About Karen

I am a firm believer that all students are capable of achieving optimal success with the right recipe of success. I have a BA in early childhood and elementary education. I am a certified teacher that has over 10 years of teaching experience. My teaching certificate is current and can be verified with the state of Missouri. I love learning and instilling a love of learning in my students.

I am patient, caring and understanding with the ability to make my students feel comfortable so that learning can freely occur. I create an atmosphere in which respect is mutually shown. I earnestly listen to each of my students to gain an understanding of how I can help them to achieve their goals.
I'm innovative, organized and I make every endeavor to make learning fun to keep my students engaged and motivated.

These are my key ingredients to the recipe of creating successful confident students who will conceivably become life long learners.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a BA in early childhood and elementary education. I am a certified teacher who has over 10 years of teaching experience. My teaching certificate is current and can be verified with the state of Missouri.

Handwriting

In the course of my 10 plus years of teaching, I have successfully taught several different types of handwriting to pre-k and elementary children. Some of which are D'Nealian, Zaner- Bloser and cursive writing.

Phonics

I have a BA in Early Childhood and Elementary Education. I have over 10 years of classroom teaching experience which has always included phonemic awareness and/or phonics in the pre-k years and early elementary grades. I have always implemented a successful phonemic awareness program which would include a student's ability to hear rhyme and alliteration among other sound related skills. In addition a phonics program which takes that skill a little further and includes letter sounds and how they work together to make words.
