About Karen

Struggling with writing assignments? Analyzing literature leave you baffled? Research paper over your head? I can help high school students, college students, and even post-school adults become better writers.

Nervous about speaking in public? Wondering how to make your speeches more memorable? Desperate not to force your co-workers sit through another boring PowerPoint? I can help even the most terrified become a better public speaker.

I received by BA in English (1994) and my MA in English Education (1997) from the State University of New York at Buffalo (UB). I currently teach College Writing and Creative Writing with Empire State College, and I have taught a freshman writing class at Niagara University to regular, developmental and honors students. Starting in 2009, I have taught the Public Speaking classes at Niagara University. I have also been a professional improvisational performer since 1997--it makes my tutoring more fun!

I can teach you the skills you need to complete your current assignments and projects as well as teach you effective strategies, for both writing and public speaking, that will stick with you for the rest of your life!

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.

Public Speaking

I have taught college-level public speaking since 2009. I also have extensive on-stage experience as an improvisational performer as well as in plays and musicals. Whether you're looking to refine your speaking techniques or if simply reading this description is making your palms sweat, I can help!
