Karina has been a wonderful asset to my 7th grade son this year. She is a patient, supportive, encouraging teacher who is always ready to help with whichever topic he needs the most assistance. She has not only taught him how to better organize his thoughts and structure his writing, but she has given him helpful strategies to more effectively manage his time and get the most out of his homework. Karina is also very flexible and accommodating with schedule changes when necessary. I would highly recommend her to anyone!
