Karin McKie by Pete Stenberg

"Karin joined Insight Education only a few weeks before our SAT/ACT Test Prep Intensive Boot Camps were about to start. But she just came in and took a test, excelled at it, got the curriculum and conquered the class! We really didn't have to worry about anything with her in the classroom. She would always be prepared with the daily class agenda and assignments and knew exactly what she wanted from her students on each class day, for a class as well as for one-on-one tutoring. I don't think I ever remember her fumbling on a grammar concept or not being able to correctly explain anything related to SAT/ACT English to the students, and there were excellent score improvements across students on our weekly diagnostic tests. The feedback we got from students and parents was phenomenal - they loved her pedagogy!" - Purvi Ruparel


"Karin is an extremely outgoing and friendly individual who makes a great tutor. She has in-depth knowledge of every topic we discuss during our tutoring sessions, and is able to explain concepts in great depth so I can understand them fully. Karin helps me understand every question I may have gotten incorrect so I can apply this knowledge to future questions and problems. She makes it so fun to learn from her about ACT and SAT reading comprehension, writing and language, which I would have otherwise found boring and too much work. With her, I feel motivated to keep working on questions and problems so I can apply the advice she has given me. Her tips and tricks are unlike anything I have learned online, from test prep books and other tutoring services, and was able to greatly improve my score. She makes it fun to learn with her since she is such a friendly individual and eager to teach me anything I ask her. " - Tara S.
