About Karen

My name is Karen and I am a first grade teacher in a local school district. I have a master's degree in elementary education and I am certified in reading. I have taught sixth grade for 9 years, second grade for one year and first grade in this district since 2007.

I teach math, reading, language arts, science, and social studies K-4. I have experience in teaching Fundations at the first grade level and also kid-writing. Learning should be fun and engaging to students. I thoroughly enjoy working with children and watching them flourish. I enjoy getting to know a student first to understand their learning styles and invite the parent to observe sessions to learn strategies that can be used at home.

I tutor at the Back Mountain Memorial Library in Dallas or the Hoyt Library in Kingston.

I look forward to meeting you!

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 been an elementary teacher since 1997, teaching grades 6, 2, and 1. I have taught all subjects: math, reading, science, social studies, and language arts from grades K-4. I taught sixth grade English for 9 years and co-taught sixth grade reading during that time as well.

Phonics

I obtain a master's degree in education with a reading certificate. I have been teaching first grade since 2007 and am experienced in everyday teachings of phonics with the whole class. I am also experienced in small group guided reading and RTII (response to intervention) working with children who need support in phonics.

Reading

I hold a reading certificate for grades K through 12 in Pennsylvania. I also have a master's degree in education focusing on reading. I currently teach first grade guided reading groups. I have experience in teaching reading up to 6th grade.
