About Karen

My love of teaching came from my studies of learning how we learn language! I received my Masters degree in Applied Linguistics from the University of Massachusetts Boston. This has equipped me to be effective in helping you achieve your goals in the English language, be it speaking, reading, writing or simply in study skills, resume writing or test prep.

I will enable you to gain knowledge and confidence in grammar, speaking, writing and reading English. I can help you get to the level you want.

I specialize in English Grammar, Writing, Public Speaking, Reading, Test Preparation, and Resume Writing. I have over 9 years work experience with students in these areas both face to face and online.

Are you struggling with a writing assignment, research assignment, or a resume? I can work with you bring it to its possible best form.
My aim for each lesson is for you to leave more comfortable and confident with the language than when you arrived and for you to see the quality of your language use improve.

My schedule for tutoring is 9 am-5 pm Monday through Friday. I offer online tutoring also with a more extensive and flexible schedule.
My base rate for face to face tutoring is 60$ an hour and for online it is 45$. I offer discounted rates for extended lessons and times. I provide a free consultation session where we map out and decide the goals you would like to achieve. I also require to be notified if you must cancel at least 2 hours in advance.

I look forward to hearing from you and to discuss your goals and available schedule to achieve success!

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 taught oral speaking skills to second language college students in the English Language Institute at Syracuse University. I taught there for 6 years. These oral courses were part of the intensive English training they need to pass out of at level 4 in order to gain admittance into Syracuse University.
