About Karen

Tutoring came to me through one teacher and three college professors while I was earning my college degrees. In all four cases, one or more of my fellow students needed help with their studies and my teacher and professors, having seen the quality of my work, asked if I would consider tutoring these students. At first I was hesitant but after deciding to accept the challenge, I found that I truly enjoyed helping my classmates gain an understanding of the course material and succeed in their studies.

In reviewing my past work experience as it pertains to tutoring, I worked for a number of years at a major corporation. As part of the job, I was commissioned to write a training manual for new hires and to teach them to become proficient with the technical aspects of the business. Also as part of their training, I taught them how to apply that knowledge they learned to successfully help customers utilize our product and service. In essence, I was tutoring students long before I thought of what I was doing as tutoring.

While I do not have teaching credentials as yet, I have recently taken steps towards earning a master's degree in education. Thus far, I've earned degrees in journalism, political science and paralegal studies. Having begun with a love for writing and an idea for a book, the first degree I earned was in journalism. In my spare time, I also wrote for the college newspaper. Soon thereafter, I earned degrees in political science and paralegal studies since an understanding in both areas is necessary for me to have the expertise I need to complete writing my book. I earned these degrees later in life than the average student but I'm proud to say that I graduated summa cum laude with a perfect 4.0 GPA. I would like the opportunity to help you succeed in your studies. If you would like, I will also proof read your work and make recommendations as I deem are necessary.

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.

Public Speaking

I am qualified to tutor students in public speaking because I've not only taken public speaking in college but passed the course with an "A." I've also trained others in a workplace environment which requires one to speak well. Additionally, I've organized and run meetings at college and in the workplace. In order to speak well, one must have the ability to organize thoughts and write well. I have written professionally and for pleasure.
