About Karen

My BA degree is in Communication Sciences from Hunter College of the City University of New York. My training was in Speech Pathology and Audiology.

My method of tutoring readers is through the use of phonics, as I was taught. By approaching the meaning of a word phonetically, you are able to divide it into sections by sound, which enables readers to “sound out” any word, no matter how many syllables it contains or how unfamiliar the word is.

Reading has been my passion since childhood. It has enabled me to explore worlds I knew nothing about, learn about the lives and experiences of others through biographies, and become deeply involved in the exciting adventures of fictional characters.

I truly believe that the ability to read and comprehend what you read is not only a necessity in order to be successful in this world, but a skill that can take you places you never imagined. Let me help you get there.

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.
