My name is Kari and I am just a goofball with a passion for teaching. I have been tutoring for over ten years with students of all ages and abilities. I am a current graduate student studying Environmental Engineering at CSU Fullerton. I got my bachelor degree in Electrical Engineering from UCLA.

I first started tutoring by volunteering in a 7th-grade class where I learned a lot of my tutoring techniques, mostly in the form of adorable memorization tricks. From there I tutored in the Math Lab at Los Angeles Valley College from Pre-Algebra to Calculus, I even assisted a professor in recreating an Algebra 1 curriculum. Even throughout my time at UCLA I tutored with MESA programs and other college preparatory programs for K-12 students. I am especially passionate about getting students introduced to Engineering.

Learning math is not necessarily an easy task, but I have always been passionate about helping students find their own way of learning. If you need to develop the study skills or if you are just stuck, I can help you overcome these obstacles.

I am passionate about tutoring, your success is my success. If you would like to be a successful math student let's set up an appointment.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

Algebra 1 is the foundation of mathematics so it is not a surprise that this is where I got professional training to tutor. I had worked in a community college setting aside a professor teaching math and eventually even made an impact on how the curriculum is taught.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 is my favorite classes to tutor. It is a course that many consider to be a huge obstacle to overcome in their academic career so it is important to master. At this point, math becomes a language that a student needs to learn to translate. Initially, it is important to understand that this level can be learned in many different ways so I will probably begin by identifying your teacher's method and try to connect them to your personal learning style.
Calculus,

Calculus

With an engineering degree calculus has become second nature and with my passion for tutoring, I have been able to act as a translator for many students. When I was first learning calculus I would tutor many of my classmates and since then I have never stopped tutoring calculus. It's quite a difficult subject but with time, patience, and some assistance any student is capable of deep understanding.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

Prealgebra is a matter of patience and determination. Typically a student will be taught a specific technique to approach a problem and slowly more complex problems will be introduced that challenge the initial model. I allow the student to make their own "recipe" and change it as new approaches are learned. As new steps are introduced we analyze them together to determine why they are different so deeper understanding can be achieved.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

In precalculus, a student begins to think in more abstract ways so that they may understand the Calculus to come making it important to visualize problems. This can be difficult without a deep understanding of the fundamentals. In order to begin, we will determine if any fundamentals must be reviewed and then build up to more complex problems.

Trigonometry,

Trigonometry

Trigonometry can be summed up in sine and cose which all relates back to the unit circle. I have created good techniques that help make the unit circle more concrete so that you can remember the sine and cose. With that information you can generate any other trig function that you may desire. I can also teach you to manipulate the trig identities, law of sine and cose formulas in order to get the desired answer.

Great tutor! Helped a lot to have her explain problems from my pre calc book and I plan to use her again !

We did graphs of parent functions, polynomials of degree 3 or higher and techniques to do these problems efficiently and fast! I didn't really have a plan for what to on our first session but she new exactly how to start and it ended up wonderfully.

Charlie, 1 lesson with Kari

Really knowledgeable and clear!!

Kari is great! She’s patient and explains things clearly. She also understands the material on a conceptual level which can be really helpful, especially with calculus. Absolutely recommend.

Wendy, 2 lessons with Kari

Great Algebra 1 tutor

We were so happy to connect with Kari for math tutoring! She is an engaging, enthusiastic and intuitive teacher. Kari was punctual, a great communicator and is very accessible. We will absolutely request her again. I highly recommend Kari for kids of any age.

Suzanne, 3 lessons with Kari

Excellent tutor

Kari tutored my son on Algebra I. She is knowledgeable and patient. She is able to explain in simplest way to solve a problem. My son did very well on his final exam because of Kari's expertise. I will definitely hire Kari again for future tutoring.

Amy, 6 lessons with Kari

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

My son valued his lesson with Kari, and said "it was one of the most helpful Algebra 1 lessons he has had all year!". Kari helped my son review some concepts, as well as give him some helpful tools to use in his upcoming test.

Sarah, 2 lessons with Kari

Prompt, Professional and Knowledgeable

Kari has been nothing short of great for my daughter and her need for an AP Calculus tutor. She is prompt, professional and has the ability to connect with my daughter for a better understanding of the course. We will be using Kari again for my son and his needs.

Bob, 4 lessons with Kari

Very patient tutor

Kari explained the topic well and was knowledgeable. She was able to jump right into the topic with a quick glance of the material. She was also very friendly and patient.

Glenda, 1 lesson with Kari

Knowledgable and helpful tutor.

Kari and I worked on calculus concepts like Riemann sum, integration by parts, substitution and partial fractions. She came prepared for the meeting and helped me fully understand the concepts I needed to know to complete questions. Kari is a great tutor and really helped me learn the math I needed!
