About Kara

I have an MEd from Kent State University and a degree in English from University of Akron. I'm currently a public school kindergarten teacher looking to add experience of educating children. My love for teaching and learning spans many years, and there is nothing like the joy of watching your students learn. I have worked with diverse populations of students, of all academic levels. I have worked with migrant students as well. Although I specialize in the education of young children, all ages and subjects are open to discussion.

I explain in great detail each lesson and each problem. I also explain how the material is applicable to their lives. I provide ample time for drilling and practice.

I am very well-versed in the national standards, and know which areas to cover. I ask a lot of questions, and have the students orally respond a lot throughout instruction.

I was educated in a very traditional school, where a lot of focus was placed on handwriting. As a result, I believe handwriting is still a skill that should be taught in schools like it was before. I am familiar with the common errors young children tend to make when making their letters, and I believe it is better to teach them the correct way now as opposed to later.

I would love to be of service to a great family wishing to enhance the education of their child!

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.

Handwriting

As a kindergarten teacher, I teach handwriting everyday. I do so by having students copy sight words, sentences, and of course, their name. I make it fun by having them use different colored markers, colored pencils, etc.
