My name is Katie C
. I am a licensed science
teacher looking for students in need of science and math
tutoring on Cape Cod. I have extensive experience teaching a range of science topics for students in grades 6-12. I have taught high school chemistry
and physical science
. Most recently I worked as a middle school earth science
teacher at a charter school. I have also taught computer
applications, public speaking
, and environmental studies classes at the college level. In addition to my teaching experience I have experience tutoring students in math at various levels. I also have experience tutoring standardized testing prep focused on math and writing
One of my strengths in teaching is using differentiated instruction to help each individual student learn the material in their own way. I align myself pedagogically with a constructivist approach: allowing students to examine information and construct their own understanding. I enjoy using various teaching techniques to help students gain understanding and mastery. In the classroom I use hands on projects; authentic content reading
materials; reading, writing and drawing
for understanding; even some singing
and dancing (and other kinesthetic approaches). I enjoy working with smaller groups and individual students as it allows me to use these techniques as well as more conventional strategies. By working at difficult concepts from many angles students are better able to understand. My favorite part of teaching is guiding students through this journey of understanding with thoughtful practice activities and in depth conversations about learning.
Above all I love to teach and I love to learn from my students. I am easy going and fun but require hard work from my students. This has earned me much respect from students and parents in my career as a teacher. I look forward to meeting you and helping you master science and math concepts.

I enjoy having students at opposite ends of the learning timeline. I have had elementary school students, college students, and everyone in between. It is fun for me as a lifelong learner to work with such different clients. When I was teaching I had
a homogeneous group of middle or high school students learning science. Now I have an elementary student and a college...
