About Karen

I love teaching and working with students of all ages, finding creative and fun ways to help students learn and engage with the subject. I focus on conversational skills and pronunciation rather than only grammar. I enjoy working with students needing extra help with a Spanish or ESL class as well as adults interested in learning or improving their conversational skills. I've lived/worked in small villages and worked in large organizations, so am comfortable with informal as well as professional levels.

After college, I taught English for a year as a volunteer in a small village in Costa Rica, and went on to a 12 year career in International Development in Latin America. I later started an art business, running a studio and store in Kingston NY, and teaching small business classes to artists and entrepreneurs. I now run my business from home and sell online and at local markets, so my tutoring schedule is flexible. I'm happy to meet at your home, my home (Uptown Kingston), or a library or coffee shop.

I look forward to hearing from you!
