Graduate of Karen’s program
The idea of doing tutoring was never something I wanted to do. Tutoring was always a scary thought to me. I thought it would be a waste of time and it wouldn’t be useful.
But once I started this program with Karen, I realized how helpful it was. Right away, I started improving so much. Throughout my day at school, I would notice little things that I was learning with Karen. As I learned more and more, I started progressing faster and faster. It was such a great experience.
It was also really hard work! To be honest, there were times when I wanted to quit because it was so hard. As an athlete, I just wanted to focus on sports!
But I am so glad now that I didn’t quit. I’m glad I took the time to learn common spelling rules, because now I understand how words are put together. This program made my life better, and I’m so grateful for it!
Here’s what I want to say specifically to other students who are working with Karen:
Sometimes you’re going to go through hard times in this program and it will feel like you’re not going to make it through. I know this from experience. I hit a road block for a couple of months and I was so discouraged that I thought I was DONE! But trust me: keep pushing. JUST KEEP PUSHING. You’ll make it, and you’ll be glad you did!
A note from Jonathan to Karen:
Thank you so much for helping me and sticking with me through this journey. I have learned so much from you. I hope you continue to teach students and help them grow like me.
It has been a true honor to work with you.
