About Karen

Greetings future friend!

I have had wonderful experiences in tutoring - everything from helping struggling students who were in danger of not graduating, and had fallen through all the cracks, to assisting foreign students with their writing skills, to cheering on elementary age kids who simply needed to be listened to and encouraged along with humor and warmth and a firm but kind approach.

While I have also worked as a 1:1 aide, a substitute teacher, and in special needs classrooms, I find the most reward in tutoring, as I get to tune in to each students learning style and areas of challenge, and fit myself to their specific needs. My listening and intuiting skills are excellent, and my grade point average as a student myself was 3.8. I graduated Phi-Kappa-Phi (top 2%) of my class with my BA in English, and graduated with honors from the 2 year photography school I attended.

I count myself blessed to have had many wonderful and inspiring teachers along the way - from first grade, through college, and I firmly believe in the difference that a keen, compassionate, inspired teacher can make in the lives of the students they touch.

Currently, I am a yoga teacher and aspiring writer. I miss working with youth, and have high hopes that you will choose me to foster the mind of your student in need!

Many thanks, Karen
