About Karen

I have been teaching elementary education for sixteen years. First, I taught elementary school in Massachusetts for fifteen years. Now, I have relocated with my family to SC and I am currently teaching fifth grade in elementary school. I am certified in elementary school in both SC and MA. I have experience in teaching and tutoring in grades 2 thru 6, and in all subject areas. I have received professional training in Everyday Math, Literacy by Design, Junior Great Books, Jacob's Ladder...

As a teacher, I am patient, organized and motivated to assist my students to feel successful as learners. As a tutor, I have many resources to reinforce students skills. I also aim to improve students confidence and self-esteem in all subject areas.

As a parent of three teenagers, I understand that a tutor often provides needed assistance to parents who want to provide additional support to their child's education.
