About Karen

Hi,

I'm described as a good "explainer" by friends and family. I know math; I know the math that you are studying; and I know how the math you learned before connects to today's lesson.

Teaching in public school, I am used to breaking down all subjects (including calculus) into their most basic parts. Many times, math looks hard because all of the little tricks and simplifications that a teacher can take when they know math. I may know that the variable "x" is different from the multiplication sign "x" in scientific notation but I realize that they look the same to you.

Math classes today are more about thinking and applying than just crunching numbers. I will give you a safe place to try out this "thinking out loud" and help you find ways to participate in class that won't let you look foolish.

I hope this brief introduction will encourage you to choose me so we can start increasing your math skills.

Thanks.

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.

Karen answered my panicked plea to help my son through the rest of the year after learning, with short notice and after booking lessons, that his regular tutor would be on vacation until the end of the school year. This was Karen's first session with my son. He said she helped him have a very solid understanding of their current material and he is feeling really good about his ability to do well i
