Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

English

I have always been passionate about languages, beginning with my native English. I studied English up to the highest AP level in high school and considered pursuing a BA in English. Studying foreign languages at the university level instead provided me with a greater understanding of language acquisition and of the mechanics of English. I put my skills into practice professionally when I worked as an English tutor in a middle school for one year.

ESL/ESOL

I have always been passionate about languages, and my native English is no exception. I studied English up to the highest AP level in high school and considered pursuing a BA in English. Studying foreign languages at the university level instead has provided me with a greater understanding of language acquisition, a skill I put into practice professionally when I tutored middle school ESL students in English for one year. I believe that an interactive, direct method of language pedagogy is the most effective; I employ my mastery of English in engaging conversation and instruction to the highest benefit of the student.

French

The language and the culture of France have been two of my greatest passions since I first began to study French over 15 years ago. I went on to complete a BA in French at the University of Bristol in the UK, graduating with first class honors and an oral distinction. I also immersed myself in the language and culture by working and studying in both Paris and the south of France. I believe that an interactive, direct method of language pedagogy is the most effective; I can employ my mastery of French in engaging conversation and instruction to the highest benefit of the student. I have experience tutoring learners of both English and French, and am eager to share my love of language and culture with students of all levels!

Piano

I studied piano formally under a teacher and performed as an accompanist for several years, and have continued to learn and play the instrument on my own for over thirteen years. I approach teaching the piano with a balance of patient investigation of technique and an enthusiasm for the performance of great musical pieces.

Excellent Teacher!

Karsen has been helping me with my French studies. He's extremely knowledgeable in the language. The time he takes to explain details and the patience he shows, have been a big help to me. He reinforces my confidence level and makes me comfortable with the course work I have from classes. I have really enjoyed spending time with him, and can highly recommend him to anyone who is interested in the
