About Karen

I am a certified English teacher looking to maintain my fingers on the pulse of education while also hunting for a job (in this very tight market). My background is in language and linguistics. I have spent 7 years teaching Latin and have just returned from two years of teaching in Las Vegas, Nevada. I am the mother of two children: one who will begin graduate school in September, and one who is entering 8th grade.

It is my wish to enable students to recognize their own strengths while helping address their weaknesses.

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.

ADD/ADHD

As a former middle school English teacher, I have worked with students who were diagnosed with ADD/ADHD. Also, as part of my studies towards my Masters degree, I have studied this learning disability. These students need very clear directions and deadlines with strategies to help them see a job to completion.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified English teacher with an expertise in reading strategies and grammar.

English

I possess a permanent New York State teaching certificate in English grades 7-12. I have fourteen years of English teaching experience at both the middle and high school level.

Study Skills

I can help students study for tests and organize their work to maximize their ability to remember the work they have learned. As a middle school advisor, I worked with students both individually and in groups to find methods of study that best suit their learning style. For example, some students are auditory learners and need help using that learning style to study.
