About Kari

I have a Master's degree in Linguistics from George Mason University, which tops off a lifelong love for language. In addition to graduate education in TESOL, I have been teaching and tutoring English on and off since 1994, to both adults and younger students. I also have a background in translation and interpretation. I personally empathize with those who come to the US without fluency in English, as I once moved to a country without knowing the language. I know what it feels like to struggle personally, and what it feels like to watch your child struggle. Let me help you overcome the barriers that keep you or your child from feeling comfortable using English, and performing to your potential.

My linguistic background, fluency in and/or familiarity with Latin-based, Semitic, and Germanic languages, and travel to over 35 countries give me insight into why a student is making his/her errors. This allows me to tailor lessons to an individual's weaknesses.

I want to help you meet your goals, be they personal, academic, or professional. Let me make it easier for you to express yourself!
