About Karen

Working in small groups or one on one with children has taught me that children thrive and learn with that more focused attention. I love to learn myself and when I see connections made in a student's mind, I know I have done my job and it is a great feeling. I believe it is important to have a lot of trust between teacher and student and a level of comfort and challenge. Knowing my students and their abilities and challenges helps me to use different teaching methods to foster success.

I have worked with children from pre school through 8th grade, including students with learning disabilities and emotional challenges. I find that patience and compassion go a long way toward goals we have set together. I have a flexible and variable schedule since I work in various school districts. I am willing to work with families on making sure we have a schedule that works for both of us.

I'm a K-6 Certified Teacher.

I would love to meet you and see if we would be a good fit! I understand that there are many issues contributing to learning challenges and believe we can work through them together. Sometimes that one on one work or different teaching methods unlock what is already in a child's 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.

ADD/ADHD

I have personal experience dealing with ADD/ADHD since my son struggles with these issues. I understand individual needs and have dealt with teachers and school administration in terms of meeting his needs at school. Professionally, I have worked with students with these issues one on one as a resource teacher at a private school.

Dyslexia

I have worked with students struggling with Dyslexia as a resource teacher at a private school. I also know parents whose children have been success as students, and have engaged them in conversation, as I like to learn the "secrets" and gain insight into what helps students learn. I have tutored a student with Dyslexia in reading.

Elementary (K-6th)

As a certified K-6 teacher, I am qualified to tutor students in subject areas of those grades. I have taught students from ages 3K-8th grade in various subjects. I have tutored for middle school math and reading, as well as students with particular needs.

Special Needs

As a Resource Teacher at a private school, I have worked with students struggling with many issues, including CD, emotional/social issues, ADHD/ADD, Downs Syndrome, OCD, as well as other undefined challenges. I believe I am patient and persistent in understanding what makes students want to learn and be successful, despite their particular struggles. I believe the one on one relationship fosters learning particularly well for students that need a little extra attention.
