About Karolyn

I have found my purpose in life and I am loving every minute of it! I work as an English instructor for international corporate executives and their families. I offer personalized language instruction for all levels and all ages. I have a B.A. in Linguistics, so I love to use those skills when teaching with a focus on semantics (word meaning), pragmatics (sentence meaning), and phonology (sounds of language and accent reduction). Ever wonder why we get on a bus, but we get in a car? Why does the /t/ sound like a /d/ when Americans say daughter?

I have my TESL certification and I also tutor many people from around the world online. I enjoy learning from my students as much as they learn from me. It's fascinating to learn about all the different cultures while sharing American culture in return. My favorite part about tutoring would have to be catering my lesson plans to the needs of the student. Everyone's needs are different and we all have different strengths, weaknesses, goals, personalities, and learning styles. My mission is to discover all of these and use them to help you achieve your dreams.


TESL Certification, Business English, and Public Speaking.

Allow me the privilege to work with you and we will not only meet your goals, but exceed them!

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.

Public Speaking

I have a background in sales and I used to give sales presentations regularly. I was also an ambassador for my local chamber of commerce, so I am quite comfortable sharing my expertise in this area. Currently, I instruct international corporate executives on giving presentations in English. With my background in linguistics I can also share my knowledge of paralinguistics (pitch, tone, and intonation) and kinesics (body language).
