About Karen

I have taught middle school grades in NYC for 26 years. I have been a regular substitute teacher on Martha's Vineyard Island, Mass. for the past 7 years. I specialize in working with students who have difficulty in literacy and reading comprehension. Many times these students are at risk of passing reading skills on grade level. I provide intense instruction to small groups as well as individuals. Students master skills by identifying main ideas, facts (or opinion), inferences, sequential order of events and vocabulary development. These skills are mastered while using current subjects/texts that students' study, in their classrooms. Lessons are tutored correlating with students' interests also. Supplementary materials can (and will be) used to master necessary skills.

The thing I love about tutoring is I have the satisfaction of contributing to my community. It's an opportunity to positively impact the lives of learners, while aiding to alleviate the fear of making mistakes.

I set clear goals and objectives for each lesson. I provide a fun and motivating atmosphere. I link lessons to everyday life. I provide immediate correction of errors. I integrate cultural knowledge and skills.

I am a certified K-8 teacher in NYC and Massachusetts. I have taught students with below grade level achievement (by as much as 4 years) and assisted them toward mastering and passing the lessons in their assigned grade.

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.
