About Kathryn

I am a certificated teacher with a multiple subject credential authorizing me to teach K-8 grade. Four years ago I taught Kindergarten on a temporary contract with Laguna Beach Unified School district. The rest of the 6 years in education have been substitute teaching grades K-12. I have a bachelors degree in English Literature from UCSD, thus am proficient in helping students with literature and writing as well. My experience in the classroom has also given me a wide range of knowledge with all elementary school age students as well. I understand the importance of individualized lesson plans and teaching strategies. Working one on one with students is a unique opportunity to really make a connection and help a child learn. I have a special love also of younger kids and the way they learn. Attention spans are very short with younger students and it is important to stay animated and motivational while teaching. Developing a safe, fun, learning environment is extremely important to me. I strive to bring my love of teaching to each and every lesson.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been in education for going on 7 years as a substitute teacher. The majority of my teaching is in elementary school and I am able to confidently teach multiple grade levels. In one week I will have taught Kindergarten, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade. I am able to see the curriculum as it changes from grade to grade and feel comfortable with elementary subjects.
