About Katia


I love to study, and I believe that my passion for teaching comes from it. I have taught at a college level and at elementary school level as well. I have two degrees, one in Advertising and Communications, and another in Psychology. I am a native Spanish speaker. I believe that hard work, and the right strategy for each student will make him/her reach their goals, and improve their grades and scores. I love to see smiley faces when they are able to do something that it was a bit difficult at the beginning. Not only is a feeling of accomplish for them but a feeling of satisfaction for me!

I work as a Spanish teacher. I teach elementary school kids, and I tutor elementary, middle school and high school kids. Each student is unique and whether I am working with a kindergarten student, who is learning the alphabet, or a high school student who is working in an essay, my main goal is to keep the student challenge and interested, but not overwhelmed. I like my students to have a positive experience learning Spanish, and in my class there are songs, games, crafts, etc. All of them age appropriate. One of the first things that I work on is in teaching the students to let go the fear of speaking in another language. This approach have been very rewarding to me. I have seen the shiest students in a class, or in a tutoring lesson became fearless and active participants.

I do assign homework, and occasionally I like to check their progress with small assessments. I try to be flexible with my time, and if there is a cancellation I offer make up sessions.

As a teacher I have to pass a background/fingerprinting check. I have the documents, and I will be glad to show them to you.

I look forward to hearing from you and help you or your kids reach their goals in their studies.

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.

Spanish

A little bit about me. I have taught Spanish for over 8 years know. I am a native Spanish speaker, and I hold two college degrees. One in Advertising and Marketing, and the other in Psychology. After my son was born, I decided to work in something that permits me to be around him, so I decided to tutor. I also work part time teaching Spanish at a local private school.
