About Karin

I have a MA in Economics Rutgers, and a BA in Economics with Minors in Math and Physics overall GPA 3.75. I've been tutoring in math for over 20 Years. I've tutored all levels from early childhood through Harvard Graduate School students.

I am a mother of 3 (2 with learning disabilities), and active in my church and school community. I've worked with different learning styles and have connected higher level math to real world experiences in order to enhance the students' understanding.

I'm willing to work with your schedule and help meet your needs, whether it be a one-time exam prep or help through the entire course. Please contact me for any math concerns.

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.

ACT Math

I've tutored math at the high school and college level for over 10 years, including algebra, geometry, trigonometry, pre calculus, and statistics.
Many of these items are used on the ACT Math test and I've worked w many different methods of solving these type of test questions, from backward elimination to substituting in choices.

ACT Science

The ACT science tests more about how to use information you are given to answer questions. You need to be able to read passages and understand data to answer many of the questions. The to this exam isn't to relearn Chemistry and Physics, but to understand how to solve problems. The key to doing well is learning how to interpret the information you are given. If you are struggling, contact me for help.

Algebra 1

I have a MA in economics with minors in Math and Physics and have tutored all levels of Math from elementary through post graduate for over 10 years.

Algebra 2

I've tutored math at the high school and college level for over 10 years, including algebra, geometry, trigonometry, pre calculus, and statistics.

Calculus

I've been tutoring all levels of math for over 15 years, from elementary through calculus. I work w students of all ages, from 10 through adult.

Economics

I have both a BA and MA in Economics from Rutgers University with minors in both math and physics. I've been tutoring academic subjects for more than 10 years for all levels, from elementary through graduate students.

Elementary Math

I've tutored dozens of students over the last 15 years at all different levels of math from elementary through graduate students. I have a MA in economics from Rutgers and minors in both math and physics.

Finite Math

Finite Math includes everything but calculus. I have tutored all levels of math (including calculus) for more than 15 years. I have been successful as a tutor from algebra through Precalculus and statistics. Finite math also involves organization and analysis of data. I have done that in my previous career as a data analyst manager.

Geometry

I've tutored math at the high school and college level for over 10 years, including algebra, geometry, trigonometry, pre calculus, and statistics.

Linear Algebra

I have worked in the field using linear programming which uses the concepts taught throughout linear algebra. I have a minor in Math and have tutored all levels of math through graduate school classes. I currently am about to work w a student who is requesting help in this subject.

Physics

If your child is having a difficult time with physics, I can help them not only with the concepts in science, but also using the math to solve equations. Having a physics minor and many students who I tutor has given me plenty of experience.

Praxis

Prospective teachers preparing to take the Praxis exam can find subjects like math difficult. I help students overcome their challenges by looking at different ways to tackle these problems and that also gives them ideas on how to teach future students one day. Covering subjects ranging from decimals, fractions, geometry and word problems, I introduce many ways to go about analytical thinking and allow students to grasp these concepts.

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've tutored math at the high school and college level for over 10 years, including algebra, geometry, trigonometry, pre calculus, and statistics.

Probability

I've taught probability and statistics courses at the college level and have used probability in my business career as well. I've tutored math at the high school and college level for over 10 years, including algebra, geometry, trigonometry, precalculus, and probability and statistics.

PSAT

I've tutored math at the high school and college level for over 10 years, including algebra, geometry, trigonometry, precalculus, and statistics. Many of these items are used on the SAT test and I've worked with many different methods of solving these type of test questions, from backward elimination to substituting in choices. I'm currently working with a student who is working toward being a National Merit Scholarship winner.

SAT Math

I've tutored math at the high school and college level for over 10 years, including algebra, geometry, trigonometry, precalculus, and statistics. Many of these items are used on the SAT test and I've worked with many different methods of solving these type of test questions, from backward elimination to substituting in choices.

Statistics

I have tutored statistics at all levels including Harvard Graduate students. I have taught statistics as an adjunct at Rutgers NCAS. I have worked in the field and used statistics in my field of econometric forecasting.

Trigonometry

I've tutored math at the high school and college level for over 10 years, including algebra, geometry, trigonometry, pre calculus, and statistics.

Great first tutoring session!

I met Karin for the first time today and she did a great explaining everything! First we did a basic review and then we went over homework problems that would be similar to the problems that are on my exam. I definitely high recommend her to anyone needing statistics help. What she was able to explain to me in an hour is what my statistics professor was able to explain to me over the past 5 weeks,
