I am a first grade teacher in a Philadelphia public school. I have a Bachelor's degree in Elementary education and am PA certified K-6 grades. I also have a Masters' Degree in Teaching English as a Second Language.
I enjoy my job very much and like to be able to give students one on one time in order to help them succeed. Focusing on specific areas really helps students catch up and go above and beyond.
I like to vary the modalities I use while teaching. I believe that a combination of visual, auditory, and kinesthetic (hands-on) methods help students to understand different concepts. I make learning fun, incorporating games whenever possible to make the experience enjoyable and relaxed for the student. I also challenge students to really reach to their next level. I find doing this, without frustrating the student can really help increase their current levels.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a first grade teacher in a Philadelphia public school. I graduated with my Bachelor's Degree in 2007 and am Pennsylvania certified K-6. Along with teaching, I have done in-home tutoring. I have tutored many different grade levels in a variety of subjects.

ESL/ESOL

I previously tutored a child who was in ESL. He had just moved here about 3 months before I began tutoring him. It was amazing to see how much his language skills improved in just a few months. Along with this experience, I am also attending graduate classes to earn a Master's of ESL.

Phonics

I am a first grade teacher and work very closely with my students to develop their phonics skills. I use many different type exercises to increase phonemic awareness and practice phoneme segmentation. Practice in these areas increases a child's reading ability. It also helps then to decode unfamiliar words so that they are able to become proficient and successful readers.

Since my son has started with her he is reading so well and is right where he should be in his grade level. Any student would be very lucky to have Kathleen as their tutor. ...
