About Karen

Hello! I have just moved to the area after retiring from Fairfax County Public Schools in Northern Virginia. I have quite a bit of experience working with elementary students for the past 25 years in Northern Virginia and Ohio. I used to be an art teacher, and then spent the last 2 years working as a special education instructional assistant. I have experience working with small groups of both general ed. and special ed. elementary students to improve their math skills for testing in Virginia. I have worked with students that are mildly learning disabled, or have been diagnosed with ADD, ADHD, Social Communication Disorder (Asperger’s), and high functioning autism. With my art background, I find creative ways of tapping into visual approaches and games to help my students with math. When I work with a student, I feel it's extremely important to get to know my students, their interests, strengths and struggles with math. I try to implement a positive feedback approach that will motivate my students based on his/her individual interests. I also like to see copies of recent exams so that I can tailor fit my tutoring to fit their particular needs.

I understand and appreciate that each of us is intelligent in our own way and we all learn differently. That is what makes our world diverse and special!

Please contact me to set up a time to meet and discuss your students needs. My schedule is flexible after school hours or on weekends.
