About Kara


Bio

I am Kara! I graduated with distinguished achievement in high school and then moved on to a four year university to study kinesiology. Going through school I always needed a little extra clarification to make sure I was understanding everything. I also needed extra help in certain areas and I rarely got the kind of help I actually needed. I understand the need for a little extra help and make myself available for questions and do my best to ensure that students understand the topic before...

I am Kara! I graduated with distinguished achievement in high school and then moved on to a four year university to study kinesiology. Going through school I always needed a little extra clarification to make sure I was understanding everything. I also needed extra help in certain areas and I rarely got the kind of help I actually needed. I understand the need for a little extra help and make myself available for questions and do my best to ensure that students understand the topic before moving on. It is easy to teach a student one particular way of learning something but it is persistence and willingness to explain in as many ways as you need to for the student to fully understand that makes a great teacher or tutor.

I have been tutoring english and math for about three years now. I can help with any grade level of English, and am able to help with any math up to the 8th grade level as well as geometry. I am also a substitute teacher for the state of Texas and substitute teach for all grades.

My goal is to help students get a better understanding of what they are learning in school so that they can succeed and continue their education. I am always available to answer questions if the content is confusing and I will always do my best to explain it in several different ways until it is understood.

I tutor prealgebra, elementary math, and geometry.

I am always available to tutor and will work with the student on times and days of tutoring sessions. I respond quickly and make every effort to be as approachable as possible.

Elementary Math

Growing up I have always had a passion for math. Learning new concepts and strategies intrigue me and I love teaching it. I am a substitute teacher for all grades of math and am qualified to tutor many different levels of the subject ranging from elementary to high school. I work with the students to find the best way that they learn, and then explain the topics in different ways if one way does not seem to be working. The best way to get students to understand you and work with you is if you do not make them feel like they are not smart or that they can not learn it. Positive attitudes provide much better results than negative attitudes and I strive to show everyone that we can all find a positive attitude towards math.

Algebra 1

I am great at math and especially love algebra. I work as a substitute teacher and always have fun teaching algebra to middle and high school students. It takes time to learn but once you understand it, it makes everything else in math much easier.
Geometry,

Geometry

I have taken geometry in high school as well as college and did very well. When I substitute in high schools I typically substitute math classes and help when possible. I spend a lot of time in geometry classes and I feel as though I make an impact on their learning for the better.

I have always been interested in math, and have always loved learning new things and new ways of working problems.
