My name is Karlene. I was home-schooled for a while, and I learned so much from individualised learning. I deeply treasure such memorable times.
Today, I am the founder of Tutor UK, an English teacher, lecturer and examiner,
a life and professional coach, a motivational speaker and a therapist.
You may view my profile here.
