Dear Prospective Student or Parent of a Student,

Since 1990 I have been teaching as a volunteer full-time. I have successfully taught elementary school children as well as adults. I enjoy working with a variety of subjects especially the English language, reading, and public speaking. I excel at using visual aids and combining memorization with physical movement.

Now I am looking to teach part-time to supplement my income. I have completed the Advanced TESOL certification. My training has prepared me to teach English with humor and fun. I look forward to implementing the methods taught by Dr. Harry Cotton from the Canadian Institute of English. These methods are highly effective in teaching a student to become fluent and conversational in English.

Please contact me to schedule a session. I look forward to meeting you.

This fourth-grader has been such a challenge and a joy. She loves to imitate, so that has made my work easier. She is clever but not always focused. Her increased eagerness to complete her assignments and to turn them in is a great reward.

Approved subjects

Elementary (K-6th)

I have experience teaching and tutoring children of all ages. Previously I worked with the AVID program to assist high school students prepare for college. I specialize in reading and English.

Public Speaking

I have participated in the Theocratic Ministry School for over 30 years. The assignments in this school teach how to prepare a five minute discussion on an assigned subject. The textbook, Benefit from Theocratic Ministry School Education, teaches public reading, modulation, eye contact, and even breathing. I have prepared demonstrations and interviews to be given in front of crowds of over 9,000 people.

Great Tutor — We love Katie F. My daughter was horrified at the idea of going to tutoring. Now she looks forward to going every time, twice a week. Katie F. really gets children and knows how to tune into them to bring out their greatest potential. I highly recommend her. ...
