About Kari

Hi there!

I love encouraging students to become sharp thinkers and expert writers. I've had the opportunity, many times over, to watch my students grow as influential communicators. If you choose me as your tutor, you can rest assured that I will meet you at your skill level, encourage you, and push you. Your successes make my day!

I am an associate editor at the Carolina Journal in Raleigh, N.C., where I report on local government regulations, higher education policy and K-12 education issues across the state. I earned a B.S. in writing and political science at Taylor University, where I served as editor-in-chief of the campus newspaper.

I've worked at Transport Topics News in Washington D.C., and at Fox 29 News in Philadelphia, and was the recipient of several prestigious journalism awards — including three national Marks of Excellence from the Society of Professional Journalists.

I also served as a full-time writer and editor for a digital marketing group in Indiana, a professor's assistant at my alma mater, and an advisor to 60 journalism students at the Institute on Political Journalism in Washington, D.C.

I hold numerous awards and honors in writing, including the John Chamberlain Award for Excellence in Print Journalism, the Pulliam Award for Excellence in Journalism, and multiple national writing awards from the Society of Professional Journalists.

If you are looking for a tutor who will challenge and encourage you, and who will help you achieve your writing goals, contact me! Writing is what I do. Full-time. Period. I know how to make it to the top, and want you to succeed. We can tackle this together!

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.

Very knowledgeable and patient writing coach

Kari is currently coaching me as I write my first book. So far the experience has been great! Kari is very patient, and has a passion for making her students better. She is also an experienced author, which gives her an intuitive understanding of my needs as a writer.
