About Karen

I have been a nurse for over 20 years in Pediatrics. During that time period I did a large amount of patient teaching about asthma, diabetes etc. While teaching the children and their parents, I discovered that I had a passion for teaching so I returned to college to achieve my Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education. I have a teen daughter who I assist with schoolwork. In the past I have assisted other children with understanding their schoolwork. I will upon initial meeting, research your child's strengths and weaknesses so that I can craft a lesson plan. I will celebrate your child's success with you.

I have been a lifelong reader. I've proofread colleagues work in the past. I write my own poetry. I also had over 100 pen pals as a teen, which allowed me to finesse my own writing skills at a young age. I am a stern believer that the more a person reads the more knowledge they will gain. I will teach a child the importance of looking up definitions when a word is misunderstood or not familiar.

I have patience and fortitude which will allow me to work closely with your child and help them to learn at their own pace. I will give them the knowledge to recognize cues in different questions which will lead them to the right answer on standardized tests. I am friendly and very outgoing. I also have the ability to listen, which many people do not possess if the child has a topic which they are not understanding.
