This is my third level with Karen and I could not ask for a better teacher! I look forward to her class each week. She remembers details about her students and checks in on us week to week. She pushes us to try out new words and phrases and encourages us in our progress. In the past level we had a difficult situation with a student in the class and Karen handled it very professionally. She has a great sense of humor and makes every class fun.

Karen was very friendly and fun, but was frequently distracted, stopping instruction to talk to people in her house or to take phone calls. There was one class where she was 30 minutes late. There were at least two classes where everything felt so disjointed, I needed to review all the materials independently and research online to clarify because we got conflicting or unclear instruction. I've already started level 3 and in the two classes I've had, I feel like my new instructor does a better job of explaining context and actual usage, rather than just having us read aloud from the book. I enjoyed the energy Karen brought to each class, and appreciated how friendly and kind she was, but I wish she was better prepared and more focused during class time.

This is the second class I’ve taken with Karen and she is so personable and easy to talk with and makes herself very available for the students’ needs.
