Karen Wilson | Private Tutor
Baylor University - Bachelors in Elementary Education
Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary - Master's in Christian Education
As an educator for over thirty years, it has been my great joy to encourage learning in my
students and form partnerships with their parents. I have a bachelor’s degree in Elementary
Education from Baylor University, a master’s degree in Christian Education from Gordon-
Conwell Theological Seminary, and Montessori teaching certification from the American
Montessori Society. In 2001, I co-founded Salem Montessori School in Winston-Salem, NC, and
served as Head of School until retiring from that position in 2019. After receiving certification
for course work through the Orton-Gillingham Academy to work with struggling readers, I
started a tutoring business, Encourage Learning, and now support students through one-on-one tutoring in reading for all ages and elementary math.
I moved to Staunton in 2021 and am thrilled to live in a community with such a rich heritage of
history, culture, and education. As an avid hiker, I head to the nearby mountain trails every
chance I get.
