My name is Katy S., and I am a graduate of Oberlin and Princeton. I have an undergraduate degree in English and History and a Masters in Divinity and a Masters in Christian Education. I have taught and tutored all my life, mostly reading skills as well as Coordinating Sunday School, Staff and Teaching children of all ages. I love reading, and am currently proofreading my mother's Dissertation. I am able to teach history, writing, reading and all elementary subjects.
I hold a bachelors degree in English as well as a Masters in Divinity (which is a writing based degree) from Princeton. I have worked in bilingual environments (I worked for 4 years at a Korean American Church) and love to tutor. I have tutored reading and writing skills forever, and am currently proofreading my mother's dissertation.
Plus I LOVE to talk!
As you can see I have extensive language arts skills. I was an English major at Oberlin college, have passed the English, ESL, grammar, literature, proofreading, reading, vocabulary & writing qualifications for WyzAnt's subjects and I also spent 4 years as an America Reads tutor during college.
I took speech 1 and II at seminary as well as a professional preaching task. The subject includes preparation, clear and enunciated speech, absence of distracting habits and speaking from the diaphragm.
In addition to holding a Master's in Divinity at Princeton Theological Seminary, I also took a religion class at Oberlin that outlined the 5 major faiths (Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Islam and Buddhism) comparing and contrasting their sacred texts, their view of life and afterlife and their values.
Study Skills include careful attention to the details of the assignment, practice, rewriting, flash cards, word association and memorization in order to better understand a subject. During my Bachelor's at Oberlin and my Masters at Princeton, I have found that repetition and interest are the best ways to engage with a topic successfully.
