“Thank you so much for everything. I had a great time with you! School has long been a sore spot for me and I think I finally changed the tides!”

– David, Los Angeles



“Working with Kari has allowed me to finally feel comfortable with my learning difference. Rather than dwelling on my weaknesses, together we discovered my personal strengths. What I learned from Kari extends beyond the classroom – in fact I will go so far as to classify the knowledge she shared with me as life lessons. Kari is one of the most kind, caring, and down to earth educators that I have ever come across. Without a doubt, the impact that Kari has left upon me is unlike that of any tutor I’ve ever worked with before.”

Hailey, California

“I flunked out my first semester in college and became depressed and started using drugs. When I left the drug rehab clinic I was afraid that my ADHD and math learning disability would get in the way of graduating from college. Fortunately my mom found Kari. Kari has really helped me. She taught me how to study and I began to learn how to cope with life in a whole new way.”

Kenny, Illinois

“I’ve only worked with Kari for a couple of months but already I feel like I can tackle anything! I’m so much more organized and on top of things. She gives me great ideas and strategies to help me learn and manage my life. I’ve wanted to work in the fashion industry for a long time. I actually think I can do it now! Kari is always there for me supporting me and cheering me on.”

Hannah, New Jersey

“Thank you so much for everything. I had a great time with you! School has long been a sore spot for me and I think I finally changed the tides!”

David, Arizona

“I worked with Kari when I was in high school for a while before I went to a residential school. I didn’t learn very much in the residential school, but it kept me out of trouble. When I came back to LA, I wanted to go SMC (Santa Monica College) and get a degree in business. I knew I wanted to work with Kari. I’ve passed my first English class and I’m looking forward to the next semester.”

Ethan, California

“There are no words to express how much I appreciate everything you‘ve done for me. I wish you all the happiness, joy and love this world has.”

Sandra, Wisconsin

“You are without a doubt the most astounding coach/tutor I’ve ever had!”
