My name is Katherine, and I love to help people learn.
I have 7 years of experience in tutoring students from Kindergarten through College and beyond. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Art Education, and a Master's in Special Education from the City University of New York. I'm also a certified teacher in New York State for Art Education, Elementary Education, and Special Education. More important than that, I work with students as individuals.
I work with students (and parents, if applicable) to create an individualized plan for success. This plan includes using student interests, strengths, and abilities to achieve success. I create a relaxed environment in which students feel comfortable trying their best to learn and succeed. I teach students multiple ways to work through problems, until one "clicks" and makes the most sense. I love to see that "Aha" Moment, when a student understands a concept that has been a struggle.
As a tutor, I specialize in math and test prep, and also tutor general K-6 subjects and English writing and grammar. I teach time management and scheduling, as well as study skills and note-taking. Additionally, I tutor computer skills for Windows programs and the internet.
I look forward to hearing from you soon!
