About Karalyn

What makes a great tutor? Patience. Understanding. The right amount of passion, and a genuine interest in the student.

Language is a tool--writing and reading are the hammer and nails of communication in the world. I strive to help my students learn to use these tools, even when they seem foreign.

It's important to adapt and change teaching techniques to best meet my students needs as every person learns at his or her own pace. I am passionate about writing, but I understand that not everyone is, and I don't expect them to be. But everyone can be a good writer--writing is just well organized thought, after all.

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.

English

I've tutored English for over a year. I majored in literature in college and writing in graduate school. I'm passionate about the subject and understand that students come at literature and English from all different angles. I help each student find their own way to understanding English and literature.

Literature

My undergraduate work was in English literature, and I have tutored middle school through adult learners in all aspects of literature. My favorite part about tutoring literature is teaching students that there isn't a "right" answer. Studying literature is about understanding how other people think and how you think. It's about learning to reason well, and writing that reasoning out in a structured, logical way. If you can do these things (and everyone can!) you can succeed in literature.
