About Katharine

Hello, future students! I'm Kate, and I'm looking forward to helping you reach your academic goals. I have tutored people since I was in high school. I interned at a small alternative school where I exclusively assisted high school and GED students.

I can tutor K-5th grade students in any subject. At a higher level, my best subjects are ESL (English as Second Language,) Spanish, and music (both theory and instrumental.) I have played the flute for 20 years and the bass guitar for 12 years. I am also qualified to assist GED students in all subjects.

I have a passion for languages and the inherent desire to help others. Having had many friends come to America with little knowledge of the English language, I understand how important it is to help those who want to learn. I am certified through Oxford Seminars to teach ESL/ESOL/TOEFL. I can tutor in the speaking, reading and writing of English.

I was in Spanish classes every year from kindergarten through fifth grade, then again in high school. I reached honors Spanish III, and earned A's every year. I traveled to Spain for two weeks, and absolutely adored not only the culture but also being immersed in the language. That trip sparked my absolute adoration for Spanish and foreign languages. I continued my education in college, where I earned a minor in Spanish. I can assist in all facets of Spanish: reading, writing, and speaking.

I come from a family of musicians and was raised listening to a wide array of genres. I have played the flute since I was in fifth grade, and I was a natural from the start. From then until I graduated from high school I was involved in as many band-related extracurriculars as I could (pep band, symphonic band, marching band.) I was never places lower than 3rd chair. In addition, I received private instruction and performed with my mentor in recitals and other various public performances. Though not formally involved in any public flute performances, I have continued to play recreationally. I can tutor flautists on reading sheet music, fingering, tone, rhythm, even instrument care.
I also play the bass guitar and can assist in reading bass clef sheet music, tablature, hand and finger movements, and instrument care.

I am very excited to get to know you and help you improve in your desired areas! I might be able to help in a subject not previously discussed, ask me! I am available daily (even weekends!) I can most likely meet any schedule request, unless I already have a student scheduled. Let's hang out and get you working toward comfort, and eventually mastery, in your "problem" subjects!

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.

Flute

I have been a flautist since the age of 10, a total of 20 years. I always placed in advanced band classes, in which I was never seated past 3rd chair. I frequently auditioned for and received the honor of performing solos in a variety of pieces over the years I performed in symphonic band. I made Georgia Middle and High School All State bands every year from 6th through 12th grade. In addition, I received private instruction for 7 years and performed in public recitals and in other venues. I am passionate about music and would love to assist budding musicians.
