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.

Very knowledgeable

Karen was very warm and made my son comfortable with working with her the first time. She took time to send him prep work. Will definitely call her again.

Kimberly, 2 lessons with Karen

Looking forward to continue our lessons

Karen helped my daughter with some basics in general biology. My daughter's first response was: "Karen made things simple and I learned more in the first session than most of this semester lectures". She looking forward to more sessions to improve her grades and more importantly understand the material.
