our experience and hope to continue to work with Karen. She has been the best investment in my niece's life.
