All of Katie’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Katie’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been an elementary school teacher for 20 years. During these years, I taught general math, pre-algebra, and algebra I. I taught 3rd grade, 4th grade, and 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade math and language arts. I have also taught first and second grade basic skills in math and reading.

Elementary Math

I have 20 years of experience teaching math. I have experience teaching basic skills math grades 1 and 2. I have taught in self contained classrooms that included math instruction for grades 3 and 4. I have taught departmentalized classes for 6th grade general math, 7th grade pre-algebra and 8th grade algebra.

Elementary Science

Science was a required subject that I taught during the many years I taught 3rd and 4th grade levels in a self contained classroom. I earned a 90% accuracy. I must admit it has been a long time since I thought about splitting atoms! I guess I had better study up on my chemistry.

English

I am a certified teacher qualified to teach English to grades first through sixth grade. I taught English at the elementary level for 10 years at Mendham Twp. Elementary School.

Grammar

I am a certified elementary school teacher. I was employed with the Mendham Township School system for 17 years. During that time I spent 10 years teaching children in a self contained classroom for grades 3 and 4. Grammar was part of the curriculum. Mendham Township is well known for its thorough approach to learning and our students scored exceptionally high on standardized tests.

Phonics

I taught in Mendham Township, NJ for 17 years. During those years, I taught reading in grades 3 and 4. I also taught basic skills for first and second grade reading and math. Most schools teach whole language, which is why many children struggle with reading. Mendham Twp. taught reading with integrated phonics lessons.

Prealgebra

I am a certified teacher with many, many years of experience and have the ability to remove the fear and mystery some learners experience causing math anxiety. I taught general math, pre-algebra and algebra for 7 years at the Mendham Township School District. Before teaching in the Mendham Township District I was a teacher in Manassas, Virginia for 3 years teaching 6th, 7th, 8th grades general math, pre-algebra, and algebra. I love math and can make math fun and easy for any learning style.

Proofreading

As a certified elementary teacher I have had to integrate all aspects of writing into my lessons. Proofreading is a skill that takes practice and fool proof tricks to be effective and useful.

QuickBooks

I use QuickBooks to balance my check book every month. I have used QuickBooks on both an Apple computer as well as a Dell. The commands differ somewhat.

Reading

I am a certified teacher for grades first through eighth grade.
I am competent in providing a strong basis in all reading components.

Social Studies

I am certified to teach social studies in grades 1st through 8th grade, in 48 states.
I presently hold a New Jersey Teachers License.

Study Skills

I taught elementary school in Mendham Township for 17 years. Study skills, although not necessarily a graded class, is an under lying skill taught across the subjects. This is my strength. I am very organized.

Vocabulary

Vocabulary is an important component of effective writing. A varied vocabulary can make a summary more interesting and command of the language can express a thought with clarity. I have taught English/vocabulary at the elementary level for 10 years.

Writing

I am a seasoned teacher, certified to teach grades 1-8. During the 20 years I taught I was responsible for teaching writing as part of our daily curriculum. I taught writing in grades 3rd and 4th. I have also taught language arts in grades 6th, 7th, and 8th.
