About Karishma

Hello! My name is Karishma. I am a 2012 Penn State graduate living in the Greater Philadelphia area. I obtained my Master's degree in education from the University of Virginia, and am a former 4th grade teacher for Wissahickon School District. I hold a Pennsylvania teaching certificate for Kindergarten through 6th grade, and would love to be of help to students who may need some extra instruction after school. I love working with young students and getting them to where they need to be to feel confident in their own abilities. I am familiar with PA Standards and Common Core Standards, and use these as guidelines for my instruction. I was an instructor at Kumon Learning Center, an after-school program for students, where I taught early reading and beginning math skills to very young students. I am very patient with children, and I pride myself in pushing students to try harder and produce even better results than they believe were possible. With my constant positive reinforcement, I will be the perfect tutor for your child, whether he/she needs extra help to catch up with school work, or even supplemental instruction and resources to challenge your child. I look forward to working with you to help provide the help your child needs! Hello! My name is Karishma. I am a 2012 Penn State graduate living in the Greater Philadelphia area.

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 obtained a B.S. in Elementary Education from Pennsylvania State University in 2012, and an M.Ed in Curriculum, Teaching, Learning from the University of Virginia this past May 2013. I also hold a Pennsylvania teaching certificate for K-6, granted in 2012. Upon achieving my teaching certificate, I passed all of my Praxis Tests required to be certified to teach elementary school in the state of Pennsylvania.

Elementary Math

I used to be an instructor at Kumon Learning Center, where I taught math to 4-6 year olds, as well as gifted students who were a year to three years ahead of their grade level. I was always a strong math student, and this translates into my instructional skills in mathematics. I am able to break things down, no matter what the subject matter in the curriculum, and explain them for students to understand.
