Karen Scamman

Hi, my name is Karen Scamman! I grew up between California and England, settling in Texas in 2016.

I’ve been helping students reach their SAT, ACT, and LSAT goals for 8 years and tutoring for 10.  I have thousands of hours of experience!

I’ve worked with students of all ages, from elementary school to postgraduate students and have experience with many styles of learning, including students with ADHD and autistic students. I take an individualised approach with all of my students and believe that collaborative lessons are the key to success. I find it especially rewarding when I can help a student reach an “aha!” moment on a concept they’ve been struggling with. My goal is to help my students gain confidence, reduce test anxiety, and reach all their test score dreams.

I attended the honors program at Eleanor Roosevelt College at UC San Diego and studied sociology both there and at the University of Houston. I find people fascinating, so I particularly enjoyed learning about how theories on human behavior and interaction have changed over time as more and different information became available for researchers and theorists to study.

In my free time I like to read, play video games, and write short stories. I am particularly fond of reinventing fairytales, like combining Little Red Riding Hood with the Little Mermaid!
