Experienced Teacher and Tutor for English/Literature/Composition for Elementary, Middle School, High School and College

About the lesson

I graduated with a 3.97 GPA in literature from Dallas Baptist University, receiving numerous awards and scholarships from both the University and English Department in the early 1990's. As a part of the degree, I took numerous creative writing and technical writing classes. My experiences were enhanced by an opportunity to open and direct a Writing Center at Dallas Baptist University shortly after graduating with my BA in Literature. My responsibilities with the Center included developing tutoring programs and resources for writing scenarios in all academic fields. The center employed several tutors who used my programs/resources to assist fellow students with academic writing assignments. While working on my bachelor's degree, I also had the opportunity to teach developmental writing classes for Dallas County Community College District.

About Karon

After graduation, I was fortunate in that I immediately secured a job as an English teacher at Palmer ISD, teaching sophomore English and several combination classes of Advanced Placement English, freshmen and sophomores in one class and juniors and seniors in another. Following that job, I taught Gifted and Talented Language Arts at Ennis Intermediate.

Currently, I'm semi-retired. I recently sold a business that I owned for seventeen years. I began tutoring as a way to re-enter the field of education without committing to a full-time position, so I can have the best of both worlds: education and retirement. My experiences so far have been rewarding. One on one learning is far more productive than the standard classroom setting.
