About Karina

Hi there! My name is Karina. I am a former teacher hoping to tutor while I save up for grad school. I have my Florida Educator's Certificate as well as a reading endorsement and ESOL endorsement from the state. I have experience with second, third, and fifth grade curriculum, but I would be an excellent tutor for any elementary grade and subject.

Because of my background as a teacher, I know how to help students meet the new Florida Standards. I focus on higher order thinking skills, which are essential not only for the new standards but for the real world. I am not interested in teaching students special tricks or shortcuts to solve problems. Instead, I give students the confidence and tools to think about what they are really being asked, and decide how to tackle the problem. I look forward to helping your child succeed in school and in life!

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 have a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from the University of Central Florida. I also have my Professional Educator Certificate from the Florida Department of Education. I have taught or student-taught second, third, and fifth grades.

Handwriting

As part of my college coursework, I had to show understanding of the differences between D'Nealian and Zaner-Bloser manuscript and cursive and prepare a lesson on one type. I also taught cursive to my second graders during student teaching. I am left-handed, so I relate to students who struggle with correct form when writing and know of several solutions to correct poor form.

Phonics

Along with my Elementary (K-6) Professional Educator Certificate, I am endorsed in Reading by the state of Florida. This means I can teach intensive reading and remediation for K-12 students. Phonics is an essential part of learning to read, so my coursework focused substantially on phonics instruction.
