About M. Karen

I have been a Spanish teacher for almost 20 years and in that time, I have helped many students on an individual basis to understand how to conjugate verbs as well as the importance of conjugation.I have also helped students learn how to help themselves in learning the vocabulary words and how to use English to help them learn Spanish.

I love the English language, too. Its literature contains many nuances that can be both surface story material, as well as deep, thought-provoking ideas and ideals.
I enjoy grammar and the Parts of Speech - which could help with learning other languages, also.

Metaphors and similes have you confused? I will help you identify the differences.
Homonyms or homophones mix you up? I can help you to easily remember which to use when.

I would enjoy teaching your child one-on-one and helping out with any difficulties he or she may be having.

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.

Literature

I know reading can be difficult for some people.
Literature is looking deeper into the story and how the author wrote.
Literature is also seeing current uses of author's ideas.

Proofreading

Proofreading is designed for checking writings in order for them to make sense to all audiences.
This includes spelling, sentence agreement, as well as proper placement of punctuation.
This is where run-on sentences need to be properly cut up into understandable sentence structures.

Reading

My love of reading is expressed in helping others to love to read.
Reading is the ability to understand words when they are put into sentences; the ability to understand sentences when they're put into paragraphs; and understanding those paragraphs on a page or in a chapter.

*Vocabulary involves not only the spelling of words correctly, but also using those words correctly within a sentence.
*Many people are unaware of memorization tricks that I have been taught and that I am willing to share.
*Vocabulary can be made easy to learn with the proper tools..

Writing

*Writing shows the knowledge and skills that students accumulate throughout the school year.
*Teachers like to see students' writings improve throughout the year and using the tools of vocabulary, grammar and punctuation to show how much progress students make throughout the year.
