About Karen

I would like to express my interest in a tutoring position. As a local resident and experienced teacher, I am certain I am a good fit. I have advanced education credentials that fit your needs, and I have successfully worked in similar positions. I would be pleased to have an opportunity like this, and feel well-suited. As a skilled teacher, with a great deal of additional one-on-one teaching experience, I would love to use my expertise and enthusiasm to assist you.

My relevant credentials include a Bachelor’s in Biology and Psychology and a Master's in Science Education. I hold a General Science and Biology Teaching Certificate, and passed the Praxis II in General Science, Biology, and Chemistry. I have 2 years of experience teaching Biology and Physical Science at the high school level in California and Stamford, Connecticut. I served as a long-term science substitute/interim science teacher for over 2 years at Guilford, North Haven, and West Hartford middle schools. I also worked at a small private school teaching multiple subjects at the middle school level for 5 months. I worked diligently at these fine schools, bringing high expectations and varied instructional techniques.

During my career I developed strategies to address all student needs; motivating them, creating active learners, and modifying and accommodating for them as needed. I pay close attention to the objectives I need to reach with my students. I deliver that information to my students in my own creative way, while monitoring my pace and their understanding, and keeping them engaged. I am confident in my lesson planning abilities, and I aim to excite my students by weaving in authentic learning tasks. I feel that providing rigorous, differentiated instruction is the catalyst for student success. I encourage student participation, and provide organization and structure.
In various positions in education field I have work closely with fellow educators as a team. I share successes and concerns. I exchange and perfect lesson ideas and assessments. Also, I understand the importance of frequent communication with parents. I can dutifully supply regular progress updates about student performance. I take any opportunity to deliver good news, and when I have concerns I make initial contact, include positive feedback and suggestions, and offer to help.

I would be excited to take on additional jobs as a tutor. My familiarity with local districts and secondary education curriculum make me an ideal candidate. I grew very comfortable and competent with the organizational structure and topics, and I am confident and optimistic about having the opportunity to take the role of your tutor. I hope to schedule a meeting soon to fully demonstrate my abilities and enthusiasm.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
