About Kari

I am currently reading teacher for middle school students, but have working in Early Childhood Special Education and have been a 4th grade teacher in the past. I have an English, BS degree in Creative Writing and American Literature, an Elementary Education degree from Buena Vista University in Iowa, and a master's degree in Reading Curriculum and Instruction. I have worked with a variety of students throughout my career from severely autistic to English Language Learners.

At one point in my life, I wanted to be an International Business woman, and had an internship with Walt Disney World during the summer. I have also been a camp counselor on the West Coast (in Oregon and Idaho), and have taught summer school for the past 7 years.

I like to do a variety of things in my spare time, whether it's reading a good book, working in my yard, going to sporting events, or taking road trips to various parts of the United States. I have a passion for history, and finding out how things work.

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.

I am a certified K-6 teacher. I taught 4th grade for 1 year, and the last 8 years, 6th grade Reading and English. I have tutored ESL/ELL students for the last 4 years from Korea.
