About Kari

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!
