About Katherine

I hold both M.A. and B.A. in English. I have 12 years experience teaching English in Tucson/AZ public schools. I hold an AZ Dept. of Education license, grades 7-12 (valid through 2017) to teach in secondary education English and American Government . I have two years experience teaching AZ/U.S./world history in public schools. I also provide instruction with math from kindergarten levels through Algebra I and Geometry I (experienced tutored in math). I am experienced in teaching special needs students and non-native English speakers. I am patient and kind.

I tutor minors (ages 10-17) under parent/guardian supervision, usually in the residence. I teach adults 18+ in public settings such as a library or coffee shop. I require a teaching environment with appropriate table, chairs, and lighting. The student must bring books and school supplies as needed.

All parties must extend courtesy and respect in the learning environment. Initially, I speak over the phone with the student (if 18+) or with a parent/guardian (if student is a minor) to be sure I am the right teacher for the student. Together we clarify goals, times, and places to meet. I hold the right to terminate any tutoring sessions as does the student, parent, or guardian. I am available Monday-Fridays both day and evening hours, and Saturdays 9am-3pm.

I am always groomed and dressed appropriately. I only teach in smoke-free settings and have no tolerance for inappropriate behavior. I strive to make all tutoring experiences positive and successful. I teach, re-teach, and check for understanding so that the instruction is positive and effective. I instruct with my best teaching skills, yet it remains the responsibility of the student to complete his/her assignments and learning goals.

My core belief: Perseverance + Open-mind = Success
