Bio

I have tutored both children and adults in various subjects such as Accounting, Mathematics, Beginning Reading and Phonics for many years.

My tutoring clients tell me that I do a good job of explaining things to them in a way that makes sense. I individualize instruction according to the student's needs, strengths, and weaknesses. I can work with your materials, and in many subjects, I have helpful materials of my own.

I have tutored both children and adults in various subjects such as Accounting, Mathematics, Beginning Reading and Phonics for many years.

My tutoring clients tell me that I do a good job of explaining things to them in a way that makes sense. I individualize instruction according to the student's needs, strengths, and weaknesses. I can work with your materials, and in many subjects, I have helpful materials of my own.

I have a passion for the Hebrew language, and have studied both Modern Israeli Hebrew (2 years at University) and Biblical Hebrew (on my own at home). Overall, I have 20 semester hours of college credit in Modern Hebrew.

I have successfully taught several children to read from the very beginning. I understand systematic synthetic phonics and how important it is in teaching children to read. I have an excellent understanding of Math, and I am good at explaining things in simple ways.

I have college credit in Child Psychology and Human Growth and Development. I taught my first child to read with a phonics approach, and he was reading by the age of three and a half years. I tutored a second-grader in Reading using a phonics approach and his mother reported how surprised she was at the big words he could read out of the newspaper.

I majored in Business Administration with an emphasis in Accounting. I have always loved working with numbers, and I am good with spreadsheets. I understand double-entry bookkeeping and other important principles of Accounting.

I look forward to helping you achieve your goals. You never know how helpful a tutor can be until you try one. Try me, you won't be disappointed.

Elementary Education

Elementary (K-6th),

Elementary (K-6th)

I have college credits in both Human Growth and Development and Child Psychology. I have experience tutoring elementary school children in reading, penmanship, and math. I taught my own children for about 10 years during which time, they were in grades pre-kindergarten to 7th grade. I have a good understanding of relevant research on how children learn, and I am willing and able to adapt my instruction to the specific needs of the individual child. I am very passionate about helping children learn, especially reading and mathematical skills.

Homeschool

I have 10 years of experience with homeschooling for grades pre-kindergarten to 7th grade. I also have tutoring experience with children in reading, penmanship, and math. I have done a lot of reading about effective teaching methods. I am also acquainted with various materials and resources available for homeschooling. I have college credit in Human Growth and Development and in Child Psychology. I respect parents' rights to educate their children according to their personal value system and religious beliefs.
Phonics,

Phonics

I have college credit in Child Psychology and Human Growth and Development. I taught my first child to read with a phonics approach, and he was reading by the age of three and a half years. I tutored a second-grader in Reading using a phonics approach and his mother reported how surprised she was at the big words he could read out of the newspaper. Since then, I have increased my knowledge and understanding of phonics, and I have located many excellent resources. For best results, phonics needs to be synthetic, teaching the child how to blend sounds together to sound out words, and systematic, covering the basic 70 to 74 graphemes (spellings) and their related phonemes (sounds).

Reading

I have a very good understanding of the many different ways sounds in English are spelled, which helps those learning to read. I also have a good vocabulary, so I can help with reading comprehension. I know grammar rules well, so I can help with the most common mistakes people make in their writing. I am not interested in helping students write essays, however, since that is an advanced topic.

Very understanding and thorough

Overall, this was a very pleasurable experience. She showed me a different approach rather than trying to just memorize the formulas, but using a more direct approach and separating the information from the problem and then solving based on the information given. She was very understanding when I became confused and would slow down and repeat and explain the information so that I could understand it in my perspective. Very well organized, and very professional. Glad I was able to work with Karen, and look forward to more meetings with her! Would definitely suggest her as a tutor to other students.
