Hello,

My name is Karen and I currently teach ESL in the Lawrence School District. I have been employed here since 1998. I have worked in the classroom as a classroom teacher, as a reading specialist and as an ESL teacher.

For the past seven years, I have been teaching English as a Second Language, both in the school district as well as privately as a tutor. I have tutored students on a one-to-one basis and via skype. I have worked with beginner English speakers all the way to advanced speakers. Teaching grammar, developing writing skills, reading comprehension and preparing for English Proficiency tests are just a few areas that I have helped my students become successful!

I have discovered that I enjoy tutoring college-age students the best. I am enthusiastic and enjoy teaching English. If you are motivated and have a desire to learn English, then I am the tutor for you!

Phonics

I am a reading specialist and work for the Lawrence School District. I have received extensive training in working with young readers and phonics from the University of Kansas. In my school district, we use the Animated Literacy Phonic Program. I feel it is extremely beneficial to young readers with their reading. I help students learn to be flexible with their vowel sounds and also to realize that some vowel combinations have more than one sound.

Nice and Patient Teacher

She helped with my class materials, and I got good grades. I believe my reading comprehension and my writing has improved significantly. Also, I learned a lot of vocabulary and American expressions. Thank you Karen!
