About Karla

Through attending Central Connecticut State University I studied how to affectively teach literature, reading and writing. I completed my masters at University of Connecticut in Educational Psychology. I am a Montessori certified early childhood educator. My interest in tutoring is derived from wanting to be a part of making a difference in the education system for children. I have a passion for tutoring and love to see children develop their confidence.

I have been tutoring for elementary aged students for 10 years now. Parents have seen real academic gains through the tutoring approach I take. To overcome areas of difficulty I follow children's interests and talents. For some children I use Montessori didactic teaching materials to extend students learning. I maintain ongoing records of assessment and observation's for each child that I tutor for. I communicate with parents after each tutoring session. I can establish a liaison with each student's classroom teacher if requested. The approach that I take is inquiry based, students preferred learning style followed, overcome deficits by using strengths, sometimes utilize gifted education pedagogy.

There is often not enough instruction time in the classroom for students to understand fully concepts they are learning. Through my tutoring approach I help students develop their talents and develop more understanding from what they have learned or not learned from school. Feel free to contact me to help your children develop a passion and excitement for learning.
