About Karen

In graduate school the classes came alive for me when the teachers gave individual feedback and showed enthusiasm for what they were teaching. They welcomed asking questions. Students need to know how to master a task to make learning a rewarding experience. That's how I teach my students.

I have my masters from Bank St. College and graduate credits from Columbia University and City College. I've specialized in teaching reading/writing in K-5 as well as early literacy skills in pre-K. My experience as a tutor has been extremely successful.

I plan creative lessons that make learning enjoyable. My lessons are based on an evaluation, so that each lesson is tailored to the student's needs. Writing, phonics, comprehension, vocabulary, fluency and phrasing are all covered. I can keep a student's attention focused if it begins to wander, and I will work with a child's teacher so their progress reflects in the classroom.

I am available for tutoring Monday-Friday, 12pm - 6pm. Required cancellation notice is 6 hours. I offer a free consultation.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught literacy in K through 6th grade as a public school teacher. During that time I tutored and worked summers with at risk students. I am certified in Reading Recovery from NYU and have 30 graduate credits past my masters degree. I taught Kindergarten reading in private school as well.
