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, biology 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.
