University of Georgia (English Education)
With my certification, experience, and credentials, you may be confident that I am qualified to help your student improve his or her grades, test scores, and academic perception. I have successfully helped each of my students significantly improve in all of these areas with measurable scores as evidence.
As a private academy teacher, I understand the difficulties students have in a classroom setting. I also understand the concerns and frustration parents have with the education system. As a private tutor, I am able to provide each of my students with engaging and individualized instruction. I work with their school curriculum, so as to raise their grades, their test taking skills, so as to increase their scores, and their specific strengths and weaknesses because your student is not a carbon copy.
I graduated from the University of Georgia and I am fully certified at the T-4 level to teach English Language Arts in grades 6-12. I am currently a high school and middle school teacher at a private academy; during nonschool hours, I tutor professionally.
Literature ought to be taught holistically through using all the language arts to enable students to become active participants in their own learning. Through literature and the guidance of qualified teachers and tutors, students can cultivate and sharpen their perspectives of themselves and of society as they transact with texts as writers, readers, and interpreters. My goal for students is to help them participate in exciting, beneficial experiences with literature and encourage them to become life-long learners engaged with self, society, and the whole of life. These goals can be fostered and met through individual tutoring in which I can provide focused attention and detail to a student's needs.
During my education, I have been both a classroom teacher and private tutor. I have worked with students of high needs. I am aware that many students learn better in a more focused and individualized environment. This is not because of a difference in intelligence, but because of learning styles and multiple intelligences.
If you are an invested parent of a student or you are a student wanting to enhance your education in the language arts (grammar, reading, writing, vocabulary, test taking, etc.), I would be glad to help you.
I also work with the home-school community of students, so please contact me if this is your need.

My son is looking forward to his next lesson. I am retaining Katie to help my son improve his Reading Comprehension/Writing/Oral Communication skills so that he will not only succeed in College, but also perform well on the MCAT! They clicked right away and my son is looking forward to his next tutorial.
Katie, thank you very much for all that you have done so far and are doing...and this is just the first lesson! We are very blessed to have met you and I HIGHLY recommend Katie to EVERYONE! Every person needs to have a solid foundation in the skills that Katie can teach.
My daughter missed a lot of school this past fall while undergoing chemotherapy. Her school required her to make up a significant amount of the time missed in the presence of a GA certified teacher. Katie has been one of our angels by helping my daughter to get caught up in her AP English class (she made an A!), write some college essays, preparing her for the SAT English test and for the AP Literature exam she'll take this spring. Katie is always punctual, flexible if we need to reschedule a tutoring session, patient and very knowledgeable.
Katelyn coached my daughter for SAT reading and writing this fall. She was very patient, methodical in her approach, and focused on the critical areas of need. My daughter was very happy with the improvement of her writing scores over the tenure of her coaching. Katelyn's assignments and feedback was progressive and covered all aspects of the test. Overall we were very pleased with her tutoring and strongly recommend her candidature.
Katelyn P. worked miracles with my son, helping him add 120 points to his reading score and 80 points to writing! He really loved her tutoring style and the suggestions she gave him were exactly what he needed to hear. He literally said that the strategies she gave him were so dead on for his needs that utilizing Katie's suggestions came to him effortlessly on test date. As a result of these gains, he has elevated his stretch school list as they may no longer be such a stretch. Great tutor!
Katie returned my essay very quickly than I expected. It surprised me a lot. Because at the beginning I was not sure about the tutor I got from online and worried if she can't revise very well. But she totally changed my previous worrying, she exactly knew what I am writing and polish my English essay in standard English (I am not native speaker). I am planing to get reading and writing tutor package from her during summer vacation. She's definitely worthy for the payment. I strongly recommend her.
Katie is always punctual, prepared and professional! She is also very patient and kind. Katie has been tutoring my daughter this summer to help her get prepared for AP Lang this fall. She started with the basics and has gradually added new concepts and writing tips that will help make her successful. My daughter's confidence has increased with each tutoring session. I would highly recommend Katie to anyone that is looking to improve their writing skills!
We love Katy. My son can not wait for his next class with her. He will finish all his work to make sure I don't change my mind for his classes. She is very patient and sweet to my son. Thanks Katy for everything.
The proof reading and revisions to my marketing materials was excellent. The edits were done in a very timely matter and I would highly recommend her services to anyone.
Katie is very cordial, easy to work with, extremely professional and pleasant. She has been working with my son for about eight weeks now for SAT/ACT. Though we have not received any results yet, her diagnosis was spot on after the first session. That enabled her to tailor the lessons as per my son’s need. My son prefers working with her over one of the tutoring franchises. My son feels confident that he is going to improve on his previous score because of her guidance. She is very prompt and keeps me informed of the proceeding.
Katie has been tutoring my freshman son for reinforcing his lit/SAT/ACT skills. She comes to each session prepared and organized. She conducts interactive lessons while maintaining patience and energy through each session. Her positive communication style has been a source of encouragement and motivation for my son. It's been a pleasure to have Katie.
Katelyn is a professional English tutor. She is always well prepared for her tutoring sessions with a specific guideline and materials, and helps her student to easily understand the student’s reading assignments, such as the key meanings and the message implied in the contents of a book.
My son had difficulty understanding the author’s message between the lines of literary works, and connecting the story between chapters. From the first tutoring session, Katelyn had my son read aloud and helped him analyze in-depth meaning of each paragraph and chapter. He gradually improved his reading skills and can now enjoy reading books with self-confidence.
He said that he learned how to read literary works and communicate with the author. Katelyn is an excellent English tutor and I strongly recommend her to a student who needs to improve reading skills.
Katie is a positive, sweet person who my high school daughter related to immediately. She has been able to make difficult British literature more accessible and interesting, and has spent much time between sessions preparing learning materials which are helping immensely. Her own love of Literature is sparking our daughter's interest in the subject,
which is paying off already!
It is great pleasure to be tutored by Katelyn.
She is tutoring our family (My wife, me and my son who is 6th grade). Actually, my family came to USA 6 months ago.
She is fully prepared for the tutoring. My son became confident when he speaks in English after being tutored by her. She is really helpful to improve my English like introducing some expression used in the real meeting.
She is punctual. She never late. The best things is that she prays for our family in the end of tutor!
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
Public speaking is the primary fear in the polled human population, yet many of us cannot go through life avoiding it. Our careers and education will require us to speak publicly on some level during the course of our lives. I began as a nervous public speaker, but high school, college, and teaching have forced me to practice and overcome any anxiety. Now I speak with confidence and I even enjoy being in front of a crowd. I want to teach others to do the same.
I have given numerous presentations in my educational career through which I have developed confidence and skills in public speaking. My most recent presentation was presenting my portfolio to college professors to secure my teaching certification. Now, I daily am a public speaker to groups of 25 students.
I also took a course in public speaking and learned specific skills in speaking publicly, including skills to overcome public speaking fears. Recently, I attended a conference and participated in a public speaking session, providing me with more information about how to help others. There are specific mental, emotional, and physical techniques people need to learn in order to stand in front of an audience effectively because public speaking involves all of these dimensions of the human nature.
Public speaking is an important part of life and the confidence and ability to do it will further a person's vision for his or her life. I will gladly impart those skills from my experience and my continued experience to others.
I played varsity volleyball in high school as well as in outside leagues. Regarding coaching, I helped my coach lead summer camps and instructed high school students how to improve. I also coached a middle school girls' team while I was in college. I now play on a regular basis.
