I'm one of those people who truly enjoys writing and helping others improve their writing skills! I completed a writing-intensive masters degree program in economics and international relations, as well as a full course load of AP and IB classes in high school. I've also been tutoring English part-time for more than three years, and was an elementary English teacher and a high school philosophy and speech and debate teacher overseas. Confidence is the greatest hurdle, so my main goal is to improve your confidence and equip you with the tools that you need to succeed independently. I'm a personable and energetic teacher!

Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or want to go ahead and schedule a lesson. I'm really looking forward to helping you!

Great Tutor!

Great tutor! Karina is a great tutor whose friendly approach, knowledge, and skill are very impressive. She makes the process enjoyable, and the time goes by quite quickly since her program is interesting and filled with exciting learning activities. She also uses wonderful learning materials which connect with the everyday experiences which language learners will need in the real world. This makes her different from those who use one-size-fits-all materials. Karina gears her materials and her lessons to exactly what we need in order to be ready to use what we learn. I look forward to my next lesson!
