Overall excellent tutor. She was quick to respond to email, was easy to get in touch with in addition to being extremely accommodating with respect to meeting times. Karen was very friendly and nice.
She was very through in explaining concepts and practicing different SPSS commands. I enjoyed the lesson, and will be definitely going back for more lessons.

"Grad School Statistics (Course Work or Thesis/Dissertation)"
SAS is one of several software packages I use for statistical analysis. If you know another package, converting to SAS can be a bit challenging. It is like another language in how the logic is presented, so getting some help for learning it can be quite helpful. Once you know it, it's VERY POWERFUL. I love using SAS! I especially love the ability to use their MACRO language to shorten routine algorithms that you are going to do a lot of. This can be VERY HANDY. ... More

"Elementary and Adult Level Tutoring"
Hello there! I am a twenty-four year old who loves to read, write, sing, and learn. I love working with kids and teenagers and have many great tutoring experiences in NYC.

"Effective English, ESL/ESOL, and TOEFL Tutor"

Depending on what each student's native language is, tutoring ESL may have varied paces. Students whose native tongue is a romance language will often have the easiest time in picking up English due to the languages' similarities, wh ... More

"Inspirational and Friendly Math, Science, and English Tutor"
As a tutor, our job is normally secondary to the teacher's. The teacher's job is to cover a certain amount of material in a given amount of time, making sure all students do their best. The tutor's job is to go over this material with usually just one student and further elaborate on this material. Sometimes, tutors realize that a particular student may be incredibly intelligent but may not organize notes well or know exactly what to material to focus on. That is where tutors can teach study skills. Study skills may include knowing how to read and outline technical textbooks or speed study Pow ... More
