Hi! My name is Katherine and I am a qualified English tutor. I am also willing to tutor other subjects at the elementary and middle school level, in addition to beginning Spanish and Latin.
I have four years of tutoring experience at many levels. I spent three years employed with the Homework Helper program at White Rock Branch Library. I helped children ranging from first to ninth grade with any subject necessary, usually math or English. During my time at New Mexico Highlands University, I assisted a fellow student, who has dysgraphia (a written language disability), with her required English classes and in proofreading her essays for many other classes. This endeavor resulted in the student receiving an A in freshman composition and on all of the papers I proofread for her.
After four years on the speech and debate team in high school and one semester of public speaking class at the university level, I have a high level of proficiency in public speaking, which I could easily pass on to a tutoring client.
I am comfortable with students of any age and can adjust my methods to suit the client. Because of my vast experience with English classes and public speaking, I am adept at communicating ideas to others.
Although I don't have a car at this point, I am a pro at taking the bus to whatever location is needed. On weekdays, I am very willing to travel to Santa Fe or Espanola. On the weekends, I would only be available in Los Alamos.
Your first lesson, up to two hours, is half off! I have this policy so that I can spend time getting to know a student before getting started.
I would appreciate your time and consideration!
