About Karen

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!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ESL/ESOL

I have taught English as a second language for over 10 years. I currently teach ESL in the Lawrence School District for students in the intermediate grades. I concentrate on grammar, vocabulary and reading comprehension. In addition, I have tutored students at the university level. These students have ranged in levels from beginners to advance students. Currently, I tutor several students online via skype.

I am an experienced and enthusiastic teacher! I love teaching English! I will help you become successful in learning to speak, read, write and listen in English.

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.

Enthusiastic and knowledgeable ESL teacher. — I am an international student studying at KU toward my doctoral degree who seeks to improve my spoken English. Karen is the best ESL tutor I have ever had.

Besides, she enthusiastically encourages me to speak my English out loud ...
