About Karen

What I love most about teaching is when that "ah-ha, I get it now" look comes across a student's face. My second favorite moment is when the student connects the material to their real-world life, and discovering that learning about science is not only relevant but also fun.

Subjects I have taught include: Physical Science, Biology, Environmental Science, Chemistry, and Medical Terminology. I also have 10 years of experience working in the Dental field as an assistant.

In teaching science over the past 6 years, I have encountered many students who need a little extra one-on-one help. With specialized tutoring I have seen students blossom in the understanding the material and connect with the curriculum. I feel that passing the course is not good enough, let's master the material.

The methods used in making the connection is custom fitted to each student; using games, video, puzzles, art and hands on activities etc. Sometimes they are having so much fun they don't realize how much they are learning!
