About Karen

My name is Karen, and I've been teaching and tutoring for more than 6 years in 5 countries. I love teaching, and I like to laugh. I'm currently studying at UNO for a Masters in education. I didn't like school when I was young, and if I wasn't good at something, I had a really hard time focusing! I understand how miserable it can be to struggle with school subjects or test preparation that seem totally meaningless (even when everyone is telling you that its not!) I am a very patient person, and I make sure my students are comfortable, and confident when they study with me. School work doesn't have to be painful! My specialties are ESL/ESOL, English, reading, writing, and phonics, but I love history and Chinese language too.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Common Core

I taught common core when I was a lead teacher for 4th grade (2 years) and 2nd grade (1 year).
