About Karen

My name is Karen. I currently work as a Behavioral Support Clinician at a group home. I work with young adults (between the ages of 18 and 25) that have mental disabilities. I create behavior plans and assist the group home staff with behavioral interventions. I have experience in working with Autism, Pervasive Developmental Disorder, and Asperger's Syndrome along with behaviors including anger management and Oppositional Defiant Disorder. During my graduate-level internships, I provided therapy to and worked with adolescents and children.

While obtaining my undergraduate degree, I worked as a writing tutor, assisting college-level students with developing papers and research projects. I would assist them in proofreading, grammar, format, and paragraph structure. I was recommended for this position on behalf of my English professor at the time. I loved working at this position and I am eager to start tutoring again.

I am very patient and an active listener. It is important for me to join with and get to know the student before the tutoring process begins. I take my time and ensure that the student fully grasps the material before moving forward. Repetition and structure are key.
