My name is Katie, and I'm hoping I'll be the ideal tutor for you.
I was born and raised on the Southside of Chicago. I attended Eastern Illinois University with a bachelor's degree in Middle School Education with a minor in math. I student taught eighth grade at Orland Junior high. There, I taught eighth grade math and advanced algebra. I now work in a Chicago Charter school part time as a math interventionist for grades 5 through 8. Working as an interventionist for an RTI program has taught me so much in working with children and differentiating and assessing the needs of my students. I have personally witnessed the benefits of small groups and one on one time with a teacher. I love my job, I love working with kids!
I have experience in teaching math to a very diverse set of student with a wide range of abilities and inabilities, including students who have special needs.
I chose this career because I'm passionate about learning, and I'm just as passionate about teaching. I look forward to hearing from you!
