About Kathy


Bio

I am an experienced California credentialed teacher with many years of experience in all grades from Kindergarten through 6th grade.

I particularly enjoy teaching children to read. I personalize and design curriculum specific to each student's needs in order to help the student feel successful and to target the student's areas of weakness.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a California elementary teaching credential, and I am qualified to teach all elementary school core subjects. I am now retired after having worked, in my last position, for a charter school where I supervised kindergarten through 8th grade homeschooled students in all subjects. I also have teaching experience in a traditional school setting.

Phonics

I am a California credentialed teacher. I've taught many children to read over a lengthy teaching/parent volunteer career. My strength in teaching phonics and reading is my ability to analyze the areas in which a student is struggling and then to provide specific, directed instruction in these areas of difficulty.

I have successfully taught many children to read using phonics and sight words which are not phonetic. I personalize and individualize directed instruction for each student while encouraging and engaging the student in activities designed to help the student succeed and to gain confidence.

Awesome tutor

my daughter was having problems with reading and writing and she just came in and worked with with her and changed everything. Kathy is super kind and a great person.

Carla, 126 lessons with Kathy

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Kathy has been teaching my 4-year-old son how to read, specifically the rules of past tense, and phonics and sight words (non-phonetic sounds). She is very experienced and knowledgeable that she's taught in public/private schools and is involved in homeschool communities. She's very resourceful and always use different types of materials to make lessons fun- worksheets, online programs/softwares, books, etc. She's very patient and very good with kids. My son loves Kathy and always looks forward to having lessons with her. She is also very approachable via email and always willing to take time to answer my questions after class or outside of class time. I highly recommend Kathy as a teacher for young students.

Knowledgeable

After talking to Katy I got an overview of my child’s progress which was very comforting. Katy ensured me that each child develops and progresses at a different rate. I also needed to take in account the child’s personality and how that may play a role in our child’s learning, I would have never thought of that. I love how Kathy tailors her lessons to the individual's growth/grade.
