About Karen

I hold a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. I am certified in the State of Florida for grades K-6. I have done SES after school tutoring in homes here in FL. Prior to moving to FL, I lived in Ohio. There, I earned my degree, and was certified in the State of Ohio. I tutored in the public schools as a Title I tutor for three years before moving here.

Personally, my philosophy is all students can achieve and I enjoy working with students on an individual basis. I also think learning can be fun and plan my lessons accordingly.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am certified in the State of Florida for Elementary Education K-6.

Phonics

In the programs I have worked with, phonics is part of teaching reading. I always incorporate a phonics lesson when I tutor. Even with older students, phonics is part of tutoring to reinforce basic skills. Since I am certified to teach Elementary Education in the State of Florida including reading - I believe phonics is part of that qualification.

Reading

Reading has always been my favorite subject to tutor. This is probably because I love to read! In addition to my college reading courses, while I was in the public schools as a Title I Tutor, I was trained in Leveled Literacy Intervention (Fountas and Pinnell). This system allowed me to better understand how students read and how to help when students are struggling. On my own, I am working on ways to incorporate what I have learned. I want my lessons to be enjoyable, challenging, and designed for each individual student. My main objective is for the student to make progress because they are learning to enjoy reading.
