About Karen

Hello Parent,

My name is Karen and I have been teaching Math at one of Anne Arundel County's top high schools since 2006. My primary subject has been Geometry and I have been using the new rigorous Common Core State Standards (CCSS) since 2012 when AACPS implemented the curriculum. I have also taught Algebra and currently teach Pre-Algebra at Anne Arundel Community College.

I possess a dual certification in Math and PE. I was a Dean's List student and a Division I, All American Lacrosse player, so I have the unique understanding of the pressures of being a student athlete. I am available for personal training and/or private lacrosse clinics in addition to math tutoring.

I look forward to assisting your child meet their math or athletic goals.

Karen

Outstanding!

Karen has been a blessing! My son went from failing geometry in 8th grade to receiving a high "A" during his first semester of high school! Karen is very patient and is excellent at explaining things to my son in a way that he understands. Her knowledge of Common Core geometry is top notch. She is the best!
