About Kari

I have a B.A. in History from Michigan State University, and an M.S. in Historic Preservation from Eastern Michigan University. After working as a tour guide in an auto museum in Lansing, Michigan, I earned an A.A. in Theater at Lansing Community College. After moving to Minneapolis, I worked at Murphy's Landing in the schoolhouse for a year. My research skills increased my familiarity with the history of the Twin Cities and Minnesota. My final film project at the Art Institutes International was a video on the gangsters in St. Paul during the 1930s. Combining my acting skills with my historical background has helped me become a better historical interpreter.

I teach American history and writing. Tutoring involves creativity and flexibility. I have to first understand why traditional methods aren't working, and how to adjust to that individual's needs. I will ask questions, to make sure the student understands, and to keep him/her engaged.

Twelve hours notice is requested for cancellation. I will meet the student at home, or at a mutually agreed-upon location.

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.

American History

I have a B.A. in History from Michigan State University, and an M.S. in Historic Preservation from Eastern Michigan University. My coursework included classes on the American West and American Foreign Policy.

I have worked for the Curator of History at the MSU Museum, and have served as a historical interpreter at the R.E. Olds Transportation Museum in Lansing, Michigan, and at Murphy's Landing, in Shakopee, Minnesota.

My final film project at the Art Institutes International MN was a historical documentary on the gangsters in St. Paul, Minnesota, from 1900 to 1936. I have become familiar with state and local history since moving to Minneapolis in 1998.

Film

I have a B.S. in Digital Film and Video Production from the Art Institutes International MN. My computer software proficiencies include Final Cut Pro 7 and Adobe Premiere Pro for editing short films. I have experience with DSLR cameras, which shoot both film and still photos. Audio equipment with which I am familiar includes audio recorders, boom microphones, and lavalier microphones.

Video Production

I have a B.A. in Digital Film and Video Production from the Art Institutes International MN. I have used Final Cut Pro 7, Adobe Premiere Pro, After Effects and Photoshop. My internship was at Bloomington (Minnesota) Community Access Television, at which I ran the switcher and audio, set up and took down the set for public programs, and filed paperwork. I try to keep things simple when explaining how to use video programs, because a student needs to understand the basics before he/she attempts fancy visual effects.
