About this tutor

I have a natural gift for explaining advanced concepts in a way that can be understood by the student.  My BS degree in Mathematics was attained Summa Cum Laude with a GPA of 4.0, and I have over 20 years of experience.

What I enjoy most is seeing the "light bulb" go on when a student understands a concept that they have been struggling with.  I believe that any student is capable of learning mathematics successfully.  They just need to have the concepts explained in a way that makes sense to them.  Different methods work for different students.

  • Rajat Puri

    Karen is very detailed and knowledgeable. My daughter used her for Calculus AB and was very happy. Karen followed up with my daughter after the session to answer any questions that she had.

  • Annette Galazka

    I loved the way Karen explained to me the material. She not only told me how to approach the problem but also made sure that I can understand the concept. She explains everything in simple words and checks for understanding often. Awesome and patient tutor.

  • Hanka Kirby

    I thought Karen was great! She was knowledgeable and comfortable to be around. The whole session was productive, and she even emailed a worked-out solution of a problem we couldn't figure out after the session. Would highly recommend.

    Karen tutored my two sons throughout their high school years. I could not have been more pleased with the results. She is truly committed to seeing all of the students that she helps succeed. I highly recommend her.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I review the material submitted to me by the student that is giving them difficulty.  There is no fee for my preparation time. I then cover the material with the student, being careful to explain all concepts in a way that they can understand.  I also look for gaps in their previous learning that might be causing their current struggles.  All tutoring sessions are held at the Post Rd. location of the Forsyth County Library.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a BS in Mathematics with a Statistics minor, graduating Summa Cum Laude with a 4.0 GPA.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

$45 hourly for all subjects

$55 hourly for ACT / SAT prep


How did you get started teaching?

I was an employee of the Mathematics Department in the tutoring center for the University of North Georgia.


What types of students have you worked with?

All types.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I tutored a young man who had made in the 40's on a recent geometry exam.  He was being given a chance to retake the test the day after I met with him.  We worked together for an hour and a half, and I found serious gaps in his foundational understanding.  He made in the 80's on his second try.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Find someone who not only knows their subject but is gifted at explaining it as well.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

They should look back over the course of their study and try to figure out just where it was that they began to lose the understanding of what exactly they were doing.  Mathematics is a subject which heavily builds upon prior concepts.  A grasp of each concept along the way is necessary for success.  Gaps in understanding make moving forward virtually impossible.
