About Karli

I have been a member of the WyzAnt community for nearly four years, during which time I have worked with several students of various abilities - including those with special needs - grade levels, etc. Each and every one of them has become my friend as well as my student. I love bringing passion and purpose to learning.

Prior to launching my freelance tutoring career, I spent the preceding six months as an AVID tutor with my local public school district. In the course of any given day, I have been called upon to help students (junior high and high school) with math, history, science, physics, and English questions. In the final month, our coursework particularly emphasized ACT/SAT and AP test preparation.

I love teaching, and I love getting to know my students. I consider them my peers and friends as well as my teaching subjects. I have a passion for history, but have also studied the sciences extensively. I also know American Sign Language and Spanish in addition to my native tongue (English). I am anxious to share my passion for my favorite subjects and learning in general with those I tutor.

Along with my work as a WyzAnt tutor, I am also employed as a tutor with a local school district. I help students who are registered in online courses with time management, goal setting, academic questions, and more.

I am relatively new to Colorado, where I am currently seeking a master's degree in education at the University of Boulder. As I learn, I will be able to serve my students even more efficiently than before!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have several years' experience working with children of all ages. I am familiar with Kindergarten through 6th Grade topics, such as elementary math, general sciences, reading, writing, spelling, and so forth. I have always been an avid reader and writer, especially as an elementary schooler myself.

I have recently spent several months working with Junior High Schoolers in a public education tutoring program. While somewhat outside the scope of K-6, it has enabled me to touch on and brush on subjects often first broached in the elementary school years. I have also learned to tutor these students as a peer as well as an adult role model.

Sign Language

I studied two courses of American Sign Language while a student at the University of Utah. My professor was passionate about his subject and helped us understand Deaf culture as well as actual Sign Language.

I can converse in Sign Language and have taught it on several different occasions, to groups of varying sizes and ages. I also use Sign Language at home, as my husband has also learned it. I have the advantage of having learned "academic" Sign in the classroom, and conversing with him, who knows more "slang" or conversational Sign.

I enjoy teaching Sign and have had fun helping my students learn to converse with it. It is very rewarding to be able to express yourself in many different ways.

Social Studies

I majored in History for my undergraduate studies. I have studied world history, American History, European History, Asian History, Art History, and many other related topics. I have a particular passion for American History and the Civil War, but am a believer that learning about any time or place in history should be fun and interesting!

I recently finished a 6-month stint as a public school tutor, which included all core subjects through 12th grade. My students discussed everything from beginning social studies to AP History topics. I helped them gain greater understanding of historical events rather than memorize straight facts. I also helped them prepare for upcoming relevant exams.

Study Skills

I believe everyone has their best fit for method of study. Some people are auditory learners. Some people learn best by doing; some by reading about it. The key to developing good study skills is to decipher how you learn best.

However, some standards in study skills are the same for everyone - and they are equally important. I teach skills like having a set study time, consistency, and how to maintain focus and attention.

I have spent many of the last several months helping junior high and high school students learn how to study and do their homework more effectively. This maximizes the learning that is obtained by such projects.

Anyone can be smart if they learn how to study right.

Knowledgeable, patient and friendly tutor — During our first visit with Karli, she immediately made my daughter feel comfortable and took the time to understand her needs. They got right to work on the session and made the most of the time they had together. She makes sure the student understands the material before moving on to the next subject.
