About Karen

I have 31 years of experience in teaching students reading acquisition, phonological skills, phonics, vocabulary, fluency and comprehension. I have taught reading in grades K, 1, 2, 6, 7 and 8. I have a Master's degree in education and am a Reading Specialist. I have concentrated the last 12 years of my career on the best practices in reading. I am a certified Reading Recovery instructor as well as Reading Specialist. I am currently a Reading Specialist for grades K-5. I have tutored many students, most through recommendations from previous clients or teachers/administrators who know my reputation.

I have had great success with helping students understand the reading process and gain success in school.
