About Kara

My bachelors degree is in Speech, Language and Hearing because I worked with deaf children and nonverbal students. I have a Masters in Special Education from Temple University. I am a special education teacher of 12 years in both Philadelphia and New Jersey. I have taught life skills, reading skills (phonics and sight vocabulary), math remediation, task skills and general learning disabilities through 6th grade. I have also run after school tutoring programs in state test prep and homework assistance.

I have tutored and taught many different reading programs including Wilson and Reading Horizons. My students have made excellent progress in reading. Some have jumped a grade or more within a school year.

I am very passionate about helping students with special needs. My teaching moments occur when I see one of my students succeed at even the smallest objective. Once a child has that confidence, there is nothing he or she can't do! Contact me and let's talk. I may just be the perfect tutor for your child.
