About Karen

I am an experienced teacher and tutor with a passion for helping students increase their confidence and enjoy achieving their goals. In addition to tutoring, I currently teach a variety of subjects to 6-12 graders at a private school. I enjoy working with my students, and we usually connect quickly and find the best path to success together. I customize my approach to leverage the strengths of each student and meet their specific needs.

As a student, I attended both public and private schools inside and outside the United States and graduated with highest honors as well as an International Baccalaureate diploma. I studied Liberal Arts and received a BA honors degree in History and Politics from University of London.

After university, I began a Certification for Teaching course, where I studied educational psychology, lesson planning, and the cognition of learning. I currently teach at a private school and in a one-on-one setting where I can really focus on how best to accommodate each individual. My enthusiasm for education and the subject matters I teach are contagious, and it brings me joy to share this passion with others.

In my free time, I play and write music and practice yoga, and I have been able to share these passions with my students as well. I teach guitar, songwriting, and yoga at school in addition to my main academic subjects of English, History, and Social Studies.

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.

Voice (Music)

I am a singer and song-writer with over 12 years of vocal training. My experience includes singing in national and international choirs, performing at live venues in London and Los Angeles, collaborating with a variety of musicians from different genres, and studio recording. I enjoy helping students enhance their singing through breathing and conditioning techniques; exploring approaches to tone, melody, rhythm; and developing their own personal syle and delivery.
