About Karen

Hello!

I have 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, then spent 2 years working as a special education instructional assistant in Virginia. I am currently an elementary assistant in Buncombe County. I have experience working with small groups of both general ed. and special ed. elementary students to improve their math skills. I have also worked with students that have mild learning disabilities. With my art background, I find creative ways of tapping into visual approaches and games to help my students with math. 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 based on his/her individual interests. I also like to see copies of recent exams or work 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 and I'm available after 1pm in the afternoons, evenings or on weekends.

My references are teachers that I currently work with to support their students with math. I can give their information out at your request.

I prefer to meet in a library for tutoring.
