Director of First Impressions
Karima is ecstatic to serve the Fusion family as the Director of First Impressions. Supporting students and families academically for more than 15 years, her passion lies in helping them discover and utilize their strengths as a tool to build confidence in all areas of academics.
Karima earned her Bachelor’s in Accounting from Widener University and after college, started a career as an auditor for one of the “Big 4” accounting firms in her hometown, Philadelphia. It wasn’t until her family decided to move and live abroad in pursuit of spiritual and cultural immersion that she actually discovered her true passion, teaching. She embarked on a new journey, teaching English as a Second Language in institutes, schools, and universities and as a private tutor. Eight years later, she returned to the States, and while homeschooling her own children, she continued her mission to help students achieve their academic goals as a private tutor in ESL, math, English and test prep. She has worked with students across the country, from various ages, levels, and backgrounds.
Her genuine desire to build relationships and help others is apparent to everyone she meets. When she isn’t working or brainstorming solutions, she enjoys having a nice cup of tea, exploring nature, swimming, reading, traveling and spending time with family.
