About Karla

Hello,

My name is Karla & I am a Missouri Certified Educator with experience in many facets of education. I am certified as a Parents as Teachers Parent Educator, Elementary Education 1-8, Middle School English & Social Studies, and Special Reading K-12. I am taking the MEGA exam in September for an additional certification of Special Education. Beyond my professional certifications, I am a mom to 4 neuro-typical children and 1 ADHD child. I am very knowledgeable about ADHD through extensive research plus practical strategies that have been tried (and work) with my own child. I also am a firm believer in supporting each child's personal learning style.

My professional experience does include tutoring, but also includes working as a Parent Educator for the Parents as Teachers program along with teaching Reading, Study Skills, Composition, Teacher Education, & basic technology at the college level. I taught Title I reading to KDG through 12th grade & was certified for Reading Recovery, which is an early intervention program for struggling readers. I enjoy working with both parents and their kiddos providing great supportive activities along with encouragement to boost a child's confidence and achievement!

As a teacher of College Writing courses for several years, I see the deficits that adult learners possess. This gives me a unique opportunity to fill in the gaps that our school system is missing. This doesn't mean a child has had a bad education or teachers; rather, our teachers are tasked with so much that it's inevitable that some skills might not be as thoroughly covered as some children need. I am very experienced with assessment & being able to identify a child's weaknesses in order to specifically target instructional strategies.

I have several years of experience teaching in an elementary public school plus several years of experience volunteering and tutoring in a private school. I am both educated and experienced with assessment, re-teaching lessons, and using a variety of teaching methods to help a struggling student.

I have an ADHD daughter and husband. This gives me crucial first-hand life experience that some teachers might lack This experience has also given me great empathy for the ADHD/ADD student and motivates me to provide strategies which will enable success. This in turn will grow confidence in your child, which is usually lacking with an ADHD/ADD kiddo. I am also skilled at providing good support to you as a parent with school related issues from getting out the door on time to speaking with your child's teachers and/or administration of their school.

I would love to speak with you further regarding how I can help and be of service to your family! Please contact me and we can see if I would be a good match for your family!

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have taught Title I reading in an elementary school for 15 years and currently work as a Parent Educator conducting home visits to support parenting. I also have experience as an adjunct college professor. All of these positions have involved working with ADHD students by coaching them to succeed through specific strategies, motivation, and encouragement.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have 22 years of elementary education experience including Title I Reading, K-12 elementary classrooms, high school, and college students. I also have experience with private school and homeschooling families. I hold Missouri teacher certification in Early Childhood Education, Elementary, Middle School English & Social Studies, & Special Reading K-12. I am taking the MEGA exam for Early Childhood Special Education this fall to add this certification.

Study Skills

As an elementary Title I teacher, I have 15 years experience teaching study skills to my students. I also have 12 years experience teaching study skills for first year college students including an orientation/study skills class at a local college.
