About Karen

Hi - I am a home school mom. I have been homeschooling my children since 2004. I began when my children were 9, 7 and 3. Now I have two college students and one 15 year old. I have loved working with my children and encouraging them to love learning. During my home school years I have also been involved in several co-ops teaching music, science, bible, geography, American history, world history and logic to elementary and middle school age students. We have spent our home school years in West Africa and most recently in Winston Salem, NC.

I have also taught in a classroom in an International School in West Africa. I taught middle school math, language arts and social studies. The classes were small - around 10 students to a class. I loved teaching in the school setting and seeing my students grow in their knowledge of the subject as well as gaining confidence in their ability to do the work.

During my years in West Africa I also taught adults English as a second language. I have about 7 years experience teaching adults English. My students were university students, professionals needing English in order to attend training seminars and conferences in their field, as well as adults taking English in order to pass the TOEFL exam.

I really enjoy working with students in an individual setting or in small groups and helping them to gain confidence and to excel in their studies.

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.

Bible Studies

I have a degree from seminary and have worked in the local church as well as overseas for many years. I am now back in the United States since 2013. I have taught my children the Bible and Church History as well as teaching in local co-ops where I have lived. I love teaching children and teenagers about God and Jesus and helping them to discover God's word to them through the Bible.

Elementary (K-6th)

I began homeschooling when my two oldest children were in 4th grade and 2nd grade. I began homeschooling my third child when she started 3rd grade. We have been homeschooling now for 12 years. Along the way I taught in local co-ops where we have lived in NW Africa and NC. I also taught Middle School (including 6th grade) in an International School. I taught Math, Language Arts and Social Studies. Currently my two oldest children are at University and my youngest is a 10th grader. I love teaching children of all ages and helping them to gain a love of learning.

Elementary Science

I am a home school mom and taught elementary science at a local co-op when my children were elementary age. I love learning and teaching about God's creation to students and helping them to see the wonders in the world around us.

ESL/ESOL

I have taught ESL (all levels) for about seven years in West Africa. Most of my experience is in a classroom with 5-15 students. Tutoring one on one would give me the opportunity to tutor specifically to the needs of the student.

Geography

I love geography and cultures. I have traveled in four continents. I have lived in Africa for a total of 11 years and in Europe for two years. Learning about other places and other cultures opens our eyes to those around us. Geography has always been central in our home school. I have also taught geography in home school co-ops and in an International School in NW Africa.

Homeschool

I have been homeschooling my children for 12 years - grades 2-12. I have graduated 2 and they are successfully attending university. One has a 4.0 GPA and one has a 3.2 GPA. They felt very prepared for their university studies. My third child is 10th grader. I have also taught in home school co-ops for many of those years.

Social Studies

Along with teaching Social Studies to my 3 children in our home school, I have also taught Social Studies to middle school children in an International School in NW Africa and in local home school co-ops in NC where I currently live.
