WHO: Karen Carson is a licensed secondary education teacher who formerly taught high school English. After twelve-odd years of teaching at four different high schools, Karen decided that a student support services business allowed her to combine her love of working with high school and college students, her freakishly good memory for high school math, and her odd obsession with standardized testing in a way that classroom teaching did not. While she misses chaperoning the Prom, she does not miss grading papers on weekends.
WHAT: Carson Academic Consultants is committed to building confident students.
WHY: Karen believes every student has the ability to gain confidence, but not every student has the necessary tools.
HOW: (1) Cultivate each student's self-awareness regarding their thinking, processing, and learning styles. (2) Facilitate improved test scores and grades through guided practice and individualized strategies. (3) Build confidence by helping students to maximize strengths and strategize around weaknesses.
WHEN / WHERE: Typically, Karen meets students at coffee shops, book stores, or libraries for one hour sessions. Seminars take place at various locations, so be sure to check the "Seminars" section of the website for location information.
