## Incredible!!

Clara, 70 lessons with KarenKaren can handle anything you throw at her. She explains things 10x more clearly than my professor does, and is super flexible with my schedule. Cannot speak highly enough of her!

I am a University of Kentucky and Vanderbilt University graduate with over 3000 total hours of tutoring experience over the past 15 years and I would love to help you conquer your math and economics fears! I have tutored students from 6th grade through adult learners returning to college. I absolutely love the one on one aspect of tutoring. Having taught Intermediate Microeconomics on two occasions at Vanderbilt, I found it difficult to engage every student as much as I would like to. In a...

Needlework

I have been cross stitching for over 15 years. I am currently working on a 3' by 2' project which contains over 100 colors. I have taught multiple friends and colleagues how to complete small, simple projects to give as gifts at Christmastime.

GRE,
#### GRE

Standardized test preparation is all about gaining competency across a broad range of topics and being able to express that competency in a high pressure environment. The GRE is one of the highest levels of standardized tests, so the pressure is even higher. Tutoring for the GRE, I have worked with many current college students as well as adults with full time jobs who are wanting to change careers. My test prep tutoring style involves using a building blocks method over time using a plethora of practice problems. During each lesson, I will highlight one or two specific topics to focus on as homework for that lesson. After the lesson, I send the student some practice problems directed at those highlighted topics. I then ask the student to work through the practice problems and write down anything they think will help them solve similar problems on the exam. This material they've written down is called their memorization page and is built up over time to include all of the topics in the exam. In this way, the student has a succinct summary of content that they understand well to look through and review directly before the exam. This review sheet enables the student to build confidence right before the exam, because they can think back to all of the practice they have done for each subsection on their sheet.

Algebra 1,
#### Algebra 1

Algebra has always been one of my favorite subjects to do and teach. There are always so many different ways to find the value of an unknown variable and I love that all of them always come to the same conclusion. My students always tell me that I am very good at breaking down a complex problem into small steps, and the process of solving an algebra problem lends itself well to exactly this method. I look forward to helping you or your student with their algebra skills.

Algebra 2,
#### Algebra 2

Algebra 2 can sometimes take students by surprise as it ramps up the difficulty level above that of algebra 1. I focus on taking what students have already learned in algebra 1 and showing them that they are still applying the same concepts to this more difficult problem.

Probability tutoring is all about coming up with examples that make sense to the student and then showcasing how those examples can extend and apply to many other problems. Great examples using probability are everywhere: sports, game shows, games of chance, college acceptance rates, etc. I can always find a great example that appeals to the student I am working with in order to enhance their learning and comprehension of the material.

I have always viewed trigonometry as a big puzzle. The puzzle pieces are things like the Pythagorean Theorem, the six trigonometric functions, SOH CAH TOA, and trigonometric identities. The difficult part of solving a problem in trigonometry is which puzzle piece to use at which time. I love working through the process of determining the proper puzzle piece and then putting it to use with students in order to solve complex trigonometric problems.
