My Story

My name is Karin Hutchinson. After teaching Algebra for several years and helping students who absolutely hated math, learn to love Algebra and overcome their math anxiety, I decided to take it viral and help students all over the world.

It really all started a long time ago when I was about 5 years old and started playing teacher. I loved school and admired my teachers.

Throughout my middle and high school years, I was a pretty good student. However, I was one of those students who worked and studied hard for the grades that I earned.

I then went on to Towson State University in Baltimore, MD to become a teacher. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education. I taught second grade for five years.

I absolutely loved those years working with 7 year olds, but I found my passion to be teaching Math. I knew that I wanted to teach higher level math classes, such as Algebra. Since that wasn't possible at this point with an Early Childhood Degree, I decided to go onto Johns Hopkins University and get my Masters Degree.

Upon receiving my Masters Degree in Education with a concentration in Math and Science Education, I moved onto teach Algebra in the middle school. I loved being able to help hundreds of students each year find success in a subject that they came to me hating! It truly was a rewarding career.

Then, I was able to finally pursue another dream, and that was to have a child of my own. Although I loved teaching, I also knew that I was meant to be a full-time mom. So, I decided to stay home and raise my two beautiful daughters.

After four years of being a full-time mom, I found my longing to teach again. Yes, I've taught my daughters a lot over the years, but I was longing to teach Math again. At the same time, I also longed to own my own business.

I tried several times to build my own website, but since I'm not very technical - it just didn't work.

Then I stumbled upon Site Build It and they helped make my dreams come true! Anyone can build a website using Site Build It - yes, even me! Now, I get to work a little from home and continue to fulfill my passion of teaching. I am so happy to be able to share the many lessons I've developed over the years. I hope that I am able to help you gain a better understanding of Algebra and possibly raise your grades in Math.

My goal as I continue building this website is to also offer worksheets and other teacher resources for the many teachers who work so hard teaching Algebra! I know how hard you work and how hard it is to come across teacher resources that you find valuable!

If you are a teacher or student and have a comment or suggestion that you'd like to share with me, please contact me via the form below! Again, my goal is to help you! If I can do ANYTHING to make this website better or easier to use, please let me know!
