##### About Karen

As an elementary and middle school teacher in Washington, DC, I taught all core subjects. As a math teacher in inner-city Washington, DC, 70% of my students entered my class below grade level. By the end of the year, 84% of my students met or beat their NWEA test goals, and 70% of them met or beat their accelerated goals. Additionally, last year my students scored in the top 10 5th grades in DC on the PARCC exam.

As a reading teacher, only 14% of my students read on grade level in August. By June, 62% were reading at or above grade level. I also doubled the number of students who achieved a Proficient status on the DC CAS. In both cases, I used various strategies to get even my lowest of readers to improve more than a year in their levels.

Currently, I am a math teacher coach in RBB and SOCS schools, and my elementary teaching license remains current. In this role I teach teachers how to better instruct students in math. While I get to teach short lessons throughout the day, I miss working directly with students on an ongoing basis. What I miss most is getting to conference with students in one-on-one or very small group settings. This is why I love tutoring! I enjoy building on students' prior knowledge, showing them that even the hardest of math problems or most difficult of novels can be accessed with just the right strategy. No matter what subject you are struggling with, I would love to help you achieve your goals. I truly believe that EVERYONE can learn, no matter how hard a skill may be. I look forward to hearing from you!
