About Karla

I have been working with the senior population for the last 16 years and look forward to getting back to helping the next generation of leaders. My diverse professional background is helpful in a variety of ways to help students be more successful in their organization skills, academic skills, athletic skills and even social skills. Positive reinforcement is critical to success and building confidence. Everyone is good at something and they often just need to be reminded of how lucky they are to be themselves.

I taught full-time in North Dakota before moving to Colorado. I substitute taught here in Colorado for a few years before starting my own business. I have had various business experiences since leaving the teaching field and return to it wiser and even better equipped to assist future generations with achieving their academic goals. My degree is in English but I have knowledge in several other pertinent fields of study. I can help with organization and time management as well as in completing assignments and improving current classroom success. I would also love to help any young girls with a desire to improve their basketball skills or running. I am easy to get along with and am full of enthusiasm to help anyone improve as an athlete. Private lessons are much more effective than team practices to improving athletic performance. The time an athlete puts in during the off-season is the most important time. I also offer advice in viewing actual games and coaching to monitor performance.

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.

Basketball

I coached freshmen level boys' basketball in North Dakota when teaching and was 2nd assistant to the varsity boys' program. In Littleton I coached middle school girls in the Gold Crown Program for Dakota Ridge. I have a degree in coaching from Dicksinson State University. I love the sport and played high school and college basketball.

Study Skills

I am a former high school English teacher with expertise in organization, multi-tasking and time management in the business world. Most importantly, I can help motivate and impress on a student how lost time and performance due to lack of organization can directly affect their grades and test scores. A positive attitude and the desire to succeed is in everyone. Proper study skills are one of the single most important aspects of academic success. When the stress of being poorly organized is eliminated the brain is free to function and absorb more efficiently.
