GRE,

GRE

I have worked w all levels of students from those who are still taking college classes to those who have been in the professional world and haven't taken a math course in 10+ years. I have taught many students the basics as well as advanced topics up to and including calculus. I use the approach that there are multiple ways to solve a problem and there are more efficient ways to solve it under time constraints. I point out the different approaches that work best for each type of problem. Grad school and the GRE require advanced thinking and I can help you get there.

Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

Prealgebra is is foundation to a students' mathematical journey. It is usually at this stage where students either blossom or wither. I have helped 100s of struggling students overcome their fear of math and I've also advanced students to the phases where they are successful in advanced mathematics. I have coached hundreds of students through this phase, including my own children. (I currently have twins with learning disabilities each having earning an A in this enriched course). It is the best place to start tutoring in prealgebra, because if you don't grasp these concepts, the higher levels of math can be difficult.
Precalculus,

I am a mom of Special education 7th grade twins as well as having spent time tutoring several Sp Ed students. I am an executive officer of the Special Education parent group and have worked w many children of varying needs. I have successfully tutored those w ADHD, dyslexia, as well as anxiety disorders. I find that despite some areas of difficulty, these students tend to be the most hard working children and w a little bit of encouragement and guidance, can reach enormous potential.

Thank you

Thank you for explaining in ways that made sense, for providing new good habits and techniques, and for being so pleasant to work with. Thank you also for being so quick in getting back to us about scheduling.

Joe, 1 lesson with Karin

Knowledgeable

Karin did a great job at listening to my son and his concerns. She spent time with him to figure out where he was getting confused on a problem. She was able to give him problems to work on to improve his skills.

Megan, 1 lesson with Karin

Fantastic tutor

Karin immediately knew how to help. She assessed deficiencies in knowledge and inefficiency in problems solving .....both will help tremendously! Will definitely keep using her.

Janine, 1 lesson with Karin

Very Patient Tutor

Karin was patient and helpful with both of my kids—one with AP Calc and one with Honors Algebra 2. She was also accommodating with scheduling! Both kids came away after their lessons feeling better prepared for their class work.
