About Karen

I am passionate about language and education, and believe that everyone can succeed with their education. I love to help people reach their learning goals, and believe one-on-one learning can be very beneficial to most. In college I tutored Biology for a year, so I do have experience with tutoring. Right now my focus is language learning, specifically English as a second language. As I am in the process of improving my Spanish, I have insights into the language learning process, and different methods and resources that may be used to assist learners. I believe language learning can be fun - it shouldn't be all about memorizing complicated grammar rules. I have a university minor in the Spanish language (yes, I know that's not English!) but learning a second language gives you a unique perspective with language learning, and an understanding of the difficulties a learner will encounter. I am in the process of getting my TEFL certification and am planning to teach English abroad next year.

With tutoring, I will help English learners improve their skills in different areas, including speaking, writing, and reading. I will assess each student to find where weaknesses are, and address those specifically with exercises designed to strengthen those skills. I can also provide resources for further study. Every session will planned according to each student's specific needs. I would love to get to know you and help you with your studies, contact me so we can set up at time to get started!

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.

ESL/ESOL

I have a bachelor's degree with a minor in Spanish, so I have experience with learning a foreign language and the struggles that accompany that. I tutored biology for a year, so I have experience tutoring students as well. I use a combination of activities to assess learners and then help with the areas that they specifically struggle with. I am also in an online class to get my TEFL certification, so I have access to a lot of resources regarding ESL learning.

Photography

I have a bachelor's degree in Visual Communication, with the specialization in Commercial Photography. I have taken number photography classes including, but not limited to: portraiture, still life, fashion, photojournalism, and studio practices. I have also had internships, one at Indianapolis Monthly magazine, and assisted their photographer on photo shoots for the magazine.

Spanish

I have a minor in Spanish from Ohio University. I tested into 300 level Spanish when I started there, and I also studied abroad in Mexico for 3 months. The past 4 months I have been intensively studying Spanish conversation, and consistently test at a B2 level.
