About Karen

Thank you for taking your precious time to read my profile. May God work through this to help others in the area of education. I taught five years at a private school in the area of Language Arts. For some of you that are confused about Language Arts, it involves the area of English, spelling, writing, grammar, and the arts, of course. I also taught Bible studies and likewise taught in the area of old and new testaments of the bible.
English can be fun only if its understood in the simplest manner possible. I taught junior high age which includes the ages of 12-16! One on one teaching is very appealing to me personally, for I would like to be a teacher of the whole student. Writing essays is vitally important for this age group. I finished college late in life when I was well into my 40's so I know that college preparation is important for the student and it takes preparing the student early on for writing skills. In college, I observed the fact that writing was an enormous part of the curriculum. Junior high students must be prepared for writing. I can help your student in this area.
I am a teacher by heart. I would love to tutor an individual in any of these areas I mentioned above so please take the time to read my profile. Thanks once again. May God bless you richly.

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.

English

I am an adult tutor, former English teacher I went back to finish college after my family was grown. I taught lots of writing and grammar. I taught English many years, and did intense work with 7-8 graders in writing essays. Everything from persuasive to opinion essays, and the students worked through writing skills. I was preparing them for high school and ultimately college.

Phonics

I taught five years in Language Arts, and reading was the core of my teaching. English is so important. Phonics is the basis and would be able to teach it along with all the other grammar skills. Phonics displays the sounds and comprehension for the beginning of reading.

Study Skills

I am a former classroom teacher. Study skills are required for each student and taught in the area of English. Many of the skills for studying are developed early on in Junior High.

I taught junior high for five years. A key quality for developing study skills is to discipline yourself to an area that is appropriate, suitable lighting, and minimum noise for this can be a distraction.

My experience as a classroom teacher has helped me to spot the need for good study skills.
