We all love Ms. Karen. She is very patient, knowledgeable and knows how to get a child interested in studying. My son is bilingual and he struggled with English. Ms. Karen made a wonder with his reading and understanding English words. She also helped a lot with his math. I strongly recommend Ms. Karen.

"Math Tutor Grades 1-6"
I attended Salisbury University and received a bachelors degree in elementary education. I taught in the public school system for three years. I now am a stay at home mom. I love teaching. I really enjoy teaching math. Math can be challenging for students, but I like to use models, manipulatives, and real world connections to help students better understand what they are doing. While I was in college I had the opportunity to tutor a second grade girl in math and she improved her grade by two ... ... More
Paul was a tremendous help to my son. He was always accessible even when he was very busy and on weekends.
He worked around our schedule and charged appropriately for his time. I recommend Paul very highly for math or Calculus. My son struggles with math but has managed to do very well in school. There are some teachers who move too quickly for him to absorb the information. Paul was very patient and explained each step in each math process for my son and then reinforced it by having him do the problems and make corrections. My son loved Paul's approach and was very happy to work with him. My son passed his course. Without Paul, that would never have happened. I only wish we had found Paul sooner. Thank you Paul!!
