About Karen

After graduating with a GPA of 3.89, I'm looking to earn some extra money for my student loans by doing something that comes as naturally as breathing to me. Teaching others!

I have been tutoring since kindergarten, since I was the only one there who could read. I continued to help my fellow students through my school career and afterward. I am currently home schooling my 11 year old son, who is a grade ahead and has ADHD. In addition to having a strong academic career, I have a knack for finding a way to explain something in a way that a particular student can understand. I am also quick to see when I've lost you and I'm ready and able to adjust to your speed and learning style. I am happy with teaching students of any age, and I have experience with lots of different learning styles. I believe that any student can be taught, and it is up to the teacher to find the best way to reach that particular student. I ask only that my students be prepared to bring their best effort and an open mind.

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.

Algebra 1

I have been tutoring Algebra 1 and 2 for more than 20 years, to many different students with many different learning styles and different ages.

American History

American History is something I enjoy immensely. My husband and I have spent a couple of vacations in Williamsburg and we love spending time at reenactments and museums in our spare time. I always did well in this subject, because history is the story of how people lived, and that is fascinating and engaging. My husband has a particular fascination with colonial, revolutionary, and civil war history, particularly as it pertains to food, medicine, and armaments, so I have absorbed a great deal of information in those particular areas.

C++

C++ is an important requirement of my current college major. I received an A in the class at Devry and I use C++ in classes and labs in most of my senior level classes.

Computer Programming

I have programmed computers in many languages including C++, Java, Assembly, and Basic. I am comfortable with flowcode, psuedocode, flowcharts, and algorithms and I am comfortable with all programming structures.

Electrical Engineering

I am currently a senior at Devry with a major in Electronic Engineering. My current GPA is 3.92. I have been known to help my classmates to understand various formulas and concepts.

Linear Algebra

I now have a Bachelor's Degree in Electronic Engineering Technology, having graduated with a 3.89 GPA. My math classes were straight 4.0 throughout. I have a complete understanding of the subject and am capable of explaining linear algebra using multiple learning methods.

Microsoft Outlook

I use Microsoft Outlook everyday at work, not only for the email features, but also for the calendar. I regularly use a lot of the features that most of my coworkers don't even know exist.

Violin

I studied classical viola for 12 years through the New York State school system and then with Delaware Music School. I spent 1 season playing for the Dover Civic Symphony Orchestra, second chair. The viola and the violin are substantially the same instrument, and I am completely comfortable with either one.

Voice (Music)

I have perfect pitch, and I was a chorus member throughout my school years and was frequently a soloist. Our high school choir won numerous awards and I have not forgotten any of the vocal exercises my instructor used to make us all better singers. The fact that I was drilled on how to properly fill my lungs when in high school actually was a huge step in helping me to overcome childhood asthma.
