About Karen

I graduated from the University of Puget Sound with a minor in Mathematics, then I went on to get my Master's degree in Secondary Education with an endorsement Secondary Mathematics. I have been teaching for 4 years at a local high school, working mostly with Algebra, Geometry, and Algebra II, though I am comfortable teaching at any math level.

I have always loved tutoring, though I did not really enjoy math when I was in high school. I thought it was just memorizing a bunch of algorithms, and it wasn't until I learned more about teaching math that I found my passion for it. Now that I see the "hows" and "whys" behind the mathematics, I developed a love and respect for mathematics.

In my experience teaching high school, I have helped struggling students gain confidence in their math abilities, and this confidence yields perseverance that helps math students grow and excel like they never could have imagined. I would love to help you grow your confidence and math abilities to improve a math grade, pass a test, or just for the joy of learning more math.

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 taught Algebra I for four years. I have a lot of material for this subject, as well as a number of different ways to teach Algebra I concepts, depending on your learning style.

Great tutor with patience and expertise

She really helped me prepare for my upcoming test. She did an excellent job of providing real world examples to make the math more understandable and brone the problem down to its individual components.
