Hi, Karla here! I have an MA Educator License in English for grades 5-8 & 8-12 that I applied through two years of substitute teaching all subjects for grades 6-12. While earning my MA at Carnegie Mellon, I TAed for a 1st year ESL writing class. In NYC, I began tutoring teens at the New York State Psychiatric Institute. In all cases, I helped my students learn to parse the various texts encountered in academia, to craft arguments, and to write well. We also discussed idiomatic English and the quirks of the language. I continue to hone my skills in my role as an independent English tutor. In my spare time, I practice Latin and help my grandmother with her mac - so if you need assistance with my fav dead language or if copy/paste eludes you - I am here to help!
