Many of my clients have expressed their willingness to talk with prospective new students. I have their names and contact information available for you on a List of References.

Feel free to email me and request that list!

The Barton program helps me every day, in school and out.


I can finally read, spell, and write like everyone else.

Before I started tutoring, I felt stupid. I couldn't read and I was depressed.


Working with Karen changed my life. I am so lucky that I met her!

If I hadn’t had this tutoring, I would still be stuck in a hole with spelling.


But as a result of doing Karen's program, words make sense now!

I wish everybody could learn this way.

Doing lessons with Karen was fun. We developed a special bond.


Now that I have graduated from her program, I have more confidence and I am ready for high school.

Here’s what I have to say to someone who needs Karen’s tutoring, like I did:


“JUST DO IT. You’ll be glad you did!”

Karen taught our son to advocate for himself and equipped him for his high school AP courses.


He would not be succeeding like he is today without Karen’s tutoring program.

I have an amazing tutor and friend named Karen. She taught me how words work.

They should teach English this way in school. Then everybody would feel smart!

I worked hard in Karen’s program, and I gradually learned to read. Now, I can even read aloud in class!


When the teacher asks, “Can anyone read this for us?” I actually volunteer as a challenge for myself.

Karen is teaching the EngIlish language the way it’s supposed to be taught.


Her approach is amazing.


It changed our granddaughter's life!


Our son not only struggled with reading and spelling but also with severe anxiety.


Karen gave him the tools AND the confidence he needs to succeed in school.

She is an exceptional tutor. 

“I thought tutoring would be a waste of time. Instead, it made my life better! I’m so grateful that I completed Karen’s program.”

For years, our son had been so frustrated at school as a result of dyslexia.


Karen’s positive, creative teaching gave our son the skills he needed to succeed.

Our dyslexic daughter went from being an insecure girl who didn’t like to read, to a confident teenager who

is thriving and loves to read!

We are eternally grateful to Karen.

It was scary when our son was diagnosed with dyslexia. But Karen helped to educate us about dyslexia and showed us how to advocate for our son. Working with her gave us confidence and peace of mind.

As a special education advocate, I have recommended Karen Isaacson to numerous clients, and all have come back to me raving about her.


She is indeed someone special.

Karen not only taught our daughter to read.


She helped relieve her anxiety and boost her self-esteem.

Karen is dear to us in more ways than we can count.
