About Karen

I am an experienced teacher who is passionate about helping every student find their unique path to success. I believe in fully engaging lessons and lots of laughter! My expertise is working with students who have struggled and need to experience success. Multi-sensory and systematic, explicit instruction are keys to effective learning. I would love to discuss how I can become part of your child's positive learning experience and build their confidence.

Having obtained certification as a Wilson Reading System tutor and training in Orton-Gillingham Advanced Multi-sensory teaching, I am uniquely qualified as a reading teacher. My current position as an Academic Support Instructor and work on a local public school district's Dyslexia Committee provides me with the most current research-based and evidence-based instruction techniques.

I thoroughly enjoy working with my students. I am a certified K-5 Elementary teacher with years of experience. I am currently working as an Academic Support Instructor for Elementary Reading and Math.

Helping students who have struggled to learn to read and spell is my passion. I am a certified Wilson Reading System tutor and have completed training in the Advanced Orton-Gillingham Multi-sensory Instruction. My position on the District Dyslexia Committee of a local public school system has provided me with the latest research and evidence-based instructional methods for helping my students.

I look forward to speaking with you to discuss your child's needs. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns. I look forward to helping your child rediscover the fun in learning while building their confidence and showing them they can be truly successful!

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.
