About Karen

I am a retired teacher and administrator with over 25 years' experience. My expertise (and my heart) is in helping struggling readers. I am Reading Recovery trained and have had great success helping young and struggling readers "catch up" with their peers through one on one tutoring. I can also help your child be better prepared to tackle the STAAR test with confidence.
Children who struggle in the early years of school can lose confidence and begin to hate school. Let me help your child gain confidence by becoming an independent, life long reader.

I have an ESL endorsement, Reading Recovery certification, and years of experience teaching elementary age students.

I was a first grade teacher and have experience working with dyslexia and other reading disabilities.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught reading both as a classroom teacher and as a Title I teacher. As a Title I teacher I worked with students who were struggling with phonics, reading comprehension, vocabulary development, and writing. I have also received training in Reading Recovery (a program designed to help struggling first graders become independent readers). I have experience in individualized and small group tutoring.

Phonics

AS a former first grade teacher, I have a strong background in teaching phonics. Students with a strong foundation in phonics instruction will be more fluent readers, and in turn will comprehend what they read.
