About Karla


Bio

I'm Karla! I have a B.A. in English/Creative Writing and an M.F.A. in Creative Writing/Fiction. My favorite instructors at all levels were the ones who had not just exhaustive knowledge of their subjects, but a passion for them and for engaging the student. I seek to bring that level of engagement to my own teaching.

I'm Karla! I have a B.A. in English/Creative Writing and an M.F.A. in Creative Writing/Fiction. My favorite instructors at all levels were the ones who had not just exhaustive knowledge of their subjects, but a passion for them and for engaging the student. I seek to bring that level of engagement to my own teaching.

As an instructor and tutor of writing and composition, my aim is to motivate students not only to learn to communicate their ideas effectively but to cultivate a personal exploration of their own ideas and how these ideas have developed and continue to do so. Literature and composition are wonderful tools for delving further into not only the self but to the world at large and how it has become organized. By connecting the student’s individual experience with his/her role in the broader culture, I utilize literature and composition as anthropological expeditions in their own right. I learn from students as well and believe the educational process should be a collaboration between student and teacher rather than simply a one-sided importing of facts.

I've taught developmental reading/writing, composition, literature, and speech at the junior college level, and I'm also an experienced copy editor and proofreader. I can also provide a bit of assistance with French and German, should the need arise.

I welcome input from parents and other family members regarding your child's learning processes, as I believe tutoring should be a collaborative effort. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me with any additional questions or to schedule a lesson!
