About Karen

I once read a story about "a boy named Milo, who did not know what to do with himself--not just sometimes, but always. [...] And, since no one bothered to explain otherwise, he regarded the process of seeking knowledge as the greatest waste of time of all." Thus begins Norton Juster's "The Phantom Tollbooth," the book that I credit with shaping my love of learning. Anyone who accompanies Milo on his journey cannot help but learn the value of seeking knowledge. While most of us are not fortunate enough to receive a surprise package in the mail, containing one (1) genuine turnpike tollbooth and five (5) precautionary signs to be used in a precautionary manner, many of us are fortunate enough to know people who can help us seek knowledge without one.

I've always enjoyed sharing my knowledge with others. In my three years working at my college's peer tutoring center, I offered group sessions in Statistics, and one-on-one sessions in a variety of subjects at a variety of levels--such as English, Japanese, Adobe Photoshop, and general help such as proofreading, editing, and properly citing sources in written work across many disciplines.

I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Becker College, with a degree in interactive media design. I specialize in video game art and design--which uses skills in visual arts, storytelling, and balancing fun with challenge, as well as more general skills like a good command of technology and effective communication.

Perhaps my love of reading and writing comes from "The Phantom Tollbooth" as well. Reading and writing have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember, and nothing makes me happier than helping someone write something great--whether it be an essay or a novel.

I look forward to working with you, whether your goal is to score well on the SATs, make the most out of your writing class, or if you simply want to begin your journey across the Sea of Knowledge.

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.

Adobe Photoshop

My focus in video game art and design in college means I have spent considerable time in digital art programs like Adobe Photoshop and Autodesk Sketchbook. Even before that, I was acting as a teaching assistant in my high school Photoshop classes, and I'm very comfortable with the program.
