About Kari

During my 4 years of undergraduate work, I had taken numerous History courses ranging from US History, World History, World War II, the 1960s, Race Relations, etc. I received a Teaching Fellowship through my undergraduate college during my senior year. In that role, I assisted my professor in teaching his US History classes while working on my degree. I earned the program award for the degree I was pursuing, which was a Social Science degree. I also had a mini- biography on Margaret Thatcher published in an encyclopedia on the elder George Bush.

I have graduated from Utica College with my Masters in Education: Adolescent Education. While my degree was focused on 7-12th grades, I worked on my 5th and 6th grade extension. This meant that I had to take the K-6 Methods classes in Science, Math, Social Studies, and English. I am working on my NYS Teacher Certification.

I took a job as a Pre-K teacher at a local daycare center. While there, I taught a group of Pre-K level children using the NYS Common Core Curriculum for Math and ELA. I then accepted Substitute Teaching positions in the Westmoreland School District (grades 5-12) and Oneida City School District (K-12). I enjoy stepping into classrooms when teachers can not be there. I take my role seriously as a Substitute to ensure that the students are still on their learning schedules, and the teacher does not fall behind. Currently, I am subbing at Rome Catholic School in Rome, and I have just accepted a Pre-K positon for the new 3 year old UPK classroom.

I have a 2 daughters. My older daughter is 6 years old, and in 1st grade. My younger daughter is 4 years old, and is in Pre-K. As a parent, I understand how important education is to my children. I want nothing but the best for my girls, and that is what I would promise you for your child.

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 spent the past year as a Substitute Teacher in the K-6 setting. I have been able to step in for teachers who needed to be out of the classroom, and teach the required material for the students to learn effectively.

Flute

I have played the flute for over 15 years. I was always a first chair flutist in school bands. During college, I was one of 2 flutist in a small band that I even helped compose music for. I have been able to play numerous solos in my years playing in school bands. I have even marched for football games and parades.

I have taught some of my friends how to play the flute, and will teach my daughter when she is old enough to play. This is my favorite instrument.

Reading

I am proficient in Reading and Social Studies (which contains a lot of the same skills that Reading requires). I have stepped in for Resource teachers at the High School level to help in Reading. I was a Master Student and Teaching Fellow at the College level for 1 year.

Study Skills

As a Teaching Fellow in college, I had to tutor U.S. History students. I taught a class each semester on study skills and study habits. To prepare them for their reading assignments, midterm, and final exams.
