Something I really appreciated about Karen was the fact that she got to the essence of what I needed to know on every test, whether it was familiarizing myself with 19th Century Victorian authors or writing a comprehensive essay on public speaking. Add to all of that Karen's well of enthusiasm, energy and encouragement. Moreover, she always took the time to read and critique my practice essays and answer questions I had about the CSET, despite having dozens and dozens of other students at the time! - Zach Z.
Karen's class helped me pass and now I have a teaching contract. Funny thing is, I was studying so hard before I met Karen, but I wasn't studying the info in a way that I would be successful. - C.C.
I have known Ms. McDermott since she first became employed with Los Angeles Unified School District in 2001 as an instructor for our pedagogy and test preparation courses. She continues to work with our program, teaching subject matter preparation courses for new teachers. Our teachers constantly report that she has helped them pass all four sections of the CEST English exam, and she is known as “the bomb.” Many travel long distances to attend her classes. She is a talented individual and a gifted teacher!
