About Karen

My passion for teaching and tutoring comes from my desire to ignite in each student the love for lifelong learning. When I graduated with honors from Stetson University I received an award for the most outstanding graduate in elementary education. I have spent my entire career challenging myself to live up to that award. I have taught thousands of students over the years. Many of my students have come back and thanked me for the time I spent with them. That is what makes it all worthwhile.

My special area of expertise is teaching children to read, especially those students who find learning to read a bit challenging. As a reading resource specialist I received extensive training in phonics, phonemic awareness, comprehension, vocabulary and fluency. All that training has given me a bag of tricks to pull from when working with children with various learning styles and needs. I am available to tutor as well as teach student who are being home schooled. As a certified teacher in the State of Florida I am highly qualified to teach any subject from preschool through 8th grade.

I am also very creative and love to guide students to produce amazing projects, book reports or just about anything a teacher assigns them. Through a combination of hands on activities, research and lots of discussion I am able to lead student to a deeper level of understanding of their subject matter.

Please contact me so that we can meet to discuss your individual needs. I am here to serve you as you embark on your voyage of lifelong learning.

I am eager to share my knowledge and talents with you as you continue on your path of lifelong learning. To learn more about my background and how I may be able to serve your needs please contact me.
