Hello! My name is Kari and I am a certified science teacher with four years of teaching experience. I am currently on an extended maternity leave and would love to help your child succeed in science along with other areas such as study skills. I have experience working with all ages and ability levels--I like making the learning process fun for the student because I believe that students succeed when they are fully engaged. But I also believe in a rigorous learning process that holds the student to high expectations. When expectations for children are elevated, the child will meet them.

As a teacher I created lessons and assessments that enabled me to check for understanding--this is something I am willing to do as a tutor as well. I also spent four years integrating ACT reading and science strategies into my lessons. Students of mine have shown tremendous growth on their ACT, particularly in science. I have many techniques that are easy for students to grasp and implement on their next test.

I can also help your child stay organized with his/her school course load and work tirelessly to ensure that they improve in their classes. I am available to tutor during the after-school hours and on Saturdays.

I look forward to working with you!

Awesome!

Kari helped me so much just within an hour and I feel confident for my exams this week! She really explained things well and helped me understand it a way my professor does not do. She also gave me very helpful tips for studying in the future. I plan on having Kari be my tutor for the rest of my science classes!

Great tutor

Kari is a great science teacher. We used her for the ACT Science and she is excellent. I would recommend her for high school science. She arrived ahead of time and my daughter is very happy with her teaching style and knowledge. She was well prepared for our hour together.
