About Katie

Hello!

I love the learning process, and because of that, I also love to teach! Currently, I work part-time as a childcare provider, which gives me the opportunity to help K-8th graders complete and understand their homework. It's not always easy to get past those bumps in the road when it comes to progress, whether in academics or athletics. As a magna cum laude graduate from Azusa Pacific University, I understand what it means to put in hard work and see rewarding results.

My specialties include proofreading, English, political science, and American government. These are subjects and focuses that I am particularly passionate about and have excelled in throughout my academic career.

The goal for my tutored students is to help them fully grasp the knowledge they are being given. The learning process can be intimidating, but I want to turn that intimidating process into an exciting challenge.

Apart from academics, I also played Varsity volleyball and was part of the Varsity track and field team for 3 years in high school. I am interested in coaching any athletes who are seeking to improve their technique and confidence in either athletic arena.

English has always been a subject that comes naturally to me and that I thoroughly enjoy. Writing provides a sense of freedom and accomplishment and allows for individual expression. Throughout high school and college, my teachers and professors continually provided me with encouragement and affirmation with regard to my writing technique and ability to express myself clearly. I also have an eye for detail. Therefore, very few grammar or spelling errors, if any, will go unnoticed.

My political science degree competently prepared me for tutoring in this area. The majority of my courses focused on political knowledge and government functions.

Athletics require immense passion and dedication. I know how much heart it takes to commit to improvement in any sport because I went through my own one-on-one coaching in volleyball and track and field. In high school, I primarily ran the 100m, 4x100m, and participated in the long jump and high jump. Volleyball was my strongest sport. I was an Outside Hitter but also played back-row.

Please don't be shy in reaching out! I would love to get to know you and start helping you right away! Generally, I am available in the evenings after 4:45pm or 6:00pm or all day on Saturdays.

I'm looking forward to starting the learning process together! :)

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.

English

My 4-year degree from APU required me to take various writing-intensive classes and taught me how to write well-integrated and effective papers. I enjoy editing grammar and sentence structure as well.

Proofreading

Proofreading is something I enjoy doing for my peers, and I understand that it is always better to have someone else look over a paper. It is easy to miss things when you have been working hard on something for a long period of time. Grammar, spelling, and sentence structure are all things that I have spent the last four years of my academic career practicing and learning about.

Reading

I have helped K-2 graders practice their reading skills. Currently, I work as a childcare provider and am therefore skilled in communicating with young children and helping them process and engage with new learning material.

Volleyball

I played 3 years of Varsity volleyball as an outside hitter and defensive specialist. Club volleyball and one-on-one coaching elevated my performance and taught me how to have excellent technique and instinct on the court. I would love to pass on these skills and lessons to someone else, and I believe I would make an exceptional coach. Patience, hard work, and dedication are key attributes that I encourage.
