About Karen

I have 17 years of public and private teaching experience in a multitude of disciplines. I have bachelors' degrees in Psychology, Elementary Education, and Special Education, with my experience spanning elementary school through twelfth grade as an English teacher in both regular and special education. I earned my Master of Arts in Teaching in 2006, and am currently enrolled full-time in UNH's Master of Social Work program with intentions to start my own clinical practice in the future.

Additionally, I have scored the SAT writing section and the Texas State writing assessment for both 4th and 7th grades for Pearson as an independent contractor. My students have done exceptionally well on state assessments in both writing and reading in courses I have taught. I have specialized in test-taking strategies, focus and relaxation techniques and mental exercises, reading comprehension, and written expression.

Students with repeated struggles to improve their score on the SAT have demonstrated success with my techniques. I have had students with 100 point increases on their reading and writing combined sections, exceeding their personal goals. I can offer support in Reading, Writing, English, SAT Writing, SAT Reading, Vocabulary, Test-taking strategies, and Literature.

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.

Writing

I have 17 years of teaching and tutoring experience, and have taught grades 3-12 in both public and private schools. Most of my experience has been in English/Language Arts and writing. I have scored the writing samples for Pearson Inc., the company that administers the SAT. Additionally, I have held teaching licenses in North Carolina and New Hampshire in regular education, special education and English. I help students prepare for both the SAT and ACT, and am currently working towards certification as an Executive Skills Coach.
