About Karen

I have a great love for teaching because of its challenges and the great responsibility that a teacher has to his/her students to instill an interest and knowledge in the subject matter. Because of this, I continually strive to improve as an educator. My passion for teaching is also evident in my work as a Biology Professor at the undergraduate level, and as a Math and Reading tutor for a local learning center.

To succeed, I believe in good two-way communication between a teacher and student and my students are encouraged to actively participate in their own education. I present problems to solve and help them understand complex ideas and develop valuable learning skills that germinate into independent study.

My tutoring subjects are in Math and Biology. I teach Math in the areas of Elementary, Middle and High School Math, covering topics from Algebra (Pre-, 1 and 2), Factorization, Quadratic Equations, Graphing and Geometry. In Biology, I teach all levels of Biology from Middle, High School and Undergraduate and Graduate Biology, Microbiology, Biochemistry, Anatomy and Physiology and Genetics.

I use study materials that are readily available from school, or bookstores and websites and assign homework and assessments. I also discuss the progress of my students with their parents often.

My schedule is flexible. I am available most days and weekends, and am able to travel to meet with students.

I look forward to meeting and helping all students meet their academic goals!

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.

Biology

I have a PhD in Microbiology and work as a Biology professor teaching undergraduate Biology courses including Human Biology, General Biology, Genetics, Microbiology and Environmental Biology. I have tutored students in high school biology for Keystone exams and also for the SAT Biology Subject test.

Reading

I tutor reading comprehension and grammar to elementary and middle school students at a learning center and have been tutoring there for 9 years.

Very knowledgeable and a great tutor!

Karen tutored my 9th grade daughter for the SAT Subject Matter test in Biology. Her ability to teach my daughter concepts was outstanding! Excellent communication and interpersonal skills. I would highly recommend her for any tutoring needs in the sciences and math. She even helped my daughter with an upcoming Algebra 2 test. We used Karen a number of times and can't thank her enough for her know
