About Karen

I have been teaching for 17 years and love my students! I have taught 4th grade, 5th grade and 6th-8th grade. Currently, I teach 6th grade science and 8th grade social studies. In the past 17 years, I have taught all subject areas. I have tutored in the past 4th grade for iLEAP and 8th grade for LEAP. Sometimes, in the summer, I will tutor one-on-one for students who are struggling in certain content areas.

My goal is to teach students strategies that will help them figure out a challenging question or problem. There is a lot of joy watching as a student suddenly begins to understand a subject area that has caused them anxiety. I love to see their confidence in themselves grow and watch as they start feeling like a success instead of a failure. With education moving so fast today, sometimes students need just a little extra help to grasp subject matter.

For the last few years, I have taught 6th grade physical science. This classroom experience provides the qualifications needed to help 4th through 6th grade students with science.

I have just completed a Master's degree in TESOL to assist language learners with learning English. In the past, I have also taught 4th, 5th and 6th grade ELA focusing on vocabulary, grammar, spelling, writing and literature.

Do not struggle in class! There are many strategies that will help students become confident and successful students.
