About Karin

For the past ten years I have been very successfully working with WyzAnt students aged 5 to adult. I'm an experienced and well-qualified tutor, having more than 5000 hours of Wyzant teaching alone. I meet students weekday mornings, afternoons, evenings and weekends. I offer an introductory meeting at no charge to first determine the needs of any new student, and to explain what I provide.

I have a great deal of experience helping children and adults learn to better express themselves, both in writing and speaking. I believe strongly that the successful use of the English language depends on learning to read and write in an organized and intelligent way; the real aim of language use is to be able to communicate well in both.

I think I’ve been able to help people learn English and perfect their language skills because of my own experience learning English as a second language, years ago, as an immigrant. I’m fluent in English and German, spent my younger years raising our four children living in Palo Alto, and then pursued my own University education. I obtained two degrees from San Jose State; a BA in Humanities and a MA in US Foreign Relations; I have also two degrees from Stanford University, an MA in History, and a PhD in History of Modern Europe. I subsequently worked as a market research analyst, and in the last few years, devoted my time to teach children and adults in both English and History.

I live in Sunnyvale with my husband, and our dog. I teach only at my home, rather than traveling to yours, because here I have a great variety of teaching materials that I utilize whenever it is essential in the course of the lesson to fill any gap in my students' education and general knowledge.
