About Karen

I love to teach. I have been teaching on the college level, part-time for 9 years. I, along with my business partner, have a consulting practice working with business owners to achieve the results they want. I have been self-employed for 20 years, working with organizations and individuals to improve performance.

Young students inspire me. They are the future. I would love the opportunity to share what I know, combined with what the student knows, to help them achieve their dreams.

Prior to my self-employment, I was the Chief Operating Officer of a large health care facility. I worked my way up in the organization, returned to school to get my undergraduate degree, followed by my graduate degree. This was all done while raising a family and working full-time.

I have worked with students in particular over the last 9 years, helping them start off in their careers. Students find me easy to talk to, always ready to help them, and a great resource even beyond graduation.

I have used these products for over 30 years!

I teach business courses at a local university. I have been teaching and training adults in their workplaces on such things as communication, conflict, management and leadership. I will often bring colleagues into the classroom to give the students "real world" opportunities.

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.

Business

I have been a business owner for 20 years. I live business every day. I have taught business courses at the university level for the past 9 years. I train adults in management and leadership, among other areas.

Career Development

I have been teaching and training for over 20 years. I currently teach at a local university as an adjunct professor. I have had an interesting journey, having gained my undergraduate and graduate degrees while working full-time and raising a family. My students (past and present) rely on my experience and expertise to help guide them through their own career exploration.

Marketing

I minored in Marketing while at Bryant University. I was responsible for marketing while the COO of the health facility. Further, I am an entrepreneur at heart, and have conducted the marketing function for my own businesses.

Public Speaking

I am frequently asked to speak before groups of 10 - 50. I understand basic adult learning styles and make my presentations lively and fun. Additionally, I have been teaching in the classroom. How you present is how you are perceived!

Writing

As I mentioned, I have taught all types of business courses. My upcoming freshman at RWU will be writing a business plan. This is complex and requires quite a bit of writing. I have over 30 years of working as a COO, a business owner, teacher, and more. Writing succinctly is central to my work.
