I'm Kara! I have 8 years of teaching experience. My favorite part of my job is helping students discover and build upon their learning strengths in order to achieve their goals. I graduated from Eastern Illinois University with a degree in science secondary education with a specialization in physics. I have always enjoyed working with who students who need a little extra help so I decided to get my Learning Behavior Specialist certification from Greenville University. I teach middle and high school science to students who learn differently. Science, especially physics, gives students an opportunity to learn and apply math skills in new ways. I have experience working with students who have ADHD, anxiety, dyslexia, Autism, auditory processing disorder, specific learning disabilities and more. I adjust my techniques to meet the needs of my students and my students learn strategies that work for them.

It is perfectly normal to feel intimidated by the ACT math section but after we work together you will feel more confident and be able to do your best. I will help you discover what you already know, learn strategies to maximize your time on test day, and work with you to acquire new math skills that you may need. Preparing doesn't have to be a daunting experience - I promise we will have fun along the way.

There are so many opportunities in science! I find science fascinating - however, I know sometimes it's not always great in school. I majored in science secondary education with a specialization in physics. This means that I am highly qualified to teach science at the middle and high school levels. No matter your level - introductory to advanced placement I can help you. After I learn more about you and how you learn I will break what you are studying down into parts that are easier for you to understand. We will build on what you already know and I will show you techniques to help you be successful in the future. After all, science is really cool and it should be fun to learn! Don't get discouraged!

Learning which study strategies will work for you is a process. I have 8 years of teaching experience working with students who learn differently at a school. I can help you find strategies to meet your goals at school. I can teach you organization skills, note-taking, spelling, review games, and much more. I can also recommend tools that will help you such as assistive technology like smartpens and programs on your computer or phone. Let an expert help you achieve your goals by developing research-based habits that are personalized to the way you learn best.

If you are struggling at school or are worried about getting ahead I'd love the opportunity to work with you. Please contact me with any questions you may have and to schedule lessons.
