About Karen

I have taught in the public schools in West Virginia for 29 years and one year at the college level. My certification is in special education, but I have passed the tests to qualify for highly qualified status in all subject areas for special education students. I am also able to work with regular education students in a variety of subject areas. I am a firm believer in learning styles and teach toward a student's preferred method of learning. My greatest pleasure is seeing a student master the skills needed to progress to a higher level or skill. All students have the ability to learn if the material is presented in a way they are able to understand it.

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.

My teaching certification is for Prekindergarten through Adult in the area of special education. The skills needed to teach that range of courses would cover those needed for tutoring elementary students.
