## Excellent at explaining difficult topics.

Makeda, 16 lessons with KarenKaren was able to explain to my son a topic he was having understanding from his own teacher. She is patient, very clear in her teaching method. You will not be disappointed.

Before teaching math in 2009, I was a homeschooling teacher-parent to my now grown three children. Using Wyzant's online platform, I provide academic support for students in all educational environments: homeschool, virtual, hybrid, online, private, and public school.

#### Homeschool

I homeschooled my three children and tested every year with IOWA Test. For K-5, we used Abeka ELA program. We used Institute for Excellence in Writing in Middle/High School. We used Abeka Math K-5, then Saxon Math, and switched to Teaching Textbooks through Precalculus. We used a local co-op for History, art, music, and gymnastics. The IOWA Test revealed a reading comprehension issue in my youngest in Grade 5. We used a Reading Comprehension Grade 5 workbook by Scholastic and my son's reading comprehension improved.

## Great Tutor!

My 7th grade daughter really enjoyed her first tutoring session with Karen. She was very knowledgeable, helpful and patient. My daughter said she explained things in a way that was very easy to understand. Prior to the session, Karen asked for a pdf of what my daughter needed help with to upload to the whiteboard app - which was a big help - especially with geometry. After the session, Karen went above and beyond by emailing extra practice sheets. We were hoping to find a new a math tutor to meet with a regular basis and got very lucky finding Karen. We plan to continue using her on an ongoing basis. So pleased!!
