Hello! My name is Katie. I grew up in Minnesota and moved across the border to South Dakota for college. I graduated in May of 2012 with a major in Elementary Education and minors in Special Education and Psychology. I also have an endorsement in Kindergarten. Upon graduation, I decided I was ready to travel and experience a different part of the country. I accepted a first grade teaching position in Yuma, AZ. It was a phenomenal experience, but Yuma is not the place for me. I am relocating to the San Diego area and would like to tutor in the evenings.
While I was in college, I worked for a preschool and an after school program. I had the opportunity in both jobs to work with children, plan lessons, teach students and assist them with homework. I believe that children learn best through hands on experiences. If a child is reading about wind, we incorporate other subjects into the reading. For example, we would read about how wind is measured, then we could build anemometers out of paper cups to enhance their experience. Through my instruction, your children will become better readers and writers as I have studied recent ways to teach. I can provide alternative methods in math to help your child develop a deeper understanding of the concept.
Each and every day provides a new experience, which shapes our understanding of the world around us. Each child deserves a quality education; every child deserves a chance for success.
