About Kara


Bio

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...

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. Math doesn't have to be the daunting subject many think it is; it can even be fun!

Calculus

Of all the subject that I tutor, Calculus is my favorite. It's the culmination of all the math classes that have come before, and also requires critical thinking in order to solve the more complex problems. I scored a 5 on the AP Calculus AB test while in high school and then took three additional Calculus classes in college while pursuing my Engineering degree.

Amazing tutor

My daughter is in Advanced Math class in 9th grade and has been working with Kara for a few months now. Kara is very patient and knowledgeable. She has a great understanding of various math topics. I am very happy to find a tutor like Kara.

Edward, 8 lessons with Kara

Knowledgable

My son is comfortable with Kara and she teaches the AP Calculus concepts very well. She helped clarify the concepts and the working. He has become more confident and scored very well in the extra credits. He has scored very well (100%) after he started tutoring with Kara and understood the concepts very well.

Helpful with review of materials

Kara made me feel comfortable to ask questions and she was very patient as I tried to remember what I learned in class. She helped me review all of my class materials for the midterm exam and helped me determine how to prioritize as I continue to study. She was extremely knowledgeable and easy to work with.

Kara is the best tutor for my precalculus class

Kara really helped me with my precalculus class, some concept are similar and I was confused but Kara made this chapter more easier and understandable as always ! Thank you Kara .

Olga, 4 lessons with Kara

Patient and knowledgeable

Kara did a great job helping my 7th grader understand Algebra. He struggles with focus and understanding new material and had a much better grasp at the end of the lesson. Thank you!

Great lesson!

Very helpful, we went over calculus and I learnt so much! Kara definitely made everything so much clearer in my mind, especially Maclaurin polynomials and series. Thank you!

Emily, 1 lesson with Kara

Learned more

Learned more in 1 hour with Kara than in 2 weeks of the class with my teacher. She explains how to solve the problems and the concepts and was easy to understand.
