About Karen

I graduated from the University of Miami with a Bachelor’s degree in biomedical engineering and a cum laude department honors. I want to use my knowledge to help others master subjects that are difficult to them. I would like to assist you in filling in knowledge gaps in current subjects studied at school or to help you get ahead in class.

I have worked with students of all ages – from first grade to college adults. I have worked closely with first graders to help them improve their language literacy. I have assisted fifth graders in understanding math problems difficult to them. In college I worked as a tutor in my university and assisted students in courses including calculus I and II, chemistry, Spanish I and II, and differential equations. I also have experience advising and counseling underclassmen about university life. These experiences have taught me to recognize the uniqueness of each individual and their learning process. I will be able to adapt my teaching method to best assist you.

When learning it is very important to make sure the student understands the foundations. Mastering foundational knowledge will allow students to build onto this knowledge base and will enable them to improve on their own later on. After students have a good grasp of the basics, I test their understanding with examples and practice problems. If they cannot complete the problems, I try to not give the answer straight away. I lead them to the answer by asking necessary questions. It is important for students to understand and grasp the problem on their own. This way they will understand and retain more. When the students successfully understands, I give them questions that require a bit more critical thinking. Repetition and practice is vital to retaining and mastering skills and topics.

As a biomedical engineer with a distinction in pre-med, I love learning. I'm very comfortable offering help in math, English, and various sciences. You can trust my competency in the subjects I'm offering as well as my ability to communicate and teach effectively. Most importantly, I am a very patient person. I get along with all age groups, and I will most likely get along with you. Successfully teaching others and transmitting my knowledge is very fulfilling to me. I hope I can assist you in your learning process.

I am also a fluent Mandarin Chinese speaker who has a passion in photography. I can happily assist anyone who is interested in learning basic Mandarin or photography.

Thank you for your interest in my post. Feel free to reach out to me with any questions!

Karen is just amazing!

Karen is a very knowledgeable, professional, and patient tutor. My daughter's improvements are noticeable. Karen is always on time for the sessions and always prioritizes my daughter’s most pressing needs. My daughter improved her math grade with only one session. We will keep tutoring until she gets an A.
