About Karyn

I have had a passion for math for as long as I can remember. I have a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering and I am now semi-retired. I teach high school math as a substitute for classes from Math 1 to AP Calculus, write math curriculum for an educational website and tutor my son and other students in middle and high school math. Recently, I have been helping students with Pre-Algebra, Algebra I and II, Pre-Calculus, ACT and SAT prep.

Throughout my long career as a Technical Professional, I used mathematical and statistical tools to analyze data and then explain the results to a non-technical audience. I found this part of my career very rewarding and it led me to tutoring.

To me, a tutor needs patience and a toolbox of options to explain/ demonstrate math concepts. Some approaches click with some students and other approaches click with others. My son has high functioning autism and I learned to use a variety of approaches to help him understand math concepts with considerable success. The most conventional approach was rarely the best choice.

I am available M-Th from 10-5 pm, Fri. 11-3, Sat. 1-4 pm and Sun. 1-4pm but earlier morning hours can be arranged on an individual basis. For student scheduling and travel convenience, I prefer to give lessons online using WyzAnt's online tutoring platform. However, if a student lives very near my home in Mooresville, NC, in-person lessons are available. I do have an 8 hour cancellation policy and will schedule a makeup date if needed.

For every student that tells me "I hate math," I say, "No you don't, you just haven't been taught in a way that works for you yet." My goal with each student is to find that way. Please contact me if you would like to learn more about my tutoring lessons and/or arrange for lessons with me. I look forward to "doing math with you!"

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Linear Algebra

I am currently tutoring a student in Math 1 and the topic for the last two months has been linear algebra. Typical results or not, her test grades have gone from a 19 to a 98 and she continues to have success on tests as we move into linear inequalities. We have covered graphing linear equations, x and y intercepts, using the point slope equation, using two coordinates on a line to solve for slope, slope as rise over run, writing Next/Now equations and solving systems of two linear equations via graphing, substitution and elimination.
I also teach Math 1 as a substitute teacher at our local high school.

Good Tutor!! — Karyn has helped my son who is 8th Grade become more confident in algebra-1, she is patient and makes sure he understands a concept before moving on.
