About Karen

I have worked as a professional writer and editor, an immigration attorney, and a Spanish-to-English translator. I have a Bachelor's degree in Foreign Languages and Literatures, majoring in Spanish and minoring in Italian and French. I studied abroad at three universities in Italy and Spain and worked as a translator in Rome before attending law school and earning my Juris Doctor.

I love to help people make sense of the grammar and sentence structure of English and other languages, and I love to help people learn in general. Working as an immigration attorney, I helped numerous people pass the interview and tests required to become U.S. citizens, including people who were not fluent in English or were unable to read and write. I can provide tutoring for the verbal and written English tests and civics test for naturalization applicants. For immigrants and family members applying for other immigration benefits like U visas, VAWA, and I-601 waivers, I can help you write your personal statement or affidavit, or I can edit the affidavit and translate it to English.

I have experience proofreading college papers from the undergraduate to graduate level and beta reading works of fiction published online. I also have informal experience helping children who struggle with basic elementary math, science, reading, and writing. I have a talent for explaining Common Core math, especially since I seem to be one of the few people to whom it makes perfect sense.

Contact me if you would like to learn more -- I look forward to hearing from you!
