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.

Great job!

My daughter needed help at the last minute and Kara did a great job getting her up to speed. This was a life saver.

David, 1 lesson with Kara

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Kara did a great job of helping Michael with a tough Honors Precalculus homework assignment. She jumped in immediately on a last minute first time tutoring session and made the subject matter, trigonometric function derivatives, and the meaning of them. She made it all very understandable to him.

Glenn, 12 lessons with Kara

Extremely Knowledgeable

Our daughter had one lesson and really felt more confidant. She was extremely impressed with Kara’s ability to adapt her teaching method so she would understand the material!

Lukia, 3 lessons with Kara

Great High School Geometry tutor

Kara was very patient and understanding with my daughter. She explained everything and gave her ideas on how to practice on her own. We will use her again for sure.

Gregg, 22 lessons with Kara

Fantastic

My child was struggling in AB Calc getting D’s and F’s all year--we were desperate and crammed for time. She worked with Kara for just 5 hours just days before her final and received a solid C on her final!! A vast improvement AND the highest grade she’s received in that class all year. F brought up to a C after 5 hours--Too bad we didn’t start sooner! Thanks, Kara!

Fantastic Tutor

Kara did a fantastic job tutoring my daughter for Algebra 2. My daughter was a bit hesitant about getting tutored online but after her session she said it was a 10 out of 10 as far as helpfulness.
