About Karen

I am a Reading tutor for first graders. My college degree is a B.S. in Management. Six years ago I took a class to learn how to be a reading tutor to young children. Upon completion of that course which was given by the Mental Health Society on Staten Island, I started tutoring first graders at a public school in my area. All the students that I tutor are children who are on track to be left behind because they cannot read for their level. Their first grade reading level ranges from ~A to C.

My tutoring practices consist of the following: reviewing first grade vocabulary words, reading first grade material to the student and playing word games. As the tutoring process progresses--6 to 8 weeks, --my tutoring practice changes and I have the student read more to me than I to them. While tutoring I constantly evaluate where the child is having difficulty. Is it reading comprehension? Is it the inability to sound out the word? Wherever the child is having difficulty I change my tutoring to concentrate on that area. All the students that I have tutored have graduated to the next grade.

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.

Reading

I have been tutoring first and second graders for six years. All my students were falling behind in their reading level before I started tutoring them. By the end of the year, they were at reading level for their grade. My educational background consists of a B.S. Degree in Business Management.

Karen Is Awesome!

Karen has been tutoring my son in reading for over a month and he has already jumped two letter grades. My son has gained confidence in his reading and I am so proud. I have observed Karen's patients and how she keeps my son engaged. I am most pleased with how happy he is on tutoring days… he has ants in this pants waiting for Ms. Karen to come! Karen plays a memory game with my son at the end o
