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.

Couldn't have passed my Calc 2 class without her

I took an accelerated Calc 2 class over the summer at my university after not taking any math for 3 years. She is the reason I got an A (for reference I got a C+ in Calc 1)!! Math is so overwhelming to me and she made it so simple and was so amazing and patient with any questions I had. Best math tutor I've ever had.

A very knowledgeable, friendly, and responsive tutor

On short notice, Kara was in contact very quickly and was able to assist me in preparing for my final. In our review session, Kara and I were able to cover a lot of ground. She provided really great, simple explanations for difficult concepts and was understanding if I expressed there were things I did not know. I would seriously recommend Kara as a tutor for Calculus. Thank you Kara!

Very patient

She is very patient and has aided my son a lot with this college class. He says she is very patient and good at walking him through the steps. He finds the sessions extremely helpful.

Knowledgeable and Caring Tutor

Kara is a wonderful, caring, and patient tutor. She takes the time and communicates well with my son. Her knowledge of calculus is great. I recommend her to anyone who needs help with high school math.

Nisha, 18 lessons with Kara

Awesome

Helped son prepare for his IB calc test. After just a few sessions, he had a much better understanding of calc in general and was able to answer a question hardly anyone else was able to answer because of her prep and “simple” approach to calc. Great job!

Great tutor for pinch hitting exam prep - pre-calculus

My daughter needed some 11th hour extra support in preparation for a Pre-calc test at school so I reached out to Kara and provided her with the sample problem set ahead of time to make the most of their session together. They were able to review various trig functions my daugher was struggling with. She ended up doing better on the exam than she thought she would and Kara gave her that extra confidence and some tools she needed to take the test. Highly recommend.

Great Teacher!

I have been studying with Kara for a couple years now across multiple math subjects, and I have to say she is one of the best tutors I've had. She does a phenomenal job of teaching difficult materials and abstract concepts at multiple levels of complexity depending on your needs. She is very capable of finding your weak points and improving them. If you need a good math tutor, I highly recommend Kara.
