I have thirty years of teaching experience including middle school, high school and college level Spanish. I also have clear credentials in Spanish, French, and Social Science: History minor. My international living experience will make language or history learning for you FUN as well as productive! My teaching techniques will be geared to helping you find your learning style. You will see improvement in your ability to retain and apply information. I will also help you get over language-learning and test-taking anxiety.

I am also an excellent writer with eight years of experience as a speech team coach. I can help you edit and improve any speech, whether it be for competition or for class. I love working one on one with students to prepare them academically and to give them self-confidence and encouragement. I have a passion for languages, patience with my students, and ability to encourage and bring out the best in my students.

I can give students effective test-taking techniques in reading. I am experienced in administering the PSAT and have excellent skills in time-management and test-taking techniques.

My credentialed minor is in Social Sciences, History. Also I have lived and traveled extensively abroad. Recently, I have participated in continuing education in French by taking an immersion course in Quebec City last summer and an intensive ten-week review course through Alliance Française this past fall. This spring I took another intensive immersion course at Accord Language School in Paris. I am a lifelong learner and will inspire you to be one also.

If you are struggling academically, get help now. My motto is "You can do this!"

Best Spanish Tutor!

We love Karen's enthusiasm. She is patient and teaches with clarity. She prepared our daughter for the Spanish AP exam thoroughly. Our daughters love her!

Ashvin, 34 lessons with Karen

Excellent AP Spanish resource, works well with both older and younger kids

Karen knew how to prep my daughter for the Spanish AP test. She was clear, direct and concise. Her accent was excellent. She also worked very well with my younger daughter. Overall she is very friendly and knowledgeable.

Lisa, 36 lessons with Karen

Extraordinary teacher and person

I can review Karen after just one session with my daughter and say that we will be working with her weekly throughout this school year. Karen is a kind and gracious educator that covered detailed difficult material with my daughter at their first meeting, provided guidance and instruction that was deeply meaningful for her, and provided wonderful encouragement and support. We are grateful to know and be working with Karen!
