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,

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.

Learned a lot!

Kara is working with both of my kids for both Algebra 1 and 2. She is excellent and helps both of them understand the concepts better. She is incredibly flexible, too, given their busy schedules. Really happy to have found her!

Extremely patient and intelligent

I am very ADHD and tend to get ahead of myself easily, so I appreciate her patience and her ability to explain concepts in several ways until it clicks with me. I am fond of female tutors because I am female myself and I would say she is role model for women in STEM. I enrolled into college during covid, therefore my online classes have been without lectures from a teacher - so being mostly self taught has been a great challenge. Along with the fact that I am an adult college student and I had a long gap between highschool and university. Tutoring has helped my recent grades immensely and I have had sessions with many other tutors but the amount I learned in those sessions do not compare with the sessions I have had with Kara. I have only had math tutoring sessions with her so far but she is my first choice and I intend to have sessions with her in the future for my harder courses in chemistry and math. Worth every penny.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Kara has helped be better prepare for class by fully explaining homework problems I’m stuck on and by helping me review for tests. My grade has already increased a letter grade.

Great Teacher

I can understand how Kara explains and can adapt the way Kara does the questions. She is fully recommended! Thank you, Kara.

extremely patient and accommodating

Kara is an amazing tutor and is AMAZING at exposing problems that are otherwise challenging. I meet with her twice a week and have seen a drastic change in my work!

Giovanna, 5 lessons with Kara

Covered a lot of material in short time.

Kara helped me with calculus. She helped me catch up with the things I missed due to Covid cutting out part of my school year last year in trigonometry. She was able to cover a lot of material in a short time. She is patient and definitely knows what she's talking about.

Great tutor! A+ results

Brought my daughters grades up in just three sessions. Amazing work, super patient, and did wonders for the little things holding my daughter back from full potential. Will use her services for other children and as long as everyone needs. Thanks Kara!

Mande, 24 lessons with Kara

Very kind and accommodating with scheduling

My daughter needed help with Pre-cal. Kara made scheduling easy and we quickly got a session scheduled with her before my daughter's Pre-cal test. She was able to explain some things that my daughter needed help understanding. She was very patient and kind. I would recommend using Kara for a tutor.

Elizabeth, 1 lesson with Kara

patient and knowledgeable

Kara was amazing. Going into tutoring I was very insecure because I don't remember a lot of the concepts in calculus, but Kara was very patient and actually made me believe that I might be able to do well in this class. Great tutor, I highly recommend.
